I cannot praise our hosts highly enough: Anne especially was wonderful, getting our short time in Franz Josef organised quickly and efficiently, gaining us discounts on activities, and giving valuable guidance on all local matters with warmth and enthusiasm. The motel is a quiet oasis in the small town of Franz Josef, set amid verdant rainforest with views up to the surrounding ridges. We were glad we had chosen to stay at 58 On Cron and not next door at the Rainforest Retreat, which was noisy and busy at all times, and full of tour bus visitors and backpackers. Our room was spacious, well-appointed and very well-maintained, and the facilities were excellent: the shower was amazingly powerful, the complimentary toiletries of good quality, the bed large and comfortable, and the international TV channels welcome. We loved the little seating area outside with its fronds of palm giving us some privacy from the next room. There was a kitchenette in the room, with the provided cooking equipment of a very good standard, and we also had the use of two outdoor barbecues: Anne also provided kitchen foil for us to cook fresh fish on the barbie, along with welcome advice on how best to cook it! Take advantage of the proximity of the Hot Pools, which are right across the road from 58 On Cron, and ask about the special entrance price available to guests. We both really enjoyed our stay at this motel, and will happily return for a longer visit when we get chance.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the proximity of the Hot Pools

Very friendly staff, huge room, really good shower. After a day hiking the glacier 58 on cron was the relaxing night we needed to unwind and recoup for the next days drive to queenstown. Booking a private thermal pool across the road was a fantastic idea too. I would not go throught franz without stopping at this motel.

We had a 2 bedroom unit for 2 couples. Our luggage didn't fit the rooms and space was tight. The rooms were newish, clean and well kept. The cost for our unit was the dearest we had on our entire trip of both islands. Not worth it but heck - what do you do when you are miles from the nearest big town and the competition in this little town can all get to gether and price gouge. We would stay there again because there is little choice.

The reception was excellent and the room clean and spacious. It is well located opposite the spa pools and within easy walking distance of the restaurants etc. The kitchen was equipped well for two and the shower was exceptionally powerful.
Parking is right outside your unit.
