Fantastic”

We stayed at this lovely motel in Fox Glacier. You never know what you will get when you pull into a new motel, but wow, this was the best little motel we stayed at in the South Island, it was the cheapest too! The owners were so kind and helpful, full of local advice. The room was perfect, comfy beds, electric blankets, heaters, Sky TV, full kitchen, lovely big bathroom with the strongest shower I have had in a motel. There was no noise at night whatsoever, and we slept so well. Just down the road is Lake Matheson, and the view point for Fox Glacier as well. Also just back up the road to the intersection is a restaurant called "Cook and Saddle" where we had a delicious meal. Also this Motel has a pet friendly room, so our little Maltese could stay with us. The owner has a friendly labrador that welcomes you to the motel. So if you want a quiet and comfy motel in Fox Glacier, Rainforest Motel fits the bill completely

We were satisfied with the facility provided and the room condition was sparkling clean and well equipped kitchen utensils. Last but not least the hotel keeper is a friendly guy , he even heated our room prior to our arrival in order to keep us warm. The location of the hotel is optimal which is close to the shops in town and with stunning view

It was easy to partition and sleep well with three older adults. We are an older family and with dad snoring loud, we were still able to sleep well. The rooms are warm and a simple setup to cook and share meals. Nice location to go do the tourism stuff.

Lovely motel in the middle of Fox Glacier village.”

Nice large motel rooms with a good kitchen and large bathroom. Good heating provided in the bathroom and living area. Beds have electric blankets. Parking is directly in front of each unit and easy to get in and out of. A Guest laundry is also provided at reasonable prices. The Motel was managed by a very friendly and helpful Scottish guy. He does a fantastic job.

An excellent motel. We received a most friendly and warm welcome. Our studio room was extremely well equipped with a large kitchen area, good sized sitting area and very comfy bed. The toilet/shower room was huge. Above all it was scrupulously clean. We only stayed one night but in other circumstances would be very happy to stay longer. Well done everyone at Rain Forest Motel.
