It is possible that these guys need to update their website photos as I was a little underwhelmed when I did my research. When I got there, it was all good. Everything's spick and span.. Equal to any international hotel/motel for such a small town. Happy girl on front desk was all darl, love and Hun. I'm cool with that... More

Very helpful staff and amazing views. The accommodation was very spacious and had everything we needed. Opposite the glacier pools and glacier guides centre. We stayed for 2 nights (29/30July) and loved it.

Only a brief overnight stop here whilst touring South Island but was great. Lovely receptionist who couldn't have been more helpful, especially after a long drive. Comfy, spacious and well equipped unit and the kids loved it too. Handy for walk into town for our helicopter flight. Highly recommended

On arrival the receptionist could not have been more helpful, she was a credit to the motel. Quick walk into town. Great place to stay if you want to take a helicopter flight (which we did) We would certainly recommend this motel

We stayed here for 3 nights and got in a little late the first night. The woman at the front desk was super helpful and suggested activities and restaurants to go to, including which hike was the best to the Franz Josef Glacier. The rooms was clean and very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The whole place was a... More

Just an overnight stop hear but a very enjoyable one. We had a two bedroom apartment which was comfortable and clean. Staff friendly and free wifi! Freezing cold with a howling wind outside but we were lovely and cosy!

We were in NZ for the month of February 2015, and stayed here for 3 nights. This was one of our favorite places. It is a motel in a great little village, but the staff here were so warm and helpful, it made our stay more special. First, I loved the location, directly across the street from the hot pools,...

From the warm and friendly welcome to the great rooms with big comfy beds we cannot speak highly enough of this place. We spent 5 weeks in the South Island and this place was by far the best we stayed at on our tight budget. The Motel is very close to everything and if your up for it jump out... More

Second year that we have stayed at 58 on Cron with our group of 16 Canadian university students and each time we get treated very well. Rooms were all made up with maps and internet codes waiting on the tables - so nice after a long day on driving. The upgrade for my husband and myself this year was very... More

Clean, tidy, decent sized rooms with required facilities and comfortable beds, walkable to many locations. We were relying on public transport luckily we had intercity coach drop off and pick up from this motel. Owner was friendly and approachable.
