Good choice in Fox Glacier
This was a super clean and well designed unit. Staff was very friendly and made great suggestions. Located a 5 minute walk to the small main street of Fox Glacier for resteraunts, small store and evening glow worm walk. Great choice in the area.

Last Minute Stay in Fox Glacier
Everything was outstanding service, location and cleanliness. The lady checking us in was lovely. She told us to drive down the road 10 minutes to get a clear view of Fox Glacier, Mount Tasman, Mount Cook. The view was stunning and a highlight of our trip. What a blessing she gave us. The room had everything required for an extended stay. The location is 2 minutes from main road with plenty of restaurants.

Very comfortable and luxurious hotel by glacier
The best place to stay near Fox Glacier. The room is very clean, well styled and well appointed. You park your car right in front of your room. The host checked us in immediately and warned the room prior to our arrival. VERY comfortable bed with huge soft blankets. My favorite hotel stay in our two weeks in the South Island.

A NZ Gem near Lake Matheson
This motel was very good in every respect. It is much more attractive than it looked like in the online photo. The owners were very helpful and friendly and helped plan local activities, like going out to Lake Matheson at 5:30 am to watch the sun come up. There is no air conditioning in this motel, but this is the norm for New Zealand. Despite that, slept very well.
