                    Nice accommodation with a hint of luxury.The service wis lovely and our booking comes with a buffet continental breakfast as well as a warm American breakfast. The room is a bit tight but very comfortable. There is aan elevator serving all floors but teh hallways are tight. All the rooms are named after the explores to the region or the pioneers. That is a wonderful touch. The Fox Glacier township is less busy than the Franz Josef township but it is far cozied. The Fox Glacier trails were all closed and closed indefinitely unfortunately.

                    Very good stay in Distinction hotel. Good breakfast and walking distance to any shop/activity (the town is small anyway). We went there in Spring so the hotel was not full which was very good! I guess you need to book VERY early in Summer. The manager was talking about people booking 1.5 year in advance, crazy! Definitely one of the best hotel in Fox Glacier!

                    In a league of its own for quality (and price)”

                    High quality finish, especially the bathrooms, nice communal lounge, $15 for unlimited wifi (first 50Mb free) was great, and the $2 laundry (+$2 dryer) with free detergent is a very nice touch for those looking to travel light.

                    - Incoming calls could not be routed to rooms in the small hours - Room door let cold air in underneath from the corridor, and leaving the heater on to compensate made the air super dry - View was decent from 2F room, but some neighboring houses could look directly into our room - Manager had a go at us for taking 4 slices of bread and 4 salami slices to make lunch sandwiches for the road with our left-over breakfast... would have been happy to pay. - Manager did go out of his way to get the intercity bus to pick us up in front of the hotel

                    Durchschnittliches Motel zum Luxuspreis!”

                    Ich hatte gedacht, bei dem hohen Preis ein gutes Hotel zu brkommen. Es ist aber nir ein überteuertes Motel - alles leicht dreckig, keinerlei besondere Austattung. Mit Boutique Hotel hat es meiner Ansicht nach auch gar nichts zu tun! Nur von aussen sieht es gut aus - schöne Mogelpackung.
