Ideally situated in Fox Glacier, convenient for touring the area and handy for bars/restaurants. The motel rooms are reasonably sized but we found that they lacked ventilation since the only window was in the bathroom, opening the patio door made the room quite noisy. We...More

As the crow flies it's probably only 20 km or so..and you can take a helicopter flight from the town up over the glaciers to view Aoraki. By road it's probably closer to 500km!! Your on the other side of the southern alps... More
