I would like to say something about the view of Mount Cook but sadly the weather wasn't on our side! Our welcome was excellent and the lady who greeted us made sure that we had maps and new what activities were available. The kitchen facilities were basic but more than adequate, and there was a good supply of hot water.... More

Great location with superb views of the mountain range provided the weather is good. Accommodation very spacious & the kitchen was well equipped if you want to prepare your own meals. If so you may want to stock up with produce before arriving as it is very expensive & limited in the local shop. Although we had a spa bath... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Cottage Unit. The unit has 2 queen-size beds and 2 single bed. The back of the unit has a lovely view of Mt Cook. The apartment is clean. It comes with a kitchen and toilet facility. However a few of the cups were stained. We would recommend this place as it is quite near... More

This motel really has a gorgeous view of mount cook, but unfortunately by the time we arrived it was pretty much night-time and there isn't much to be seen. There isn't much food in the area, so either eat before you go back or prepare to cook. The kitchen area is fully equipped and is easy to use, while your... More

Our family of five had a great time here. We arrived late but the owners were very accommodating and our room was warm and cosy. They were also very helpful with tips about places to see / things to do nearby and our children loved their dogs and pony in the field behind the motel. It is spacious and very... More

My husband and I stayed at this motel on the 30th of May after a week in Queenstown. We chose this motel as not only would it break up our drive, we also had a loyalty voucher for an 'Asure' motel (my husband travels a lot and gets a lot of 'stay 9 nights get a hundred off the tenth... More

The host is helpful and nice. Allow us to late check-in and early check-out. The room is clean and nice. It was quite pity to just stay one night at here. Definitely will come back this motel again if travel to Fox Glacier or Franz Josef.

This motel was a perfect location for traveling to both Franz Josef and Fox Glacier. Our hosts were so helpful in helping us to make the most of our visit to Fox. We had a beautiful view of the glacier at lunch time and in the morning along came the long white cloud.

Our hosts were so helpful in helping us to make the most of our visit to Fox. The room itself was clean and very spacious. The most spectactular part for us though, was waking in the morning to a glorious view of the Fox Glacier.
