My friend and I stayed here and it was such an amazing experience! The staff were beyond helpful with things to do around Franz and when we were asking about it drive further south! The cabins were super clean and modern and in a perfect location with just a short stroll to town! Thanks to the staff for a great...

We stayed for two nights during our South Island tour, in the 3-bedroom cottage. It was very well equipped, everything was very clean and well maintained. We could appreciate the modernisations that had been made throughout. The cottage was so big and we thoroughly enjoyed having a scone at 6pm ... what a treat! I think the best part was...

The reception staff here were lovely and welcoming and gave us lots of information for our stay in Franz Josef as well as for our drive up the coast once we left. The room was warm, clean and cosy - comfortable bed. There was a microwave in the kitchenette, but no hob or hotplate to cook on.

Hi Janetto160 Thanks you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy you read you enjoyed our location.

We stayed at many apartment motels during a month in New Zealand. The very worst was 10 Cottages at Franz Joseph. The huts were poorly equipped with cooking equipment, they were packed so closely together that the whole site felt cramped and visitors were forced to look directly into each other's "cottages" or else live with the curtains drawn both...

My husband and I stayed here two nights, and it was nice and comfortable. The only problem we had was the shower; water would leak out and soak the bathroom floor. The location is perfect, hikes starting just behind the cottages and the main town a 2 minute walk away. We stayed here over Christmas and the owners hosted all...

We were delighted with our choice- there are a lot of places to stay in Franz Josef but we were pleased we chose 10 Cottages. Each cabin has an allocated parking space. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, there was a well equipped kitchen although we only used the kettle and fridge, and the bathroom was spacious...

Well equipped standalone cottage ('mobile home-type') close to shops and restaurants. Very clean. Comfy bed.

Our Cottage was very clean comfortable and well presented, but had thin walls and ceiling which accentuated the noise of the constant rain we had for our 3 day stay. It is close to the main town and restaurants.
