We (2 adults, 12 and 10 yr old) stayed in a two bed unit for two nights. The location was good and the unit very modern. The kitchen was OK - we discovered 'half oven' means grill only (you can grill a pizza!). Laundry was a bit more expensive than expected as drier took 3 goes instead 1 to get... More

Very clean and tidy. Initially we only planned to stay one night, but on waking we decided to stay another day. Staff were great and squeezed us in. Fantastic location - right across from the pools and near King Tiger restaurant, both a must-do on Franz Josef

Close to the centre. Five minute walk. Rooms very comfortable. Staff very helpful at all times. We stayed 2 nights. Franz Joseph is a fantastic place to stay to do helicopter rides, kayaking and quad biking.

Having toured New Zealand for a month this was a budget motel that we stayed in for two nights. Our accommodation had two bedrooms, a shower room with toilet and living area with kitchen. The accommodation was basic, we arrived on a cold Winter afternoon and found all the windows open hence the accommodation was rather cold. Windows closed and... More

Clean and tidy, nice neutral decor, good cooking facilities, warm, lovely view of the mountains, handy to hot pools and restaurants. Good reception service and option for borrowing towels for hot pools. The heater was put on to make the unit warm before my arrival on winter evening. I would definitely recommend. The only negatives - I could only reliably... More

The rooms are large and warm and the beds are comfortable. The view from the front of the units is to die for and its right across the road from the centre where you can organise your adventure trios. Only a couple of minutes walk to town. Highly recommend for comfortable affordable accommodation.
