The room is clean and quite big. Well equip with a kitchen cabinet. Quite a nice stay just that feel they should change the bed sheets and covers as they are yellow stains on it.Do note that the brochures on the table are meant for reading only and they will charge a fee if it's missing.

The new owners of the Westhaven Motel have done a nice job of upgrading and modernizing the room we stayed in. A personable couple with an adorable little girl who helped show us our room. It still feels as though they are just getting their hotelier feet set. The room was functional with a modern bed and comforter but a...

Perfect for what we needed for 2 nights. We booked in advance through a third party, however through late night booking (mistake on my part), only booked one bed, instead of two. This was easily rectified on the spot upon arrival. The rooms were clean, big beds, nice kitchenette and a clean bathroom. Could not find any faults, would happily...

This was a delightful, beautiful location, very clean, modern motel with all the facilities you could ask for. The hosts were friendly, helpful and accommodating. There was a BBQ available and guest laundry.

Very small basic rooms. Average size bathroom. Very small kitchenette. Otherwise clean comfortable bed. Stayed here for one night so...

The unit had plenty of room inside with a small kitchen with microwave. The bed looked like it might be getting a bit old as there was a dip each side but it was fine and provided a good night’s sleep. The accommodation came with breakfast as part of the deal in this area where prices tend to be more...

We drove down to Fox Glacier without a booking and spotted a rare "Vacancy" sign on the main road and decided to stay for the night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious with a fold down couch for an extra 2 people. Wifi was free. Coffee and tea included.

Could not get my head around the age of this motel. The style was very old fashioned, looking like it was an original cement sheet clad structure from 40 years ago but the facade was clean new colour bond corrugated iron cladding and new windows and doors. The inside was all new and modern (presumably fully renovated not that long...

This motel is right in the middle of town opposite the turn-off to Lake Mathieson; our welcome was friendly and included plenty of help with where to find things and what to do. The room was bright, spacious, well furnished and comfortable; we could have stayed much longer than our schedule allowed.

We stayed at The Westhaven for just one night. Good motel. Clean and good furnishings and overall comfortable. Large bathroom and nice kitchen area. Overall, good value. Just one problem. We were in room 14. The 1G of free wifi, was a stretch to get to this, its furthest point. The reception was helpful with regards places to eat, tours...
