Fox Glacier Lodge is close to the Fox Glacier village itself; literally around the corner. The cabin was comfortable and warm. Close to the natural bushland and you can hear the birds, which we found great. The village is also quiet. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very happy to assist me with an enquiry. Happy to answer questions. The view of the mountains from the cabin was fantastic, even in wet weather. It was raining during our stay and this did not detract from the experience at all. Go and enjoy your stay. It's a beautiful part of the world. K and C from Brisbane Australia

Nothing was as advertised. The property turned out to be an RV park with a few cottages. The cottages were neither well maintained nor well cleaned. And the service was very average. The “kitchenette” was really just an old microwave and some filthy utensils and the WiFi was spotty at best. We stayed there for the last couple of our vacation and felt ripped off for having paid over NZD 250 for this. Moreover we felt so unsafe that we left our travel documents and cash locked in our car overnight. We seriously considered switching accommodation for our second night event though our reservation was prepaid.
