“Nice clean friendly site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We stayed in a large, well equiped self contained cabin, that could easily accommodated 5 people, although there were only two of us The kitchen was clean and had everything you would need. We only stayed one night but could easily have stayed longer if time had permitted. The views of the mountains were wonderful and the town is only a short walk away. The TV worked perfectly well and we had no trouble with the wi-fi. Reception although not overly friendly did their job fine.

Sadly, this place let us down - actually the only place in the whole country where we experienced poor customer service - check in took about 20 minutes by two girls who did not smile once and just seemed like they couldn't care less. Things didn't improve when we got to our room, which was dirty beyond reason, full of flies and nothing worked (heater, tv). I would advise you to avoid it, although I guess there aren't many options in Fox.

We stayed for two nights in a campervan and were glad we had booked because it was very busy. The site is very conveniently sited for the small town and the heliport and was exceptionally clean and well appointed. Despite being full, there we're sufficient facilities, though it was a shame the hand dryer, and then the hair dryer in the main ladies toilet/shower block didn't work! The staff were really helpful with booking our heli-hike and, overall, we were very impressed.

We stayed at this holiday park for one night in Jan 2014. We had a private double room (which also had two bunk beds, so it could have been for four people). There was a heater in the room. Other than that, very basic - just a bed and a chair. There is a mattress, pillowcases and one sheet on the bed, but extra linens (to cover yourself with) can be rented for an additional charge (at the time of our stay it was 6 NZD per person). We had sleeping bags from our recent hike, so we used that instead. The bed was comfortable enough, and we had a good night's sleep.
The park's bathrooms were plenty, clean and had lots of hot water. There was also blow dryers in the women's bathroom. There is a laundry room with two (or three? can't remember) washers and dryers each that can be used for a nominal price (coin operated). It was very busy in the evening at the laundry room, but we still managed to wash our clothes.
There are two big cafeterias with enormous cooking areas and lots of seating. There are no dishes/cutlery/condiments or anything else provided in the kitchens, however, one can rent a set of cooking pots/utensils/dishes for about 5 NZD for the duration of your stay. This was very helpful as restaurants in Fox Glacier are quite expensive. There is one general store that has an ok selection of groceries.
The service at the Park was excellent, we have no complaints. There was also plenty of parking. The price was quite good too, so I'd recommend this place to other staying at Fox Glacier.

Stayed 1 night in a self contained cabin. It was very small but nice and clean. OK for a night or two but if staying longer the lack of space could be annoying. Amazing views of the mountains from the site.

The facilities in this resort are much better than those in Franz Josef. Internet is available from IKS, IAC and Zenbu. The kitchen is very large & everything works. There's a super playground for kids and it's only about 1 km from the town centre

Stayed 2 nights in cabin and was happy with the accommodation. Bit cramped for 2 couples but was fine. Cabin was clean and every thing worked. Some outdoor chairs or a bench would have been welcome. Price was ok. and would stay there again. Not the best park we stayed in during our trip, but far from the worst. Staff very help full and friendly.
