Stayed two nights. Room clean, well equipped, modern decor and fittings and comfortable and they even supply big umbrellas for those rainy days (quite a few in FJ). In quiet location yet only a few minutes walk to the main restaurants and bars. Just across the road from the Glacier pools so easy to walk back to your room in... More

Everything you could ask for in a motel. Welcomed with a smile, the room was clean, tidy and spacious. The king size bed was extremely comfy. A short stroll to all amenities and right across the road from the glacier hot springs.

The property seemed new - everything nice and clean. Some of the windows have screens - which is a requirement for me in sandfly country (I don't know how some hotels think it's acceptable to go without screens). There was also a small fan in the room, which was nice for ventilation. They say unlimited wifi, but it's in 100mg... More

A short stroll outside of the town's hub is 58 on Cron. The hosts present a warm welcome, the rooms are fully equipped with all the mods and cons. They have a modern, spacious and comfortable feel. They are extremely well-maintained. Step outside any of their rooms and you are looking at the glacier. Pubs/bars/restaurants,shops all within 5 minutes walk.... More

We spent 2 nights in one of the "Spa Studio" rooms at 58 on Cron in February, 2015. Our room was clean, the king-sized bed comfortable, staff courteous, and the location was convenient for walking to the village shops, restaurants, bars. One of the hot pools was just across the street. It is a simple but very functional place to... More

This motel is in a great location within the town and we were made to feel very welcome by the lady that greeted us on reception when we arrived (and also later from Patches the resident cat). Spotlessly clean and tidy with space to sit outside the front of the room and within easy walking distance of good restaurants and... More

Have just spent 2 nights here, spotlessly clean, equipped with everything you could need. Free unlimited wifi, Sky tv. The owner was very helpful about local restaurants and helped us organise a helicopter flight onto the glacier. A quiet motel but an easy walk to the centre and opposite the hot springs.

We stayed there one night in February. Very clean, bright rooms. Great location across from the Glacier Hot Pools and close to nearby restaurants. Although the staff is helpful it's sometimes a bit too much. As about a restaurant and you will get a full review of every restaurant in town. Overall good spot.

The host, Anne, was kind and helpful in assuring that we didn't miss a thing on our journey north after a lovely stay! Our suite with kitchenette and jetted-tub was attractive, spacious and airy. The hot spa pool are located across the street, yet this is quiet location. The Chinese restaurant next door was outstanding, one of our best meals!... More
