If you're looking for motels in Fox Glacier offering great quality, value and comfortable accommodation, then Lake Matheson Motels, just 400 metres from the heart of the township and only 4 kms from Lake Matheson and the Fox Glacier, is an ideal choice for you.

Lake Matheson Motel has been in business as a New Zealand West Coast accommodation since 1988. The original Fox Glacier accommodation was built by the Halsey's, and is still owned by the same family. Today it is run by Fox Glacier residents John, Myra and their son Jamie. Their love of South Westland is reflected in their knowledge of the area, and their desire to share that knowledge and enthusiasm with you.

Lake Matheson Motel has a wide range of rooms. We have been expanding and renovating the complex continually and now have a modern mix of studios and family accommodation.

  • Average stay, i couldn't give it a "thumbs up", but it doesn't necessarily deserve a "thumbs down" either. Limited (slow) wifi available. The unit was a bit dated with some renovations done however it felt like there was limited insulation and no double glazing, some light bulbs were out and there was a curtain missing in the bedroom which wasn't ideal in the morning! the owners were very friendly and had some good local knowledge. They can arrange discounted helicopter sightseeing trips too. 5

  • Nice and clean but, the walls were as thin as paper, the TV reception was terrible and don't blame the coast the motel up the road had great reception. The curtains were more nets than light stoppers. End result not much sleep. 1

  • On arrival at reception, no smile, no friendly greeting, was told "I am serving someone else". When I didn't move, as there was no one else there, the statement was repeated, along with hand gesticulations to move away. I did, and went and sat outside in our car. Had we not prepaid, we would have been long gone. A smile and a kind word costs nothing, first impressions are everything. Would not go back. 1
