You were certainly two of the wettest people we've ever seen in reception! It was our pleasure to help you out - that hot shower must have been a delight after the day you had. Hopefully your onward journey to Westport was somewhat drier.

We spent a pleasant night here. Great staff with helpful suggestions on where to go and what to do, such as best place to view the Glacier, and where to see the glow worms. Would certainly recommend as a great place to stay.

Thank you for pointing out that the unit was clean and well equipped. My apologies for your unfortunate experience. On inspection of the unit we could find no sign of fleas, but on your information have treated room to avoid any future occurrences.

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.
