We only stayed overnight but this is such a great place to stay. Very clean a nice quite location but close to town. The perfect place to wind down after a long drive. Comfortable beds and comfortable accommodation. You cant go wrong staying here

What a thrill! We lucked in by renting a suite in the corner of the complex by phone as we headed into the Haast Pass. Stunning decor - the mural of the rainforest in the living room is a master stroke and the chartreuse tones in the bedrooms just so perfect. Crisp sheets and super comfortable beds. Wonderful bathroom and a great, well appointed kitchen. The fresh ponga fronds in the bathroom are a divine little touch with the beautiful rainforest just outside the huge windows. Can't recommend this place more highly! Keep up the good work!

After a long journey it was such a surprise to find such a clean and well equipped motel. Very friendly staff. Sorry for the bad rating according the kids activities. However we were not looking for this service. However compared with Palm Resort in Rotorua it is just average.

Room Tip: If you get the chance to choose. Take the higher room numbers. On one hand unfortunately you do not...

Thanks Christine V for your review. Unfortunately not all of our guests can have their own cars parked outside their units. But still lots of parking available. We pride ourselves on being one of the best motels in NZ, and it's great to hear your thoughts on it as well.

We booked on line the day before our arrival with absolutely no problems whatsoever. Stayed only 1 night and the room was very quiet and very clean with very comfortable bed. The water pressure was great which is always a plus. The owners were very pleasant and helpful and is very close to town (within walking distance to restaurants etc.) Would definitely recommend this motel to anyone staying at Franz Josef.

This is I believe a very new motor inn - so very clean, good beds and linens a little kitchen again - we had rooms in the middle of the row of rooms and that did become a tad noisy as people started to come in later in the day- but it was no problem at night for sleeping - just in the afternoon if you want to sit outside. No private balconies on our room (can't say for others). It was a bit far from the rest of town and the major attractions the Franz Josef offices - but we actually did walk from this hotel (end of town) to the Blue Ice Café which is on the other end of town - so it is doable. Across the way from this establishment is a spa - which we walked through it did look very enjoyable. The ferns in the room were a nice touch.

Room Tip: End units are probably preferable.

Hi popsicleCalgary, Yes Aspen Court is at the end of the village, but still only an approx 5 minute walk. And maybe 10 minutes to the Blue Ice. As we're new, we're still working on our outside seating. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in NZ

Positive: Clean rooms with nice bathroom. Good water pressure. At end of road in Franz Josef, but everything is easily accessible. Very nice owners.

Negative: None. This is a very well run small hotel that works great for the location.

We booked online for this hotel and all went well with our booking. The rooms are clean, nice and the bed was very comfortable. Its walking distance to town for dinner and breakfast and easy driving distance to Franz Josef Glacier. The showers were great. I love a hotel with good water pressure. We only stayed one night, but I would have like to have checked out a few more glacier trails and I would easily book this hotel for multiple nights. Its a great little find.
