We stayed two nights at the Lake Matheson Motel. Debbie was very very helpful when we booked and welcomed us warmly when we arrived. The unit was clean and tidy, well equipped for our stay. We didn't want to leave our bags in the car when we went on the heli-hike, they kindly kept our bags until our return. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.
We stayed one night at the Lake Matheson Motel as part of a road trip down the coast. The unit was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. The kitchenette area was a little small as it was a bit cramped to do any cooking but it was sufficient. The beds were comfortable. There is a handy carport right outside the door which was great for the day we left when it poured down. This meant you didn't get too wet packing the car.
Great place to stay just off SH6 - about 5 minutes walk from there. And only a couple of minutes from Betsy Jane restaurant (which is a must). Debbie was really friendly & we stayed in one of the renovated front studios. Clean & comfortable. The SmartTV with access to Netflix & more was a bonus. This was exceptional value for money & was good to break up a West Coast tour with two nights here. Close drive to Lake Matheson & a great walk.
Thank you so much for your fantastic hospitality Debbie. Our family appreciated the late arrival check-in and warm hospitality you gave us. Would highly recommend for a comfortable, warm, quiet, clean stay.
Modern rooms with large bed, clean, well stocked small kitchenette, well heated. Wonderful welcome when we stopped without a booking. Shower pressure was amazing. Betsey Jane was recommended just down the road for dinner, which was delicious.
I arrived and was warmly greeted and shown to my room. Debbie and Rob the hosts have been busy and updated every room with 40 inch full smart tv's. Was great as raining so I could watch Netflix. Undercover parking was a real plus. The shower had great pressure and was super hot exactly what I needed after a long drive. Well worth staying here as value for money and not on the main highway. Close to a new restaurant which served a great burger.
Owners gave us a free upgrade just cos they could. We didn't really need the larger unit, but it was nice. Decor is stylee and comfy. Shower was awesome. Good spot to stay, plus it's near a really nice restaurant just a few paces along the street. Walking distance to all amenities in the village, and a short drive to Lake Matheson, and the Tasman Glacier viewing area at further down the road (take your binoculars).
I had booked a King bed spa studio, but once arrived, asked if a larger two bedroom was available - which it was, and the owner kindly moved us for not much more money :). She was very helpful, also guiding us to a new restaurant just a quick walk away. The unit was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Great to have space to spread out and regroup (we were on a 3 week trip), as well as have our parking spot right outside for quick access. Beds were super comfie,shower strong and hot, and while they were busy (almost all units occupied), it was very quiet. Would highly recommend.
Very nice comfortable motel with friendly service. Shower is hot, room warm, bed very comfortable, short walk to town. Lovely spot to stay with at least 4 restaurants to eat, lots of walks and recommend the helicopter glacier walk. Could easily spend 5 nights here, and recommend at least 2-3. Come visit now before the international tourists return which I am sure they will do in droves...
Excellent value. Was very clean and tidy and nicely furnished and feel it was one of the better value for money motels we stayed in on our trip and we loved the carport considering the West Coast rain! The cotton sheets and large towels were also a nice touch. We would highly recommend this motel! Just some advise, if you wish to self cater shop before arriving at Fox, there is only a small convince store that is very limited.
