Our host, Donna, was looking after the place in lieu of Raelene who was on fishing trip. Donna made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed staying there. Breakfast was nice: fresh eggs from the hens in the farm... yoghurt and orange juice and tea and jam/marmalade on toast.
The house is very likeable with lots of character and quirky antiques and a real fireplace... The rooms are comfortable and the gardens are so well kept and charming...
I noted the level of privacy here was not the same as other b&b's which have separate parts of the house for the host and for the guests; here Donna's room was connected to the same hallway as our guest rooms. Nonetheless our stay was superb and uninterrupted, I highly recommend this place if you are looking to stay at Fox Glacier, it is sublime.
