“Stay here if you're overnighting in W coast!”
Reviewed November 13, 2006

All I can say is "wow". Since Fox glacier is a small town I was expecting a motel... but instead the room finishes are top notch---definetly the best hotel stay in our 2 wks in New Zealand! I don't know how the staff clean the place, but everything looks brand new! Friendly staff, good breakfast. TOTALLY recommend this place if you are staying in Fox/FJ overnight!

  • Liked — The clean, spotless, luxury rooms!
  • Disliked — none!
  • Tips/Secrets — definetly stay here if you are in Fox/FJ!

My husband and I have just spent 2 nights at Te Weheka Inn.
We found it a very comfortable and pleasant experience. Very comfortable bed, well appointed room, good sized bathroom.
With only 2 floors was impressed with a very modern lift, great with plenty of luggage. The breakfast was very good, plenty of choice. We had a cooked breakfast which was served very quickly. The chap on reception was very helpful with all the local knowledge. We did a 1/2 day walk on Fox Glacier which was
a great experience. The local cafe's served great food and wine.
Had the best ever whitebait Omelette with approx 250g of whitebait. The best on the West Coast. Would recommend the whole experience and would stay there again with no hesitation.

We stayed at this hotel for just one night but after a days hiking around Fox Glacier, what a welcome relief to be able to stay at such a comfortable place. We were amazed at the size of the rooms each with a balcony with views of the town. Our room had a wonderful bathroom with large bath & separate shower and was the perfect place to dry off & clean up before a short walk down the town to eat in one of the restaurants. Breakfast was also very good and the staff were very freindly and helpful.
Although Fox Glacier is a very small town that exists because of its tourist attraction, we were impressed by the high standard of this hotel and loved the clean, modern, warm & friendly relaxed atmosphere that was typically Kiwi, and rated as one of the best rooms we stayed at on our recent tour of NZ.

Great hotel, very modern with every comfort thought of. Really comfortable beds which are needed after a day of hiking. Superb breakfasts. All balconies had amazing views over the village and were a great place to watch the sun setting. Within walking distance of all (about 3) of the restaurants in Fox. The evening we arrived we were invited to drinks and snacks in the lounge (complete with open log fire) which was a lovely start to our stay and a good place to ask Steve the hotel manager any questions concerning excursions, restaurants etc, he is a very friendly chap.
We stayed with our two children and had two rooms.
Well worth the money and the top end of the acommadation market in Fox.

We could not find fault with this hotel. Fox Glacier Village is remote, and these newly refurbished rooms were a delight. The bathroom was outstanding with large shower, drying bars, all you could want. My wife is demanding, and she was pleased. Everything was clean and neat. Breakfast was good, but we did not eat dinner at their restaurant opting instead for cafe's down the street. Staff was very friendly and helpful in directing to local attractions. I recommend most highly.

The Te Weheka really is nothing special. But there's not much choice in Fox Glacier. The rooms are OK; the food is not great. You're carrying your own bags in. Many rooms don't have great views. You're on a major road, so you're probably going to hear traffic. It's clean, the rooms are a decent size and it's within walking distance of everything. It's OK but there's nothing to rave about.

This was THE best place we stayed on our 3 week tour of the south island. The staff were really friendly, the rooms spacious and immaculate. The whole place has that certain something both in the way that it's been designed and the way that it feels - the thought that has gone into everything is evident.

Breakfast was complimentary and the food was great. We were offered a complimentary drink in the lounge during the early evening but sadly were unable to take advantage
