I was booked in here for two nights as part of a tour. The service was a little formal, but efficient - e.g. my bag was whisked away to my room before I had even realised. Breakfast was the usual hot and cold fare, but better than some I've had, and the complimentary newspapers in the dining room was a...

We stayed here with a bus tour. We enjoyed the meals and the pub...very neat atmosphere and I believe they had "happy hour" too. The rooms - well....we had a real big (bigger than a fifty-cent piece) spider in the bathroom the first time we went in...Yikes! The rooms backed up onto the back yard homes (not bad, just unusual)...and...

This motel is definatly not recommended. I would imagine it to be very cold I'm the winter months. They have given it a lick of paint, but can't disguise the shoddiness of the building. Shower stall extremely basic

Whilst we didn't avail of the accommodation at the hotel we did have dinner in the dinning room. The menu, whilst not extensive, gave a very good choice and prices were reasonable. The food was great as was the service.

Step back in time, and perhaps not in a good way. Rooms look like backpacker accommodation from the 70's, with the exception of the new bathrooms. Walls paper thin, can hear entire conversations from the next room. Buildings and corridors could be from a 1950's kitschy summer camp/resort...Or a 1950's hospital. Musty smell in halls and room, but it was...

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a tour. The room was quite small, but clean. However the designated fire escape was through the bathroom window onto a very rickety and rotten fire escape with no railing. We were glad there was no fire! Also glad we only stayed for one night! Breakfast was the usual...

Room was shabby and in desperate need of updating. The bed cover had a cigarette burn (showing how old bedding must be!). The room smelt strongly of damp and was cold, although a small plug in radiator was provided. We were in room 130 - at the end of the chalet block by the exit door, which made it colder....

Located in the centre of Fox Glacier Township, this hotel is very close to restaurants and shops. The staff were lovely and helpful, the room clean and just the right size. I liked the old fashioned style of the windows and the large bathroom. The breakfast was good quality and service in the restaurant was excellent. We enjoyed our stay...
