Warm & comfy ”

The host gave us a little bottle of milk when we arrived. Heater was good, and floor heat pump in bathroom was amazing. It is quiet, though it’s close to the main road. There is 6min from lake Matheson and only 24min drive from Franz Josef. Anyway, it’s a good choice if you want to stay couples of days and hiking both Fox & Franz Josef glacier.

Very good”

Great location, only a two-minute walk to the town and restaurants. The heating was very efficient -- which we appreciated being visitors from hot Malaysia -- and the queen beds had good support, with warm comforters and sheets. The room was quiet and clean, with high speed Internet and good TV reception. Only one issue: Westhaven billed me twice for my room, and I had to request for a refund. Although I am grateful they refunded me quickly, I would urge other visitors to be careful to monitor their billing.

Comfortable and Clean”

Big spacious room, large bathroom, our room (number 2) had a view of snow capped mountain when I woke up in the morning, very nice

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)
