Absolute comfort and attention to detail. What a gorgeous place to stay. Lovely rooms with great ensuite. all facilities including laundry and wi-fi, but most of all, wonderful hospitality including a superb breakfast. Deborah couldn't do enough to make our stay a pleasure. And right in the centre of the Fox Glacier township near restaurants, so just a stroll to...

We spent two nights in the B & B part of the Fox Glacier Lodge and just loved every second of it. The rooms are furnished with many details and lots of charm which creates a very cosy atmosphere. Every room had a heating which was very convenient as the weather wasn't great. The breakfast, which was included in our...

One of the last stops on our holiday and it was perfect. We had our own "lodge" - extremely spacious and comfortable, with all the facilities you could wish for. Deborah was magnificent, especially when my wife had a fall and needed some TLC. Wonderful views and a lot quieter than Franz Josef Glacier.

Not a lot of accommodation around Fox Glacier so if you can get in here you'll have done well. Very comfortable, very quiet, excellent breakfast, unlimited tea and coffee facilities plus friendly and knowledgeable owners/management. We chose B&B and our room was lovely - spacious, light and airy plus, beacause there was no one in the adjacent (single) room, we...

There's not a lot of accommodation at Fox so instead of our usual B&B homestay we elected for this lodge. This was the 11 th stop on our 3 and a hal week trip from north to south on our 1st trip to NZ. The B&B s had generally been good so we were not sure how a cabin/lodge would...

We stayed at Fox Glacier Lodge for 2 nights during our New Zealand adventure. The room in the main building was comfortable with enough room to spread out. The pine decor was perfect for the location - it fit right in! Deborah was kind enough to lock up our passports as we didn't want to carry them or leave them...

What can I say... I was a little bit worried when we booked I caught Deborah at a very busy time & she was a little short with me. When we checked in I understood why - she is a one woman powerhouse running the entire place - check in, check out, cleaning, tour guide, chef extraordinaire... As there was...

Reasonably priced, mountain views from our upstairs windows, large bathroom with a loo view and a well provisioned breakfast room. Warm and cosy, we enjoyed our stay. Our host went 'above and beyond' to get a us a message from home at night which was bad news -even loaning us the Lodge phone for a short time as mobiles between...

We stayed in one of the stand alone lodges, which was beautiful. Spacious, clean, well furnished and with a huge bathroom with spa bath. Overall very happy with the accommodation, the service was a little bit 'cold' but I would stay again there if I'm ever in Fox again!
