Helpful receptionist that went out of her way to accomodate guests whether it be frying pans, DVDs, or lending torches and tips on finding glow worms. We had a great stay at a clean, spacious, and modern (twin doubles) room. Restaurant/pub and the Fox Glacier guide center were all within walking distance. Fox Glacier guide center offered affordable and enjoyable treks of the Glacier with knowledgeable guides, with various options to suit different budgets and fitness levels.

Room Tip: Twin double room was recently rennovated, very clean, modern and spacious room and bathroom. A few kitchen appliances were also available for use.

Very well located in Fox township this recently over-hauled motel has large rooms with twin doubles and fresh bathrooms. The price is right and they chuck in 150 MB free Wi-Fi as well. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the road.

Just at the end of the main street in Fox Glacier the motel is adequate, spacious and does the job. It is a mid range motel and the feel is the same. The staff are very helpful and friendly. the lady kept the laundry open for me on request until 9 pm ( there is a common pay laundry for guests). It is close to a lot of restaurants and the tour offices to the glaciers as well. The rooms have a small kitchenette and tea and coffee making facilities.They also provide breakfast but preferred to have it outside as there are a lot of cafe options close by.
Had a comfortable stay with no complaints.

Hotel receptionist was friendly and helpful, wi-fi included (no additional charge).The Westhaven is just round the corner from Fox Glacier store, guide centre, cafes and restaurants and this added to an all-round great experience in Fox Glacier.

We stayed 2 nights at the Westhaven with kids aged 4 and 6. The room was clean, and opened onto a grassed enclosed area so if you're travelling with young kids that's a plus. Kitchenette had a fridge, kettle, plunger and supplies of tea, hot coco and coffee sachets, but there's no hotplate (or I didn't see one). The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. There's a laundry room that you can use free of charge (free washer; you have to pay $2 for 20 minutes of dryer use) and you can purchase detergent at the reception for $1 per sachet. Fox Glacier is very small so restaurants are within walking distance. Free wifi and there is a fairly good selection of DVDs available for loan from the reception, including a few kids movies.
