Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fairly basic site with not too many pitches available. Facilities were OK but nothing special, being poorly lit and not the cleanest. Overall adequate but no more. They offered a walk to a local glow-worm cave which we didn't do but which might have made the stay more exciting. The only way to really see the glacier is to hike to it or go by helicopter.

The only reason I can’t give 5 circles is because my room (#4) was so tiny, they had to give me a separate room across the hall (#4A) in which to put my luggage & hang up my coats! But it’s clean & the bed was the most comfy of the trip. And it’s only a :07 drive to Lake Matheson N.P. so you can arrive there in the pre-sunrise moments for the “View of Views!”

I really enjoyed staying here. The staff were so helpful and kind, gave us a warm welcome and guided us to a warm and cozy room. There was a shared kitchen which was could be accessed at any time (Some food was set aside for breakfast, of course). On check in, the gentleman invited us to a night walk along a nearby forest pathway - this was a complimentary glowworm tour which was really fun. The guide was chilled, chatted away and took his time to allow us to enjoy the glowworms. Back to the accommodation - the bed was very comfortable and we had plenty of room the relax. Towel warmers are always a winner for me! I felt extremely comfortable in this hotel and I could have stayed for much longer but that will have to be next time I'm in NZ. Thank you to the staff :)

The lodge was very clean, comfortable and warm. Showers hot and beds comfortable. There was a continental breakfast included in the tariff which was provided self serve in the breakfast room. The hosts were absolutely amazingly helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Laundry facilities on site. For the nightly rate, the accommodation was very good value.

We stayed upstairs in a queen bed room in the main lodge. The room was large and well appointed. We were very comfortable and enjoyed all of the windows we could open to control the temperature. They offer a guided walk to see some glowworms in the forest nearby. It was a very fun walk, even though it was raining. It was a nice bonus. The facilities are somewhat minimal but we knew that going into it. We enjoyed making ourselves breakfast in the morning and talking to some of our fellow guests around the table. It was a different stay than the other hotels we used on our trip and we found it to be memorable and fun as a result.

Very basic park facilities in a small village on West Coast of South Island. Very wet and cool weather, stayed here only as fatigued from driving from Arrowtown in mostly misty, rainy conditions and did not want to push on in marginal driving conditions. Park offered a free Glow Worm walking Tour, but weather was really not fit for tramping, incredibly wet throughout park and inside toilet /showers.

We stayed in a mezzanine floor apartment which meant more room in the living area downstairs. The facilities are basic but adequate for a couple of nights. Whilst Fox Glacier offers very few facilities the motel is close to all of them. We had a couple of the issues which were dealt with quickly by the owner.

We stayed one night at Fox Glacier Lodge in one of the separate cabins. While the cabin was clean and roomy the cabins are next to the camper van park provided by the Lodge which does not provide a good optic. There was a boil water order in place at the time of our visit. While the order may have covered more than just the Lodge the Lodge did not provide any bottled water for things such as brushing teeth. Breakfast was some eggs and other items left in the fridge for you to cook your own. Staff seemed bored. The Lodge is adequate for a quick overnight stay on your way through the area but we would not stay again.

We spent one night at Fox Glacier and stayed at this accommodation, in a chalet with a bed in the lounge as well as a separate bedroom with two beds. Communication and reception were good and friendly with an effort to point out any attractions or tours in the area. It fully met our needs and beds were very comfortable. The Lockwood look provides great warmth, and the shower was great and plenty of hot water. I'd go back there anyday.
