Franz Josef Oasis
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Franz Josef
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2017 via mobile

The Oasis is the first hotel you come to when driving from Greymouth - it is a few minutes drive away from the centre township of Franz Joseph. Please don't drive past! This is a quality hotel. Everything was exceptional from the warm, friendly greeting from our Spanish host, to the wonderful dinner in the restaurant (only a few steps from our room - so we could enjoy some lovely NZ Pinot!). Our room was stylish and comfortable - complete with fireplace. We would definitely stay here again!

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with family

We stayed here while visiting the Frans Josef Glacier and were very happy with our choice. The rooms were very neat, clean and modern. It's a beautiful view all around and easy parking. We also had dinner in the restaurant and could not fault the food or service. Our host was more than accomodating. Highly recommended.

Was a lovely room. The fire is gas decorative fire. It pumps out enough heat, we did not need it overnight.
Bed was really comfortable, big TV and movies. The rooms all had their own access to the car, so is safe and easy for smokers, or an early get away, easy access to get your bag in.

It is about 2 km to the town, a lovely short drive.

Excellent rates.
