I want to thank the staff for presenting a unit, cleaned to a very high standard. The furnishings were comfortable and more than adequate for our nightly stay. The management were very helpful and provided us with very good advice regarding what to see and do in town. Would most definitely recommend this motel to all our friends and family.

Lady at Reception was helpful. Location of great - easy to get to places around town. 100mb free internet a bonus. Room small but comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Would recommend as basic accommodation.

Stayed here for two nights, we had a compact room and it was quite a good surprise for the price we paid. Lady at reception was helpful, the notes for the drive to Queenstown were very good. 1 hour of free internet per day was a bonus. Only negatives were the pillows and the hot tub wasn't working when we stayed. Would recommend, basic but still cute.

When one arrives at this motel type establishment you don't expect Ritz-Carlton facilities. What

you do expect is some decent effort and courtesy by its managers to make the stay of its

guests as pleasant as possible under the circumstances. Nothing of the sort had been

demonstrated by the staff/owners? of this motel. Arriving with a group of about 30 people,quite

a few of them in their 60/70tees in pouring rain, there was no one to either help with the

luggage or at least offer an umbrella.To add insult to injury when a guest complained about the

meager WI-FI free time he was rebuffed by a rude angry proprietor.These people should go to

a guesthouse management course if they want to continue to run this motel.

If you plan to visit the Fox glacier strongly recommend that you look for an alternative, if

possible.

My partner and I stayed here for one night. The room is rather small but it has everything. Bathroom is clean and the bed is comfortable. Only 100mb free download for the two of us which isn't much. The girl at front desk is bubbly and helpful and booked activities for us. Overall a pleasant stay but in my honest opinion it's probably not the best value for money. But again there aren't a lot of choices in fox glacier.
