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.

A very good value for money Motel. Great location easy 5 minute walk to the main street of Fox. Very quiet location, although the local volunteer Fire Station is next door and the emergency call out siren is very loud and can go off at any time.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite that perfectly suited our needs. Very clean and well maintianed. Very nice gardens and lawns to relax in and soak up the amazing views.
The owner can seem a little short initially but is full of helpful information on what to do and where to go in Fox.
FREE internet!!! Every other accomodation provider needs to follow this lead.

This is a no-frills sort of place, but it had everything that we needed and plenty of room and it was clean and close to the helihike that we'd planned. It worked out perfectly! We'd stay there again. Definitely suggest eating at the bistro on Lake Matheson and taking the walk around the lake.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rainforest Motel.

It has more of a "motor lodge" feel, than the garden look in the promotional pictures. But the backdrop of mountains is still beautiful.

Our two bedroom apartment was spacious with great soundproofing - the best night's sleep I have had with our one year old for a long, long time! A comfy portacot was provided as well as some much needed toys. The rooms were also neat as a pin.

The windows were all open when we arrived - which made it freezing inside (but with nice fresh air). However, with the heater running and the electric blankets we could warm it up quite quickly.

For such a family friendly place, it would be great to have a bath rather than just a shower. But we got by just fine.

And definitely go to the Lake Matheson Cafe while you are in town - an absolute must do for lunch or breakfast. One of the few places we got to have a meal in peace, while the toddler played with the big box of toys and ran around in the open air.

Stayed here 2 nights in July 2011. Had a 2 bedroom suite, which we needed with 2 teenage girls. Very clean and spacious. Wonderful views of the mountains. I would recommend this motel as a great place to stay while at the glaciers. Free internet also a bonus, and not offeredin many hotels in NZ>
