Reviewed 2 April 2014

It doesn't look much from the outside but the rooms are hotel quality. Well equipped including the kitchen.
We also were grateful to use their $1 washing machine
It is close to the centre of Fox Glacier so you can walk to the guide place and the restaurants

We only spent a night in this hotel, arriving early evening and leaving next morning, so really can't speak for long-term, but found the owners to be very helpful and friendly and accommodations good!

Room Tip: We had a room in the back corner but all looked pretty much equal as the hotel is on the road coming...

Stayed at the Westhaven for 2 nights during our journey across the South Island. Great location and very quiet. Also very close to Fox Glacier. Owners were very helpful and directed us to a local foot trail where we were able to see many,many glow worms during an amazing evening walk.

The room was spacious, clean and centrally located. The hosts were very so kind and took us out to get a view of the Glacier. We enjoyed our stay very much. They let us keep our luggage in their lobby till our bus left after check out. Wonderful experience.

Room Tip: The room had a small kitchenette

An old fashioned motel well equipped and very clean rooms.Only an overnight stay but right in the centre of town and so enabled us to arrange a glacier flight with helicopter landing,allarranged by the host.Comfortable beds and a nice grassy area to sit out behind the room. Great views great stay.

We were able to do our laundry as well as have the internet we require. The motel was clean and comfortable and the hosts friendly and helpful. Easy walk to restaurants and pubs. The weather was perfect in March!

The motel is quite nice and well located. But, unfortunately, the main street is in front of the hotel, so it could be al little bit noisy. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean with lots of space. We can recommend this motel.
