What a lovely little country motel!! The owners were friendly, helpful and lovely. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The location was great ... a short distance into Fox Glacier and out to Lake Matheson.

We stayed here for one night while travelling around New Zealand's South Island. The hotel is about 2 kms from the centre of town which would make it tricky if you didn't have a car. When we checked in the guy was friendly. However we were disappointed by the room. While it was nice a warm (with an electric blanket...

Stayed for one night at this motel. It is situated half way between Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson. Good views up towards the Fox Glacier are evident from the motel grounds. The motel complex is rather dated and overdue for a makeover. The units are spacious. We had an oil storage heater which provided good warmth in our room. Electric...

When we wanted to see glow worms, she even recommended a...

We stopped over while travelling up the coast. The room had everything we needed but was basic. The heaters had been left on for us but one was not working. Fortunately the room the kids were in was warm enough but the main room was cold. Also the heater was insufficient to warm the room up again in the morning....

I have never in my life written a trip advisor review but I really felt an urgent need to warn people of the horrors of this place. The experience at this motel was upsetting and terrifying. The owners are nasty bullies which I advise you all avoid at all costs. They are unaccommodating, unhelpful and down right nasty. The room...

There can be no better place to stay than this motel. It's so lovely, located at such a lovely and scenic surroundings and so very reasonable too. The Mount Cook can be viewed well from here and to have a better view, just drive on cook flat road for another kilometer or so. From here one can see Fox glacier...

The place was great with a friendly reception. It is the closest accommodation you will find to Lake Matheson which was really great for us as this is where we would like to visit in the morning (we stayed over for one night). We stayed in the two room unit and it was very comfortable. Huge rooms and excellent view...
