Sunset Motel
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Fox Glacier
Reviewed 29 May 2014

My partner and myself travelled to Fox Glacier to photograph Lake Matheson so the location of this motel was great. We enjoyed the little town. The room was clean and neat. The shower did not have the best pressure but was still ok. The views from the back of the room were amazing. A highlight to this hotel. The only thing i could fault is that the room had a smell to it that was not very nice. We had a look at another room which reception was fine with us moving but the other room smelt as well. We stayed for 2 nights so we were use to it by the end. Overall a nice stay.

The weather was terrible but the room was great.
Well appointed, clean and modern. Located out of the township away from the main road which makes for a quieter stay.
Friendly help from the front desk as well!
Will be back hopefully for some better weather! Cheers.

Situated a km out of town, this lovely hotel had very clean, comfortable accomodation. The room had a FANTASTIC view of the mountains in a courtyard area out the back.
The service was standard...The rooms were clean...Great place to stay....

Stayed for two nights, good welcome on arrival, given info on where to eat, map and could help with booking activities if needed. Lovely clean room with nice garden and views of the mountains! Decided we would book helicopter flight and reception organised this for us for the following day. Decent walk to the centre for meals in the evenings and not far from lake Matheson. We were lucky to actually see the mirror lake, had we arrived 5minutes later the wind was blowing slightly and no mirror images. Would recommend this motel!

Large studio style rooms with a small terrace - plenty of space, small kitchen and lounge but the real highlight was the floor to ceiling glass windows looking out over peaceful gardens with snow topped mountains behind. About a 900m walk into the small town centre. Hotel staff were very helpful, and can also organise glacier flights and tours.

We stayed two nights. Very impressed with the attention to deal down to the small necessities in the room. Reception staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable of things to do and at what times to get the best advantage. We travelled with our son so had three in a room, very comfort and cosy? Fantastic views from our room! Well done guys.

Clean, modern and comfortable room with lovely views! One of the better motels we stayed in during our trip. Reception also provided helpful information on Fox Glacier and its surrounds. A great base to explore Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson.
