10.0 Excellent
Pros: Spacious room. Clean bathroom. The facilities are really great.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We were welcomed by the great hospitality of the owner. I like her smile and she introduced the motel and the town in detail. Also, the day before we arrived Fox, we worried about the road connection between Fox and FJ as the bridge is broken by heavy rain. We called and asked the owners and she explain the condition to us clearly to ease our worries. The room is as same as the picture shown in the booking website. The room is sparkling clean and bright, more than I expected. The water supply is strong and stable, which is very important in May. I particularly like the sliding glass door and the canopy in front of the room. There’s a bit common area in the middle which make the motel more spacious. Although we stayed in Fox for one night only, we enjoyed so much here especially after a long drive from Wanaka.
Cons: The wall is not thick , so it is easy to listen to the sounds by adjacent room if the guests talk loudly. Luckily our adjacent guests did not disturb us much after evening. A small suggestion is: when the motel is not fully booked, different group of guests can be separated by one vacant room to solve the problem.
10.0 Excellent

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The location was good, short walking distance from the small town.

Along with this, the “customer service” was non-existent. The property stated that it was pay at property, however I was forced to pay beforehand. When we arrived, there was no one at reception, just a piece of A4 paper stuck to the locked door showing me and other guests where our rooms were - in Australia it is illegal to make it known to other guests where everyone is staying, not sure about NZ. When we called to complain, there was no answer, and to this day - about a week after our stay - I have not received a response via phone or email to the phone calls and emails I sent.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great room, quite luxurious for the price
Cons: Reached the hotel at 6 45 pm, but the reception was closed. They had left a note, which I missed initially, so was quite distressed . Probably we were the only guests in the entire hotel , the place looked empty. But what irked me most was that nobody answered the phone which was listed. I had to go through booking .com to get some help Even they could not contact them initially. There was no kitchen , a restaurant was on-site but was closed. Overall was a bit disconcerting and eerie coming to a remote cold and dark place with kids to an empty hotel with no staff around.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: The poor girl who worked their offered me her noodles for dinner otherwise nothing was good.
Cons: The hotel felt unsafe as the main reception area lead straight into the rooms - which would be fine if the reception area was properly staffed. There wasn’t anyone there when I arrive or when I left. The door to main reception area was also left unlocked. Even though I realise it’s a remote location, it’s still not safe to leave doors unlocked especially at hotels. 2. The windows were open and it was absolutely freezing when I first went in. The heating didn’t work well. 3. There is no food provided at this hotel! No breakfast or dinner options. Do not go here if you do not drive.
