Basically we stayed in Fox Glacier for one reason; the helicopter trip to the Glacier. Mount Cook Motel proved to be a comfortable and entirely fine place to stay. It's a motel so as long as it's clean, quiet and comfortable then it meets my requirements and Mount Cook View certainly did. We received a warm welcome and a good... More

We were travelling as a couple with a friend from overseas. We booked a two bedroom unit. It was large and spacious and ideal for two couples or a family. Every thing was spotless. As the name says there is a great view of Aoraki/Mt Cook from the unit, assuming it is not covered in cloud. We were lucky. It... More

For $250 a night you get mouldy features, rotted window frames, holes in walls, worn bathroom, we were told to 'wait' for the hot water, no oven like advertised, queen size bed instead of King in the 2 bedroom family room, stained carpet, extremely dated. Needs money spent on it to even make it comparable to other motels, extremely disappointed.

Great view but only when it's clear sky. Farm setting apartments. Nice and spacious room and bathroom. Honor is nice. Poor internet service. Lake Mathewson is short walk. Parking is just opposite to room. From the window can see the farm and mountains. Kitchen is nice too.

Nice motel and if you can the two units out back have the best views of Mount Cook. friendly owners and their parents are very helpful as well. Really nice family run place. Clean comfy and lots of space with New Zealand Style kitchenettes. Come for the views.

We enjoyed four nights in Room 4, which had a huge bathroom with a relaxing jacuzzi. The tastefully decorated bedroom and kitchen area were also spacious. The lights were brilliant; I am fed up with rooms where it is so dark that you can hardly read a book and here the lights were perfect. We had just come from a... More

Booked a large family suite which could have easily slept 7 or 8 people. It's definitely a standard motel accommodation, older facilities, not a newer business-class hotel, so if you go in with that expectation, you'll be perfectly content. We were only here one night so it was perfect fine. For my mom, who was traveling with us, she was... More

This was my favourite place to stay in the south island of nz. You won't get more friendly and helpful owners. They went out of their way to help us. This accommodation was like staying on a old gracious homestead. Peace and quiet, stunningly beautiful scenery. We had no roads, houses or anything to interupt the beautiful panoramic scenery of...

The motel had large well equipped rooms. Large bath. Plenty of cooking facilities. Short drive to lake Matherson. We were booked to go on the next helicopter flight after a fatal crash. Nice view of mount cook when it did clear. Not a lot to do in the area.
