We had 2 nights in this nice B&B with a fantastic view on Mt. Cook. Host Karen is very helpful & gave us very good help and advices for our journey! The breakfast was really nice with cold & hot food.

Great B&B in a fantastic location. We were welcomed very warmly by Karen, with a cuppa in the main house. She was an excellent source of local (and wider...) knowledge of what we should see, and helped re-arrange the time of our helicopter flight to give us the best chance of a good flight. She really helped to maximise our... More

Karen did a great job of explaining all of the paid and free activities in the area. She went out of her way to help with restaurant reservations and showing us where to get a million dollar picture (at 7:00 am). Rooms are clean and nice. Breakfasts are very good and give you plenty of energy for your daily activities.... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night and really enjoyed it. Karen is a wealth of information and very friendly. We enjoyed our lively conversation and her help in planning the next portion of our trip. The rooms were comfortable and warm. The views were stunning!

Good location, only a few minutes drive to Lake Matheson and Fox Glacier town and beautiful views. However, the room was dated, overpriced and having to pay for Internet access was a let down. Karen has a great knowledge of the local area however, at times, we felt she wanted to set our agenda. We did not enjoy our stay.

A little disappointing after our last visit in 2010 as our room was looking somewhat tired and dated. The duvet cover was frayed and the TV was one of the ancient boxy types which only received a few channels. The car parking area consists of what appears to be gravel and ash and as a result it is very mucky... More

We mostly stayed in Hostel for a budget accommodation since most of our time were spent on traveling and activities. When I chanced upon Fox Glacier Mountainview B&B during my planning stage, I told myself I NEED to book this, and I am proud that I did that. We spent 2 nights in Fox Glacier and 1 of them in...

Beautiful setting with nice basic rooms. Although we felt there was an "old" smell in the room. You can't beat the setting. Breakfasts were substantial but we missed the fresh fruit. Karen was a most willing and helpful hostess.... a bit overpowering but fun to chat with. Very relaxing location, One of the best photo we took in NZ was... More
