Score from 3 reviews Wonderful
Good location, friendly staff who offered great advice, clean and comfortable room. Were given free wifi and a kitchenette upgrade for free since it was not very full. Very much appreciated that.
The upgrades were appreciated since our stay was during a slow period. Otherwise, the room would have been a little pricey.
Self contained little apartment . All facilities were very good and staff extremely helpful.
Bathroom was cold
When we arrived it was all Ok and friendly.
We had to change our booking date as we had problems at our job which had to be fixed before we could leave. Attitude was negative to change.
Staff fantastic over the phone. We did not travel to Lake Matheson as a serious storm had wiped out the electricity.
Very comfortable and spacious
Although the kitchen facilities are limited, the motel can provide BBQ facilities for cooking.
I really love this pretty house and its patient host.
Spacious and convenient to local attraction and amenities.
Nothing that I can think of
Cleanliness and comfort.
Nothing not to like!
The motel owner couple were very helpful and friendly. The husband even gave us a free ride from the motel to Metheson Lake after we checked in. The owner also upgraded us to a double bed and a single bed unit instead of a double and a sofa bed unit. Nice and quiet environment, my friend and I enjoyed our stay at the motel very much.
Both the double n single beds were a bit too soft.
good staff and services.
location is too far from the town center.
Well placed for both Fox glacier & Lake Matheson.
Location good for Lake Matheson and Fox Glacier.
Location of our motel room provided poor/no wifi connection - we were told we could sit in reception to access wifi - not ideal. Lockable twin roll toilet paper holder almost empty - had to request further supplies, host seemed surprised by request
Easy to walk into town. Big spacious rooms.
Bed too soft
Country setting / cosy / comfy
Table & chairs for eating were nice. Laundry facilities were great with ironing board right there for use. Can walk to restaurants.
The staff are extremely friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. great location with view of the glacier.
Perhaps an updated computer could help the staff ?
Overall it was clean, comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to stay there, and we would certainly stay again if in that area. Thank you for making us welcome.
We did not realize that it was not on the main road at first, and, not being familiar with the area, had to look around for it. Actually it was a good location once we found it, on the way to Lake Matheson!
Friendly, convenient to activities in town
Staff's knowledge of the area was very helpful.
Person snoring in the room next door. :)
Staff, reasonable price.
Very thin wall.
Good location in Fox Glacier. Friendly owner/staff. Very Clean, comfortable and modern accommodation.
The wifi was very very poor. It gobbled up our free allocation very quickly. We resorted to using wifi at the Cook Saddle in the village which was the same price and gave us far better internet access. Did not service our room on our second day. I would however us it again.
