      Basic but modern motel facility.

    • Older travelers

      good location and clean facilities

      small with unpleasant outlook

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Kitchenette. Laundry facilities.

      Rooms were a bit dingy. Wouldn't have mattered if the weather had been good, but rain increased several hours after we arrived, and visibility was nil. We'd hiked to Franz Josef Glacier while it was still clear enough to see up the valley, but our plans for longer hikes with views of the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers were squashed. We left the area a day early rather than spend it reading in the dreary room (there's nothing to do in Franz Josef Village if you can't be outdoors and you don't like shopping). Room would have been better if they had higher-wattage lightbulbs and bedside lamps. The weather wasn't the staff's fault, and our stay would have excellent if we'd been able to be out of the room.

      the keeper is nice and willing to help out. The room is reasonably large and comfortable

    • Older travelers

      very nice staff willing to go overboard to help.

    • Couple

      nice and quiet, set back 1 street from the main highway.

      bed was abit short

    • Older travelers

      This place is beautiful, excellent choice, nothing negative to talk about, I'll choose this place again if I'm back to this city one day!

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Great location in Franz Josef. Owner very helpful booking glacier trip. Very comfortable motel.

    • Couple
      7.8

      Close to everything and room was of a good standard

    • Family with children
      8.8

      On arrival we were shown our room and as we had a portacot we were given a larger unit so it would fit in our room. Thought this was excellent service. Liked the touch of the mints on the table!. Excellent kitchen facilities. Very nice friendly staff

      Possibly the room was a bit dark as the only windows were in the bedrooms. However it was nice and roomy so we're not complaining!

    • Group of friends
      5.4

      It Was the most expensive 2 bedroom motel we have stayed in We are still in a state of shock at the price of such a basic standard of accomodation and will not be recommending it to any future visitor to the region. I am annoyed at myself for not picking up on the pricing in the initial email, Thanking You

    • Group of friends

      Late arrival notified and arrangements were made. Staff were still present when we arrived. Easy check-out

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Facilities were basic but the motel was comfortable, clean and quiet. Having the facilities to make a meal in the room was very helpful.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      friendly staff. Room quite basic, but clean. Great restaurant next door. Close by amenities, such as shops, petrol etc. Close to glaciers.

      Plan for rain.....

    • Group of friends
      9.2

      Excellent room in an ideal landscape

      Rain, but that's part of the Experience!
