Pros: Beautiful property with lovely, cosy and comfortable rooms. Spectacular views of Mt Tasman and Mt Cook from our rooms. Lovely breakfast provided by Alannah and great recommendations to see Fox Glacier given the recent track damage.
Cons: We were under the impression we would receive drinks and nibbles upon arrival although nothing was communicated with us about this and therefore it wasn't received. Close to where a lot of helicopters depart/arrive for tours so a bit noisy during the day.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: We loved our short stay at the Rainforest Motel with its stunning views. The apartment was clean and tidy, very spacious for our family of 4 and the kitchen was well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the heaters & electric blankets were a godsend given it was winter! Andy the owner was extremely helpful telling us about a local man that could take us to Lake Matheson and when our heli ride cancelled he very swiftly arranged for us to go with someone else. Would definitely stay again.

Lake Matheson Motel - Fox Glacier

8,9 Excellent (531 reviews)
R2 114+
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Lake Matheson Motel in Fox Glacier, you'll be 8 minutes by car from Fox Glacier. Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Spacious room. Clean bathroom. The facilities are really great.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: We were welcomed by the great hospitality of the owner. I like her smile and she introduced the motel and the town in detail. Also, the day before we arrived Fox, we worried about the road connection between Fox and FJ as the bridge is broken by heavy rain. We called and asked the owners and she explain the condition to us clearly to ease our worries. The room is as same as the picture shown in the booking website. The room is sparkling clean and bright, more than I expected. The water supply is strong and stable, which is very important in May. I particularly like the sliding glass door and the canopy in front of the room. There’s a bit common area in the middle which make the motel more spacious. Although we stayed in Fox for one night only, we enjoyed so much here especially after a long drive from Wanaka.
Cons: The wall is not thick , so it is easy to listen to the sounds by adjacent room if the guests talk loudly. Luckily our adjacent guests did not disturb us much after evening. A small suggestion is: when the motel is not fully booked, different group of guests can be separated by one vacant room to solve the problem.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The host was very nice and friendly, informed the places to go. Room is so big and warm, provided with electrical blanket. Kitchen equiped with inductuon stove and dining equipment. There is big n warm bathroom also. Definetely will stay there again in the future.

Pros: Great location to visit both glaciers Franz Joseph and Fox in one day. View overlooking the town houses and sheds ?

9,3 Excellent
Pros: Great room, quite luxurious for the price
Cons: Reached the hotel at 6 45 pm, but the reception was closed. They had left a note, which I missed initially, so was quite distressed . Probably we were the only guests in the entire hotel , the place looked empty. But what irked me most was that nobody answered the phone which was listed. I had to go through booking .com to get some help Even they could not contact them initially. There was no kitchen , a restaurant was on-site but was closed. Overall was a bit disconcerting and eerie coming to a remote cold and dark place with kids to an empty hotel with no staff around.
3,0 Mediocre
Pros: The poor girl who worked their offered me her noodles for dinner otherwise nothing was good.
Cons: The hotel felt unsafe as the main reception area lead straight into the rooms - which would be fine if the reception area was properly staffed. There wasn’t anyone there when I arrive or when I left. The door to main reception area was also left unlocked. Even though I realise it’s a remote location, it’s still not safe to leave doors unlocked especially at hotels. 2. The windows were open and it was absolutely freezing when I first went in. The heating didn’t work well. 3. There is no food provided at this hotel! No breakfast or dinner options. Do not go here if you do not drive.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: Very large room. Seating area with coffee table and comfy armchairs. Comfy bed. Room for 2 suitcases on luggage racks. Big bathroom. Good shower. (though a little dated). Friendly staff. Washing machine and dryer in the laundry very clean and efficient. Think it was $2 a wash and $2 for a dryer cycle.
