What an amazing place to stay. Handy to all locations, great parking, excellent facilities but to add to an already amazing line up, the hosts go far beyond the call of duty for friendliness, helpfulness and cheerfulness. Spotlessly clean and comfortable I would rate this as highly recommended. Did I mention good value for money as well!

This is a charming little town and the Westhaven was a well-located and restful sanctuary after the hike. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. It was well equipped and quiet.

Great little motel a stones throw from Fox Glacier...nice big room and several restaurants within 2 minute walk. We'd definitely stay there again on a future trip. The views are also something special - mountains directly behind the motel.

Madam in the reception introduced Fox Glacier, Glowwarm Cave to us, and told us her son living in my country where close to my hometwon......, very friendly, very nice. Although my room close to Haast Hwy 6, it still quiet in the night. And I like its comfortable bed.

We stayed here when we went to the Glaciers. It was very comfortable and we liked the gas BBQ you could use. The room was large and contemporary. A very comfortable bed which is always appreciated when you are touring. A couple of places to eat very near by which is handy when you are tired.

We used the hospitality of this hotel during our roundtrip through NZ. We were welcomed very friendly in the reception. They helped us to choose the helicopter company for the next day and even booked our flight tickets.

It doesn't look much from the outside but the rooms are hotel quality. Well equipped including the kitchen. We also were grateful to use their $1 washing machine It is close to the centre of Fox Glacier so you can walk to the guide place and the restaurants

We only spent a night in this hotel, arriving early evening and leaving next morning, so really can't speak for long-term, but found the owners to be very helpful and friendly and accommodations good!
