Located some distance from the village this motel had large units with awesome views to the snow covered mountains. Mine was super clean and comfortable - great for families. Loads off-street parking Lovely staff.

Our 5th accommodation during our 2 month NZ road trip. We stayed here for 2 nights in mid-November. We absolutely loved the spacious garden at the back of the unit, facing the friendly cows opposite. After a windy drive from Hokitika, it was great to have a friendly face to talk to when we reached. We were provided a very...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Staff were friendly. We booked a family room for 2 nights. The room was spacious, and only 2 mins drive from the main city centre or lake. The shower pressure was very weak, when you wanted a hot shower. The beds were uncomfortable. Overall a nice place to stay short term

Stayed 2 nights here to access Fox Glacier and Frans Joseph Glacier and was more than happy with our large spacious room with big bathroom. Owners were very helpful and friendly and offered us use of their personal clothes line after we did a big load of washing. Great views of the mountains. A little far to walk to town...

We stayed for 2 nights in early December and from the moment we checked in we knew we would enjoy our stay. We had an early mishap with 2 exploding cans of sticky tonic water which went everywhere but Steph took cheerfully in her stride and cleaned up. The room was comfortable, quite spacious, everything worked and we had some...

We stayed here for one night while travelling around New Zealand's South Island. The hotel is about 2 kms from the centre of town which would make it tricky if you didn't have a car. When we checked in the guy was friendly. However we were disappointed by the room. While it was nice a warm (with an electric blanket...

Stayed for one night at this motel. It is situated half way between Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson. Good views up towards the Fox Glacier are evident from the motel grounds. The motel complex is rather dated and overdue for a makeover. The units are spacious. We had an oil storage heater which provided good warmth in our room. Electric...

My friends and I arrived very late, almost to the closing time, and was received by a very friendly lady. Believing that we are tired, she informed that she had prepared the apartment and made the check in process as smooth and quick so that we can rest early. When we wanted to see glow worms, she even recommended a...
