If you're looking for basic, functional accommodation in Fox Glacier then the High Peaks hotel should be what you need. It's not the most obviously attractive of hotels (it still looks more like the motel that it used to be) but the rooms are large and clean, with a nice bathroom, and there is a small launderette on the premises. The location is good too: less than a kilometre from the centre of Fox Glacier and a short drive from beautiful Lake Mathieson.
Our only gripe was that we we were a little disappointed with the quality of our meal in the restaurant (we had arrived fairly late on a very wet evening and had decided to dine in). The restaurant staff were, however, charming, as was the very hepful lady at reception.
