We stayed 3 nights in May,arrived late after our drive from Stewart Island. Second day poured with rain but still managed to walk around the Village. Lovely views of the mountains and Croz glacier once weather cleared. We had the studio with mountain views and kitchen, large unit, neat and tidy. A great motel, friendly staff and owner. The only gripe was the dish wash detergent was not refilled, in spite of us leaving it on the bench - surely a good hint??

Meet by very friend staff, room was comfortable. Very clean and a nice space. Mountains were in the back - amazing view. Very handy to restaurants and activities. Restaurant was just next door and town just down road.

It is a quaint, nice place nestled amongst hills in the cute, little town of Franz Josef. Decently sized rooms with all the amenities that you could hope for. A walking distance from hot pools, glacier valley, eateries and supermarket. It also provides enough parking space for your vehicle with the fuel station nearby. The motel also provides discounts and coupons for some quick bites and fine dining nearby. We also got free scones one evening by the motel guys! Simply loved our stay there.

Excellent and courteous service, spacious room and superb top quality new kitchen and bathroom. Very clean and well presented throughout. Handy location, as for anywhere in Franz. Can recommend to anyone staying down the West coast.
We have no connection with The Terrace except as happy customers.

Room tip: All fairly equal, very quiet street.

The Terrace Motel is centrally located in this tiny town. We chose the Mountain View studio room, which was large and modern. The king size bed was very comfortable. There is also a single bed in the room. Very clean. The view of the mountain was hidden by cloud in the evening but lovely the next morning.
