Lovely setting and super friendly hosts
Nice open setting with parking at unit door and lovely views across to Glacier. 30 minutes walk to town so really need a car but parking is easy in both the motel and in town

All you expect from a family apartment
Clean and well equipped, this spacious 2 bedroom apartment was a good place for us to stop for one night. A pitty we didn't plan to stay longer. Very helpful reception desk.

Peaceful stay just outside Franz Josef
Helpful staff, Updated room, Great location
Very nice stay in recently updated motel units, very helpful staff advised us to see the glacier the evening we arrived as rain was forecast the following day (which came in torrents).
