The Good : - Its a walking distance to the "town" area where you can shop nice souvenirs, supermarket, bakery and several eateries. - Able to rent DVDs from reception. - The ladies in the reception are the sweetest darlings you can ever meet. The Bad : - There is no lock at the toilet door. "Awkward" if caught with... More

We booked on the in house web site a 2night stay (minor discount for 2 days) in a 1 bedroomed unit and when arrived were given unit 15, though I dont think it particularly matters as there isnt really a more favourable view or sunset orientation (see...

Lovely large room with an extra bedroom. Nice kitchenette. Good bath. No complaints. Weather was bad so we watched movies which the management provided. That was nice because we were feeling down since we couldn't hike the glacier.

We had 2 nights here, very warm welcome on arrival and were shown to our lovely unit. The place was fantastic. A huge room, very clean, tidy and well kept. Two minutes walk from the Main Street (like everywhere in Franz Josef!) but very quiet. Lots of info from the owner about what to do, where everything is in town,... More

We arrived the day after the storms caused by Cyclone Ita - having pre - booked a 5-day stay. Despite there being no power for a day or two, we cannot fault the welcome, hospitality received, or efforts to create some sort of normality at what was a very challenging time. Once power returned we enjoyed a superb stay in... More

Sadly due to Cyclone Ita we could only get to stay one night. Despite the power being out our hosts went out of their way to get hot showers, fresh milk and hit water for a cup of tea. Hope the town and region are back in order soon..An ideal place to stay between Glaciers.

We loved this motel. It has a modern style and furniture, very clean, and comfortable. Great sleep quality. It is not right on the main road, keeping it away from traffic, but still right in the middle of the township, across the hot springs. Friendly people at the reception and a great BBQ place! We will definitely be back.

The best part about this motel's location is that the hot pools are right across it. We stayed for 2 nights and since we couldnt go out due to rains, we spent most of the time in the hot pools or in the motel room. The staff was very friendly; they have a huge collection of DVDs that you can... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment was a good size and had everything we needed, it was clean and tidy. The motel is situated on a quiet road a few minutes walk from the central area. There are a few bars/restaurants close to the motel. Would stay here again.

Highly recommended for anyone making the drive along the west coast. Pros: • Clean room • Friendly staff • Quiet • Just a short walk away from the best restaurant in town (Alice May) Cons: • The laundry room opening time is a bit short
