We stayed in the private stand-alone cottage and while a bit stark it did the job well enough. If this was in a city, it wouldnt be acceptable but out in a 2 horse town in the middle of a basically nowhere, I think the owner does an admirable job. It was clean and comfortable enough for the night. Location...

At NZ$185 a night I would expect better standard, imagine my surprise. The only acceptable thing is the clean bed sheet and hot shower. I didn't like the fact that we had to walk pass the host's window to get to our room...made me feel like we were back in high school and I was sneeking my girl friend into...

We stayed at Fox Glacier Mountain View for two nights. Karen is a first class hostess and loves to chat, ask her about when she drove an 18 wheeler. The weather didn't cooperate for the helicopter trip but Karen tried her best. There is a good choice for breakfast whether hot or cold. All in all a great place to...

We only stayed here for one night but it was a most terrific experience! Karen our host was a delightful and most down to earth lady who was knowledgable and knew exactly what goes on in and around the area. Due to the bad weather, we weren't able to climb the glacier, but Karen directed us to the right spots...

After a warm welcome, our great host Karen informed us about various options to see in the region and gave us good advise on what is worth seeing. And you should listen to her: even though getting up at 6am in the morning might be tough... :) The B&B is located close to both Lake Matheson and Fox Glacier- and...

We stayed in the Mountainview-B&B for three nights and enjoyed the accommodation and the company of Karen very much. The room was within the main house but still seperate due to a personal entrance. Karen is a perfect host with lots of tipps and ideas what to do and (very important) what not to do. Her cooked breakfast is tremendous...

Based in a beautiful location on the outskirts of Fox Glacier on the way to Lake Matheson. Karen, or K2, was an entertaining host, happy to pass on advice from her extensive knowledge and expertise which enabled us to enjoy our stay to the full. Very comfortable, independent accommodation, with good heating (needed when we were there) with farmland and...

Who else would take you into their house, have a chin wag with you over tea & cookies and then when you return from dinner will have a ton of suggestions on the remaining portions of your trip around New Zealand? Karen does!!! Fellow guests only add to the energy of Mountain View B&B. Go for it!!!
