Was a very nice stay. Excellent place but most of all excellent hosts too. We were bombarded with very good info on the area and the hosts were genuinely interested in giving us a taste of the genuine life in such a small village. They prepared a fantastic dinner which beats all that we had in restaurants for the same... More

Karen was a terrific hostess and our room was perfect for us . It was not attached to the main house, but a very short distance away. Karen and her Aunt made our visit very special. They offered a three course dinner with wine the night that we were there and the food was delicious. Karen was very accommodating to... More

Lovely B&B in a fantastic location! The host Karen really made our experience. She was helpful and knowledgeable about the area and the whole of NZ. If you are passing through, this is a must stay! The breakfast was incredible, full English, fresh fruit, tea, coffee, anything you wanted, Karen was able to offer! The bedroom was clean and spacious... More

I wish our weather had been a bit better because the faint glimpse we saw of the Glacier and mountains outside were stunning. The host though and this B & B was top notch and couldn't have been better. Karen really made us feel at home and told us a bunch of great information. Of course the breakfast options were... More

Sometimes B&Bs are hit or miss, you never quite know what you're in for! But Karen was simply an amazing host, and one of the friendliest people we met in all of New Zealand. We arrived and were greeted by Karen, who helped us with our bags, gave us a tour of the property, and invited us back to the... More

More than one year later I still remember this great place and its lovely host: Karen. We spent just one night in this b&b but our room was clean and confortable and Karen made the difference by giving us lots of useful and interesting tips and suggesting us what to see nearby. Moreover breakfast was gorgeous!

We had a great stay at the Fox Glacier Mountainview Bed and Breakfast. Our host Karen was very good and knowledgeable of the area. She was also very considerate. Originally we were planning to spend 2 nights there and then would have a big drive the following day, but after reviewing our plan, Karen suggested we stay only 1 night... More

If you are holidaying in Fox, this is definitely the place to stay. I was travelling up the West Coast with a friend in early April and this was the best B&B we stayed in - and we stayed in some great ones! This is a very well-appointed B&B; it was very clean and nicely presented, with a good sized... More

The Mountainview B&B was one of 14 accommodations we had on our 21-day trip to New Zealand. And while all of them were nice, this one particularly stands out because of Karen, our host. She's an engaging woman who's led a very interesting life and it was fun to hear about it. That said, the room we had was extremely... More

We stayed with Karen for our visit to Fox and she couldn't have been more helpful. Great suggestions for restaurants for dinner, both dinners were excellent, and great proposals for activities and particularly timings. Thank you Karen as without your help and kindness our visit to Fox would not have been the same.
