Well situated towards the end of the village, but only a short walk to shops and tourist facilities. A nice touch was a bottle of chilled milk given when we booked in. Everything was clean and in working order. Free Wi-fi (using code) was most welcome. Car parking immediately outside the unit. Unable to see the mountains behind due to... More

Set with a stunning back drop, well equipped 1 bed with the 2nd bed in general living area. Double mattress in the living area very uncomfortable , to the point we moved it on to the floor. Would suggest the beds require replacing with something of higher quality;with a sturdier base. Plenty of local bars and restaurants all within walking... More

We arrived at this motel fresh from an experience of four and five star hotels in Australia, so it would have been easy to have felt let down by its inevitably slightly more rustic charms. But our room, and the motel's location just off the main street in Franz Ferdinand, suited us perfectly for our stay, where we really only... More

This motel is well located in Franz Josef and acceptable for a quick one night stay. The unit was clean and fairly spacious but the couch needs to be thrown away. It smelled and was very much worn out. Also they say it's a pull out but we couldn't figure it out, it kept springing back to a couch and... More

No complaints about the room itself - it was clean and comfortable. Good shower. 500MB of free wifi per person. Well equipped kitchenette (which had a list of requests of foods which should not be cooked in the room like onions or seafood due to the smells that can linger). It was nice to have a DVD player in the... More

There wasn't too many options available to us for the night we wanted to stay in Franz Joseph. But we were pleased to find at two bedroom unit at 58 on the Cron that also had a pull out sofa. The unit was fairly clean, a decent size and the location of the good - close to cafes etc. The... More

The Hotel -- modern, quiet hotel in Franz Josef. We were travelling from Queenstown to Westport and wanted a stop along the way; the stop had to allow us to take an afternoon flight onto a glacier (which we reserved at the Fox Glacier). The bed was comfortable. The room was well equipped. We were asked if we wanted some... More

Generally very pleased with this accommodation. Walking distance to all amenities in Franz Josef village but not on the main road. It’s a small motel complex where you park in front of your unit. The room we had was a good size, well decorated and modern with a small kitchenette. There are BBQ areas and you are encouraged to self-cater.... More

We loved staying at 58 on Cron. We ended up putting the three kids in a one bedroom unit while we took the King studio. The property is well maintained, clean, and up to date. It's an easy walk from the property to the main center of the town. Also, directly across the street is the hot pools and activity... More
