We stayed here for two nights as we came from Kaikoura (about 6 hours) and would follow to Queenstown. A very scenic region like almost all New Zealand. About the hotel: The room is clean,good size, with kitchen facilities, walking distance to everything in Franz Josef. The price is reasonable for a tourist town.

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.

Slick and clean, excellent location, daily cleaning; like a very good airport hotel. We stayed a day more than we needed, so would have preferred additional bathroom space and better kitchen facilities.

We stayed in a studio room with balcony ,and were told on arrival that we had been upgraded to a spa bath room. I think the room and balcony were the same as booked though.
The location is excellent, it is in the town with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.
The room itself was very clean and modern. The kitchen area was well equipped, although we ate out both nights, so only used it for tea/coffee making.
We loved Frans Josef and would stay at the Alpine Glacier again if ever we make it back to NZ.

Room Tip: Book a room with a glacier view.

We enjoyed our one night stay. Clean, all that we needed for a night stay, and well located! Free WiFi a big plus! Quiet at night and close to restaurants. A walk to see the glow worms after dinner a must!
