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.

This motel was a perfect location for traveling to both Franz Josef and Fox Glacier. Our hosts were very nice, and the views from the motel to Mt Cook were beautiful. We enjoyed the tucked-away location.

Recently spent 2 nights at this motel. Staff fantastic. Happy, friendly and very helpful. Room very well appointed and extremely spacious. 20 minute flat walk through pretty farm countryside to get to Fox township. Discount given if you book glacier flights at motel. Recommended.

The room rate here when I booked was so low that I was rather nervous about it. But I needn't have been, and I told the owner that she didn't charge enough. It's just a small place, but our room was large with huge windows that looked across the fields to the hills (the view of Mount Cook was only... More

Stayed here for two nights and loved the spacious room. The view was fantastic despite the weather (unfortunately raining as we arrived) Breakfast is supplied if needed, great as far as we were concerned. Booked a walk up to Fox Glacier, cancelled in the morning but we were able to go in the afternoon. Woke up to lovely blue skies... More

Nice rooms and lovely location. Beds and linens great and well off road to be very quiet. Only a short way to Lake Mathieson which has nice walks, cafe and gift shop. Great views of mount Cook from the room, we liked this place!
