Recent guest reviews

The staff member (Freddie) was very friendly and very helpful and pointed us in the right direction for photo opportunities. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean and very warm. We didn't have our meal there but we did enjoy a lovely breakfast in the morning overlooking a very frosty Fox Glacier.

As mentioned it the best accommodation if you are travelling to the glacier country. The room is clean, beds are comfortable, very friendly and professional staff with excellent in room facilities and amenities. Special thanks to Freddie at the desk for being very helpful, with his right attitude went his way out to assist me with my minor ice climbing injury. Breakfast is with right selections you need to start your day in Glacier country. I strongly recommend all to stay here.

These were clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. I had an excellent Lamb with blueberry sauce, and my wife had the fish with a butter sauce. Service was very good.

Comfortable and spacious room close to town. Breakfast was excellent, served in the dining room. There is also a very comfortable guest lounge on the 1st floor. Very good value for money. Very helpful and friendly reception.

This hotel by far is the best hotel in Fox Glacier. We drove around to every motel hotel in town when looking for a room. This hotel is by far has the best accommodations. Modern rooms. Comfortable beds. Elevator. Good heating. Free parking. Good wifi. Considered 5 star in this neck of the woods and I would agree!

Good, clean basic place. Friendly staff at check in with helpful ideas for the day and restaurants for dinner. Nice hot breakfast served in the morning. Would stay again if I was in the area. One of the best places to stay in Fox Glacier.

A small boutique hotel in Te Weheka close to Fox Glacier. Room is spacious, clean, quiet and well appointed. The bathroom is large with separated bathtub and shower stall. The common room can contain a large group of guests with a beautiful fireplace. Restaurant offers a variation of well prepared local cuisine: venison, local fish...dishes.

Stayed here for three nights. The room was comfortable and clean / tidy. Fairly simple however it ticked all the boxes plus breakfast was a bonus. Would happily stay here again, staff were very friendly.

From the moment of arrival, Freddy not only made us welcome but displayed a knowledge of the area that was very impressive. We were there two days and the whole team were very friendly and committed to serving the guests at the highest level. But Freddy was the standout - a fabulous ambassador for both the hotel and the area. His suggestions were followed and we had a fabulous time. Also enjoyed the lounge on the 1st floor.

I had the opportunity to stay at this lovely hotel as I was traveling through the South Island. Everyone at the hotel was smart and very friendly. My room was immaculate and always in perfect form whenever I returned. It is in a perfect location to walk everywhere in town. I also happened to leave a small bag with my harddrive and cables which the staff found and immediately they called my guide. The hotel mailed it to me in Christchurch at no charge. That is the height of real service.
