We changed our booking at short notice and the owners were very accommodating and supportive
Pretty basic facilities but they were clean and well maintained
Location, location, location! Clean. Large tub.
200MB of free WIFI is not sufficient. We used this up in several hours.
Not far from Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson (in the middle of both places). Friendly and very helpful staff.
Shower runs very slow.
Friendly staff, nice tv, good shower and comfortable bed.
Warm welcome at reception. Clean comfortable room with heaters which we needed even though it was supposed to be summer. Good laundry facilities $2 per wash, $2 dry.
Torrential rain but the owner did warn us to visit the Glacier before it rained!
Hard working staff(owner)
Good location for getting to the glacier and Lake Matheson for walks and near the village facilities. Parking in front of the room. Nice we'll equipped little kitchenette and spacious bathroom.Good value for money.
The sofa which converted to a bed wasn't't very good as a sofa.
Short "free wifi". My brother had just died and this was the first place I had to pay for enough time to deal with estate. I choose lodging on basis of wifi. I am 79 years old!
Location was great and staff very helpful.
We thought it was an expensive night. You can motels in other centres for a lot cheaper for what it was. You could hear clear conversations of the people in the next door unit. Wi-fi did not go.
The managers were extremely friendly and helpful particularly when we ran into issues that complicated our itinerary. The location was great and very central. The bathroom was very clean, and the hot water in the shower was amazing particularly after a long day of hiking.
The room had a strong and strange smell. We had to sleep with the door open to allow the smell to diffuse out.
There are not that many places in New Zealand that can beat the view from the Lake Matheson motel! Surrounded by mountains it was beautiful both at sunset and in the morning (despite the drizzle and mist). Our room was very spacious and clean. The heater in the bathroom was a pleasant surprise after a day of hiking, often in the rain. The cafes and restaurants of the Fox Glacier village are within walking distance and our host was very helpful when providing recommendations for dinner and activities. Would recommend this place to anyone!
Clean room. Spacious and comfortable.
Lovely friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bed and we were given good advice where to get a good breakfast.
Clinical look , lack of warmth
Setting and location Parking is in front of your room Layout of room Very clean and comfortable
We can hear people walking in the next room.
On arrival we were greeted and told what were the best eating places and where to go to capture best view of Mt Cook.
Good value motel close to Lake Matheson and very friendly staff. Very comfortable sofa bed in addition to the standard (comfortable) beds.
Low flow shower head, TV mounted a bit too high.
The facilities are excellent, and a good starting place for Fox Glacier. I would stay here again.
We arrived late afternoon on Christmas Day, there is nowhere to have dinner. The owner was so nice to offer us dinner, so that we could still have a lovely Christmas day. The location is great, just a few minutes drive from lake matheson. The owner was so helpful and friendly. We do really enjoy the stay!
The hosts Mike and Heather are awesome people. They were very helpful in advising us for tours and were great hosts for the Christmas BBQ they had invited us for. Really had a great time at the motel. Cheers.
location and friendly staff
bed is a bit too hard
We stayed at a two bedroom apartment, which was spacey, modern and equipped by all we needed. The fridge was broken, but in a few minutes after our complaint it was replaced by another one - the staff was really friendly. As it was heavily raining we appreciated the covered in front parking. Very good base for Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson. Quiet place.
Actually we liked everything
