We had a lovely stay at The Terrace, Franz Josef Glacier. The room was recently refurbished and was great. Modern decor with a huge bathroom. All that we needed was provided. Free wifi was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good place to stay and value for money.

Leaving Queenstown for a 4.5 hours drive towards Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier. If you've time, stop by Arrowntown on the way out of Queenstown. We stopped at Fox Glacier to walk into the glacier viewing area. Can't see much of the glacier (frozen lake from hundreds of years ago that remains frozen though it has retreated) from the ground. It seems a helicopter ride is the best way to view the glacier. Fox Glacier town is really small so we were glad we booked to stay in Franz Josef Glacier which was a 15-20mins drive away. As we used booking.com, we didn't have a lot of choices for Franz Josef but I saw that NZ'S own Scenic and Heartland hotel chains are here. Terrace Motel was not too bad. We had a 2 bedroom apartment - a sofa, dining table & fully equipped kitchenette in the living/dining, 1 room with a queen bed and 2nd bedroom with 2 single beds & 1 bathroom for about NZD200 a night. It's small but clean with towels provided. We used our own toiletries instead of the all-in-one soap dispenser in the shower. Car can be parked right at the back entrance, very convenient especially in the cold. Best of all, there's free unlimited wifi access. No laundry facilities in-room though. The area is mainly lodges and motels but they're neat and clean.

In comparison to the other motels we stayed at during our visit to NZ, the Terrace Motel was distinctly average. Clean room. However, good value compared to other motels in this expensive tourist resort.

Logan was so helpful! Our glacier tour was canceled due to weather and he helped set up another tour! Place was very clean and comfortable:) big rooms as well and great shower pressure! Enjoyed our stay, especially for the price. Again, Logan checked in and made sure things were ok- thought that was a very nice gesture and explained the small area very well. Made our decisions on what to do very easy!
