Great little motel a stones throw from Fox Glacier...nice big room and several restaurants within 2 minute walk. We'd definitely stay there again on a future trip. The views are also something special - mountains directly behind the motel.

We stayed here when we went to the Glaciers. It was very comfortable and we liked the gas BBQ you could use. The room was large and contemporary. A very comfortable bed which is always appreciated when you are touring. A couple of places to eat very near by which is handy when you are tired.

We used the hospitality of this hotel during our roundtrip through NZ. We were welcomed very friendly in the reception. They helped us to choose the helicopter company for the next day and even booked our flight tickets.

It doesn't look much from the outside but the rooms are hotel quality. Well equipped including the kitchen. We also were grateful to use their $1 washing machine It is close to the centre of Fox Glacier so you can walk to the guide place and the restaurants

We only spent a night in this hotel, arriving early evening and leaving next morning, so really can't speak for long-term, but found the owners to be very helpful and friendly and accommodations good!

Stayed at the Westhaven for 2 nights during our journey across the South Island. Great location and very quiet. Also very close to Fox Glacier. Owners were very helpful and directed us to a local foot trail where we were able to see many,many glow worms during an amazing evening walk.

The room was spacious, clean and centrally located. The hosts were very so kind and took us out to get a view of the Glacier. We enjoyed our stay very much. They let us keep our luggage in their lobby till our bus left after check out. Wonderful experience.
