  • Older travelers

    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.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    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.

    Great room with lovely view of the peak of Mt Tasman and Mt Cook and the staff were wonderful. No hassle stay in a great town.

  • Older travelers

    The positon and the view from the Motel. High standard of comfort and cleanliness.

    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!!

  • Family with children
    5.8

    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.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Very pretty views of the glacier mountains

    Outdated furnishings, unpleasant bathroom design with no storage options.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

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    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.

  • Family with children
    3.8

    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.

  • Group of friends

    Furnishings rather dated. Mountain view only just possible around the corner on a clear day!

  • Older travelers

    Very comfortable room with good facilities and fabulous views of mountains from window and outdoor seating area.

    A notice threatening a $20 fine if you didn't wash up your dishes.

  • Older travelers

    It was very well equipped, helpful friendly staff.

    The helicopters woke us up.
