A great location for a stop over to see the glaciers. Staff friendly and rooms very clean with comfy beds. This was our 2nd stay. They also deliver fresh baked scones to your room soon after check in. They guide a free glow worm walk each evening. Walk is only 5minutes from hotel.

We were delighted with our room at 10 cottages - super clean and comfortable, great location in Franz Josef, really helpful staff (went out of their way to help return an item we left behind) and the homemade scones brought round in the afternoon were delicious! The cottages are quite tightly packed so don't expect lots of space and privacy...

Upon arrival, after a long drive, when the rain was spitting and the temperature was down, 10 Cottages presented my wife and I with hot freshly baked scones, butter and jam. A really nice welcome. Each cottage is a pretty new, prefab separate building, the size of a large motel room. Ours had a kitchenette with a nice coffee tea...

My friend and I stayed here and it was such an amazing experience! The staff were beyond helpful with things to do around Franz and when we were asking about it drive further south!

We stayed for two nights during our South Island tour, in the 3-bedroom cottage. It was very well equipped, everything was very clean and well maintained. We could appreciate the modernisations that had been made throughout. The cottage was so big and we thoroughly enjoyed having a scone at 6pm ... what a treat! I think the best part was...

The reception staff here were lovely and welcoming and gave us lots of information for our stay in Franz Josef as well as for our drive up the coast once we left. The room was warm, clean and cosy - comfortable bed. There was a microwave in the kitchenette, but no hob or hotplate to cook on.

We stayed at many apartment motels during a month in New Zealand. The very worst was 10 Cottages at Franz Joseph. The huts were poorly equipped with cooking equipment, they were packed so closely together that the whole site felt cramped and visitors were forced to look directly into each other's "cottages" or else live with the curtains drawn both...
