          Motel was impressively neat and tidy and had all the basic facilities we needed. Obviously a very well managed motel! We were glad to have spent our Christmas there....and would choose to return again if we ever have to get to Fox Glacier again!

          Stayed here for one night while in the region. Staff where friendly let us check-in early. Room was large and well equipped a bit old in places but nothing that was a deal breaker. Compared to what else is on offer I would stay again.
