Checked in late in the day. Jo was warmth and friendly. Made us feel very comfortable with the stay. Was quick to find out our plans suggest to us where to go and keen to know the overall experience of our stay even on the places we've visited.
Premises was nice and clean. Being a motel the utensils & cutlery were well stocked and clean.
The rooms were nice & comfy. The common areas within the hut were spacious.
A washer & dryer were available for use for a small and but reasonable fee.
There were nuggets of pleasant surprises for the family along during the stay, though simple but made our day.
A small little aspect that can be better though is the absence of a prominent signage for returning guests from town of Franz Joseph. As it gets very dark at night, it takes an eagle eyed to spot the entrance to resort when driving back in.
Will recommend the stay there anytime for the total experience it offers - especially with Jo.
