Good motel apartment style accommodation - clean bathroom, good little kitchenette, comfy bed with electric blankets if you were cold (and I imagine in winter they would be essential) , unfortunately the overpowering plug in air freshener just about choked me for the first couple of hours - I tracked it down and put it outside and the smell settled. Blissfully quiet at night too!

Franz Josef itself is a small place, with everything close by. The Terrace Motel is a superb place to stay, right in the middle from eateries, the bus stop and helicopter rides.
Stayed for 2 nights, in room 17- spotlessly clean, amazingly warm, equipped with electric blankets too!
we had a nice kitchenette, equipped with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, microwave and all essential utensils,. The breakfast supplies meant for one day, for the 3 of us, actually lasted 2 days! Inspite of being on the road, there's hardly any traffic, so no question of any noise. Great wifi too!
Very helpful staff, and in typical kiwi fashion, superbly helpful and friendly bunch :)
Loved it!

We loved this motel and has a room and a two bed apartment between the six of us. Location was excellent. We eat at the Alice May next door and received a 10% discount as well as discounts for many of the other attractions in FJ. We only stayed one night but made good use of the on site laundry and washing line. The staff were really nice and friendly and there was unlimited wifi.

We hiked up to the glacier and it was worth the walk.

I would highly recommend this motel.

Over all for the facilities is good , clean and meet the standard. location is located in middle of town and very easy to find it. Unfortunately, we face with the smell of indian curry , which it is very terrible smell and made everything very upset for us . However the manager help us to solve the issue by opened another new room for us ( we are Five persons , and one of us had to sleep in the living room )
For all of your view , please check for the smell first whether it is exit or not ( our room is no 12) it's a caution.

Only spent a night in Franz Josef but glad I booked The Terrace Motel. Clean, spacious and modern room. Sadly weather did not cooperate and allow me to enjoy the glacier but the motel is steps away from the rowi kiwis at the West Coast Wildlife Centre and quality dining and shopping in the small town. Staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Highly recommended!
