5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

I work for a travel company and we have stayed in many different places worldwide and we have to say this is one of the best and most memorable places we ever stayed.
Cozy, super clean room with tasteful interior design and a lovely view to the greens, grazing sheep and the mountains. Warm & genuine welcome from the friendly management.
We ended up staying in the room a lot to just sit, relax and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere.

We feel so lucky that we found Franz Josef Oasis. Sandi and Mac are the warmest, most welcoming hosts. They are very knowledgeable about everything in the area, and were instrumental in our excursions based on weather, distance, food preferences etc. This is a brand new hotel, and everything is top quality with a lot of amazing details, in a peaceful valley setting. We ate breakfast outside each morning, thoroughly enjoying the Paradise ducks with their ducklings on the pond in the meadow out front.
Evenings were spent in front of the glorious, decadent fireplace in our room. There's also a separate laundry room available for the guests to use, for a nominal fee. We can't recommend FJ Oasis enough.

Yes, you have to drive around 5 minutes to Franz Josef Township but this is a wonderful place if you want to surprise girlfriend or your wife in a honey moon or celebration. The location is wonderful, the rooms are fantastic, immaculate and comfortable. You might find better in Franz Josef (we know only this one) but I can ensure you that you will not find a place with better value for the price (we paid $180 NZD per night). Besides that, you will be received in a very friendly manner but a nice couple (unfortunately I do not remember their names) who were great. So, if you are travelling in a rented vehicle, do not hesitate. This is your place in Franz Josef Glacier.

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.

Stayed here for 1 night in October. Owners were very friendly and had great advice & knowledge on the local area. Room was amazing, fireplace made it so cosy and beds were v comfortable. Whittakers choc bars were a nice touch. We came when the weather was really bad and the owners kept us updated on the conditions of the roads which was v valuable
