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 are perfectly situated for you to enjoy a relaxing break while exploring the tranquillity of the Westland National Park and South West World Heritage Area.

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 and the Peak Viewpoint, or the wild, rugged coastline at Gillespies Beach.


We have 12 ground-floor Fox Glacier accommodation units located in our spacious grounds. All our motel units are smokefree.

Fox Glacier Activities

The glacier region offers a large range of things to do – glacier hikes and helicopter flights, wilderness walks to Lake Matheson and Gault, beachcombing at Gillespies Beach, biking and hiking through the native rainforest, glowworms, and plenty more... We can advise you on how to get the most out of the area, so please don't arrive on the evening and leave first thing in the morning – why not stay a couple of nights?
