This is a nice lodge close to fox glacier shops. The wooden lodge rooms have a real country feel. Rooms are comfortable and the continental breakfast ok too. Good stay!!

Fox Glacier Lodge
This timber wood accommodation caught my eyes when I started to look for an accommodation in Fox Glacier area.
Fox Glacier Lodge consists of self contained units and camper van park rental.The self contained unit we booked came with a spa bath with continental breakfast and free wifi at a very low price
It is located right in the heart of Fox Glacier township, we can basically walk to the restaurants and convenient store from the motel in 3 minutes! 
The unit was huge and clean with a comfortable king size bed. There were two sofas in the room, complete kitchenette, dinning table and chairs, TV and DVD player and an electronic gas fireplace!
The bathroom was clean with enough amenities, a walk in shower and a spa bath!
I personally like the feel on this little wooden cabin with the fireplace. The spa bath and free wifi Internet just made me love them more! The best thing was, we did not have to pay a tons to enjoy all these! We would definitely be back to this motel!

We only spent one night here but could not fault the welcome and friendly service of the staff. Our room was clean and comfortable, we liked the idea of a communal, self serve breakfast (the food was great too!).
We did the glow worm walk and were rewarded by hundreds of glow worms putting on a show, we were also told of the best place to see the fantastic sunset and were able to take amazing photographs. Highly recommended

I had two very nice nights here in winter. The kitchen was a little small but this was not a problem because it was the quiet season. Bathrooms very nice and clean, although a little chilly as they open straight out to the outside. Very helpful friendly staff. It has a charm about it that the larger motor parks do not.

Stayed here with my parents for one night and we all loved it.
Very cosy in lovely wooden lodge, with a generous breakfast provided with home baked bread -Lovely and warm - and really inviting.
Had a great nights sleep in comfy bed, and we were lucky to have the whole place to ourselves.
Helpful reception booked us onto Glacier Explorer Trip which was also fantastic.
Would recommend this lodge - and especially for larger groups travelling together, it would be ideal.
