Great location near Lake Matheson ”

The name isn't a lie. We were up at 6:30 a.m. and on the steps of our unit taking photos of Mt. Cook and Mt. Tasman. Wonderful views. A bit later we drove the three minutes to Lake Matheson (this is the closest motel to the lake I think) and were doing the walk there for its views. The units are spacious and good value for the price paid. No hesitation in recommending this place.

Not in the village, so it's great for seeing the stars at night”

That's pretty much it. The staff are friendly, the room is good. It's a long walk or short drive from the restaurants, but you do get a view of Mt Cook, and it is dark enough to get a great view of the southern skies at night when it's not overcast

The motel may be great but the cottages are not!”

As a group if three requiring an efficiency unit, the only choice seemed to be one of two very old and tired cottages. Upon arrival both doors and all windows were open to air the place snd it didn’t work. There was a distinct damp smell and there was much evidence of mold on the windows and rear door. A window latch on a bathroom window was missing meaning one had to close it from the outside and it remained insecure. The reception host was fabulous and the main motel looked great from the outside. But sadly the rear cottages are past their prime.

Exceeded All Expectations, Clean and Comfortable”

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.

We had perfect weather for Helihike but were soaked in sweat and found Mt.Cook View Motel a true paradise (thank you for the welcom milk!). The bathroom was big and clean, shower of great pressure. The hosts (sorry I forgot your names) gave excellent orientation and we watched the most beautiful sunset just 5-minute drive down the road. Lake Matheson is also minutes away. The night was tranquil and blessed with stars. It was definitely a highlight of our trip.
