Mount Cook View Motel
Ranked #9 of 11 Hotels in Fox Glacier
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Turned up late on an afternoon with a family of 7 they gave us 2 units at a reasonable price for 2 nights. The owners were very friendly and very helpful, the units were in very good order and well presented. A pleasant and enjoyable stay. If you are in Fox give it a try its 5 mins drive from the village.

We arrived here last minute as a family of 4 adults, 2 children and a baby. The owner was lovely and showed us 2 units to suit our needs. The larger unit had a separate bedroom for the children, which was lovely. The units were clean and spacious and the location, though a little way out f e centre of Fox was peaceful and relaxing.
The beds were comfortable and the smaller of the 2 units that we stayed in had a spa bath, which was lovely.
The owner was also very helpful with knowledge about the local area and helped us to book trips to the glacier and gave recommendations about the local places to eat.
Overall a lovely stay, I would not hesitate to go back.

If you compare the other hotel in the same price range they are better. We wanted 3 days stay and he quoted a lower price. But when we confirmed for 3 days he comes back and says he has availability only for two days so we booked two days here and 1 days in top 10 motel. But when we checked out we came to know that the special price is not applicable for two days then why he didn't mention that at the time of booking. Further we ran out of hot water he says he can't help it there is quota of hot water per room ! Any request didn't help. Plus he needs the kitchen to be cleaned when checked out its a motel not B and B ! He likes to make money and save costs, if you have some spare cash pls drop by to his motel and give it to him.

We stayed for 2 nights. The motel is nice & tidy. There is no luxury but all the basic needs are available. It is bit of the centre of Fox but so near to Lake Matheson where you can have a nice breakfast and a walk in the lake. Also I would like to thank the kind guy in the reception, he was helpful & kind.

Our group stayed at this very clean and quiet motel. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset and beautiful views of Mt. Cook. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again. It's close to the park where we hiked around Lake Matheson and we all got beautiful shots of sunrise and the reflections of Mt. Cook in the lake.

This motel purports to be superior. It is very average compared with our experiences elsewhere in South Island. The size and cleanliness were fine .The negatives were a lumpy uneven matttress with poor quality 'bobbly' poly cotton bedlinen. The pillows smelt.
The location is a 15 minute walk from the 'centre' but is nearer to Lake Mattheson where there us an excellent restaurant/cafe.

One of the largest rooms we stayed in with a very well equipped kitchenette and large bathroom all of which were spotless. The floor to ceiling windows/door face across the road and to the mountains (although not to Mt Cook itself) and there is also a verandah with small table & chairs where one can sit and enjoy the peaceful view. The motel is located a couple of minutes drive from town down a very quiet road, is about 5-10 minutes drive from beautiful Lake Mathison and perhaps a little longer to an excellent viewing point of the glacier (cloud cover permitting). Although there are a couple of eating places in Fox Village, the one and only supermarket is quite small and rather expensive so, if staying for more than one night and intending to prepare your own meals, it might be an idea to stock up on grocery items in one of the larger towns either north or south of Fox.
