"Had a great stay at Sunset Motel for 1 night at Fox Glacier. It was raining when i reached there and no activities could be done e.g. Snow Landing, Heli hike, Ice hike so we tried checking into the hotel which was around 11am. They were cleaning up the rooms so the reception told us we were only able to check in earliest at 1pm which was fair enough. Rooms were clean and they provide a plug in heater which is very very important when you are at Fox Glacier and when it is raining. Even the toilet had its own heater. It's a motel not an apartment but we had a toaster and microwave in the motel which was good for us to make simple meals. The view out the backyard was nice. You are able to see Fox Glacier but still cannot beat the view when you fly up over Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, and over the glacier and thick white powdered virgin snow. Fox Glacier was awesome and glad that we had Sunset Motel to accommodate us for the night."

"I would highly rate this accommodation and it is excellent value for money- however, Fox Glacier as a destination appears rather neglected by the authorities compared with the Franz Joseph Glacier- seeing the Glacier here is problematic as only one path was open during my visit and the authorities were maintaining this using tarmac from a road leading up to the glacier on the track nearest the town. The best viewpoint for Fox Glacier is actually on the road which leads to Lake Mathieson."

"It was a pleasant, easy stay, the room was big, the bathroom modern and big, kitchen compact and efficient, storage space is good, we had a big backyard space, and from my bed, there was a snowcapped mountain view every morning when I opened my eyes. Also, when I booked it on the internet, it said that breakfast was an additional $13 pp, when we got there, they had a special for that period that breakfast is free, and we were able to avail, which was a bonus. Another great bonus, my booking was for a room with a queen bed and a fold out additional bed, as I am travelling with kids 11 and 8 yo... When we arrived, the young lovely couple upgraded us to a room with two queen beds... The laundry room is also very spacious, the surroundings all clean, and in the afternoon, the Westhaven probably has the best sunset view amongst all the hotels / motels in Fox Glacier... (this was month of September)"

"From the time I arrived at the Bella Vista I was warmly greeted and welcomed by the lovely lady at the reception desk who offered me fresh milk for hot drinks along with hot chocolate packets which weren't in the room. Pretty much every request was attended to swiftly but also any questions no matter how silly were answered honestly and throughly. She was always happy for a quick friendly chat as well. My room faced onto the road on the ground floor so there was slight noise coming from the road but the town is so small that the noise is minimum, unless you are there when the towns fire alarm goes off. This is very loud and occurs when there is a fire, car crash or something similar and I'll ring until they have enough people to help the situation. The loudest noise you'll probably get is when the large coaches arrive into the town. Being at the end of the town there isn't much noise around from other hotels or the bars as they are at the other end of the street. Location of the hotel is convienent being at the end of the main street in Fox Glacier township so everything is just a quick walk up the hill; being the convenience store, restaurants and the checkin location for the Glacier tours. Just next door to the hotel is a little walking track leading through the rainforest that leads to the base of the Glacier itself. Lake Matheson is a good walk from the town but there are people who will drive you there return for $10 and is well worth the walk around the lake. My favorite feature of my room was the heating available; being the great wall heater along with the electric blanket on the bed but the best thing was the in bath spa. Greatly needed this after a tour on the glacier as it was relaxing and heated. The TV has the normal channels in NZ with some cable movie channels included. I was nothing but impressed with the Bella Vista in Fox Glacier from the moment I arrived until I unforturnely had to leave. I would recommend this hotel to other travel"

"We were heading up Fox Glacier and wanted to get accommodation close to the Glacier store. This was the only property that was within our budget and looked like a decently clean hotel so we took a chance on this and never looked back. Room was exceptionally clean, spacious and the toilet had it's own rain bath shower head which was excellent. We stayed in the room that had it's toilet recently renovated and it looked like a 5 star hotel toilet. Do remember to close the windows fully at night though, as moths and flies tend to follow the light and find their way in. Overall, it was a good 2 nights' sleep and would definitely book again if we head back. "
