Reasonably priced accommodation that accommodates a family of 5. Our unit had two bedrooms with a queen in one bedroom, two singles in the other bedroom and a double sofa in the lounge. All beds were very comfortable but the sofa bed was incredibly uncomfortable and shouldn't be considered a bed, it would have been more comfortable sleeping on the... More

We stayed here for 1 night. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. They even let you borrow DVD's free of charge which my kids loved. Would recommend this motel to families.

This motel makes a virtue of being a classic family motor inn, but its owners and staff energetically work to make your visit memorable. And ordinary is soothing: The rooms are the right size, have all the expected facilities, and a neat kitchenette thrown in (please don't cook any curries!) You can drive right up to the door but it's... More

We choose this Motel while on our road trip around the South island. We arrived to be greeted by Alex who told everything we wanted to know about the area, What tours to do, gave discounted entry to the hot pools and booked our table at the blue ice restaurant (which had the added bonus of a hummer limo for...

We stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be quite modern and had a good kitchenette. The motel was situated well in the little township. Everything was walking distance. Reception was helpful with directions and had a range of DVDs to watch should you wish to. I found the WiFi connectivity patchy but not sure if that was... More

Stayed at 58 On Cron for 2 nights in Franz Josef. Could see the glacier in the distance. Just 2 blocks to town with restaurants and shops. Motel style rooms, kitchens, clean and quiet. Laundry on site, a blessing after many days of travel.

Has a nice looking, comfortable and clean setting not very far from so many of nature's variable elements. Comfortable bed. Strong water pressure in the shower. Attentive staff. Handy to other places with food, shopping, walks, glacial views etcetera, and not too expensive given the wonderful location.

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
