Just a place to stay
Stay was is a bare minimum type motel,o.k. for overnight stay.quite expensive ,considering we visited in off season. Their washer machine was broken,the owner was nice enough to offer at least one load on his own machine,free of charge.

You'll Be Happy with This Choice!
This is a very nice property which has been rehabilitated in most areas and is very conveniently located for a Fox Glacier visit. It's within walking distance of good restaurants as well as glacier tours and food stores.
C. Donald, us2 night romance trip
The Westhaven Motel, Fox Glacier
Potentially fabulous views, yet the entire 60's style motel was oriented so that each room had no view. No screens on the windows, but they were needed.
