Very cute little lodges. Clean and tidy with everything we needed from the kitchenette. Parked our car immediately outside and only 3 stairs to lift our bags up. Lady in reception was friendly and even let us use their hire bikes for free for an afternoon. The only fault i could find was with the shower having inadequate drainage or... More

We arrived late to a welcoming looking room. It was cold so I was delighted when the owner turned the inviting gas fire on. The bath tub was lovely. Place clean and tasteful. Price steep for what you get. It is self catering which does not interest me. I also don't like the breakfast left in room. Fruit was not... More

We were due to camp here with our 2 children but by the time we arrived the weather was less than ideal. The owner was very helpful and we decided to stay in a chalet. The room was immaculate and very very nicely done with great facilities. Highly recommended!

The accommodation was satisfactory enough, but the owner was rude and the place was sandfly and mosquito infested. I traveled all over the North and South Island and I've never been encountered more elsewhere.

The manager is unfriendly and rude. Lacks commen courtesy. There are much better places nearby. In the time of social media, hotels who want to attrack business cannot afford to be backward and rude. Peace

Beautiful new chalets and a great location, although the owners welcoming did not live up to this. We didn't feel welcome at all, we wouldn't encourage you to spent a dollar to fund these rude and grumpy people.

Mid November, my wife stayed 2 nights at Fox Glacier Lodge. We made our booking online without prior knowledge. The welcome given by the owner, Deborah, was exceptional. She completely understands the need to make guests feel most welcome and to give advice on what is to see and do at Fox Glacier. Our accommodation was on the first floor,... More

This lodge was the most disappointing of our 9 day trip to the South Island. We booked online for an upper floor queen room with mountain view (rate approx US$125/night) from a 3rd party provider. The 'room' turned out to be 2 rooms split by a public hallway (made us feel like being in a dorm). The main room was... More

After deciding on a visit to Fox Glacier, instead of the busier Franz Josef, we were fortunate to find room at the Lodge. We were welcomed with the Canadian flag by the entrance and wonderful hosts who helped us with very useful advice on local sites and services (and a welcome snack). The accommodation was the finest of our month... More

Our family of four (two teens, two adults) recently stayed 3 nights in a family unit. Cosy timber decor, lots of heating, fresh, clean and comfortable. Great to sit outside in the evenings. Sufficient kitchen facilities to make simple dinner or breakfast. Incredibly hospitable management who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Walk to shop &... More
