Stayed here for one night in February 2012 (having stayed 3 times before) on route up the West Coast.
A good quality motel. Stayed in a studio unit - the price was not cheap (but not outrageous compared to others in Fox which have tried before), but you get what you pay for.
The unit was sizeable and well laid out. All units are positioned in order to offer splendid views of Mount Cook - but too much cloud on our visit this time. The owners are friendly, helpful and on-site.
The wet room style shower was excellent. The kitchenette was modest but perfectly adequate and containing all needed and in good order. The bed was sizeable and sufficiently comfy. A comfy settee and book table also. Plenty of storage space. Wifi available: signal good, but charge a little expensive if only staying one night (try and negotiate as part of the booking price, perhaps?).
A good stay, will return.
