A very spacious room and bathroom, very modern and well maintained, and extremely clean. Had all the amenities we could want, including a refrigerator, comfortable chairs in front of a large window, laundry facilities, and a good breakfast included with the room. A 5-min walk to everything we wanted to get to.

I read a lot of good reviews and yes it is functional and clean but it is a motel! We paid over 350 Nzd to stay at a motel which is a modern and larger version of Holuday Inn Express or Ibis? Maybe it is me but my god I would never pay that much to stay st an Ibis!

Sadly we only had one night at this hotel. It is quiet, well maintained, the rooms are a good size with all you need for a restful stay. There is a large residents room with books, games and comfy chairs. The wine time is complimentary - lovely after a long drive to unwind before dinner. Friendly, helpful multi lingual staff.

This was a charming hotel with many tasteful amenities. There was a complimentary happy hour for guests, a nice restaurant, well appointed rooms and a gracious staff. A definite respite. The downside is that it is in the middle of a very unremarkable village and there is no view. Still, I would have loved to stay longer.

Extremely good value hotel but not in a cheap way. Polite friendly knowledgeable staff. Breakfast is a nice touch. Rooms very clean and tidy. Well located within town. Highly recommended!! Laundromat is coin operated and so useful with young kids around. Has a lounge for after hours reading. Ample car parking.

Believe it was a pretty, cosy boutique hotel, but the furnishing is little dated. There is a crack in the bathroom's sink too. The view is nice, breakfast is good and place is quiet enough for a good night rest. Overall, the experience is below our expectation for the price charged.

We are here for one night. the room is very clean. There is a hot water maker for tea or coffee. A non- stocked refrigerator is hidden behind a door. The bathroom has separate bath and shower.

The staff are great, the rooms are very nice, the dinner was excellent. Breakfast was also very good as you can have your eggs cooked to order. Located right on the highway in Fox Glacier. Would recommend it.
