“Excellent Referral”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Our friends stayed here recently and said how good the motel was and how friendly the staff were.
On their recommendation we booked a night and end up staying for 2 nights. Everything they said was true. The staff couldn't be more helpful and arranged a flight for us over the Glacier and also made recommendations of other activities to do. Rooms were well appointed and had everything we needed. Wifi was also great and we had a very generous amount. Not many restaurants open at this time of the year but really enjoyed our Pizza at Cafe Neve.
Pleased we booked here and will be back again.

Room Tip: All rooms have excellent wifi reception and easy access

Stayed here on our recent trip in New Zealand and it was great. Rooms were clean and comfortable. On arrival we were given 1gb on free WiFi which was included in the room rate. Staff were help and friendly giving us information on activities in the area.
would certainly recommend tnis motel to others.

Room Tip: Book direct with motel for best rate.

The weather was pretty wild whilst we were at Fox but our room was warm and cosy. It was a small room but adequate for us. The outdoor spa was a great place to defrost. Nice bathroom as well. Great referral for dinner at The Last Kitchen.

The staff was very helpful and encourage us to go to her anytime with our questions. The room is large and clean. We had a king bed and it was very comfortable. The motel is located next to all the shops and restaurants. We walked to dinner etc. We appreciated the information the staff gave us regarding hikes. We took her recommendations and had a wonderful day in the area.

Pleasant staff and made welcome on arrival. All very clean throughout and everything required was provided. Large comfy bed, no duvet cover only a sheet, which I wasn't happy about and the room was a little on the small side. Walls not sound proof and could hear people in the next room talking and using the bathroom facilities. Not happy about brownish hand towels either but these were changed for white ones the next day.

Supermarket, restaurants and glacier all within easy reach.

Lovely Modern rooms with microwave, kitchenette, and lovely bathroom. Comfy beds and nice clean linen. Definitely recommend this motel. Easy walk to shops and drive to Glacier and Lake Matheson. Spotlessly clean.

Room Tip: Maybe a ground floor room would be easier for luggage.

We arrived just after a major storm had hit the area. There had been no power overnight and mo real prospect of it being restored during our stay.
The owners were very apologetic, not that they could do much about it nor it was their fault!
We were upgraded with our room - a bigger bed and, if there had been electricity, improved cooking facilities.
The owners did their best to provide hot water for a cuppa and advice about where to eat - places with generators.
The weather was wet and it was an early night without lighting but we were tired anyway.
It could have been far worse and we were grateful to the owners for trying so hard to make us comfortable.
Great job!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms require less energy to move baggage.
