Immaculately clean & comfortable
We stayed in a mezzanine unit. It was immaculately clean, comfortable and has everything you need. Conveniently located to everything in the Fox - Franz Lake Matheson area.

We had a large corner room on the second floor of the interior of the lodge. Everything in Fox Glacier was in walking distance from the lodge, but it was not on the Main Street through town, so it was quiet. There is a holiday park (campground w hookups for camper vans that are everywhere in New Zealand) associated with the Lodge just behind the lodge building so there were people milling about quite a bit, but they didn’t detract from our experience. Indeed, there was a coin laundry in the campground area that would have been a big help had we not just done laundry at the prior hotel on our trip. In the bottom floor of the lodge they had a kitchen supplied with eggs, cereal, bread, juice, coffee, and fruit that was available to lodge guests for breakfast. You simply made your own, and cleaned up after yourself.

Generous breakfast food provided but had to cook it yourself in room. Should have disclosed that. Bowl and frying pan cracked -should be replaced- unsanitary. Town has boil water notice in effect since feb. 4. No potable water in room - had to buy own. We should have been notified of this in advance and given option to cancel.
