          The motel is located about a 5 minute walk from the central portion of Fox glacier. Spacious room with comfortable beds. Shower and bathroom clean. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal. Friendly, helpful staff.

          Stayed here while we were driving through the west coast. The staff member was very friendly and advised us on the places to see. The room was perfect, new and very clean. A few mins drive to the restaurants.

          I stayed at Sunset Motel during May 2012. There was only a small convection heater. ( No Fan) Is it still the same? Water pressure was very poor. Advertised outside courtyard did not exist. Reception was chilly, (the staff and the room itself.) Mattress was very soft, beyond its life I would say. Washing your own dishes! This would be looked at by Council Health Inspectors in many countries worldwide. Many reviews overstating the views and room itself lead me to be cautious of reviewers with low ratings
