    The room was clean and well presented and had all that we were looking for. We were able to cook a meal. The area was quiet at night. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately it was only a brief overnight stay but would be more than happy to spend longer there next time.

    The staff were very knowledgeable of the area. Recommended a great place to eat. Pointed out a great spot to see the glacier and offered great discounts on the helicopter flights onto the glacier, unfortunately cloud cover made it impossible to fly. The mountain views from our room were exceptional.

    Unfortunately we did run out of hot water in the shower.

    Lovely big bed.Enjoyed the Spa. Nice rural outlook.

    We have never come across a sign expecting us to wash our own dishes at a motel before.A bit tricky with no tea towel. We were wondering if we had to make our own bed as well!!

    Good location.

    Bed mattresses too soft-uncomfortable. No sofa bed available for accompanying child. The folding bed provided was horrible and exra charge for this bed was high.

    Very pretty views of the glacier mountains

    Outdated furnishings, unpleasant bathroom design with no storage options. Room requires upgrading.

    Superb

    Very pleasant and helpful owner / receptionist, great welcome. Wish we could have spent more than two nights at this accommodation to explore the area in more detail.

    Bit of a long walk into town but a great location and great views anyway.

    Unfriendly staff who refused to abide to the terms and conditions stated on the Booked.net printout. We had booked a 1 bedroom for 4 adults and the staff insisted we booked another studio room when he knew we had 6 people (4 adults and 2 kids). We told the staff that the kids were only 2 and 3 yrs old and it is impossible for the kids to sleep on their own and that we were willing to pay extra for the kids in the same 1 bedroom. The staff refused even when we showed him the terms and conditions stated on the Booked.net printout.Very unfriendly staff and we felt he were out to make money out of us! We had no issues with other accommodations at all except at Sunset Motel! Not recommending this motel at all.
