We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome. We had a choice of rooms and we chose the King studio. It was very comfortable. We cooked in the unit and there were just enough sufficient items to use for our cooking. A great location overlooking farmland. It would have been a nice walk to town, except it was raining. (we went for a short walk anyway along the footpath).
Comfortable rooms at a very reasonable price. We had the executive room with a nice new bathroom. The rooms are spacious. Heating is an in room heater that was adequate. It is a very short dive to restaurants.
We had a warm welcome to Motel and given a map to explore the town. Motel was very roomy and had everything we needed to make our stay great. Quiet location with beautiful view of Mt Cook. A short drive from town. Internet was easy to connect to.
The name did not disappoint with great views of Mt Cook! We were staying in the family units which were separated and seemed older to the main units. Inside a bit dated but provided what we needed. Hosts Had put heater on for our arrival so was nice it had started to warm up, although it took a little longer to get all rooms warmer. Good kitchenette and enough provided for us to cook and eat in. Only concern was no smoke alarm in the unit which we thought odd and mentioned when we checked out, apparently all the other units did but not the family ones?
I will start on a positive note by saying the unit was spotlessly clean and the beds were comfortable, apart from the view being stunning I have nothing else positive to say, the room photos totally misrepresent the actual room you get, while although very outdated the bedrooms were spacious. The living area however is cramped and u comfortable fo 4 adults. We were given a unit wia disabled bathroom which was quite large but I don't know how one would cope with a wheelchair in the living space. We decided to use the bbq to cook out food because the kitchwas so tiny it was impossible to cook. Before being able to use it we had to scrub the hotplate because it was filthy..the bbq area it's self was very underwhelming and also dirty. If it wasn't quite late when we arrived I would have asked for a refund and gone elsewhere, it definitely wasn't worth the $350+ per night paid…
Reception by the young host was not very welcoming. Not really interested, that was a pitty. The room was very spacious and clean. The facilities were also good. The older host, on the other hand, was very helpful with the wifi and the TV. He also told the weather forecast, which eateries there are in Fox Glacier and what activities you can do in the area. Later he also came with an extensive breakfast that I ordered when booking here. The motel is minutes from the center of Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson. With clear weather you have a beautiful view of the mountains. Had a nice stay here thanks to the hospitality of the older host.
Make sure you choose this motel if you go to Fox Glacier. They are trustworthy and give a refund when the roads are washed out and through no fault or choice of your own you can't get there! NO other motels in Fox were considerate enough to do this-all other travellers affected by the weather like us had had disgusting treatment from their Fox motels,saying tough,we don't do refunds.This makes a huge difference when you are travelling and it seems awful to be penalised for being organised. I can't wait till we are able to reschedule and go to Foz Glacier and will certainly be staying in this reliable motel.
One of the best Motels I’ve stayed in. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment. Rooms were clean and spacious. Toilet was spotless. About 5 minutes from the town center and good views of the mountains from the road. Additional plus point is that it’s a 3 Minute Drive to Lake Matheson. Perfect if you want to visit the lake early in the morning. The only negative maybe the receptionist could be a bit more enthusiastic while welcoming guests :).
We booked for a one bedroom apartment. We arrived and were welcomed coldly by a guy who looks like who just woke up or probably hates his job. Was not a good start and thinking this might affect the review that I am going to give them, as customer service is very important to me when I travel. However, ignoring that kind of behavior, as we entered the apartment, checked everything, I thought they deserved 4stars as it is clean, spacious and the bathroom is immaculate. Kitchen utensils are complete and the view of the mountains in front of the apartment is exceptional . It is also 5 minutes drive from Lake Matheson, very convenient for someone like me who wants to catch the early sunrise of the lake. Over all experience is great. Never really had the chance to meet the owner. Probably a little bit of training with the staff about good customer service and enthusiasm in serving the customers. Anyway, good job with the cleanliness of the room. Would have been given 5 stars but the customer service is a minus.…
Nice sized room with ample room. Amenities were good with little kitchen and large bathroom. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice views of the Glacier as well. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would happily stay again. Thanks
