“Great location, great rooms, so never mind the weather.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2010

By chance we came across Te Weheka just a few minutes walk out of the town itself. The rooms ( which we were invited to view first) were spotless, spacious with a fabulous en suite. For the traveller, the guest laundry was a lifesaver. The manager was very friendly and welcoming giving us a great restaurant recommendation for the evening's meal. We found the breakfast to be more than adequate with full buffet choices. We did get the 'out of season' discounted rate and did find this great value for money. If you go and are disappointed because of the weather, you'll need to change your attitude because there's no guarantee the weather will change. It's still a beautiful country.

This Motel/hotel is within walking distance of restaurants and helicopter booking offices. It is modern with up to date designer rooms. A wonderful breakfast is included and the host invites you for a 6 o'clock drink. The host was competely informative and encouraged us to take a helicopter flight on the afternoon of arrival - weather was perfect - you never know what the next day will bring - wise words and good advice. We have wonderful pictures.

Friendly manager who hosted a very sociable pre dinner drink gathering. We welcomed the chance to eat in the restuarant as Fox Glacier is small with few restuarants but we also had good advice about where else to eat.

Laundry faciltiies and internet are available but a small charge is made. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable.

We were made to feel very welcome.

A small hotel with good quality, spacious rooms, a decent restaurant and friendly staff. A glass of wine is provided in the guest lounge in the evening and on one of the nights we were there a travelling group of musicians gave an excellent performance. Very convenient for any of the activities which you can do.

This place ticked most of the boxes for us. It was conveniently located, the service/welcome was efficient and friendly, the room more than adequate. It was pouring with rain the night we were there so opted to dine in. Unfortunately the food was a big disappointment as was the cooked breakfast the next morning. With the room rate plus the dinner, the bill was sizeable in the morning and consequently it didn't seem good value. I would recommend this hotel, but maybe I would have enjoyed my stay in FG more if I hadn't dined there.
