Deb the hostess was very warm, welcoming and offered some great tips on what to see and do. The amenities was individual facilities - no communal showering or toilet facilities which was really pleasant. Sometimes it is nice not to share your bathroom experience. The toilet and showers were really clean and spacious.

These cozy cabins are in a prime spot in town, right near the best restaurants and across from Fox Glacier Guides. While the nearby campground creates a bit of an odd setting, and the accommodations aren't especially memorable (although the spa tub is a nice touch), you can't beat the location and it's a great value. Note that it's a... More

We stayed in a unit with spa bath and gas fire which was very cosy and warm after our walks to the glaciers. Very helpful host (lovely dog), lent us a torch for the local glow worm walk and raised a St Andrews flag in our honor!

Really nice place. We meant to stay in Fox only for one night but we ended up staying for 3. It felt like perfect honeymoon location. Best accommodation we had during our holiday in New Zealand. Great value for money. Enjoy the spa with bottle of champagne :)

Deborah is a very nice and helpful manager/owner. She welcomed us, showed us to our rooms and the beautiful dining room where our breakfast was served, and immediately we knew that we were going to have a very comfortable stay. The lodge is not far from Lake Matheson and Fox Glacier is only a short distant drive away. Breakfast was... More

Another excellent stop over spot, drove in on our way to Omaka Classic Fighter show, facilities are excellent with individual self contained shower & toilet bathrooms, a lovely little camp kitchen very busy the night we arrived as the place was very full, not surprising really as this place has it all, reasonably priced, lovely chalet & lodge rooms, powered...

We stayed two nights in the B&B lodge. Excellent warm ensuite room. Comfortable queen size bed with sparkling clean ensuite. We were even given the key to the adjacent room to put our bags in (so we had more space). Very hearty breakfast provided by our lovely host Deborah. Fresh blueberry muffins were warm when we got back from our... More

I loved Fox Glacier Lodge. I stayed two nights in a queen ensuite. It's pretty simple and rustic, but has a lot of nice personal touches and is very clean. Very good and hearty breakfast prepared in the mornings. There are bikes available for use to ride around town, which I utilized to get around and to go to Lake... More

Top accommodation in a top spot. Having previously stayed in Fox, we have finally found the best accommodation provider over all levels. Warm & comfortable, with very thoughtful extra touches. Exceptional hosts were "the icing on the cake".

Alvin could not have been a better host. His tip not to trudge back to Franz Joseph Glacier ("seen one glacier, you've seen them all") have us more time to really enjoy our stay: a dawn walk around Matheson Lake; walking to the glacier; and using the free Lodge mountain bikes to ride the nearby cycle way. We were in... More
