The main attraction is of course the awe-inspiring Fox Glacier, just a few minutes’ drive from the hotel. Guests willing to go a little further will find the Franz Josef Glacier and the gorgeous Lake Matheson – a favourite place for an early morning or afternoon walk. Those with energy to burn might prefer to hike while those with a sense of adventure will revel in the opportunity to take to the skies on a helicopter tour of some of the West Coast’s most popular scenic attractions.
After a day's exploring what better way to unwind than with a glass of fine New Zealand wine and a roaring fire in the cosy guest lounge. Or why not play a game or borrow a book from the guest library – a truly relaxing way to spend an evening.
