We drove from Queenstown to Fox Glacier in a day, which, for those who have ever done it is a very beautiful but LONG drive. We were so delighted when we got there but even more so when we arrived at our accommodation at Fox Glacier Lodge. What a hidden gem. It's a beautiful wooden lodge consisting of approx 8 bedrooms. The rooms are so cosy and warm and the couple who run it are extremely helpful and it's clear to see that they take great pride in the lodge. Each morning there is freshly baked bread, fresh coffee and a welcoming fire waiting in the self-serving kitchen. Also available is a selection of cereals, fruit and eggs to list but a few. Pictures and words don't do this place enough justice so my advice to anybody wishing to visit Fox Glacier is to stay here! For the perfect day out my tip is do the half day fox glacier trip from 1pm to 5pm. After the glacier trip pop into the Cook Saddle Cafe and Saloon for a delicious meal and a few beers, located on the main road, a stones throw from the Lodge.
