The room was spacious, clean and centrally located. The hosts were very so kind and took us out to get a view of the Glacier. We enjoyed our stay very much. They let us keep our luggage in their lobby till our bus left after check out. Wonderful experience.

An old fashioned motel well equipped and very clean rooms.Only an overnight stay but right in the centre of town and so enabled us to arrange a glacier flight with helicopter landing,allarranged by the host.Comfortable beds and a nice grassy area to sit out behind the room. Great views great stay.

We were able to do our laundry as well as have the internet we require. The motel was clean and comfortable and the hosts friendly and helpful. Easy walk to restaurants and pubs. The weather was perfect in March!

The motel is quite nice and well located. But, unfortunately, the main street is in front of the hotel, so it could be al little bit noisy. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean with lots of space. We can recommend this motel.

we stayed overnight coming from Hawea and Haast on our way to Greymouth - we have had a very warm welcome - the room was clean and large enough for 2 - many restaurants and shops at less that 1 minute walking distance -

We stayed here overnight as we were making our way up the west coast of NZ from Queenstown. It is clean, staff friendly, close to Fox Glacier hike. Sandi at the front desk recommended a wonderful restaurant that was in easy walking distance. Fox Glacier is a smaller town than Franz Joseph so much quieter.

The stay at The Westhaven was completely catered for. The hosts were very friendly and exceptionally helpful in activities and catering to requests. The accommodation was very clean and the underfloor heating was a bonus. I absolutely enjoyed my stay here and look forward to coming back again. Thank you very much!

Ok for a 1-night stay--rooms are a bit noisy because of the direct parking lot access to all the rooms, but I guess since the options are so limited in this town you take what you can get. Amenities inside the room were ok, the place was reasonably clean and like other reviewers said, basic but clean enough. Beds were...

Very friendly and helpful at check-in. Lovely spacious, comfortable and clean accommodation. Great to have a bath with shower. Walk into village couldn't be easier, but it was quiet. Easy access to Glacier and Lake Matheson. Highly recommended.

The room is spacious measuring 4 metres across by about 9 metres deep and our had two double beds and a combined bath and shower in a good sized bathroom. It is described as having a 'fully equipped kitchenette' which is wholly inaccurate as there was no cooker. Upon enquiring about this we were provided with a Sunbeam electric frying...
