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...

Not a lot to say! The room (R8) we were given did the job... nothing more nothing less. It was spacious, clean and the bed was quite comfortable. It was basic and could use a bit of a face lift. We could hear the guests in the room next door so watch what you're saying or doing! As far as...

We had a very nice stay at the Westhaven motel. We found the hotel extremely clean and neat, and the free internet a major plus. In addition, we found the staff extremely accommodating, making excellent recommendations for dinner and allowing us some flexibility in use of the room. The only issue we had with our stay was with the water...

There are quite a few options in the area but I think this is one of the better ones. Very comfortable, nicely equipped and furnished, the hotel was quiet, comfortable and relaxing. Nothing flash or fancy but all fits nicely and works well. Close to a few great cafes and restaurants and of course the stunningly spectacular Fox Glacier and...

Fabulous room with helpful and friendly hosts. Well equipped and spacious with clean and modern kitchenette. Very busy motel with lots of small bus tours booking in so you have to book in advance. Located across the road from fox glacier guiding for walks bookings and the motel offers a very generous discount on bookings for helicopter scenic flights.
