Nice, comfortable hotel close to everything

Pros: Room was payed out very well to make maximum use of the space. Front office staff very helpful and girls in the breakfast were very friendly.
Location: A visit to Lake Matheson is a must. There are walks for every level of fitness, also try the cafe there. The food is delicious.
A nice comfortable hotel, close to everything Fox Glacier has to offer. Very friendly staff. A very yummy breakfast is also provided.
