Our stay here was short and sweet! The check in was seamless with very friendly service. The rooms are modern and well kitted out with everything you may need. Great value for money! Could walk into town probably about 1 - km away. We drove.

The views are stunning and the night skies are absolutely amazing! The rooms were very nice and comfortable. We were given great travel tips for the area as well as the next leg of our journey to Christchurch.

Wonderful hospitality. The owners Linsey and Bruce couln't do enough to make my stay enjoyable. In fantastic location with amazing views of the glacier. The accommodation was well equipped, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with wonderful views from the huge windows. The garden is well maintained and a joy to sit in. An absolutely first class place and I would... More

Loved this motel. At a very busy time of year, we stopped in Fox and dropped in here because of the potential views. Whilst the pricing was quite high .. it was well worth it and once I saw the unit there was no way I could say no. The fittings in the room were great and modern and gave... More

Stayed for a couple of nights. Loved the views from the pretty private rear outside area. Rooms comfy and spacious. The guy running the place really friendly. Very slightly out of the centre but it's only a short walk into the town. Would totally recommend this motel

Stayed for a night in the Sunset Motel on our road trip round South Island. The owner was very welcoming and helped book helicopter flights onto the glacier. The Sunset is about 10 minutes walk from the town centre, the rooms are simple and comfortable but well equipped if you want to self cater. It is an ideal base for... More

Even though it was raining & we knew we couldn't see the glacier, our hosts were so full of information & knowledge of everything 'Fox'. Room had great views & we went to local supermarket & bought stuff to cook. Relaxing & happy!

Studio, nice view of the landscaped garden, conveniently and comfortably furnished, with kitchenett Good Internet, Breakfast very spartan, given the previous day into the room, all wrapped in plastic, produces a lot of waste
