We enjoyed staying here while on a tour. The room design wasn't the typical cookie-cutter style. Instead it had rustic charm and was large, clean, comfortable with all the amenities we needed. The entire staff were friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was fine. We also enjoyed the nice lounge. Just up the road we discovered glow worms on a night time nature walk. Helicopter tours are also within walking distance. A really nice little place to stay.

We had a great stay at this lovely hotel. Great sized room, freshly cooked breakfast, nice extras such as quality toiletries, trying room, guest laundry. The hotel over-delivers. Ideal location to explore the glaciers and most importantly the staff were wonderful. Without exception, everyone was helpful and smiley, lending is ponchos when our coats for soaked, giving great advice on dining out and trips. Highly recommended. They are doing a great job!

This was a wonderful hotel to stay at. We had a beautiful room with fabulous views over the hills and the town. The room had all the home comforts we needed and a lovely bathroom. We stayed here for two nights but wish it had been longer! Apart from the lovely room there is a really beautiful guest lounge where everyone is invited to meet for a free glass of something before dinner. We had great chats with other travellers here. Breakfast was excellent and all of the staff absolutely lovely. There is loads to do around here - the glow worm caves up the road were magical as was Lake Matheson.

Room Tip: Lovely and quiet but glacier helicopters do take off near by.

We were a bit appalled by the surface grime and fingerprints on nearly all the surfaces. This may have been a rather nice hotel about 15 or 20 years ago, but it is now quite worn out and in need of a thorough cleaning and refurbishing. Freddie, the gentleman at the desk was very helpful and the breakfast was more than adequate. But overall not a nice place to stay and definitely not worth the price.

Room Tip: Don’t stay here...

This was one of the more expensive places we stayed while visiting NZ. To call this place "boutique" is a real stretch. It's pretty much a Holiday Inn type of hotel that you would find in the states. Nothing special at all, and certainly not even close to justified the premium price. The staff was very nice, but as I have said many times, who isn't in NZ. Everyone is very nice. The biggest plus was it did have a good location to restaurants in town. A short walk. The rooms were OK and I could give it a grade of Average, but I just can't get pass the amount of $475 NZ dollars for one night. I know there are better options while staying in Fox Glacier.
