          Great stay but strange smellIt was a great motel with big space in the room. Most of the facilities we needed were available for us. Centrally localised and close to restaurants and supermarkets. The only thing was that the room had this very strong smell that we could not take it. We stayed here for 2 nights and the smell persisted even though we kept the windows open for ventilation. We have a few insect bites as well, but we can't confirm if it was from the bed or it was from mossies/sandflies. Other than that, the stay was great. We got upgraded to the king's room when the staff found out that we were on our honeymoon :)

          Last minute deal, neat tidy rooms, very central”

          Managed to book only a few weeks out when everything else was booked out, perhaps I scored a last minute cancellaton but the price was still reasonable. The check in was easy enough, although they had run out of milk (love that you get fresh milk, not UHT) and said they would bring later. The milk never arrived so had to go get it in the morning which was a bit annoying. Rooms were nicely maintained and had everything you need for a short stay. You cant really keep you blind/curtain open as its all glass and people are walking past to other rooms. Felt it was good value for the glacier area and would stay again.

          Clean, tidy and worth a stay! ”

          Having been told that Franz-Joseph was a tourist trap I was pleasantly surprised by this place. It wasn’t cheap but then it was the same price as hokitika and nicer. Clean. Only draw back is lighting. No bright ceiling lights only reading lights really. I dropped a star off service purely as there was no one to greet us and only saw staff the next day, in saying that didn’t need to as they left key in the door and a note to this effect on the window. Good thing I don’t mind my name on display.

Heater provides the warmth we need on the rainy days we were there. Awesome! Staff at the reception were nice and friendly too.

          Stayed here 1 night for holiday. Greeted by a the host/reception and he was very kind, detail and thorough in explaining everything about Franz Josef. The hotel is behind a Mobil petrol station, and walking distance to anywhere in Franz Josef. The room is spacious, clean, and equipped with cooking utensil, dishes and everything you need for a good night stay. Good value for money in the middle of Franz Josef area. Nothing to complain, keep up the good work!

          We had booked a King Family Studio and a Queen Studio, and on arrival the reception upgraded us to two King Family Studios so we could be right next to each other. That was really kind. The rooms looked and felt new from the bathroom to the kettle and everything in the kitchenette. And the heaters in the rooms were great too, in winter. The location of this hotel can't be better - walkable to the grocery store and eating places . We had a lovely stay. Would definitely recommend the place.

          The Motel was very cozy & spacious and the amenities were great. It’s located near everywhere in town and you could get a view of the peaks from the balcony or outside your room. Overall the Motel was above average, it could be excellent if only the bed was not so soft and the bathroom did not have that slight sewer smell. I would still recommend this Motel to anyone visiting Franz Josef!

          located 5 mins drive from airport, you can see the runway from the motel. Complimentary shuttle provided for pickup from airport. Checkin was quick and hassle free. Our two-room apartment was clean though not very big it was able to fit 3 adults and 1 child with 4 big luggages. There is 'The warehouse' nearby to buy food supplies. No aircon so it might get stuffy and hot during summer. We came during Autumn so it was cool during the nights.
