We booked a 'studio with spa bath' and the room was large. There were two beds (1 queen and 1 twin) plus a couch. It was fairly clean, but outdated. The mattress was pretty old and not terribly comfortable. There were only two pillows for the big bed. There was plenty of space and electrical outlets, plus a small dining table. The bathroom was large, and the spa bath did actually have jets. The motel did have free wifi, but it did not work on our iOS (iPhone or iPad) devices (even with our tech abilities). Worked fine on other phone and laptop, though. Be aware that the motel is about 2 km (1.3 mi) from the center of the small town of Fox Glacier. If you've got a car, great, but if you're dependent on buses, it's a long walk for restaurants or to transport. The motel does have a view of Mt. Cook, which is not visible from the center of town. We had a great stay in town, with a guided walk on Fox Glacier and a trip to Franz Josef for dinner & hot pools. Franz is at least 30 minutes' drive (or longer if you are careful on the windy roads).Pros: The room was a nice size, with plenty of space for the kitchenette and bathroom. We had a 'studio with spa bath' and it had two beds- a queen and a twin, plus a couch. It was clean.Cons: The place was pretty outdated, even compared to other NZ hotels we were at on our trip. Mattress was old. It was also about 2 km (1.3 mi) from the center of town.
