The Reflection Lodge is a lovely B&B just down the road from the town of Fox Glacier. The guests have a large, nicely furnished family room with fire place to themselves. The family's living quarters are adjoined next to guest space. The bathrooms/bedrooms (pleasantly furnished) were very clean and comfortable. One bathroom across the hall way was not an issue...

It is a beautiful property with rooms having private patio and opening into garden. Ralene greets with tea/coffee and cookies. The rooms are quite clean. They have a lake in the property itself and one can get views of fox glacier.

Not one of the best accommodations on our trip to NZ. We weren't aware that "private bathroom" did not mean ensuite, so it was a bit strange to have to go down the common hallway on the way to/from the bathroom. (The King room with the ensuite wasn't available when we booked.) Shower pressure was very low, and toiletries were... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Reflection Lodge. I am pleased you found the place to be very quiet and tranquil. A most asked question by my guests is "is the water drinkable?" and I am proud to be able to say that it is perfectly safe to drink from the taps. I am sorry you felt awkward... More

We lucked out and managed to book a couple of rooms with Raelene at Reflections Lodge. A super cute homestay B&B with a beautifully manicured and tended front lawn with pond and rose/English garden backyard. The lodge is half way between the main highway and Lake Matheson. Raelene and Colin were great hosts, giving us great tips on what to... More

We had a positive experience staying at this bed and breakfast near Fox Glacier run by a friendly couple, Raelene and Colin. The home was clean, well-decorated, and had lovely mountain views. We were greeted with hot tea and cookies upon our arrival, which was nice. We stayed in a bedroom with a queen-size bed and a private but detached... More

Cosy little place with beautiful gardens. The hosts were generous and helpful. Thankfully the mist was down while we were here so there wasn't much in the way of helicopter noise (they're based right next door to one of the helipads).
