This is an excellent place to stay if you want to visit the glaciers. The staff is very friendly and would literally walk the extra mile to help you, if you need anything.
The beds are comfortable and TV programs are good. Free wifi is also available (limited). Great facilities.
We stayed there for one night, and would certainly recommend it.
Only downpoint was the stove which was not very easy to adjust level of heat. But if you're eating out then it doesn't matter, there's good restaurants in the area.

Stayed in a King Quad Room (3) with 2 children. Room was spacious and very warm. Awesome views of the mountains.
We stayed here a couple of days after Haast Pass Rd closed due to massive landslides. We were helped with advice on our trip and option (there was only one option) to continue out trip to Queenstown which was an 11 hr drive up and through Arthur's Pass and down to Queenstown. We left early in the morning so we weren't at the motel very long.
One suggestion would be to have bigger free allowances on WiFi.

Excellent rooms with all the amenities provided. car can be parked right infront of your room. very courteous staff offers free milk and internet service. location is not the best as nearby hotels are available at same rates but offer better views of the mountains. located next to the petrol pump and convenience store. Size of the room is excellent and if fully equipped with everything you would need.

We arrived after 10pm and the owner put a notice on reception glass door to inform us to check-in directly to the room, where the room key is at the door. The next morning when we found out Franz Glacier no longer provide half day glacier tour, the owner helped us to make a half day tour booking at Fox Glacier. That save lots of our time, and also make sure we manage to arrive Fox Glacier on time to catch the half day tour. We really love your courteous service!

The room is like a studio with kitchen and sufficient utensil for us to cook late dinner. The bed is very comfy. Overall very clean and nice.
