Lake Matheson Motel



NZ owned and operated by a local Fox Glacier family.
We offer newly refurbished, comfortable accommodation set in large parklike grounds, just 400 metres from the heart of the village cafes, bars and shops. We are 4 kms from Lake Matheson and the Fox Glacier.
With an onsite laundry, super fast fibre wifi unlimited, undercover parking directly in front of your rooms, and smart TV's arriving June 2021.

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.

We look forward to meeting you at our motel in Fox Glacier soon.
