A brilliant little motel which is superbly run. Owners could not be more helpful and the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Plenty of parking available (outside rooms) and not far from anything in Franz Josef itself.

We drove from Blenheim to Franz Josef in a day and was expecting to arrive after 8pm, (this is when reception closes). I rang ahead to advised this and was greeted by a super friendly receptionist who advised that this would not be a problem and instructions will be left on the door when we arrived. We actually arrived at... More

Staying in a two bedroom apartment the room size was great. 50 Channels to chose from, internet access and great service from the staff. After our stay we were very shocked on how affordable this motel was compared to the other places we have stayed in... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of July. Great location opposite glacier hot springs in the lovely village of Franz Josef. our 2 bedroom unit was clean, quiet, comfortable and warm, with all the necessary kitchen facilities. Good value.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and were very happy. The rooms were clean, well appointed and spacious. Staff were friendly and helpful. The motel is in a great location. There was plenty of parking and enough heating to keep us warm on a cold winters night.

We stayed with friends from England for 2 days in February The motel is situated off the main highway, just one back from the township of Franz Josef which made for a very quiet and peaceful break. The hot pools are directly across the road as well, which were great to relax in after a day of exploring the beautiful... More

Would have given it a 5 stars rating if the bed wasn't that soft. Those who prefer a softer bed would have liked this motel. The room was nicely done up and a major plus point when you are having a number of luggages is able to drive up to your doorway and park right outside it. The motel was... More

We only overnighted here between Nelson and Wanaka but this was a lovely little motel. Ann was very friendly in recommending places to eat and things to see while we were in town. We had some nasty weather whilst we were there and she kindly looked up road conditions before we checked out. Very thoughtful. Lots of free DVDs to... More

Very good place for a night or two when visiting Franz Josef. Motel is quite new and modern, not run-down like a lot of the others in FJ. Room was immaculately clean and well equipped with TV, SkyTV, kitchenette with sufficient hardware to make your own small meals. Bathroom was excellent and clean. HOT water with heaps of pressure. Good... More
