I stopped at this motel as a one night stop over on a business trip to Central Otago where I decided to go down the West Coast instead of the East Coast. I had not stopped at Franz Joseph before and did a drive past of the motels. There were the usual mix of motels with restaurants/bars attached and downwards... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at 58 On Cron while visiting the glacier area. Our host Anne looked after us, and thankfully booked a heli-hike for me minutes after arrival. This was great as the weather was picture perfect, and the next day not as good. Naively I wore the 3 to 4 layers suggested and being a fine... More

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

Central and walking distance to town, very affordable and amazing service from the staff. 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

Really friendly staff, was a pleasure to stay there. New facilities, which are very tidy, though lacking any real character Very clean, neat, tidy and a nice place to lay your head. Wifi was Very slow....

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
