Loved staying here, it was clean, spacious and the beds were comfortable. Felt very welcomed on arrival by Allan and the team who were friendly and helpful, giving us lots of information about options in Franz Josef. View of mountain from our window extra special. Would definitely stay here again.
Place is in a great locaation TA No1 rated restaurant right next door, easy walking distance to several bars and 4 square supermarket. It is also set up for motor homes and backpackers so has good laundry facilities. Room was good, clean good facilities fridge, microwave etc. Would not hesitate to stay here again location pushes it to 5*.
We booked a king studio as we were only staying 1 night. I wished we had stayed longer as this is a perfect stopover on the West Coast. We had a spacious room with a comfortable bed and the bathroom looked brand new it was so clean! Parking outside our room a bonus and a short walk to the village. The area was really quiet and was nice listening to birdsong in the morning and looking at the amazing scenery. Probably helped that we had perfect weather! The owner was friendly and gave us a voucher for the neighbouring restaurant (Alice May) which was great for dining. Would definitely like to go back for longer!
We booked a two bedroom apartment for two adults and two children on a two night special. The apartment was extremely clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Of note the shower was really awesome with great pressure. The welcome we received was very warm and welcoming. Just 5 minutes walk away we found glow worms which were a highlight of our children's stay. We would definitely stay again if on the coast and would highly recommend this motel! Thanks Alan and team for your hospitality, most appreciated.
Absolutely lovely well presented Motel and so close to all the amenities the town has to offer. We were invited to look at several rooms which was very kind, very helpful staff member, she was just delightful. Room was very quiet on the whole quite clean and tidy, little mould on top of the sink in the bathroom against the wall but everything else was great. Except ... the bed, it was sooo hard!!! Could have had a better nights sleep on the floor, thought is was just me but hubby also tossed and turned all night and shared my sentiments in the morning. What a lovely little town that is feeling the affects of no tourism
Super place to stay. So clean & spacious. Bed very comfortable. Parking at front door. Bit of paradise here, birds singing, mountain views. Super lovely helpful young lady at front desk, she even offered to help carry our bags into room. Lovely restaurant right next door.
We stayed 3 nights in May,arrived late after our drive from Stewart Island. Second day poured with rain but still managed to walk around the Village. Lovely views of the mountains and Croz glacier once weather cleared. We had the studio with mountain views and kitchen, large unit, neat and tidy. A great motel, friendly staff and owner. The only gripe was the dish wash detergent was not refilled, in spite of us leaving it on the bench - surely a good hint??
Meet by very friend staff, room was comfortable. Very clean and a nice space. Mountains were in the back - amazing view. Very handy to restaurants and activities. Restaurant was just next door and town just down road.
It is a quaint, nice place nestled amongst hills in the cute, little town of Franz Josef. Decently sized rooms with all the amenities that you could hope for. A walking distance from hot pools, glacier valley, eateries and supermarket. It also provides enough parking space for your vehicle with the fuel station nearby. The motel also provides discounts and coupons for some quick bites and fine dining nearby. We also got free scones one evening by the motel guys! Simply loved our stay there.
Excellent and courteous service, spacious room and superb top quality new kitchen and bathroom. Very clean and well presented throughout. Handy location, as for anywhere in Franz. Can recommend to anyone staying down the West coast. We have no connection with The Terrace except as happy customers.
