Enjoyed our stay at 10 Cottages. Very clean, spacious self catering lodging within a few minutes walk to local tourist attractions, restaurants/cafes. Helpful staff and we were even treated to freshly baked scones at tea time which was a lovely surprise!

We stayed here for three nights and it was wonderful. We had a cosy little cabin that doesn't take long to warm up and had amazing mountain views (cottage 1) right from the bed! Walking distance to everything in town and the staff are friendly. Would stay again for sure.

Stayed at 10 Cottages many times and always really friendly, super clean and tidy. Very quiet and private with several good eating places nearby. Have bought a few international travellers with us and always impressed.

Logan waited up for us to arrive since it took a bit longer to get there than we had guessed with driving on winding roads, on the opposite side of the road than we are used to, and jet lag. :) The stay was very nice. It was a little cottage that was the perfect size for us. The microwave... More

Great location, clean and modern with good signage (office is located away from the cottages so needed to find the office but aided with signs). Staff were helpful no complaints. Facilities were as described and found everything easy to use, would definitely stay here again if I were in Franz Josef.

New units with good and comfortable beds. Room was nice and warm and was equipped with a heater and electric blankets. The room comes with a microwave oven, but no stove. Unit was clean and new. Great accommodation and easy parking available.

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
