We stayed in 2 cottages, side by side, as two couples travelling together. The cottages were clean, quiet and comfortable. There was a slight snag checking in as the Reception is located in a Motel round the corner. In addition, freezer door on the one room's small fridge jammed in some residual ice as it was being closed and unfortunately... More

Stayed overnight at this motel in Franz Josef. The 10 cottages are situated at the end of a cul de sac well away from the highway and they are therefore quiet and relaxing. It is only a 2-3 minute walk to the local cafes and restaurants in the Franz Josef township. Parking was convenient directly outside our unit. Our cottage... More

We were in the the main cottage which can comfortably sleep 7. It was set apart from the other cabins and next to the laundry. It's basic and adequate but not luxurious. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would I go back? Probably not. I'd travel on for another 20 mins and look for something in Fox Glacier,... More

Just stayed here 2 nights 2nd to 4th April. Cottages are spacious, lots of plug points for charging. Semi equipped kitchen with microwave and cutlery. Owners and management are courteous, friendly and very helpful! The lady on reception gave us great tips for things to do in FJG. The owner/manager brought us couple of fresh scones and jam on 2nd...

The accomodation was very central, clean and comfortable and great value. We even had scones delivered which was very nice and much appreciated! The accomodation wasn't super modern but it was very clean and comfortable and well priced. We have no complaints at all about our stay.

Large room. Very clean. Our room wason corner and had nice view of sunrise over the mountaintop. Very pleasant staff. Scone delivery was a lovely unexpected surprise. Free wifi using coupons. Be sure to check out the glow worms at night! Great central location for area sights.

The 10 Cottages were exactly what we expected...not luxurious, but very suitable. The information on how to find the lodge was provided to us when we booked, so we didn't have any problems locating the place. The cottage was clean and had a kitchenette that allowed us to eat breakfast on-site. Very close to all restaurants. We'd stay there again.

We had a hard time finding the 10 Cottages Hotel and learned that other guests had the same problem. It is tucked behind other buildings on a dead end cul de sac. First of all, rather than 10 Cottages, it should be called 10 Shipping Containers. They are small but clean and I guess if they were not priced as... More

Great modern self contained cottages. Walking distance from the main street. Great for short stays. Checking in at the terrace motel is easy and no trouble finding the units behind the motel. Would highly recommend if staying in Franz josef
