Granted we had lousy weather. It poured with rain, and their were a number of rooms around us filled by one party who kept walking back and forth past our room making noise and peering in. But aside from that this motel is not one of the better ones we have stayed in. It is pretty basic, and drab. There... More

58 is pretty basic & not too fab if the weather poor, brollies necessary. To be fair, we found some nice bars & restos but the weather was very very inclement! English, even...The system of State Highways somewhat a misnomer...

A motel style hotel. All rooms on the ground floor. The room we had was equiped for the less able. No idea if all the rooms are like this. Ther was a good sized shower room. Beds were very comfortable. Room quite large. There was a good welcome. Very helpful. The heater was a bit noisy.

The motel was comfortable and everything you would need. The staff were really helpful with activities. Frans Josef is about the glacier. It is small. The motel is easy walking distance to reataurants and cafes.

We stayed here for 3 nights.. Anne and Richard were very helpful on email suggesting things to do. The motel is well located, few minutes walk from supermarket and all the attractions --everything is neat and clean, comfortable and convenient. The only point is about the wi-fi- they give you vouchers which run out quickly, then you have to key... More

Stayed for a few nights whilst visiting the glacier as part of a trip around a New Zealand. This motel was one of the best we stayed in. The room was large, free WiFi was available, the layout of the motel meant you aren't too overlooked and the location is great. As a tip if you're staying here avoid the... More

Lovely units close to everything with extremely helpful staff. There are so many channels and you can rent movies too. The rooms are comfortable and the shower had amazing pressure. The hot pools are right across the street and they give you loads of Internet vouchers. Overall a great stay.

The reception staff were cheerful and the rooms were spacious and warm. The shower was large and the water hot... after a long day we collapsed into bed and slept soundly all night. The hotel is conveniently located across from the thermal pools and a short walk to any number of great restaurants. We would definitely return... loved it. Thanks... More
