          Clean and comfortable room though bed was very soft. Amazing view from the room which is a brisk 20 minute walk from the few restaurants in Fox Glacier. Breakfast available if required though we chose to drive up to a cafe nearby

          Great place, beautiful view, clean and comfortable. Service was really friendly. Only downfall was the shower, it took quite a while to heat and then as you turn it down even the slightest it would run cold. But, it means hot showers are a must!!

          I stayed at Sunset Motel during May 2012. There was only a small convection heater. ( No Fan) Is it still the same? Water pressure was very poor. Advertised outside courtyard did not exist. Reception was chilly, (the staff and the room itself.) Mattress was very soft, beyond its life I would say. Washing your own dishes! This would be looked at by Council Health Inspectors in many countries worldwide. Many reviews overstating the views and room itself lead me to be cautious of reviewers with low ratings
