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.

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.

Standard Motel Good for 1 night
Good location near several restaurants, a gas station and the glacier. If all you need is a place to get one night's sleep and a shower before or after visiting the glacier, this place will do. If you're looking for luxury, not sure anyplace in this town has it.

Choose another hotel!
I don't normally give a bad rating to hotels, but we were very disappointed with this hotel. Upon check-in, we were told that the room we booked (two queen beds) were not available. So they put us in a room with one bed and put in a uncomfortable single foldable bed. The lady at the reception just said "the computer allocated this room for you and we don't have any other room for you." Although we paid for the extra money for the 3rd person, the room was not equipped for 3 people (towels, spoon, etc). On top of that, the hair dryer was broken, and the insect repellant was not available (the hotel information book said they provide insect repellant), and the front desk close at 8pm and won't open until 8am to help with the problems. The room was nothing nice about it and we wish we chose another hotel to stay.
