The room at this motel was very comfortable and clean plus the bathroom was excellent so I would stay again. As I am a late sleeper it did not concern me too much but the main negative was both neighbours of my room could be heard very easily, one side was a Chinese tourist who talked nonstop until midnight and...

Quite adequate accommodation for a one or two night stay. The rooms are large and well equipped, the beds very comfortable. The room seemed a bit gloomy but it was classic wet NZ West Coast evening. Fox Glacier is a small community with limited facilities, especially for dinner and/or breakfast but the kitchen facility helps.

We travelled to Fox Glacier and stayed at the well recommended Bella Vista Motel. While the rooms were clean and functional as a whole, we have constantly felt a serious lack of security, with a long corridor along almost all the guest rooms. There seems to be room for improvement in terms of infrastructure. A number of areas in the...

Fox Glacier is a tiny palce with town spanning few 100 meters. For such a small place, This place is a excellent for over night stay. Conviniently located close to all amenities its good for budget accomodation.

Freya at the front desk is the most amazing receptionist I have ever seen!!! Instead of the normal "professional" smile, Freya has that truly beautiful face that you can see her genuine heart trying to help you in whatever way she could. From leading us to the glowworm track to booking helicopter trips with discount, she made me feel that...

Fox Glacier isn't that big, so being in a great central location isn't hard, but this place is ideal for short stay in a great little town. Nice little rooms with an ensuite bathroom with heater and exhaust fan, kitchenette, couch, heater and a small flatscreen TV with some Sky channels. Fairly basic, but it's hard to beat near new...

Great location (Fox Glacier is tiny, so hard to be a bad location here), but walking distance from the "Saloon". Owners very nice and helpful. Room maintained perfectly, motel is 6 years old and looks brand new inside and out.
