Didn't expect to be staying in an on- site pre fab, but they are great. Spacious with all you need, smallish bathroom but fine. Fridge and small kitchen area. Beds were excellent. Nice patio attached. Short walk to the main street where you could get a meal. Also walking distance to the Kiwi breeding center. All in all very comfortable... More

Loved this little cottage that we spent 2 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was huge enough for 3 people. Plenty of space for the 2 of us. We got a queen and a single bed. Comes with a kitchen whereby wee can do some light cooking. Highly recommended

We have reserved a two bedroom cottage for two nights and most things exceeded our expectations. The receptionist has provided great service - providing information around town, walked us to our cottage.

We stayed in the mountain view cottages- they were fabulous, the views of the glacier were lovely, if you opened your curtains you could see it from the snuggliness of your bed. The cottages were well appointed with tea/ coffee/ fridge/ kettles and crockery. It's a short walk to shops and restaurants and also to Fox Glacier Guides. Would definitely... More

You check in down the street from the cottages in a separate building. Love their heating system and heated blankets. Their free Wifi is amazingly fast and you're not limited to a certain MB like most hotels. Wasn't too happy that their laundry services are only available from 1:30pm-midnight and require NZ coins (Arrived so late that I wanted to... More

As a family of four we stayed in the 2 bedroom detached unit facing the road. The unit looked as if it had recently been revamped, so the bathroom was quite modern.

The cottages are located just off the main street, within easy walking distance of everything in town but also really quiet and private. The cottage itself was a good size, clean and comfortable. However, it takes a little longer than 10 minutes for the heater to actually get going. The staff were fairly welcoming and go through the different restaurant... More
