Saving grace
Big kudos to the office and cleaners who found my wife's jewelry and shipped it out to us. Friendly, helpful crew made the stay a memorable experience.

Great little place in the mts
The hotel is updated clean and just what needed for the glacier area. It has a kitchenette area with dishes silver ware, pans etc. It has a microwave, hot plate etc. TV shows more channels than most..The wifi worked nicely and we had a parking spot right in front of our room.

1 night in fox glacier!
Room was very big so it was very comfortable to open up our luggages and bags. The room was well equipped with stoves, pans and utensils so it was very convenient to cook our meals. The town is small so basically anywhere is very convenient - 1 min drive to anywhere in the town centre, and down the road from Lake Matheson. Good stay!
