A very pleasant stay in this motel. The room was more than adequate and very clean. A Very helpful lady at reception who gave us advice on places to visit in the area and how to get to them. We would recommend stopping here for a couple of nights to see everything in the area.

Nice Motel in great location for Fox Glacier. Clean, spacious and comfortable room with friendly staff. Just across the street from Fox Glacier Guiding, whose 3-hour Helo-hike to Fox Glacier is not to be missed...a bit pricey, but a real bucket list item. Attached Cafe is also the best in town from our experience.

We received a warm welcome when we arrived. The motel is well positioned in the town and was comfortable & spacious. It is ideal for visiting the glacier and neighbouring restaurants and pubs. There is also a BBQ available for communal use.

Large very comfortable room with an equally large bathroom and nice big bathtub! Very helpful, friendly manager/host. There's a nice feeling about the place and a very warm doggie welcome. Much better than your average motel.

Great stay worth my boyfriend as we traveled through the area. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Had a homey feel that some motels lack. We usually only stay in hotels, however this place was nicer then some other 4 star hotels we had stayed in. Recommended some great places to eat that were only a few...

Stayed one night on our way to Queenstown. Weather was awful so couldn't do any sightseeing. Motel amenities scarce so a pretty boring stay. Quite expensive for level of accommodation $214 per night but guess it's supply and demand. Hosts however were very friendly and unit was large and clean.

We loved this accommodation! For the price, it was brilliant to have such a large, warm room, fully equipped with kitchenette needs and heated flooring! The internet was great and we were only a short walk from the cafes. The only flaw we had with the room was the curtains were too sheer to block out the light, which left...

We stopped here on our long coastal drive, pulling in during an absolute deluge. It didn't look like much on the outside, appearing more like a somewhat common roadside inn. The staff were extremely polite, to start. But the real surprise was on entering the room. The room was very spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the overall quality...

Rooms were clean, comfortable and big. I was very impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked which would easily allow you to eat in if required. Beds very comfortable. Wifi a bit slow but did work. Staff extremely helpful and recommended activities and restaurants.

Booked through Booking.com based on price and availability. Could not have been happier with our stay? Though Fox glacier was rainy and our plans foiled, the hotel was spacious, clean and our hosts very informative and accommodating. We especially liked the king size beds (our only ones in 12 nights of stays), the nice selection of TV channels and the...
