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

We hadn't booked anywhere in Fox Glacier, in fact we hadn't planned on staying there at all. We had driven up from Queenstown and hadn't really appreciated the distance and we arrived in Fox Glacier "driving on fumes". The petrol gauge had lit up several miles before we got there so we decided to stay for the night. Eventually we... More

We had a lovely stay at Fox Glacier Lodge. The rooms were comfortable and really clean. Handy to the pub and restaurants. Also thanks for the lend of tools to fix a small problem with our motorcycle. We would stay again.

Very cozy, with wood all over- walls, ceiling and floor. Keep the curtains drawn as the light in the evening attracts small insects. The shower experience was very good after a long day of driving and then trek upto the glacier view point. Breakfast time was when I bonded with other residents of the lodge, and it seems the Helicopter... More

After a long days drive this place served the purpose of having powered sites, and bathroom facilities. It has blurred into the memories of all the other ones we stayed at. The only thing that sticks out was that we were given two coupons for accessing the wifi. The were for 100 mb each. What a joke.

We stayed at the mezzanine for one night and regretted that we did not stayed for more. The place is very clean and beautiful. There is sofa and dining table at the lower floor. There is a jet spa in the bathroom and a separate shower area. Unfortunately we did not have time to use the jet spa. Full set... More
