The Rainforest Motel is a family-owned and operated motel situated in the small, picturesque village of Fox Glacier on the West Coast of the South Island.



We have 12 ground-floor units, situated on spacious grounds in a beautiful garden setting. We have 6 studio units, 2 x 1-bedroom units and 4 x 2-bedroom units. We are a traditional New Zealand motel with well-equipped kitchens and ensuite bathrooms. We provide free WiFi and are the only motel in Fox Glacier offering SKY TV, including SKY Movies, SKY Sports and BBC World. We are within walking distance of a number of good-quality restaurants serving great food, wines and coffee, yet only a short drive will take you to the spectacular ice formations of the Fox Glacier, the tranquil beauty of Lake Matheson or the wild, rugged coastline at Gillespies Beach.
