Room is very clean and spacious, we are so amazed by the brand new facilities in the bathroom. Good location from Fox town as well as Lake Metheson. And it was so dark and quite at night, it's very good for star gazing at the backyard.
Service of hostess Marlene was superb. We arrived at a time when Haast highway is closed, and we planned to go though this section of highway the next morning. Marlene kept us informed of the latest information ever since we arrived. By around 9am the next morning, Marlene got the news the highway will open at noon and suggested us to go there as quick as possible, to avoid any possible road closure again (and it DID close again the next day!!! Those affected had to route through Arthur pass, Christchurch, Lake Tekapo, Queenstown to Wanaka, a whopping 800km!). We safely passed the affected area and arrived in Wanaka in the afternoon as planned. I was so pleased that I rung up Marlene to show our deepest thanks for the assistance she provided, which makes a pleasant memory for our visit of glacier town.
