Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Excellently presented boutique hotel, in a prime tourist area where competition is stiff. Really enjoyed our one night stay here. Friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast. Would have loved to stay longer, maybe next time!

Room Tip: Great under cover parking for the car - lovely for an early start up the glacier.

Our family of 4 stayed one night. Very, very helpful and friendly management and staff. The rooms were lovely -- the bathrooms in particular were beautiful. The rooms were generous in size, clean, comfortable.

Beginning with helpful information and tips on local restaurants, the staff were welcoming friendly and wonderful, right from the moment of checkin. One member of staff told us she stayed there three years ago, loved it so much asked for a job the next day and stayed. We can see why she'd have done that.

We needed to check out a little later than normal. Very accommodating -- happy to help us and no charge.

Everything about our stay was great. Absolutely no hesitation in strongest possible recommendation.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask the front desk about which restaurants are a good fit and offer great food. He st...

Charming stay. We were due to stay 2 nights on a self drive tour of NZ and actually cancelled the first night to stay longer in Queenstown, thinking there wasn't much to do up at Fox but as soon as we arrived at the hotel we realised 2 nights would have been better just to sit and chill in front of their lobby fireplace. It's a place to just stay and relax. Other than the Lake and the Glacier there isn't really much to do but this little hotel is very quaint and really worth staying at(especially when compared to a lot of the mass built Copthorne style hotels in NZ). Also, must say that breakfast was made there and then for us and was delish!

We stayed here for a night in Feb 2013. When we booked in, we wished we'd bypassed Haast the night before and spent two nights here instead!. The staff were lovely and friendly and the room was one of the nicest we had in our month travelling around NZ. The breakfast was included in the price and was very nice. Only downside was we would have liked to stay longer.

Room Tip: Top floor room with a balcony overlooking the town.

We travelled from Wanaka to Fox Glacier recently & we're pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms & bathrooms. The staff were very friendly & knowledgable when it came to booking our Glacier tour. Great laundry facilities, onsite safe parking & breakfast was excellent too. I'd highly recommend this hotel & the Glacier walks!

Stayed a couple of nights in July 2013 and absolutely loved the accomodation. Stayed with the family and the kids also loved it. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. The lounge and computer access wonderful, the breakfast just lovely.

Room Tip: Such a quite little town I think any room would be great

Had a one night stay, and it was very pleasant. Rooms were modern, roomy, tidy, and clean. Service was excellent, warm, and friendly. Good value for money, couldn't ask for much more. Breakfast in the restaurant was basic but was very high quality.
