The room was fairly basic but comfortable enough. The bathroom was quite basic with a large fairly open shower area and a curtain. The sliding glass door was very fiddly to lock. Very convenient to Lake Matheson and the town.

Nice, friendly & helpful owner share some great info with me. This comfy motel with amenities was conveniently located in Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson. Always a great place to visit and stopover when you travel along Haast Pass.

Heather, who greeted us, is a delight. She gave us great advice on how to spend our time and the best viewpoints. The room was fairly basic, without any special charm, but well located and comfortable with good amenities.

About
Description
Lake Matheson Motel is ideally located 400 metres from the town centre of Fox Glacier. While we have been proudly named after beautiful Lake Matheson for our 22 years in business, we are definitely a town based More motel; while we are not on the edge of the Lake, we are only a ten drive away and the same for the Glacier. Our motto is 'simply nice'. This means we provide simple, clean and comfortable accommodation and focus on giving you good quality basics such as quality Sleepyhead beds, cotton linen, good showers, televisions and utensils. We have a 4 star grade with Qualmark. So come and enjoy our studio and 2 bedroom units, with mountain views, in a peaceful location. We have WIFI,undercover parking for all units, some spa units, King and Queen bed units, continental breakfasts, a portable BBQ and a Guest Laundry for your convenience. We hope to welcome you to Fox Glacier soon. Heather and Mike, Motel Managers. Less
