A wonderful accommodation experience at Fox Glacier

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Mar 2019
We enjoyed our stay here pretty much. Although owner Karen may seem to be a serious and solemn person at first, it's the thoughtfulness and hospitality she demonstrated during check-in did we genuinely feel. She was willing to spend half an hour just to briefly go through the premises, the township, the recommended timeframe to visit Lake Matheson, and all the other helpful tips. Mountainview B&B is just 3 minutes drive from downtown, and only 5 minutes drive to the famous Lake Matheson. You can even get the best lookout spot for Mt Cook with another 5 minutes drive.

The room is quite cosy and tidy, however the only thing we did slightly complain about is the linen seem to be little bit humid when we opened the bed sheet. There is a booklet inside the room, prepared by Karen, to help you better understand the surrounding area as well as the location and opening hours of the shops, restaurants, and activities. The breakfast is hot and tasty, with continental one available if you are in a hurry. It's really lovely to stay here for a few nights, greeted by numerous cows in the morning, and above all, to witness the exact beauty of Mt Cook.

We didn’t book any accommodation and found Karen by chance. At 8pm she was able to give us a fabulous cottage with a very comfortable bed, heated floors and heated towel rack! The view of the mountain and sunset/ sunrise were incredible here. Karen is a HUGE wealth of knowledge and is well connected in the area. She told us to go to the lake to grab a mirror reflection as well as eat dinner there which was absolutely the best food in Fox. To top it all off, Karen homecooked our breakfast to order and it was absolutely delicious!

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.
