Perhaps it was us and our imagination when we read the word "oasis" and looked at the skillfully taken photographs. However, upon arrival the whole thing was a little bit disappointing. To manage expectations: Franz Josef Oasis is no hotel, it is a motel. At least if the definition of motel is that you park your car in front of your room and you're constantly looking at it through the window. The fireplace outlined in the room description in best travel agent lingo is a built-in fan heater with fancy lighting and the whirlpool bathtub can only cater for one person at a time. For a motel this would be quite okay, but then the prices would need to be adjusted to a motel level as well. We were really looking forward to enjoying a fireplace (even a gas heated one) and a nice soak in the whirlpool, insofar the reality was rather sobering...

Enjoyed our stay but disappointed that we were not told restaurant closed as we booked intending to eat there. We enjoyed breakfast even though choice limited. A bit disappointed in the very small spa bath and the fire which was really just a noisy fan heater. However, the room was very clean and bed very comfortable

A very nice modern motel style hotel with large rooms comfortable beds and good bathrooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. A little way out of town but local restaurants provide taxi services free. A real good find and highly recommended.

We had one night here. The motel is out of town and a little further than we thought but it wasn’t an issue for us. Great staff and lovely room, large, clean and comfortable. We chose to eat dinner in the hotel rather than head back into town and though the menu is small had one of the best burgers ever sitting outside with great views. Breakfast is continental style with fruit and yoghurt etc. Nice quiet place to stay
