Good location and it’s all. Room smells after Korean food. Kitchen equipment basic. Bed not comfy. WiFi very slow if worked .The check in wasn’t friendly. There’s big difference between value and equitment.

The motel is fairly basic standard motel and is looking a bit tired but we've no real complaints. Beds were fine, facilities fine, and location good - right next to cafes and bars (only 3 or 4 ) of Fox Glacier. Wifi was ok

This accommodation is located in the centre of Fox Glacier with a two minute walk to cafes and restaurants. We stayed here a few years ago and found the rooms are a little bit tired now compared to then. Our room though, was clean, other than the discoloured grout (mould?) on

This is an older, traditional motel located very conveniently on highway 6 at the intersection to Lake Matheson. Our first impression was formed by the friendly and informative greeting in reception. Second impression was our room. Both very good. After a long drive to get here

One of the best hotels in town!!! We were there for a night but wish we could stay some more. Rooms were huge, great location, very well equipped . Meant for longer stays! Would highly recommend the place.

One of few dozen short and curlies found in bed linen.
Used face washer left in shower.
As the crow flies it's probably only 20 km or so..and you can take a helicopter flight from the town up over the glaciers to view Aoraki. By road it's probably closer to 500km!! Your on the other side of the southern alps and there is no tunnel. Best is to find accommodation at Mt Cook village or Tekapo but do visit the West Coast later in your trip. Hope that helps
