We chose this motel as it was the closest to Lake Matheson where I wanted to go for sunrise and sunset. It was also good value. The room was basic, but clean and quiet and had everything we needed and also had great views of mt cook outside the door

Room 10 is a well-appointed suite with a terrace. The motel is a a long walk out of Fox Village, it is mid way between the village and Lake Matheson. The room was clean and well decorated and the owners were helpful. You rally an see Mount Cooke (and Mount Tasman) from the motel!

Booked into this Assur motel late in the day and got a family room for $130, was spacious and self contained. Bed was a little uncomfortable and pillows too soft but was close to town centre. Staff were very helpful and they had two small friendly dogs which got lots of scratches for me. The views from our door were... More

We booked a Bungalow Unit based on availability and reviews from TA and luckily were able to watch as the mountains revealed themselves on both of our mornings. The unit was clean, comfortable and quiet . Our stay here was during the third week of our 6 week tour of NZ. I cook most of our meals so took heed... More

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
