Best B&B in the glacier area!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Oct 2018
Karen, our host, greeted us on arrival with tea and biscuits and loads of helpful advice on area hikes and sights to see. Our room was clean, spacious, and cozy. We woke up to a clear view of the southern alps, just outside our door! Breakfast was filling and tasty. Highly recommend this B&B!

You will not find a more helpful owner then Karen. She knows how to get the best out of your stay in Fox Glacier based on the weather conditions. Our room had a great view and was very large and roomy. Great stay!

An amazing location. Karen was an excellent host, greeting us with tea and coffee and loads of advice. Her breakfast was also excellent and plentyful. If you want to find out all the hidden gems down the West Coast, Karen's your lady. We had everything we needed in our en suite room on the side of the house. Wi-Fi good and bed was really comfortable. Took all Karen's advice, even buying sandwiches at the salmon farm. All great advice. Thanks Karen.

Only stayed one night here but it was a good one. Karen made us most welcome with her stories about the area and her days driving busses. She gave us information regarding Matherson lake and when was best time to go to see the reflections on the lake. She advised us to wear long sleeves and trousers because of the sand flies. The room was a large room with views of the mountain but the day we arrived there was not much to see as it had been raining and it was covered in cloud. We had a fridge to put our wine in and there was fresh milk for coffee. Shower was lovely and hot. Next morning there was a lovely view of the mountain. Karen made a super breakfast of eggs toast and bacon with usual fruit and cereals. A great stay.

We stayed in fox glacier one night n couldn't have picked a better place. The views are incredible. We were in the lemon cottage and felt we had our own little hideaway in the mountains. A little ways out of town but very close to lake Mathewson, its walk around the reflection lake, and the cafe at the entrance to the scenic view. Karen is very straightforward and wants to make sure you make the best of time in her beautiful area of new Zealand.
