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

The host Ms Ann was very friendly and helpful. For those travelers who is traveled by intercity coach, this is the most convenience place to stay as one of the coach captain is the husband of the host. With her assistance the coach dropped off and picked up us at the Motel instead of the main bus stop of Franz... More

My family and I spent 2 nights here to see the glaciers. Staff we're friendly and helpful. Our room was perfect for the 4 of us - clean, warm, across the road from the thermal pools! Easy walk/drive to restaurants, shops, wilderness centre. Would highly recommend.

We arrived into Franz Josef pretty early and they were still cleaning all of the rooms, but the owner let us park right next to our room, as we were walking into town for a Glacier Hike. This is a great location and the room was very clean and spacious. I would recommend this to anyone staying in this area.

We stayed at this motel in a studio unit for one night. We had'nt pre booked just rocked on up and booked in. Cheap, directly across from the hot pools, (of which we got a discount for staying here). Unit was spacious, clean and warm. The young lady at the reception could not have been more helpful. If we are... More

We stayed here for two nights in a studio unit. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Sited across from the hot pools and off the road, so nice and quiet. The ladies we spoke to at reception were very friendly and helpful. Although we went in the summer, we still had yuk weather, so we welcomed the DVDs which... More

We have arrived at the motel on Christmas eve in the afternoon. Quickly checked in. Helped us to book the last available evening slot for Glacier Hot Pools right across the hotel at a discount. The room was quite modern with good furnishings. Despite being in a busy time the room was quite. This being a typical motel with a... More

Our fav place to stay "Oasis" was priced above and beyond compared to our last stay so we thought we would travel into Franz and see what was available. We had stayed here at 58 a couple of years ago so thought we would see if they had any rooms available, and they did! The service was very friendly and... More

The Good : - Its a walking distance to the "town" area where you can shop nice souvenirs, supermarket, bakery and several eateries. - Able to rent DVDs from reception. - The ladies in the reception are the sweetest darlings you can ever meet. The Bad : - There is no lock at the toilet door. "Awkward" if caught with... More

Overall a very favourable impression of the facilities and the service provided here. We booked on the in house web site a 2night stay (minor discount for 2 days) in a 1 bedroomed unit and when arrived were given unit 15, though I dont think it particularly matters as there isnt really a more favourable view or sunset orientation (see...
