“Lovely room and service to match”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

Very new accommodation just out of Franz Josef. It's only a 5 minute drive to town, and extremely quiet. Gorgeous, clean and warm rooms! Very comfortable beds. We ate breakfast outside and it was a beautiful setting. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed in the Oasis for two nights while travelling through New Zealand by car. The area is great for those who love mountains, glaciers, and the outdoor life, but it would also be very special for total peace and relaxation. There are many great walks nearby, a glacier to experience, swimming and hot pools not far away, plane and helicopter rides, and stunning mountain views everywhere you turn. What looks like a motel from the outside is far, far, better than that from the inside. The grounds are really pleasant and beautifully kept, with an attractive lake. The rooms are furnished and equipped to a very high standard with lots of thoughtful little touches, like lights that dim, top-quality wine glasses, and proper mugs. Having a modern, stylish, attractive, glowing electric fire creates a focal point in the room, giving it an atmosphere of warmth and homeliness that is difficult to experience in a hotel room. The public areas are beautifully furnished with a modern, minimalist look, and have great wall photographs showing superb scenery. The staff are very helpful, friendly, and genuinely interested in their customers. The breakfasts were healthy, with lots of fresh fruit, a variety of breads and superb croissants. I tried bacon and eggs, the bacon was top quality and the eggs cooked exactly as I like them. This hotel is good value for money. It's a long way away from the usual mass-produced four-star hotel chain experience. We will return!

We stayed overnight in a superior room...what a treat! The king size bed was sumptuously soft and feathery, the crisp white cotton bedding was heavenly! The fire was cosy and relaxing, as was the spa bath! It was just what was needed after a walk to franz josef ;)
The hosts were friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us! We chose to have breakfast at $15 each....wow! Fresh croissants, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast, juice and coffee of our choosing! We were also treated to eggs and bacon, yum yum!
Would we stay again....YES!!

Our room was cozy and inviting with a fire place and a down feather top bed. Sandy and Mac went out of their way to make us feel at home. Mac even brought us to town for dinner and picked us up afterward.
We went to Alice May for dinner and were disappointed though.

Highly recommend the Franz Josef Oasis.

Stayed two nights, took a risk at staying at brand spanking new units, four kilometers from Franz Josef proper. Set in a`farmside location, just out of town, the rooms are really nice. Having had a quick look at the in town competition, the Oasis is high end. Seems to cater for Couples rather than family. For a remote location, there is little competition although there are something like 19 accommodation places around town. Breakfasts are great, Wifi is free and beds are cosy. . Give it a try.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the farm have views.

The Franz Josef oasis is an amazing place to stay, its situated out of town so you get the peace and tranquility of staying in the country, and with a 5min drive you can be in the centre of the township. The room was great with a very good attention to detail. I highly recommend the cooked breakfast too! And to top it off the staff went the extra mile to make the stay extra special. ill definitely be a repeat customer :-D
