Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

6 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


4 Bed Dorm - Female only (Shared bathroom)

Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

Location Information

Ivory Towers
Sullivan Road
Fox Glacier

The lodge is set right at the edge of rainforest surrounded by lawns and flower gardens. We are right in the centre of the township on a quiet road. The shops, cafes and restaurants are two minutes walk away. The information centre, bus stop, Fox Glacier Guiding, NZ Skydive and helicopter flight offices are also just down the road. The world famous lake Matheson is five km away, so is the Fox glacier terminal face.
