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.

We stayed at Franz Joseph Oasis for 3 nights in the NZL winter, to enable us to explore the beautiful location. And we were certainly not disappointed, ranking as a highlight of our 2 weeks on the South Island.

Room size and quality was very good. Lots of space, a fireplace (albeit electric) kept the room very warm, great outlook across some gardens and serviced daily and very clean. Added bonuses of parking close to the door of the room, on-site self-service laundry as a huge plus for travellers and the opportunity to visit the gallery on-site (we liked the images so much we also purchased a book as a memento of our stay). Location, whilst outside of the town, was still only 5-10 minutes by car and enabled that 'oasis' feel by not being stuck in the small village with everyone else, so a definite plus if you have a car.

Breakfast each morning was fresh and plentiful, tasty and a great start to the day. We also chose to eat one night on-site for dinner - it was by far the best meal we ate on our journey, and although the property did provide some recommendations for dining in the town which we tried, we wish we had of eaten on-site every night.

Perhaps the big defining difference of the property was Martin, our host. At all times was he attentive, helpful, friendly - all without being over the top or impacting on our stay. No question or request was too difficult and he had a calm demeanour, everything done without any fuss and with a smile. He is truly an asset to the property and huge thanks from us to him for everything he did to make our stay a special and memorable one. All other staff were great too, although our interaction with them was limited.

If you have a choice of property in the area, make it this one. We cannot recommend highly enough and would return in a heartbeat if we make it back to explore some more.
