We were a party of 5 (Mum and 4 girls) staying early May. The lovely husband and wife couple at the front went beyond the call of duty and organised a fabulous trip for us. We told them that we missed out on a flight from Queenstown to Milford Sounds due to bad weather. I asked was there flights from Franz Josef and within half an hour they had flight times and cost all worked out for us. They rescheduled our morning Glazier flight and forwarding accommodation and organised and extended stay so we could fit it all in. Thank you to Ann and hubby for making our stay in NZ very specious, what great service. The rooms were great too, very clean and comfortable and quiet. Thanks again for everything. Kate & family from Australia

Room Tip: Room at the end at the back was a great family room

Dear Kate & Family,
It was our pleasure to help you with getting to see Milford sound .It is a very beautiful part of our country and to get to see from Franz Josef to it adds in extra beautiful scenery.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip up the West coast.
Kind regards
Anne & Richard

This is really a great place to stay. The service was friendly and excellent, the rooms very modern, attractive and fully equipped. Located in walking distance to anything that you need and the hot pools right across the road. I was only here for the one night, but I really enjoyed my shower and the very clean, modern facilities. Had dinner at the Alice May Restaurant - HIGHLY RECOMMEND - great food and service and the best sticky date pudding I have had in a long time. Can't fault a thing about this motel, and highly recommend it - I also got a very excellent rate!

Stayed two nights, found the motel very attractive, new, comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly. Located close to restaurants plus very close to the glacier. Not far from fox glacier. Ate at the Alice May restaurant.

We had stayed atthis motel for two nights ...Although the room was neat and clean with modern furnishings but this was the only motel where I didnt get blackout curtains amongst all motels /Apartments we have stayed in New Zealand ..This was the only motel with very less number of cooking utensil ..Actually different people have different requirements for cooking food but I didnt like the provision of only two cooking utensils..When you stay at number of motels , you tend to compare ....This was the only motel where we got 50 Mb per day as complimentary wifi ..At all other motels we have got atleast 100 MB complimentary wifi or free ..We had requested at receptionfor another cooking utensil but we didnt get any ...

My family (parents, 2 children, and myself) stayed on night in March, and found the motel attractive, comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. The staff were friendly, and it's just a short walk to restaurants, plus very close to the glacier. We didn't try the spa across the street, but it would have been cool to have it that close if we'd had time. And oh my goodness, the sunrise in the morning was one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen anywhere in the world!

We stayed there just one night, but was really nice. We were upgraded to and studio with onsite spa. The unit was really new, with a gorgeous and spotless bathroom. Our bed was huge and comfortable. We also had a completely equipped kitchen and free WiFi (up to 50Mb or so). Since we were really exhausted because of our trip that day, we ask for a DVD from the selection they have in reception to provide customers (for free). The only problem we found is the flat TV set was really small (or the room too big). Anyway, we would repeat for sure. Good value.

58 On Cron was easy and functional yet comfortable. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful.
The 2 bedroom unit is perfect for a family for a night or two. The facilities were good to a little self catering and easy to get to the local stores and restaurants.
