We spent two nights here and were pretty happy with everything overall. Arriving when it was dark, we were greeted by friendly staff and check in was a breeze. We had no idea of what the view would be like from our studio room... until the next morning... and wow, what a view. Great to wake up to... or to... More

We had a great stay here. Always good to spend a few nights in one place in a clean, comfy apartment. The complex is well kept. The apartment was very clean, owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Our self contained apartment had; a queen bed in the lounge/living room, a four seat dining table, lounge, coffee table, and a... More

The motel is located about a 5 minute walk from the central portion of Fox glacier. Spacious room with comfortable beds. Shower and bathroom clean. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal. Friendly, helpful staff.

Stayed here while we were driving through the west coast. The staff member was very friendly and advised us on the places to see. The room was perfect, new and very clean. A few mins drive to the restaurants.

We stayed 2 nights at this motel, arriving around 7:30pm the first night. The owners were welcoming & helpful with settling into our rooms, booking glacier helicopters & recommendations on restaurants and stops in-between Fox Glacier & Christchurch. The rooms themselves are modest, but come with all amenities necessary for a short visit. The kitchenette had plates, silverware, a water... More

We stayed one night at this motel during a trip to New Zealand and were very impressed. The room was spacious, modern, well appointed and clean. The bed was excellent and we loved hearing the rain on the roof. The clouds cleared just enough for us to catch the wonderful view of the mountains. Highly recommended,

Great motel. Good rooms with all the facilities and a spectacular view of the glacier. The people who run the motel are very friendly and helpful. It is located a short, 10 minute walk from the town itself. A very pleasant stay, highly recommended.

When it says mountain views from each room, they aren't kidding - BEAUTIFUL! The room was lovely and clean. Staff were friendly from first meet and greet. The motel is about 1km walk from town and we were lucky enough to have good weather to do this. The hotel is quiet but beware the sandflies. Our rooms windows had been... More

We stayed two nights at the Sunset Hotel during March 2015. The rooms were very nice, clean and large fir such a small hotel. The owner is quite helpful with directions, restaurants and sightseeing tips. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
