I booked this motel prior to travelling to New Zealand and I am glad I did. We arrived in Franz Josef and went on our pre arranged half day glacier walk.
We then came back to the motel which was located just behind the petrol station where the glacier buses drop you off.
Our room was very spacious and clean with everything we could possibly want including the option of free DVD's.
Would recommend staying here as the location is so good, the only slight problem was that our free wifi did not work in the room and we had to sit on the decking to use it. This was not a problem for us but some people may not like it. The weather was quite stormy when we were there and this may have been the reason for the wifi not working. Overall would highly recommend.
