Excellent motel - spotless inside, great well-equipped little kitchen, very helpful owners, DVDs to borrow, stylish furnishings, towels to take to the pools and a great location opposite the springs. Loved it.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during August. The interior looked newer and everything was very clean. The owner we met during check-in was very friendly and gave us a pass for some free internet time. We also received coupons to local restaurants; there are also DVDs you can borrow. The rooms have a small kitchen area which came in handy. The large room stayed nice and warm during the cold nights. Walking to the place where the grocery store and tour buildings are took less than 5 minutes. The surrounding view was very beautiful and there are nice hikes nearby. The hot pools across the street are so fun- I’d highly recommend going to relax for a little (there was only 2 other people there when we were so I don’t know if it gets very crowded other times). We did laundry at the motel one night and that was cheap and fast. We had a great stay and I wouldn’t hesitate to book here again!

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!
