We stayed for one night while traveling along the West Coast. The property is a standard motel where you park your car in front of the room door. The room itself was very spacious and clean, offering all amenities you may need for a short stay. Given that all restaurants are pretty much in walking distance, we did not have to move our car in the evening, which we appreciated. The only minor negative was the price: we had better value for money in other properties in New Zealand and found the price to be a tad high for what is offered. We do nevertheless understand that Franz Josef tends to be a bit more expensive that other areas in general.
All-in-all we would suggest this motor lodge for a short stay and would go back.
