    The best hostel in my life”

    Everything is very close. (since Franz Josef is a very small town.) Reasonable prices. Super clean and tidy room, toilet and shower booth. Not busy, crowded and quiet. Friendly staff. Good facilities including hot spa. 100% recommend this backpacker. Book right now! This is a good chance the God gives to you.

    Great stay but you will need to carry your luggages up the stairs for private room. You can hear noise when people walk past the room or down the stairs. Great for a stopover though. Clean kitchen and nice breakfast.

    We booked a double with shared bathroom but for upgraded to a double with ensuite! Sweet! Heating was adequate for the room but the bathroom gets super cold. We loved the shared kitchen as it was fully equipped - pans, plates, cutlery, pepper and salt, and hot chocolate! Breakfast was great, bread, cereals and spreads provided, with hot coffee and juice. Enjoyed the stay here for sure. Staff was also helpful. Wish we had had more time to use the laundry facilities :p washing powder is available for NZ$1!

    A nice place to stay”

    This was a clean and quiet stay for a couple of nights the only thing that caught us out was the stairs to the first floor (just in case you have a problem with stairs as no lift) I also went to reception to ask for some printing to be done as my dad had passed away and needed to fill in some forms to send back to UK told there would be a charge for this so I declined and got them printed elsewhere for free not the sort of customer service I was expecting.

    A nice backpacker lodge, although the kitchen/living area smeels a bit funny, the room and bathroom are clean. Location is great, just on the back of the main street. Overall it's a good value for what's paid for

    The breakfast which was included was a bonus as we have to set off on our travel quite early in the morning. Not a lot of motels offer free breakfast. Definitely Franz Josef Montrose Lodge is highly recommended.

    Very clean, free breakfast an added bonus”

    We booked 3 double bedrooms with shared bathroom, as those with ensuite were fully booked. Not a big issue as the shared bathrooms and shower rooms are very clean and hardly occupied. There are 2 shared kitchens, those with double/twin rooms enjoy more spacious facilities, with running hot water in the kitchen. Kitchens are cleaned and tea towels changed daily, which is a plus point. There’s also a rice cooker which we found useful

    Very good stay near the Franz Josef Glacier”

    It is a small motel in the town of Franz Josef. There are restaurants and supermarkets nearby so the location is perfect. Guests can use the common kitchen which is very clean and tidy. They also have free cereal and bread for your breakfast. We had our stay here on the 31 Dec 2018 and did the countdown just outside the motel. The experience is great and memorable.

Room had basic amenities, coffee, tea and even small packets of milk provided in the fridge. Apart from the soundproofing, everything else was great.

    Pros- prompt response of receptionist from booking to arrival (we were late to check in but they provided us with proper instructions on an envelope) Bed and room heater (thank god!) Spacious room with private bathroom. Super clean. Room corridors are secured with special access card. Breakfast provided in the kitchen. Cons- nothing at all. It was all perfect!

    The best hostel in New Zealand”

    I have been to Franz Josef twice and I have chosen Montrose as the only place to stay in Franz Josef. With the nice staff, clean bathroom and not expensive at all. I have stayed one night in the dorm. The only problem is the bunk bed is not very comfortable and always made sound when you turn around. With the yummy breakfast and soup at night. I will highly recommend Montrose to my friends.

    Double bedrooms in summer”

    Breakfast is provided. The soup is only for winter. Kitchen and bathrooms are clean. The bedrooms can get noisy at night as people walk past up the stairs or use the bathrooms. Bathrooms are not private - take note. There must be better accommodations in Franz Josef. We just missed out on those. But this place was okay for one night. We had two double bedrooms and room 44 is bigger than room 33 or 34 (can't remember the number but it is the double bedroom on the ground floor).
