Small rooms but perfect for overnight stay. Very happy to recommend this accommodation to others. We found the bed very comfortable and a great place to base our stay to explore the glaciers..........♡♥

This small motel in Franz Joseph was our biggest and best accommodation surprise in NZ. The room was so spacious, comfortable and very clean! The two fellows who run the place were extremely gracious in my email correspondence with them, and did not let us down upon our arrival at Alpine Glacier. It was extremely rainy when we arrived late afternoon so we opted to stay in and use the kitchenette facilities. Again, all you needed to warm up a basic meal. Bed was large and extremely comfy. Manager was so sweet. He upgraded us to a deck room. Motel in great location for the local evening life and a short drive to hiking trail for Franz Joseph Glacier. Would definitely recommend staying here. It was really a find and so reasonably priced.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the deck room. Definitely worth it. We awoke to beautiful views of the mountains and had our coffee on the deck.

Great room, beautifully furnished and with very good facilities. We arrived late in the day and were very much taken care of. The motel is well placed for restaurants and pubs and was a delight to stay in. I would say that perhaps a word to guests who plan to leave early is appropriate. We were woken at 6am with some very loud guests continually opening and closing cars doors and shouting to each other across the car park. Having said that this did not take away from the perfect accommodation and the quality of the service received. A+

Conveniently located, this is a quiet and comfortable place, with parking outside the rooms. The combined sitting room/bedroom/kitchen was large and bright, with a decent range of plates and cutlery, albeit rather old. No view from our room, but then as it was raining there wasn't much of a view from any room! The staff were helpful and friendly and the laundry facilities were good. I don't see myself staying for more than a night here - it's not the sort of place where you say "Oh good, let's go back to the hotel room this afternoon and relax" - but as a spot to stay short term it was fine.

Very basic accommodations for what we paid so my view is that it is a little overpriced for what is in the area. They advertise a personal balcony but it's really not that. More a 5ft by 5ft square deck that's not elevated more than 6 inches above the ground. Temperature control of the room was difficult. the inside is very bare. I suppose that's consistent with the idea of a motor lodge.

Room Tip: not sure the rooms with personal balcony are worth it. It's not really a balcony.
