My adult daughters and I had the opportunity to stay at Ropatinis recently. On arrival a plate was lovely fruit cake was delivered to our unit. We were in one unit which was roomy and very well appointed. The wooden furniture, made from local timber by Trish’s husband was very unique and suited the environment. The room was spotless. The beds were very comfortable with electric blankets on all 3 beds. Waking up hearing the lambs over the fence and eggs for breakfast being laid would be an experience so many people would never have the chance to experience. Breakfast was on another level. Not the ordinary continental! Of course fresh farm eggs! Wild meat cold meats. Home made bread. Trish joined us and an American family for breakfast and everyone enjoyed sharing travel stories and listening to suggestions from Trisha for local sights etc. After breakfast Teddy, the wee wonder dog, gave a lovely show of tricks for the American children. It was just a lovely time and a very homely experience. If you like a stay with a bit of that rustic rural feel then Ropatinis is tops. Thank you Trish. A delightful hostess with a great B and B

With virus fears reducing the number of Chinese tourist and avalanches closing the only road in from the north for a month, Fox Glacier was almost deserted when we were there in February. Ropatini's was feeling the pinch but still provided a quality stay. Rooms were large and comfortable and breakfast was above the average B&B fare. Hosts Trish and Collin were congenial, helpful and provided great company around the large breakfast table table crafted by Collin. We enjoyed our stay and hope their season improves.

The accommodation was perfect - all we needed for a short stay in Fox Glacier. Loved the way Trish and Colin joined us for breakfast (which was delicious BTW) and gave us tips on where to go/what to see. Would highly recommend!

Trish and Colin run a great place that is truly country. Fantastic welcome in a downpour and lots of suggestions for where to eat, hike and explore. The breakfast part of the stay was like being with family and chatting over coffee well after finishing the meal. Colin is a gifted Woodworker— self Taught after retiring from being a Chef. He incorporates found items like shells and stones into the live edges of his tables before sealing. The huge slab breakfast table includes pieces of jade and some gold flecks he got from panning the river in the dry season. Each room has counters and shelves that he has handcrafted. Trish is a master at getting her rescue dog Teddy to do tricks. He goes way beyond shaking hands. Highly recommend you visit them!
