So glad we found Franz Josef Oasis! Stayed for a night after visiting the glacier while driving up the west coast. We were warmly greeted at check-in by the kindest young woman at the front desk. Our room was spotless clean, cozy warm even in the New Zealand winter, and the bed was super comfortable. Would definitely stay again and recommend for any visitors to Franz Josef.

Spent 2 nights at Franz Josef Oasis in a spa room. Rooms were very comfortable and quiet. Reception staff very welcoming. Motel is about 5 minutes out of Franz Josef but if you have a car it is only a couple of minutes into town centre. This place was real value for money. There is parking on site outside our room. Breakfast is available in the restaurant but we chose to drive into town. Laundry facilities for guests on site

Room tip: The spa rooms were at the back of the property so no road noise at all.

The room was spacious with a gas fireplace and a very good bathroom. The hotel is a little difficult to find as we expected it to be in town but you need to travel about 4kms out to find it, so a car essential. Good place from which to visit both Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. Reception lady very helpful and polite. Cost of accommodation very reasonable. There are not many restaurants in Franz Josef and are somewhat pricy.

A newish complex with large, clean rooms. There is a laundry available, $4 per wash or dry which was very welcome on a long trip.
It is a bit North of town but we didnt mind the drive in for a meal, as we thought the restaurant menu was a bit limited.
Coffee making facilities, wine glasses and a fridge.
A tea towel would have been handy.

Great stopover in this hotel. Amazingly large and well equipped room and bathroom. The fireplace was a great addition to the room. Very friendly welcome from Tracey. We both agreed it was the comfiest bed we have stayed in during our travels through Australia and New Zealand! Definitely book here if you stay in Franz Josef and have a car.
