Comfortable room located close to restaurants etc

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Mar 2024
We stayed 2 nights as part of our NZ south island tour. We had a warm and friendly welcome an our room was simple but comfortable. It's easy to walk from the motel to the shops and restaurants and start points for various activities. Continental breakfast cones in a box, with milk, muesli, long life milk and some small 'toasts'. It was a bit disappointing.

Lovely site, basic but perfectly adequate for our stay. The couple who look after it were really friendly and helpful. We borrowed a rice cooker to use, Only downside was kitchen didn't have much to cook with, so we had to improvise. Even cooking scrambled eggs we had no jug to make it in. Beds comfortable, one bedroom only had one bedside table so that meant I had to put stuff on window sill behind me , and it got wet. Shower was extremely good very powerful and loved the heater above you.
One warning don't cook onions or spicy food , they requested that not to cook otherwise would charge you cleaning fee because of the smell!!

A surprisingly good motel for the tariff. It was spotlessly clean, heaps of hot water, roomy bathroom, quiet, good laundry, and not far from anything. Sitting outside having a wine looking at the massive mountains behind the motel was also a bonus.

A very nice basic motel with everything one could need. Not fancy, but I gave it a 5 rating because it is perfect for its price range. The bed was comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful, and room had all necessities. Be aware the reception area closes early (I think it was at 8 pm)

Loved this place, clean, functional and great layout. They've clearly thought of everything you need for a stay in Franz Josef. Very well equipped in terms of cooking facilities, crockery, iron, TV/Dvd etc. Liked the fact that even the remote controls for entertainment had been cleaned and wrapped in paper bag for the next person's use. Very comfortable beds. Netflix available, which we used on an exceptionally rainy day!
Near to restaurants/bars/supermarkets and for helicopter flights. Ample parking. Just great.

My partner and I stopped here for one night as we had booked an eco-tour hike. This seemed like the best option in the area and we were VERY happy with our selection.

The couple who greeted us (substitutes for friends who own the place) were SO sweet! They were slightly elderly and I'd love to adopt them! Check-in and check-out were simple. Plentiful parking.

The room was spacious, immaculately clean and quiet. We had a great night of sleep!

There are plenty of restaurant choices nearby (the couple was kind enough to give us a map of the area and recommend a few), as well as a gas station (important!).

It's setting is beautiful; lots of mountains around.

We HIGHLY recommend this place.
