It appears everything including hotel rooms has an inflated price in both Fox Glacier and Franz Josef so we paid big city price for small town room. Having said this we had a room on the ground floor with a huge and very comfortable bed....More

We're happy to hear you had such a comfortable stay with us and will pass on your comment about the cleanliness to our housekeeping team. The double glazed windows in the rooms help reduce outside noise and our road really is very quiet at night....More

Good and friendly receptionist and for the A$259 for our superior Queen Studio was underwhelming after climbing up 16 steep stairs. Our room was clean but not much more can be said except the TV whilst it worked well was small.More

While booking rooms in various places I forgot to change the book-in dates for our stay here. When we arrived they said they couldn’t provide rooms for our stay. The lady was so helpful in providing us with an alternative location. Crisis averted.

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.
