10 Cottages has very nice units. They are definitely a value. We were especially pleased with the cooperative management. We would up having to leave Franz Josef after just two nights of a three-night reservation, and they were very accommodating in not charging us for the third night. Lots of good advice on things to do and places to eat.

I'm just coming towards the end of a 10 day stay in the Franz Josef area and have found the accomodation at 10 Cottages to be absolutely perfect for my needs. The owner and staff have gone out of their way to be helpful, friendly and accommodating and the spotlessly clean room fully reflects their approach to their guests. I... More

Thank you for your comments. I hope the rest of your trip goes well and you make it back here to do some of the other walks one day. I forgot to mention the Copland Valley (and welcome flat), if you make it back it would be another great walk to do. I hope your few days in Australia were... More

Nice comfortable and convenient accommodation. Hosts very helpful and knowledgable about the district and available activities could not be more helpful. Close to Kiwi exhibit, restaurants and excellent glacier flight.

Extremely comfortable king sized bed, bathroom slightly squishy, can cook for yourself in the lovely set out kitchen. Views of the mountains with snow on the top peaks, all in all good value and spotless. Owner was friendly and able to give lots of helpful advice on where to eat out and what to see.

Good value and compact . Spotlessly clean and great position. Make sure to do the helicopter flight onto the glacier and you can walk to see glow worms late at night. Good places to eat nearby so good location if staying only a couple of nights
