Stayed one night on our way through the south island, stayed in one of the disability rooms which was spacious especially the bathroom. Room was clean and tidy met all expectations. Management was friendly, knowledgable, and efficient. Good location to the few restaurants.

We stayed here and found the staff very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Good location and very close to everything. Very comfortable rooms. It was a pity the spa wasn’t working. We walked just a short distance to see Glow Worms.

All our rooms have built in heating and a ventilation system to keep the air fresh. The rooms are also double glazed which keeps them quiet and warm. We hope to see you in Fox Glacier soon.
