During our whirlwind tour of New Zealand (7 nights, 7 different motels) we needed a place to stay in Fox Glacier so that we could do a glacier walk in the morning. Many of the options looked pretty similar ahead of time so we went with the Rainforest Motel. The rates were the best we had in all of New Zealand so we couldn't really complain about that. We arrived just around 8 PM so I think we were a little on the late side for the hosts. He was pretty friendly and gave us a recommendation for dinner, but just wasn't as enthusiastic as some of the other hosts we had in our travels. The room was pretty nice with a small kitchen type area and a nice sitting area. Electric blanket was a nice amenity for a chilly September night. There were a few spiders and bugs in the room when we got there, but no big deal. I wouldn't necessarily tell anyone to stay away from this location, but I wouldn't highly recommend it either. It was just average.
