“Luxurious motel”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Stayed for one night to see Franz Josef glacier and to do a helicopter flight. Excellent studio with spa bath. Very spacious and modern fittings. Fully-equipped. Central heating (quite a novelty). Very helpful owners, booked our flight for us and recommended good restaurant (Blue Ice Cafe) within short walking distance. Excellent wifi. Would highly recommend a stay at this motel if you are in Franz Josef.

Hi John, thanks for your comments. Good to hear you enjoyed the Blue Ice Café for your evening meal, I wonder if you used there free limousine service, its very popular with our guests.
Cheers

I stayed in the studio with spa room for two nights and totally loved it. The room was spacious and modern. It was well equipped with everything you need (multi power points all over the room!). The jacuzzi was such a pleasure for relaxing after touring in the day. They even have this metal bar heater in the bathroom that heats up the towels and keeps you from feeling too cold after your shower. Everything seems so new and clean! Pete gave me a good pack of fresh milk for my coffee. A very nice welcoming gesture (though I bought a full bottle of milk on my own later). Thumbs up and would definitely stay here again if I visit Franz Josef

Room Tip: Room with the private spa is excellent!

Diane, thanks for taking time out to place a review. All our guests love the Spa Baths especially if like yourself, they have been up on the ice hiking and have a few aches and pains they need to sooth away in the tub. Glad you got to enjoy the Glacier hike and all Franz has to offer.

This motel is very handy to the village of Franz Josef. Everything is within a very easy walk.
Our room was spacious, warm and comfortable. Our hosts very welcoming. We would stay here again. The only downside for me personally was I found the pillows a bit too hard but then I like a soft pillow.

Hi Bev n Chris. The great thing about Franz Josef is that mostly everything is within easy walking distance . Im sorry to hear you thought our pillows were a bit hard, we do have softer pillows available on request at reception which is why we always ask for our guests to let us know if there's anything they need or require. Were here to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Thanks again Pete n Sue

Very nice motel. New fresh and so clean. Good sized units and self contained which is perfect for us traveling with an infant. Beds are very comfortable and the service offered by the staff is very friendly and helpful- only positive things from our experience. A short stroll into the small town.

Great motel for a stay in Franz Josef. The small Kitchenette was great, it's so nice to be able to cook food whilst staying in a room which is hotel standard. The staff were friendly and helpful, with plenty of advice for day trips and activities. The internet was slow and very limited however, which wasn't a big problem as many of the local cafés have wifi. The room was lovely and spacious, well decorated and comfortable large bed. Would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Hi Gourmetgooners. Travellers like yourselves love the kitchens in all of our rooms, the ability to whip up a meal while on holiday instead of having to dine out.

We stayed here one night, june 2014. Studio # 2.
The studio flat looked new, very well furnished, spotlessly clean, full size kitchen with everything needed to cook full meals, bathroom with a spa tub. Simply excellent.
The owners are nice, friendly and helpful. I needed to print the boarding passes, and they kindly let me use the PC and color printer at the reception, with no charge, very nice of them.
Unfortunately we could spend only one day in Franz Josef, the area is worth spending more time and Aspen Court is the perfect place to stay.
Actually this is the best place we stayed during our trip in New Zealand. And one of the best places we stayed ever, period.
Thanks guys, hope to come back again.

Hi Dangerly. Its our pleasure if we can help out in any way to make your stay that more pleasant.
Your right, one night in Franz Josef just isn't enough time to see and do the things you should before moving on.
Thanks.
