Located in the centre of town, easy parking, friendly helpful staff. My room was great, big, very comfortable bed, lounge area and coffee table, also a small dining table. Nice and quiet, very clean and comfortable, I would stay again.

The motel was very clean and the added bonus was it having a lovely large bath,which on a cold day of walking into Fox Glacier was very welcome on our return to the motel room,it has everything you need for a short stay.

Hi. how far is your hotel from Mount cook / lake takepo. We are driving from Christchurch on 15th morning to Mt cook and looking for accomodation
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
