“The place to stay in Fox Glacier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2010

A small hotel with good quality, spacious rooms, a decent restaurant and friendly staff. A glass of wine is provided in the guest lounge in the evening and on one of the nights we were there a travelling group of musicians gave an excellent performance. Very convenient for any of the activities which you can do.

This place ticked most of the boxes for us. It was conveniently located, the service/welcome was efficient and friendly, the room more than adequate. It was pouring with rain the night we were there so opted to dine in. Unfortunately the food was a big disappointment as was the cooked breakfast the next morning. With the room rate plus the dinner, the bill was sizeable in the morning and consequently it didn't seem good value. I would recommend this hotel, but maybe I would have enjoyed my stay in FG more if I hadn't dined there.

We spend 2 nights in this hotel. Room and bathroom very good. View on the mountains.
Place to wash and dry your clothes.
Very gentle people and the one who was on the reception told us what to do and advised us to take a helicopter flight. What we did. Marvellous!

We enjoyed being there!

This small hotel in Fox Glacier does not look much from the outside, but the rooms and bathrooms are extremely well equipped. They have every modern convenience, including a small music system, as well as very comfortable beds. The only thing that would have made our stay a little more comfortable would have been air conditioning. It was extremely hot the day we arrived there and with the room facing the sun, it took a little while to cool down. The hotel also has an excellent lounge on the first floor with comfortable sofas and chairs for guests to use. The breakfast was very good and all in all an extremely good hotel in the most magnificent surrounding scenery.
