Heartland Hotel Fox Glacier
Nice Old Country Hotel
Better than expected. This hotel's a mix of old style hotel rooms in the front and a couple of additional wings with more modern hotel/motel style rooms. Also a seperate backpackers block. Great combination for almost all tastes and it has a nice cafe too. Also has internet access and a small buffet restaurant that's open when tour groups come thru (but don't bother with the soup from the buffet - it was a paste of flour and water when we went thru - no idea what happened to the asparagus).
Unique Quality: The old hotel is quite an attractive building and still retains most of it's original features. You don't get to stay in too many places like this nowadays. Seize the opportunity before they pull it down to make way for some monstrosity. Best yet, Alpine Guides, who do the Fox Glacier guided walks (well worth the money coz they take you where you won't get too by yourself) are right next door.
Directions: Right on the main road and impossible to miss.
