We stayed two nights. Walking distance to everything in the village of Fox Glacier. We drove to the carpark to hike the glacier. Free laundry and wifi. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were large, spacious and had patios to sit out side and relax. What more can you ask for.

well i was booked into the Heartland Fox Clacier Hotel but due to over booking I got bumped to the westhaven motel. As I have stayed at the fox clacier hotel before I can safley say I got the better deal. The rooms at the West Haven are much bigger, has limited cooking facilities and nmore up to date furniture,...

Very comfortable king room with spa tub and comfortable bed. TV with dvds including NZ movies available at reception. Friendly staff. Onsite laundry was useful. Wifi worked well. Great location right in Fox Glaciar within walking distance to restaurants. View from hotel was clouded most of the stay but we were fortunate for clear skies at check out and were...

To be fair, it is pretty hard to give a true indication of this Motel because it was an absolutely miserable day when we were there i.e. heavy rain, very grey cloud & cold. The room itself was ok, it is located right in the middle of Fox Glacier so you can walk to everything.

This is a typical road side motel. No frills or fancies, however, it was roomy and very clean. The bed was a bit too firm for me. At night it was quiet. The young man who was at reception was very helpful and pleasant. I have no real complaints. You get what you pay for and for us this was...

In Rm 18. Big patio window. Spacious with settee and table. 2 bedside tables, clock radio, TV, desk and 2 chairs. Microwave, fridge, tea and coffee. Large en suite with shower over bath. Breakfast delivered evening before (not very exciting). Very friendly reception. Limited wifi with passwords. Usual milk offered. Nice little town. Would recommend .

We were on a tour of New Zealand and this was not a chain motel. The motel was excellent although the initial appearance was functional but the rooms were large and comfortable with all facilities you could need. The bed was fairly firm and the bathroom had a bath/shower. This is a small village with limited restaurant options but all...

This motel was situated walking distance from everything in the quaint little town of fox glacier. Check in was fast upon arrival and our room accommodations seemed fine when we first arrived until we had a closer look. The gentlemen who checked us in was very nice and helpful when we asked lots of questions. This motel provides all the...

Located as you enter Fox Glacier this hotel is a perfect location for tramping around the area. The rooms are spotless. Toiletries provided are top notch. Especially loved the lotion. Our stay included breakfast. A perfect way to begin the day. Upon check-in manager Matthew made us feel welcome and provided just the right amount of information. Loved Lake Matheson....

I stayed here for one night. Matt on reception was friendly and helpful. My large studio room was accessed through a patio door directly from the free car park. It had two double beds, a bathroom with shower over the bath (good temperature & water pressure), TV on the wall, a microwave, and a noisy fridge. The free internet (only...
