“Outstanding value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Just a couple of minutes’ walk from Franz Josef village, 10 Cottages is the perfect accommodation for a night or two to see the local sights. Each unit is completely separate and far enough away from the main road to be very quiet. The well designed studio layout is neat and tidy, with a little fridge, microwave, dishes and cutlery enabling simple cooking options. A very comfortable bed and good bathroom, along with being able to park your vehicle right outside, make this an excellent choice and we would definitely return.

Room Tip: We stayed in No 2, but all the cottages are equally well situated.

we were travelling up the west coast - 10 cottages is convenient spacious and extremely comfortable as well as good value. Our hosts gave us great advice on places to eat and what to do in our short time in Franz Josef.

10 Cottages has very nice units. They are definitely a value. We were especially pleased with the cooperative management. We would up having to leave Franz Josef after just two nights of a three-night reservation, and they were very accommodating in not charging us for the third night. Lots of good advice on things to do and places to eat.

It is always easier to change booking details and dates when people book direct with us (which is also the cheapest option).

I'm just coming towards the end of a 10 day stay in the Franz Josef area and have found the accomodation at 10 Cottages to be absolutely perfect for my needs. The owner and staff have gone out of their way to be helpful, friendly and accommodating and the spotlessly clean room fully reflects their approach to their guests. I regularly travel round the world for work and pleasure and it's nice when you feel you've found somewhere comfortable you are happy to stay for an extended period. Franz Josef abounds with activities, from helicopter scenic flights to quad -biking to local walks, and nothing disappoints.

Thank you for your comments. I hope the rest of your trip goes well and you make it back here to do some of the other walks one day. I forgot to mention the Copland Valley (and welcome flat), if you make it back it would be another great walk to do.
I hope your few days in Australia were not too tiring and you got home without any flight delays.

Nice comfortable and convenient accommodation. Hosts very helpful and knowledgable about the district and available activities could not be more helpful. Close to Kiwi exhibit, restaurants and excellent glacier flight.
