Reviewed yesterday NEW

A quiet, relaxed motel. Situated about 4kms frm Franz Josef township. The insulation and double glazed windows, make it very cosy. The staff were excelent and made me feel welcome. The food in the restaurant was well prepared and presented. The only negative for my stay was that the bed was a bit saggy on one side.

Rooms were clean and modern with a nice bed. The fireplace was there but was actually just a fan heater with fake coals. The bathroom was fine and the room was quite large. The hotel is quite far out of the centre however.

We have just had the most amazing dinner (beef & lamb) and the deluxe king room is great with a spa bath and super king room - all close to Franz Josef township but out of the tourist area so nice and quiet - would definitely stay here again.

We found our room to be luxurious, spotlessly clean, spacious and comfy. The bed was huge and very comfortable. It was quiet and romantic with the pretend 'fire' to light the room. You need a car as a few km out of town. A peaceful oasis.

We stayed here it was a nice little motel not far from the town, we had dinner in their restaurant and it was the best meal we had in New Zealand, we also had the continental breakfast which was also good.

Room was lovely and clean and quiet with comfy beds but wouldn't stay again. There were 17 power points in the room but not one next to a mirror to dry and straighten hair while your other half was using the bathroom (my pet hate). No kitchenette - only a kettle, two cups and glasses, therefore breakfast had to be...

Don't let the "Oasis" part fool you, this is just a gussied up Motel. Way overpriced for what you get. No AC and the "Fireplace" they make such a big deal about is just a "faux" on the wall heater with fake flames. To get to many of the rooms you have to walk right past the walls of windows...

We enjoyed a night of luxury at the Franz Josef Oasis after a week of camping. The fluffy towels, comfortable bed and bath were AMAZING. Our Spanish receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. The rural setting just out of town was lovely. The room was huge and very luxurious. A real treat. Highly recommend.

Stayed here for a night while visiting the glacier and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the rooms. They have gone above and beyond to make sure travelers have all of the little conveniences, ever putting a fan in the storage unit at the foot of the bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel is...

I only spent one night at Oasis but it was worth the extra money and effort (I didn't have a car) to be there because it's stunning, serene and the nicest place I've stayed in NZ. They let me check in early which was nice because I got up early for the glacier walk and upgraded me to a larger...
