        The location was brilliant. The accommodation was modern, very clean, well organised & the staff were very accomodating & helpful. It was the first trip for my teenage son & I together abroad & I had requested if there was something that could be done to make it special for him & they gave us the best room in the place & he ended up with a queen bed & a single!! They had a great selection of DVDs he enjoyed at no cost & a large LCD TV. It was completely self-contained. I only wished that we could have stayed there more then the one night. I would return there at any time & plan to next year when I will trek the Fox Glazier!

        Nil! It was great!

        Very central to all amenities of the town, good selection of bars and places to eat. Close to Franz Josef Glacier. Rooms were comfortable and spacious with everything you needed for your stay.

        Central location but tucked away in a quiet location. The staff were extra friendly and helpful and generous with free supplies of some of little extras that are usually charged at other places. This gives an impression of welcome and that your custom is appreciated.

        Nothing. It was all up to standard and mostly better than expected.

        We complained about the dirt in cupboard, missing lightpulps and misserable TV picture and the only thing the front desk guy was able to answer was that "we try our best" . Not close to 4 star.

        Great overnight stay at Alpine Glacier. Staff had lots of local advice on where to eat, visit etc. Room was large, clean, modern and at a reasonable price.

        Great accommodation. Nice clean tidy and modern rooms. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. We also arrived earlier than check-in time and staff were very accommodating in letting us have room early......great location and place to stay.
