“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We with another couple stayed for 2 nights, there is nothing more we could have asked for. Large rooms, comfortable bed and quality fixtures. Located within walking distance of everything, even the FJ Glacier if that way inclined. Very quiet. Sue and Peter are excellent hosts.

A very clean and comfortable room. Nicely styled, comfortable bed and very quiet. Would recommend without question. Ate at the restaurant next door, the Thai/Chinese - also extremely good, and reasonable.

Very new motel on the edge of Franz Josef village with easy access to all the shops and restaurants. Very new feel to the room. Really comfortable and quiet. Nowhere to sit outside the motel room. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Ideal stopping point for a short visit to Franz Josef.

Yes you're correct PGTips01, we are a new motel - only opened in Dec. The outside seating areas are still being worked on.

The big room was exceptionally clean, fresh smelling and warm. The huge windows show the deep bush that surrounds the motel. In the night there was not a single noise. You can walk in 2 minutes to the main road but it is quietly tucked away from the bustle. We really enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: If you want a jacuzzi choose the two bedroom apartment.

We spent one night here on our way down the West Coast. The rooms are probably the most stylish motel rooms I have seen in NZ...very spacious and well appointed. The location is great, near everything but very quiet. And the owners were very helpful in making bookings and even adding money to the laundry meter so our clothes would be dry before we left. Overall, we were very impressed and would have liked to have stayed longer.

As par with our entire experience in NZ, great hosts is the stand out for this place. Nice and clean and right next to the hot water springs and a stones throw to the eating joints. It was practically new when we stayed here in mid Feb and was super clean. Definitely value for money.

This motel has only been open about 3 months. Sue and Pete were friendly hosts. Fantastic, large motel room with hotel style fittings - very stylish and comfortable. Very quiet – even with a restaurant / bar car park next door. Didn't hear any noise from adjacent rooms either. 5 minute stroll to shops and other restaurants. Spa across the road. We had a good meal at the Asian restaurant next door and a good night’s sleep ready to check out the glacier the next morning.
