Places to stay in Fox Glacier
Step into our large open-plan living and dining area, and we reckon you’ll feel right at home. There’s ample space to spread out, or huddle up by the fire in our warm and welcoming communal areas. Relaxed and sociable, this is the perfect spot to chill at the end of a day exploring the wild West Coast. When you’re ready, retire to your comfortable private room, and sleep soundly in the knowledge that you’re tucked right into the edge of the native New Zealand bush. This listing is for one bed in a multishare room, suitable for up to four people in total. Room layout includes bunk beds. Bed linen and individual lockable cupboards with charging ports provided. This room does not include its own bathroom, communal bathroom facilities are available. Towels available to hire at reception.
We're tucked in the back of the Franz Josef township, just a ten minute walk from everything you might want to visit. Our location is nice and quiet at the end of a cul-de-sac - you can even get a view of the mountains as you approach the hostel if you're lucky! The main street includes a small supermarket, petrol station, eateries, shops, and base camp for some of the local activity providers. If you head to the other end of Cron Street, you'll also find the local hot pools and information centre complex. The town is relaxed and no-fuss, with a small population of locals and lots of eager travellers passing through to experience the beauty of the glaciers.
  • With an exception to one night, I had the whole dormitory to myself. I had a great night sleep in a room which was clean and tidy. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were also clean and well maintained. Great stop-over for those seeking budget accommodation.

  • I’ve had a great time at the YHA, it was very clean, tidy and made with love. There was even a sauna! I would even consider it the best hostel I’ve ever been to - and I stayed in many hostels so far!

  • After viewing Franz Joseph Glacier, we needed someplace nearby; Ginell and Zak's place was perfect! It's a five minute drive to the cafes and restaurants, and they left a book with great recommendations. The house was cozy, clean, and easy to find. There are horses and sheep in yards nearby, which we enjoyed. The bed was really comfortable and the shower was great; we'd recommend staying with Ginell and Zak!

    West Coast, NZ, New Zealand

    Fox Glacier Eco Stay is a cozy place with great mountain views. It's close to town centre (4 minutes walk to cafes and grocery store), It’s modern and warm. It has a fully equipped kitchen, own toilet and bathroom and a washing machine. Due to Covid-19, we are taking cleaning very seriously. We have deepened our cleaning routine as well as added the appropriate chemicals for disinfecting surfaces. From light switches to door knobs etc. We also have a 48 hours guest free between bookings.
    This place is for you if you have a special interest in self sustainability, permaculture, bees, chickens, gardens etc. Staying here is an invitation to come back to nature, to take it slow, to recharge your energy. Perhaps, to go back home and start your own garden, start a compost, start saving seeds, make your own bread, brew your own kombucha. Anything you feel inspired to. Staying with us is more than a "bed for the night", It's an experience in itself. Follow us on Instagram @foxglacier_ecostay
    The moment you step in to West Coast, everything turns into magic. The rainforest, the waterfalls, the snow caped mountains, the glaciers, the rocky beaches. It's magical, It's stunning and there is so much nature to explore. A lot of the residents like myself came here for a day or two, or a summer season and never left. It's hard not to fall in love with this place. There is plenty to see, so we highly recommend you stay at least two nights. The drive to Fox Glacier is very scenic and and you might feel like stopping every 30 minutes. So take that into account when planning your stay here. Don’t rush! Most people that rush here says they need to come back and do it again and spend more time.
  • This place was so comfortable. Marianna made bread for us and shared garden samples. She also booked our glacier helicopter. We also caught up on laundry in a most enjoyable relaxed mode.

    Esther2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great space for 2-3 people with everything one needs. Also has one's own outdoor area. So close to activities and sites of the area. Accommodation very clean. Would recommend

    New2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Marianna and Malcolm’s place was perfect for our trip to Fox glacier, just round the corner! Everything was sparklingly clean, breakfast was lovely and we felt right at home :)

    David2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in the Fox Glacier area. Marianna is a gracious host and provided a delicious breakfast for us.

    Kurt2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay in the tiny home. We had everything we needed for the two nights and felt right at home. Marianna was so thoughtful and picked fresh veggies from her garden and provided breakfast both days, including homemade bread. The location was great too. Only a few minutes drive to the restaurants and store. Lake Mathewson was also nearby and Franz Josef Glacier was a quick drive too. Would definitively stay here again.

    Katelyn2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay. Marihanna and her family are so welcoming and nice. Everything was very clean. The garden with fresh vegetables and herbs is great. Can absolutely recommend!

    Sara2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We booked this place just for night as we came back to do helicopter flight . The communication was prompt. We felt the place a bit small and the big table n chair makes it look much smaller . But we were ok as we had to spend only a night . Mariana offered us homemade bread , fruits eggs for breakfast. She also agreed to let us check out by 11. We would recommend her place to future guests . It’s walking distance to the market n cafes . So make the most .

    Devesh2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very good location, just few minutes from Fox Glacier Guides Center. The hosts are very hospitable and helpful. The cottage was new, very clean and more spacious than expected. Nice homemade breakfast.

Everything you need for a short stay, perfectly clean, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchenette. We appreciated the tea, coffee and milk. Would not hesitate to recommend.

  • Great cozy space for our stay. We had everything we needed except for a table and chairs to sit inside to eat dinner. It poured torrential rain so the table and chairs outside were not useable and we had to eat on our laps on the couch. Other than that we would highly recommend as it was comfortable and had everything we needed. We woke up to sun and stunning views which we wished we had the day before to enjoy.

    Alex2020-03-19T00:00:00Z

    Edlyn2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The best place to stay in Franz Josef. We unfortunately had just very few hours to enjoy their chalet but an advice, take an extra day out to enjoy the place they have. It’s beautiful and at the perfect spot. We would definitely be stying with them again!

    Samvit2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • These are gorgeous chalets. The attention to detail was amazing and everything felt so lovey and handcrafted. It was an easy stay for us as we could cook where needed. A little tricky with a toddler and the staircase but we knew that when booking

    Franz Josef Glacier, West Coast, New Zealand

    Welcome to Glacier Country! Nestled in the heart of the Tai Poutini Westland National Park and only a 7-minute drive from the Franz Josef township, our brand new little cabin in the paddocks offers stunning views of the Southern Alps and ample privacy in a rural setting. Relax after a fun day of hiking and sightseeing while enjoying our spectacular West Coast sunsets, listening to the native birds, stargazing on the deck or simply being lulled by the rain.
    Our studio cabin has been newly fitted and features a stylish interior with a lush queen bed, private en-suite toilet with spacious shower, kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, toaster and tea/coffee making facilities (no stove top), continental breakfast included, electric heat pump/air conditioning unit, 43” smart TV with Netflix and YouTube capabilities, and free unlimited WiFi. It is a compact space, but perfectly suited for 2 guests and with ample room for a carrycot or portacot (not provided).
    We are lucky to be just away from the hustle and bustle of the township but near enough to access all its amenities. From the cabin, you will have amazing mountain views and be able to catch a glimpse of Lake Mapourika, which is an excellent spot to go for a swim in the summer, take a kayak or boat tour, go fishing or take a picnic... all a 3-minute drive away.
  • We stayed one night at Eugenias place. It was a pleasure. She accommodated us very well. The cabin was very clean, and very well furnished. If we ever visit New Zealand again, we will definitely stay a little longer at Eugenias place.

    Tea2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place is really lovely. It's only 5 mins in car to Franz Josef which makes it convenient for any glacier activities. It's self contained and you could have a great couple of nights there. Hosts left a brilliant information pack and good breakfast. Food at snakebite in town was delicious. Make sure you sit out for a bit of stargazing too.

    Rachael2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Eugenia’s place was comfortable, updated, and clean. We had everything we needed and more! We arrived to a basket of fresh fruit and breakfast foods/milk/yogurt and were grateful for that. The horses alongside the property was a nice bonus!

  • A rustic cottage on the farm, very functional, clean and well equipped, quiet location perfect for visiting the Franz Josef glacier and hiking nearby!

    Arnaud2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great Airbnb stay!

    kammie2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place was as clean as it was cozy. Some ducks greeted us initially until co-host Jenny gave us a quick tutorial, milk & eggs, and a warm welcome. It’s a short jaunt to either Fox or Franz Joseph Glaciers and very quiet. Very enjoyable stay!

    Philip2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The view of the mountains is spectacular at Graham’s place! It’s also really peaceful, but fun with the animals. The linens were very comfy, but the best part was the fresh milk and eggs. Highly recommended if you have plans in Franz Josef.

    Tauna2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house is big for 2 adults and 1 kid. The location is good that takes only 5 mins drive to Franz Josef town centre. The kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and sitting room are all well-equipped. My daughter loves watching ducks, sheep and hens around the house. We enjoyed our stay here.

    Coni2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic farm stay that the kids loved. We fed the chickens, watched the cows being milked, and had ducks in the yard for company. Close to town but not busy. Hosts were great!

    We are the very first motel in Franz Joseph area from 1950s, the original owner picked this fantastic location to have the perfect angle looking at the glacier. With just 2 minutes drive to the town, this is a great escape from the crowd yet very convenient.
  • Clean slightly old fashioned but less expensive than the newere establishments

    Chris2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

    Franz Josef Glacier, West Coast, New Zealand

    Our place has the best of both worlds, located just 5 minutes drive from Franz Josef but in a completely rural setting. The views of the Southern Alps on a fine day are second to none. Enjoy the panoramic mountain views on the deck for breakfast, or take in an amazing sunset in the evening. This is a brand new house, with comfortable furniture and everything you should need for your stay. We leave guests to enjoy our house in peace but live nearby and are available by phone if you need us.
    Our house is situated on a working farm so we may have some stock (cattle/sheep) in the fields nearby, however all stock are fully fenced off from the house. The house is 5 minutes drive south of Franz Josef and approximately 25 minutes drive north of Fox Glacier township.
    Franz Josef is a beautiful scenic place with lots of walks and places to explore. We are happy to help you with recommendations and can book activities or helicopter flights for you if you would like us to.
  • Great location near Franz Joseph and Fox Glaciers. Quiet neighborhood, easy to find and is sparkling clean. The views of the mountains are beautiful.

    Lynne2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house with a super location if you want to see both glaciers. Had everything we needed.

    Tina2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved how secluded the house felt but still only being a short drive into town. The house was very clean and new. It was also a treat seeing the neighboring cows!

    Danielle2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful property, secluded from the buzz of the town. It is a short drive away, towards the airport. Everything is brand new and very clean, with stylish touches all over the property. There is an outside patio from which star gazing is phenomenal.

    Talida2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place is in a brilliant location. The photos do not lie. Very clean and the host was reasonably easy to contact. It was disconnected a perfect distance from Franz Josef. A place to really escape.

    James2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome house just outside of town center. Very comfy beds. Lots of space to hang out in the living room and a great back deck to take in the surrounding views. Note, there is a washing machine but no dryer. Drying racks are provided. Would definitely stay here again.

    Franz Josef Glacier, West Coast, New Zealand

    Welcome to our little piece of paradise. We are located 2km north of Whataroa and 34 km (30 minutes) from Franz Josef. We offer a self-contained unit in amongst peaceful surroundings on our 5-acre hobby farm with a stunning mountain backdrop. We offer a continental breakfast. On your arrival you will find home cooked biscuits to eat at your leisure with our compliments. In your unit you will find a brochure stand with comprehensive and informative brochures on Sth Westland .
    The unit is separated from the house by a stand of native Totara trees and ferns. There is a microwave in the unit, but you are more than willing to use the kitchen in the main house. If you do want to use the kitchen, please advise closer to the date. There is also a BBQ available on the decking of your unit and also a Chiminea if you want to light up and sit in front of the fire. You are more than welcome to see our farm animals but do ask that you don’t go into the paddocks by yourself. We are more than willing to take you into the paddocks to have a closer look or take photos. There is a small decking at the back of the unit where you can view (if the weather permits) our stunning sunsets or you can use the main house decking and join us for a drink. However we do respect the privacy of our guests while they are staying with us.
  • Wonderful place to stay outside of Franz Josef. Marg was a great host, even provided some tasty biscuits for us! Perfect place to stop on our way to the glaciers!

    Emily2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot in a beautiful and peaceful country setting away from the crowds but conveniently located close to the glaciers with plenty of excellent walks nearby. Marg and Andy are wonderful hosts, eager to make you feel at home, welcoming you with fresh baked cookies and continental breakfast ingredients! I hope to make it back to go fishing with Andy one day! :-)

    Gene2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

    Elizabeth2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed two nights and did enjoy it a lot. The animals especially the dog Spike were adorable plus Marg left some home made cookies in the room. The room is separate to the main building and has its own bathroom, wee terrace and a bbq. It was the perfect space to relax after a long day. I can rightly recommend staying here if you’re near Franz Josef.

    Michelle2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

  • Had a great two night stay here. Well equipped kitchen, solid WiFi, washer and dryer were an added bonus. A little bit expensive compared to some of the other Airbnbs we have stayed at, but compared to other places in Franz Josef, it was reasonably priced. Smooth check-in. As we read in previous review, the location was a bit off from Google maps.

    Jeff2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and well suited for checking out the local town and scenery – Franz Josef glacier. Great one over night stay for us, very clean, comfortable and essential provisions provided. Set in the rainforest, some superb views and if the night sky is clear great views of the southern hemisphere stars!! 3 great sized bedrooms, great kitchen and cooking facilities and eating area for large family, inc outside seating with BBQ! A great find for us. Note – don’t take the gravel road the sat nav takes you!! carry on the road to the road way (Donovan Drive!). Great location.

  • Barny’s Place was fabulous! A great value for the size with a beautiful view of the Lake and a 5 minute drive to amenities in Franz Josef! I loved having 3 bedrooms. It gave one of the four of us (2 couples) the option to sleep there if one of us was having a hard time sleeping. The beds were very comfy and everything was really clean! My husband and I loved the Hot Tub, which made perfect pics for Instagram! I would definitely recommend Barny’s place to someone who wants to be around the Nature of Franz Josef without being way off the grid or too far from town. I would definitely stay again!

    The Pod is a delightful little stopover for the traveller. It's warm and has a lovely outlook. It is not a big area and has only a double bed. The bathroom is a little walk on the grass to get to for those of you that frequent it at night and is used by some members of our family. John and I are always avaliable to help with recommendations for what there is to do etc. Wifi would not be in the Hut but you will be perfectly welcome to come and use in the house.
    The house is walking distance from town and if you were wanting a continental breakfast we could supply with and additional cost.
    Fox Glacier is very lucky to also Lake Matheson, which is a beautiful mirror image lake reflecting Mt Cook on a good day. We can offer many good tips on how best to see our Glacier.
  • Absolutely love how quaint and comfy this place is! You will not regret booking here.

The apartment was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed eating at the Alice May Tavern which is just 3 minutes walk though all restaurants and cafes are a short walk. All in all a great stop over place to stay in Franz Joseph. Jennie and Pete

  • I had a really nice stay. Very friendly and helpful reception. Informative and super lovingly written info folder in the room. The cottage has everything you need including a small but fine kitchenette. Good quality because you didn't hear the heavy rain over the roof at night. Was pleasantly surprised.

    Sandy2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, spacious, very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

    Louise2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect to see Franz Josef Glacier and the immediate area. Close to the village and bars and restaurants. The apartment was great for a couple of nights but not perfect if you wanted to self cater as minimum facilities available. It was clean and tidy and the bed very comfortable so would definitely return and recommend. Be aware that booking via Abnb this is a motel with chalet style separate accommodation not a private residence. No issue for us but probably slightly more expensive.

    Roger2019-11-27T00:00:00Z

  • The hospitality we received from Cindy was on another level. She was quick with her responses, great on giving local tips and always went above and beyond with anything we needed. The studio was very clean and had all the necessities we needed. Wasn’t too far from town as well. Definitely would recommend Cindy to host your stay while in Franz Josef!

    Emma2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • A convenient location for Franz Josef with great views behind the hut. The accomodation was very clean - basic, but it had all we needed. It was a bonus being able to wash and dry all our travelling clothes.

    Bill2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Franz Alpine retreat. Hut was well located just outside of town and had everything we needed. Place was clean and tidy and was well heated. Room was spacious and perfect for our one night stay. Cindy was super helpful with local directions and details about things to do when we checked in. Would stay there again!

    Rosie2019-10-08T00:00:00Z

  • Ciny's house is very close to the town of Joseph and can be reached in 5 minutes by car. The house was very new and clean, and Ciny was very careful to burn a pot of water in advance before we arrived. If you stay in Joseph, it is worth recommending!

    2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation for a short stop over in the area. Would stay again for 1-2 nights.

  • The Church at Fox was one of the highlights of our two-week trip to New Zealand! It's one of the most unique places we have ever stayed, and was also completely comfortable and sparkling clean. AJ did a beautiful job restoring the church. He also left us a delicious bottle of red wine which was very much appreciated after a long day on the road! We would absolutely stay there again.

  • Upon entering Stephanie’s place my entire family was delighted by the unit lighting, open living area, large kitchen, fabulous bathrooms and a deck with views of the glories of Franz Joseph. If/when I return to the area I will definitely look for this home and stay as many days as I can. This place is so good that Stephanie somehow created an environment where no biting bugs existed in the deck area. We were able to sit and partake in the views. Jokes aside, I could gush on about the car port, the excellent design touches, the excellent book of tips and trips but I’ll save the experience for future patrons. However I will share a bit more. entering the unit was like opening a Christmas present. Amazing job Stephanie

    Reflection Lodge is close to great views, National Parks, restaurants and great dining. I am a fourth-generation West Coaster and having lived in "The Glacier Region" for over 25 years, the local knowledge I possess will be of great benefit to you, the holidaymaker. We invite you to share the comfort of our home and gardens. We enjoy the company of others and look forward to sharing our wonderful piece of paradise.
    A large guest lounge for guests to relax and enjoy the pristine surroundings and magnificent mountain views.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Raelene’s B&B! It was an excellent base for exploring the Fox Glacier area, and Raelene had great local suggestions and provided a lovely breakfast.

    Danielle2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and comfortable. Bed comfy and shower pressure good. Raelene was very welcoming and prepares a lovely breakfast. Grounds very pretty and nicely tended. Drive into town and to lake Mather took only minutes. We would stay here again.

    Charlotte2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • What a little gem of a place . The host Raelene is so welcoming and very chatty. Views are amazing of the Glazier from the lounge. Breakfast lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Great area to relax in, very close to town for restaurants.

    Beverly2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Really spacious B&B (we had the en-suite room), spotless clean and with beautiful garden. Views of Mount Tasman and Fox Glacier and Raelene had her own reflection lake. Good full breakfast. Recommend.

    Small, self contained house on the edge of a Dairy Farm, this was farm workers accommodation in the past and is older but comfortable, clean and warm. The cottage is easy to find on SH6. The lawn around the cottage is fully fenced so safe for children and pets. Hari Hari is about half way between Hokitika and Franz Josef (50 minutes either way) and close to the Wanganui River. A self-serve breakfast is included, fresh farm milk and eggs, bread, West Coast butter, spreads, cereals, tea & coffee.
    Fenced section with car port. Washing machine and clothes line. Wifi and good range of DVD's, book exchange.
    We are about 50mins from Franz Josef and about 20mins from Okarito, famous for kiwi, white herons and whitebait. West of Hari Hari is an excellent coastal walk and there is also a walking trail up into the bush along the Wanganui River valley and towards the mountains. Hot water springs on the Wanganui River are usually accessible (depends on river level) about 10mins from the house. Hari Hari is a small town with a Dairy and a Pub (both open 7 days!), plus a nice coffee house. Fishing is good in the surrounding streams and rivers (trout) and Lake Ianthe is about 10 mins drive. A helicopter tour (Garden of Eden Tours), operates from Hari Hari and offers options from Mt Cook and the Glaciers to Coastal and hunting trips. GARDENOFEDENHELI.co.nz
  • Excellent place, nice and cozy, my favorite on the West Coast. Al is a great host.

    Eugene2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay!

    Douglas2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Al’s place is charming - nothing brand new - but all the basics, plus a lovely view - on a clear night the starlit sky is amazing. In addition to lots of cereals and other breakfast choices, he provided us with fresh bread, milk from his cows and eggs from his chickens - what a treat!!! Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Cameron2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay just before the Glaciers. We really enjoyed the milk and eggs that Al kindly left for us too. Would definitely recommend staying here as a stop over along the West Coast :)

    Natasha2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in the peace and in the middle of nature - breakfast very good with products from the farm

    Eleonore2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Al's farmhouse in Hari Hari is very relaxing. Some of the decor is a bit dated, however it is all in great condition and adds lots of character. It's a quaint, comfy kiwi farmhouse. The eggs, milk, bread and condiments were beautiful and fresh and made for a wonderful breakfast. The views from the yard are very peaceful, overlooking lush pastures and gorgeous sunsets.

    Laura2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Al's place was outstanding and had all the amenities that we would look for. He left us with fresh milk (we drank all of it ;) ) and organic eggs from his farm. He also provided with fresh bread and varities of museli's,jams and cereals for breakfast.The place was very calm and peaceful and makes you feel relaxed. I would definitely reccomend his place to anyone who is planning to visit the South Island.

    Dhanya2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night on our way down to Queenstown. Lovely location. The cottage was perfect for our needs. Al provided fresh eggs and milk which was greatly appreciated. Would defo recommend a stay here

    ABOUT THE PROPERTY Step into our large open-plan living and dining area, and we reckon you’ll feel right at home. There’s ample space to spread out, or huddle up by the fire in our warm and welcoming communal areas. Relaxed and sociable, this is the perfect spot to chill at the end of a day exploring the wild West Coast. When you’re ready, retire to your comfortable private room, and sleep soundly in the knowledge that you’re tucked right into the edge of the native New Zealand bush. ABOUT YOUR ROOM A multishare room with ten beds, suitable for up to ten people. Room layout includes bunk beds. Bed linen and individual lockable cupboards with charging ports provided. This room does not include its own bathroom, communal bathroom facilities are available. Towels available to hire at reception.
    We're tucked in the back of the Franz Josef township, just a ten minute walk from everything you might want to visit. Our location is nice and quiet at the end of a cul-de-sac - you can even get a view of the mountains as you approach the hostel if you're lucky! The main street includes a small supermarket, petrol station, eateries, shops, and base camp for some of the local activity providers. If you head to the other end of Cron Street, you'll also find the local hot pools and information centre complex. The town is relaxed and no-fuss, with a small population of locals and lots of eager travellers passing through to experience the beauty of the glaciers.
  • Everything was great, thanks to the door code we were able to check in late at night. The rooms, as well as the bathroom and kitchen, were spotless. The first hostel that I was completely satisfied with. Very nice staff, we would come again anytime! 👍

    Caroline2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was excellent. They had a big kitchen, toilets and showering rooms, lounge area with pool and a tv room. The area was quiet so you could get a nice sleep at night after a long day. However, the door gets really loud when you close it due to the lock so it can disrupt people during their sleep. Other than that, the stay at this YHA was great.

    Hafiz2020-01-23T00:00:00Z

Used the sauna too which is open 6-10 every night. Kitchen and public areas well equipped too. Would recommend for a fuss free stay.

    If you're looking for a unique and cozy hideaway to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Fox Glacier, you'll be absolutely wrapped in our newly built Shepherds Hut. Tastefully decorated in a vintage style theme you'll be able to enjoy a quiet drink in your own private garden and be entertained by our lovely farm animals. An idyllic spot for honeymooners and tired travelers alike. You will be provided with a continental breakfast and a lot of local knowledge to ensure a great stay in Fox.
  • We were so pleased that we booked our overnight stay at the Shepherd’s Hut. Perfectly set up for a couple, the hut had everything you could possibly need. The bed is extremely comfortable with a beautifully soft and warm doona ensuring a great night’s sleep. The breakfast Kirsty provided was delicious and very thoughtful, and we loved meeting the animals. If you’re travelling and missing your dogs, Rosie will certainly give you that doggie ‘fix’. We would definitely recommend staying here.

    Michael And Mel2020-03-21T00:00:00Z

    Peter2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepherds Hut was a unique, delightful, comfortable escape. In a small space it had everything we needed and sits in beautiful surrounds with a lovely garden. Host was very friendly and gave us some good tips. We highly recommend as a perfect spot to stay while seeing the glaciers.

We would definitely recommend!

    Carolyn2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
