We had a great experience at this hotel. We drove from Greymouth and arrived late. The inn keepers gave us a warm welcome and was really flexible when we had to cancel one night of stay as the weather was pretty bad and we didn't want to stay for another night as booked. It was not just the clean room, cozy place with a fire place, a big flat TV screen, free wifi, and the additional eggs to the the continental breakfast (not normally include egg) that made this a wonderful place. It was the genuine care of the staff about our well being made a great impression for us. It was more than just a business transaction to them, they made us feel like we are friends and families. This was important when you travel to a far, remote and unpopulated place like New Zealand!

Stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay, the beds are super comfy, big tv and free wifi great for when the weather takes a turn for the worst! The fireplaces in the rooms also give it a really cosy feel. Owners are really nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend it.

The oasis is quite new and is mainly for couples. The room was lovely, comfortable bed and a great heater. Sky channels and free wifi. The managers were extremely helpful and friendly. We had a beautiful cooked breakfast as well as fresh fruit and yoghurt. Rooms were clean and just what we needed for relaxing after a big day of driving. It's a bit out of town but fine if you have a car. It's a lovely spot and would definitely stay there again. Loved it!

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!
