We stayed for two nights at 10 Cottages and throughly enjoyed our stay. The cottages are located in a residential area off the main Franz Josef high street, which means you're in a quiet and more private location. The cottages are self contained and offer a superb view of the mountains, which is so nice to look out onto from... More

Helpful and friendly staff, who provided some good info on the town and local walks. The room itself was a nice size and clean. Nicely insulated and warmed with the heater. It is standard and everything was as expected and so Would happily stay again.

10 Cottages is a few hundred metres from anywhere in Franz Josef you might want to go (it's not that big a place). The chalets themselves seemed pretty new. They were certainly warm enough in April and we both slept very well. There is a little kitchen, certainly good enough for a simple breakfast. There is a walk with glow... More

These cottages seem quite new so everything is quite modern and comfortable. Also close to the center of town so an easy walk to everything. a couple of things let it down: 1. the reception is actually not near the cottages but down the street in a different building. 2. the front desk staff seemed a bit unprofessional. When we... More

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.
