We decided to stay in Fox Glacier because we want to visit Lake Matheson first thing in the morning. Mount Cook View Motel gives us the best place to start. It's located on a quiet Cook flat road.
When we arrived, the owner was at a town meeting but he left us a note on office door that our room is ready and the key is inside. So that was easy checking in, the owner arrived a little after we got settled in.
The room is very specious, even the bathroom is huge. We stayed in a motel unit (NZ$150) the price is a little higher than other motels in this area. But we get free internet and full kitchen. We bought our supplies from Hokitika then made dinner in the room. The kitchen has stove, microwave, coffee press, hot pot, fridge, utensils basically everything you need.
There are queen bed and a single bed. The queen bed has an electric warm mat and there's a small heater that we put in the bathroom because it was cold in there. Shower is big with stainless steel cover.
Overall Mount Cook View is a decent motel with very big room. However the price is a little bit high in our opinion.
