Great location, and owner was so friendly and happy to give suggestions where to walk. Room was so big and spacious huge ceilings and massive bathroom. Was good value for money. $130 a night. Only downside was our neighbours were very noisy could hear them talking after we had turned the tv off. But apart from that would stay here...

Everything we needed for a quick overnight stay for our family of 4. Comfortable Double bed, a single and a fold away bed in the cupboard. All amenities provided and it was walking distance to shops and restaurants. Good value and nice and clean.

Room was comfortable; manager was helpful and provided a free room upgrade. He was helpful with information on the town features as well as helicopter flight booking arrangements. All bookings were then made swiftly and conveniently. Motel was conveniently 5 minutes from town centre.

We stayed in Franz Joseph for one night and booked this the night before. When we arrived the reception desk was extremely helpful and our room was clean and all we needed. Had spaces to park your car for free outside your room.

Was a pleasant surprise clean, close to the town, friendly and more than adequate. Stayed for one night on route to Wanaka would have no problem recommending the motel it does what it says on the tin.

Needed a Motel just for one night to do Glacier Walk. Booked this by chance but very pleased as modern and only one street back from all the restaurants. The Manager (Owner?) was excellent being very friendly and helpful. The layout of the Motel is at first a bit strange but has been dictated by the slope as the road...
