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...

My friends and I arrived very late, almost to the closing time, and was received by a very friendly lady. Believing that we are tired, she informed that she had prepared the apartment and made the check in process as smooth and quick so that we can rest early. 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 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...

When we arrived we were greeted by our two hosts for the property. They were pleasant and efficient. I appreciated that they had turned on the heater in the room as it was a cooler night and the room was warm for us once we walked in. We were in room 2 and the room smelled a bit dank. I...

Old style motel and very comfortable. Beautiful view of Mount Cook from room 2 on a clear day. Half way up the road to Mathieson Lake which is a must to visit especially late in the day. Helpful staff
