Nice little room with all the basics. We were ont he bottom floor and it was perfect. The lady at reception gave us umbrellas to use int he rain. Room was neat and very clean. All basics were in the kitchen and bathroom. The Motel is right on the main road and lots of info was given to use about glow worms and look outs for the glacier. Happily stay in the motel again.

Great location within walking distance of cafes, shops and restaurants. Very friendly welcome. Nice clean functional rooms. Minor downside - fan heaters could be upgraded to quieter heat pumps.

This is a new facility, well appointed and reasonably priced. In the centre of this small community only a short drive to the commencement of the path to view the Fox Glacier. Helicopter tourist services are close by.

It was convenient to the centre of town, clean and the manager was friendly and helpful. An acknowledgement that a 4am fire alarm evacuation was disruptive to guests sleeping who are travelling.
