We stayed at The Terrace Motel on October 30th because of it's central location to shops and restaurants and we were not disappointed. Check in was efficient and friendly. Parking in front of our room had an overhang which was nice since there was a light drizzle. We drove up to see the glaciers at The Franz Joseph and the hike was pleasant after our day of driving. We had dinner at Alice May's Bistro next door - very nice! We picked up a few groceries at the Four Square store in town so we were set for the next day's drive to Wanaka.
