We were unable to secure accomm in Fox so we're recommended to this place. Yes I agree with some of the reviews to say this place is a little dated, but for the price we got everything we needed. We had the twin motel room. It was clean and tidy. The sheets were crisp and superb to sleep in, a...

we camped in the limited spaces available but close to the bijou kitchen that was a safe haven and budget saver in the pouring rain. The shelter allowed us to dry off. Close enough to Fox to drive to and also lake Matheson area. Lots of flies!

The Pine Grove Motel is very famous among cyclists along the South Island's west coast - it's just about the only accommodation between Fox and Haast so if you're not carrying a tent (or even if you are), everyone stops here. I rolled in very late one evening after a long day's ride from Whataroa and was greeted with all...

I booked this on the basis of its price compared to options at Fox Glacier. It is advertised as a "budget motel" and that is a fair description! Perhaps a little too budget on reflection.... Three things troubled me. 1.The lack of screening on all but one window in an area that was extremly full of sand flies. The choice,...

The budget rooms have one toilet and one shower between approximately 20 guests. Also the kitchen is shared. Friendly owner. And excellent location, I had deer, and cows coming up the back fence. Very cool!

Relatively cheap place to stay, but poorly maintained, older style decor, quite tired throughout.The bed was uncomfortable, with old bedding. The lack of a smoke alarm was a very worrying situation, not one that we have struck before, and especially worrying when there was no mobile phone signal, the staff were not on site, but up the road, and the...

We stayed in the famous room 11 - the one with a mirror on the ceiling, well to tell you the truth the other rooms might have mirrors above the beds also, but we and our friends who have stopped at Pine Grove Motel have only ever stayed in room 11. Love the mirror above the bed or hate it,...

I stayed here for two nights on a tent site, and it was the highlight of my trip on the coast. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the facilities incredibly clean. Awesome value for money too.

Very quiet motel in the middle of nowhere! Excellent location for the glaciers and although it was very dated, the price did reflect that. Linen was excellent, very clean smell! Cooking facilities left a bit to be desired, but we only had a studio unit, which would make a difference. Excellent friendly reception.
