If you fancy being greeted by cold, officious staff, this is your place. We arrived 2 hours before check in and my wife was suffering from bladder infection with serious pain. There were no public toilets on the way and arrived desperate to use the loo. My wife explained her condition but was told that no toilet would be made...

Hello Paul, Thank you for your comments. Your booking agent would have provided information that our check-in time is 2 pm and check-out is at 10 am. As you know, these hours between check-out and check-in are vital to allow our housekeeping staff to clean and prepare the rooms for our new guests each day. As is standard practice globally,...

The location is perfect-- right across the...

The room was fairly large and clean. The woman at check-in was very friendly and helpful. Wi-fi didn't work very well but overall we liked the place. You can walk to any of the local restaurants/bars. We would stay here again if we're in Franz Joseph.

Alex was the bomb. Very cherry and helpful. Goid recommendations from her. Room was at the end of the parking area and as soon as you walk out of the room, you had a wonderful view of the rainforest and the Southern Alps.

Motel is fine, staff friendly. Room rather dark and dreary, but bed comfortable and shower room fine. Small kitchenette with basic equipment, fine for one night. Wi-if available and reasonable connection speed, but continually drops connection requiring constant logging back in, which is unnecessary in this day and age. Vouchers for 300mb of data available at reception, but this system...
