Great accommodations, close to Lake Matheson and the glacier. They have all the basics you could need. I like that they provided milk in the fridge for tea. The guy at the front desk was very helpful with tips on what to see in the area.

Stayed two nights at Lake Matheson so that we would have an opportunity to see the glacier. Our room was a delightful studio apartment, modern in design, very tastefully decorated and furnished, including two arm chairs and a dining table for three whilst still leaving ample clear space. The bathroom comprised a wet room with modern fixtures and a good shower. The kitchenette had everything one needs to self cater with all the appliances and equipment in excellent condition. Details such as a cafetière with ground coffee provided and carefully folded towels bear testament to the care and attention the owners commit to making their guests feel special.

On arrival the exterior was unassuming but neat and tidy. The interior was a pleasant surprise, with updated decor, comfortable bed and occasional chairs.
The hosts were very friendly and welcoming with helpful tips on activities both in Fox Glacier and surrounding areas.
Centrally located it is just a short stroll to the main street and drive to Lake Matheson.
If you are looking for a neat, clean, well located room with great hosts, then I highly recommend Lake Matheson Motel.

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.
