Fantastic friendly staff, modern and clean, spacious room with hob, microwave, kettle, toaster etc...a really lovely little cul de sac style place...loved it and would return for sure.Make sure you go to the pools opposite.

We spent two nights here on a driving trip around the south island. The service at reception was great, very friendly. We arrived late and our room was nice and warm. We were hungry too and given vouchers to a local restaurant (which was just delicious too). The price was awesome, we weren't expecting much as it was much cheaper than all our other accommodation in NZ, but the room is fresh, comfortable, clean and quiet. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Was a good Motel we stayed in . Good value for money and the hosts are nice. My wife and I have good time in little town of Franz Josef. This motel is just across the road of the hot pool which is a bonus. But it was also just next door of noisy backpacker building but didn't worry us at all - so tired we just slept all through the night.

Travelling with 2 grown up children you want plenty of room and this place has it. The owners are very helpful and can't do enough to ensure your stay is enjoyable. We had the very end suite Room 12 and stayed only one night ( 9th July 2012 ). The suite was comfortable, roomy and very clean. The only down fall is that we couldn't stay longer. You can walk to town, restaurants and tourists kiosks if you wish. Comfortable beds and warm and cosy. Certainly recommend it. However no Free Wifi but you can get it downtown.

Room Tip: Ask for room 12

This hotel is FANTASTIC!!!! I wasn’t expecting much because we were travelling on a budget and the room wasn’t expensive, but wow was I surprised. The rooms appeared to have been recently renovated, they even had a kitchen with a microwave and little stove top. The room was large and spotless. It is in a good location and right across the road from the hot pools!!! If you’re looking for a place to stay in Franz joseph or fox this is the place to stay, fantastic value for money!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 and it was fantastic!

Best value for money in Franz Josef! Across the road from the hot pools and close to the city centre, this motel has cooking facilities in room; it is modern and has a great location. Free DVD rentals from the front desk. Vouchers and discount for town restaurants and activities upon arrival. Close to glaciers. This is the only place to stay in Franz!

Stayed here one night whilst driving round the south island. We rocked up with no booking and got a double room. It is right opposite the thermal springs and only a few minutes to the restaurants. The friendly owner gave us a warm welcome and a helpful map with all the walks and restaurants on it. She also gave us a free wifi voucher. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. There was a nice tv and tea/coffee facilities. It warmed up nicely with the heater on. The bathroom was modern and spotless. Recommended.
