    Great location to access glacier helicopter operators and restaurants. Room is not big big but clean.

    nice hotel, rooms good - very happy.

    being picky it looks a bit shed like from the front.

    The motel is well located and the rooms are really nice

    After a full day of driving in the west coast roads without Internet we chose this hotel because they promised free wifi. We were disappointed to find out that you can get only one device connected (either your laptop or your phone, not both) and only for one hour and a very limited amount of data. After that they charge money. Also, we spent 5 hours and about 20$ trying to use the washing machine and dryer and got all of our laundry still wet - the dryer wasn't working well.

    Clean spacious quiet unit within walking distance to restaurants and the main tourist area.Comfortable bed, and outside sitting area for relaxing.Friendly helpful staff.

    Kerry was very friendly

    Was hoping the room was a litter bigger, we paid for a deluxe executive room, with super king bed and spa bath - this was correct however was a very very small bath we couldn't use. (Misinterpreted design of room) we had booked a baby sitter so my husband and I could relax in bath and pamper - this wasn't able to happen. Very clean room though - except the mascara on my pillow :(

    The super friendly and knowledgeable staff/owners. We stayed twin share and it was a spacious room with excellent sized beds. Everything was very neat and tidy and we felt very comfortable staying there.

    That I couldn't stay longer.

    When I checked in at the Westhaven after a long drive but with plenty of excitement at arriving in a new (to me) and spectacular part of the country, I was wholeheartedly greeted by the host - and I liked that she conveyed a similar excitement for the place (Fox Glacier) as me! She was more than happy to offer suggestions about where to eat and what to see. Her recommendation of a night walk along a rainforest walkway to see the glow worms turned out to be one of the most magical experiences I've ever had! The motel is located in a great spot. Restaurants, shops (and the glow worm forest!) are all right there on your doorstep. I liked the set up of our room. It was pleasantly quiet, there was plenty of space, it was very clean and well-laid out. Sliding doors out to a courtyard was a bonus too. The heating unit was great and the bed very comfortable.

    It's hard to think of anything I didn't like... but a small gripe would be the noise of the bathroom fan. It's quite loud and is unavoidable if you want light as there is just one switch. This by no means detracts from the overall awesomeness of the place!

    Near to both Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers, Mathieson Lake and Highway. Kerry the manageress was exceptionally helpful and friendly just what was needed when arriving somewhere unknown.

    Nothing

    Good about this hotel is a combination of different factors - location, price, room, free wifi. When hotel offers 5 nzd for 30 minutes of internet I can say theat they are greedy! This hotel gives it free which very important on the other side of earth.

    I was named as Rude because arrived late at 22.30 but I didn't know that reception works till 22pm. I got a fine from police for overspeeding for 170 nzd to come faster and spent on the road about 6 hours and was named Rude. Not right.

    The room was spacious and met our requirements. Only issue was the fridge's thermostat was making noise would have been sorted if that was escalated with housekeeping.

    Nothing really

  • Couple

    The staff simply could not have been any more friendly or welcoming and really went out of their way to make it a fantastic stay. Location is great for Fox Glacier and skydiving and bikes are available to hire on site at very reasonable prices

    No cooker or hob in the room only a microwave

    The owners were very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and well turned out. they provided fresh milk on arrival and also an amount of free wifi time. Location was good for the area - close to bar / cafe / walks etc

    having to pay for addition wifi

  • Couple
    7.0

    Great size and clean room. Comfortable bed.

    The limitations of the free WiFi: one device per room and was terribly slow to the point of not working.
