We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment itself was tired and needed some updating but having said that it was still comfortable, clean and spacious with a well stocked kitchen. The apartments were well located close to the main street and the views from the apartments were stunning.

We arrived in November to a warm welcome from the owner after an eight hour drive. He also gave us a map of the area and the information we needed to find the glacier and Lake Matheson. Motel room was clean, tidy and provided all amenities we needed. Within walking distance to the township.

Fox glacier is a lovely place to stay and is less busy that Franz Josef. The views from Rainforest motel are wonderful and the staff are helpful. We stayed two nights and our room was a good size, well equipped and clean but sadly in need of maintenance/refurbishment as the apartment was rather tired looking.

We stayed at this small motel for two nights in December and we loved our stay here. The location is perfect as it's a two minutes' walk to all the shops - afterall it's a really really small town.

We booked a two bedroom and it could have been enough for 6 pax! I should have booked a 1 bedroom as it's really spacious. The whole property is very well maintained, with perfect garden and greens everywhere. Facilities are basic but sufficient and everything were kept very clean. Owners/staff are friendly and is always willing to help.

The only thing that's not really functioning is the wifi. It's non-existent if it showed that we are successfully connected. Not too much trouble for us as we have a local data package and we connected all our devices with the personal hotspot.

The rooms were clean and while they were not luxurious, they were comfortable and had all the basic necessities. They were also spacious and had full kitchens which was convenient. The motel is just a few minutes walk to all the restaurants and guided tours. It was a good base for us to visit the glacier. The host was very friendly, and suggested we advance our glacier tour booking due to the weather, which was a great call. The only problem we had was that the WiFi signal was very weak in rooms 4 and 10.
