“great location, needs a refurb”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2006

we stayed for one night and if we had booked another I would have changed hotels.

The staff was friendly. The hotel looks great from the outside but the rooms are in need of a refurb. You can hear your neighbours, specialy when they are having a shower or use the toilet.

I was a little disappointed as this was the most expensive hotel we stayed in on this trip and it was also our last night, so we had hoped for something a little nicer.

  • Liked — easy to find
  • Disliked — the rooms are old and need refurb
  • Tips/Secrets — go on a helicopter flight to the glaciers
  • Stayed November 2006, traveled as a couple

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2006

We stayed in various hotels around the South Island and although this was by no means the cheapest, it was the only one we could find any fault with. The public areas were very nice and there was a friendly environment in the bar. We had previously stayed at the Scenic Circle hotel in Dunedin and were expecting a similar standard as the price was much the same. However the rooms at the Scenic Circlu hotel at Fox Glacier were very disappointing with very basic bathroom arrangements.
