Unfortunately we didn't get much time at Fox. We arrived late and got a great introduction to the room and advice on where to eat in town (fair warning: there aren't many places and in our experience the food was decent, but a bit overpriced)
The ensuite room we stayed in was clean and tidy, not overly modern (if that's what you're after), but very comfortable and enough space. The bathroom fixtures were again not modern, but very well kept and clean and worked perfectly. We really appreciated the electric blanket, and the bed was the best we slept in during our 7 days in the south island.
Karen herself was very chatty and helpful, fixing us up with a beautiful breakfast and some advice for our glacier helihike later that day. The views from her place are just as pictured, beautiful snow capped mountains reflected perfectly in the picnic pond and immediately surrounded by a few quiet fields.
