fox glacier is a very very small place. Given that the location is really not relevant. It is on the road that leads to lake matheson and gillespies beach - hence the name. The rooms are very neat and clean. However they are quite small and a bit cramped. One toilet though. Otherwise they are very comfortable. We spent 2 nights and were quite comfortable. There was nothing really to complain about. The rooms are serviced daily. Very spick and span. Good value for money. There is a very nice rugby field just adjacent to the property - should be beautiful in summer. There is a nice view of the mountains from the property but not directly from the room we were in. The beds were nice and firm and good king size. There were adequate heating arrangements since it was winter. Kitchen was well stocked. Very neat and clean. There is a paid laundry facility. Good value for money. Would repeat again. If you book through them then you get a discount on the helicopter rides.
