Rainforest Motel, Fox Glacier
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!

Great Fox Glacier Hotel
Conveniently located hotel at Fox Glacier. Nice room with large kitchen area. Heater wasn't the best. Free Wi-Fi worked fine most of the time. Short drive to Lake Matheson trail head.
