    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.

    Superb

    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!

    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
