Large rooms that were mostly clean, which is always appreciated!. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and quiet but very, very tied and dated looking, the room that we had really needed a spruce up and some TLC as at $180.00 for a standard room we thought a bit too pricey for the style of room to...

I stopped for one night on my way back down to Fox Glacier to visit my son. The manager/owner David was very helpful on what was going on in the area. The room was clean, milk in the fridge comfy bed, TV and two hours internet for free. I got quite a shock when the room started shaking early in... More

We arrive after having to turn back on Arthur's pass and having to drive the Lewis pass. David was a welcoming host and recommended a great local restaurant, Stumpers. The room was clean, neat and warm.

The 2 bed room was spacious and clean and tidy. There was however a smell in the room which although not awful was not pleasant. Staff were friendly and helpful. I was disappointed with only 2 hours free wireless, one of the reasons I picked this hotel was because of the wireless (ans was willing to pay a little extra... More

The Fitzherbert was dark inside and dated And for the price, it is not so great. The room at $180 NZ is quite pricey for what you get. We stayed at another motel on the same trip in Greymouth (just 3km off the main road) for $140NZ and it was cleaner, more spacious, better beds, nicer kitchen and much friendlier... More

With the terrible weather on the West Coast last week, I found myself without power and in need of a hotel for myself and my wee girl. Finally I found a room at Fitzherbert Court, advised them I was at Blue Spur and said I would come right down. It took me 5 mins to pack a bag, 15 mins... More

Comfortable and roomy, clean and well equiped. Staff were friendly. We booked at short notice and everything was ready when we arrived.

Room didn't feel comfortable and not very clean. No available power plugs to recharge iPad's, cameras etc. This was our most expensive motel ( at $165) but not the best value, Dirty rubbish bins outside room.

Booked the motel at short notice and was pleasantly surprised. Self contained apartment clean, plenty of space and reasonably quite despite being on main road. David host was extremely friendly and helpful. A nice location but really need a car for town if shopping (5mins) but easy walk to Glow Worms. Has a laundry and a small cost for powder... More
