Excellent Motel!
It feels like a brand new room with everything you need, nice kitchen and including a rice cooker. Very good reception and helpful staff. We love to stay and have already recommended it to friends!

8/10 Very good

We received a friendly welcome. The unit was very clean and had a wonderfully powerful heater which was great. The undercover parking outside the unit door was brilliant. We personally found the beds too soft which meant we didn't sleep as well as we'd have liked, although I appreciate some people like softer beds. It is a very quiet rural area and the Lake Matheson / Fox Glacier walkways are literally down the road a few kilometers.

Super comfy, perfect. Superb recommendation for dinner nearby, and a dark brown (arguably black) cat waved us goodluck from our porch stairs for our heli-hike!!
