We stayed one night, rooms (2) were spacious and very clean, facilities good, acces from outside perfect. Internet is through vouchers, kind childish, but that is the way in New Zealand. Price is rather high, but once you are in Franz Josef there are not very much alternatives

Stayed here two nights. The room was large, had a kitchenette and ensuite shower. The bed was comfortable, the shower powerful. Wifi worked well. The front desk personnel was very friendly, indeed. Offers self-service laundry, is situated a stone's throw from a supermarket and cafes, still is quiet. Recommend self-made breakfast in the room!

A short drive away to the Glaciers. The unit we had was clean and had a basic kitchen with microwave which was handy. Heaters were...

The room was as expected for a motel of this type. Room very clean and friendly reception staff. Convenient for shops and restaurants which are only a 5 minute walk away. Scenery is stunning with 26 degree temperatures in the town and snow capped mountains in the background.

Lovely motel situated against native bush. Short stroll to town and restaurants. Tidy with modern furnishings and plenty of utensils in the kitchen to cook a meal. Just across the road from the beautiful hot pools.

Conveniently located within a few minutes walk of bars and restaurants, 5 minutes drive from the Glacier car park, this place was great for what we needed. We had the 'basic' studio room which had microwave, fridge, hob, all the necessary utensils, single and double beds, dining table, good bathroom.....everything we needed for our 2 nights there.

The room was relatively small in comparison to other places we have stayed. It was comfortable enough - really glad we were only staying for one night. I really didn't like the fact that all the rooms face each other - there is no privacy at all. Would recommend that you research other places.

Loving our stay, however they don't allow early check in. Free wifi, Sky Channel, microwave, little kitchenette. Just good enough for all 6 of us. For us it's company that matters. So it's all good. Loving it.

We (2 adults, 12 and 10 yr old) stayed in a two bed unit for two nights. The location was good and the unit very modern. The kitchen was OK - we discovered 'half oven' means grill only (you can grill a pizza!). Laundry was a bit more expensive than expected as drier took 3 goes instead 1 to get...
