From the start, Mel had our room waiting, with heater on. Great facilities. High pressure shower. Kitchen was well equipped.
The bed was the right softness, rather than the granite like beds we had slept on in 7 previous motels.
A short drive to the Glacier walk, which is as little as a 30 minute walk.
We walked halfway up the track, but were happy to view the glacier area, without walking the whole way,

Room tip: Well worth the booking!

Such a wonderful place to spend time in Franz Josef. The city is small enough to be able to walk to all restaurants and shops. Aspen Court is not right in the middle of town so it is quiet and feels removed from people and noise. Susan greeted us warmly and shared information about restaurants in town. All of her recommendations were fantastic. The 4 of had a two bedroom unit which was spacious, clean and well appointed with coffee, tea and even cookies. There was sufficient room for suitcases in the bedrooms, leaving room to relax in the living room and have wine around the dining table. Beautiful location and beautiful people.

Aspen Court is a very neat series of rooms on the edge of Franz Josef. It is well appointed and modern in the rooms with everything we needed for the time we spent there relaxing after touring the glacier. Thoroughly recommend this hotel. It is in close proximity to the town information centre, hot pools and a number of eating/drinking venues.

Modern and clean motel with everything you need! We had a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend. Located right opposite the I site, hot pools and centre for glacier hikes. Had all the nice little touches including toiletries, biscuits and fresh milk which is always what we check for! Thanks for a great stay.

I have stayed all over the world but nothing beats this place. It is located in the same strip as all the other accommodation in Franz Josef, so no issues there. It's almost directly across the road from the hot pools, which was a great place to visit. Check in lady was super friendly and gave me a map with some advice on walks. Later in the evening the guy at reception was lovely and gave us some extra milk for our morning coffee because our 2 year old drank all the original milk they had left for us. The room was immaculately clean - clean enough that you could have your little ones on the floor with no worries. It's a cold place, and we found the room to be sufficiently warm for us. The bathroom was perfectly clean and we had plenty of towels for all 4 of us, which I've found to be an issue with many other hotels. The heated towel rail was good. You can walk to the shops easily and there is tourist information at the hot pools. We didn't use the laundry here but we could see that there was one. When we return to Franz Josef we will definitely stay here. Excellent value and I can't fault anything.
