Very comfortable, modern, well-appointed family suite. Although we did not use it, the kitchen facilities in the room were very good. Hosts very welcoming and informative. Would definitely stay there again

Great Staff. Very helpful in arranging glacier hike. Very clean. Loved our stay
We stayed at this property for three nights earlier this month and found the experience quite nice. Checkin was quick and easy, and Anne was there waiting for us even though we came in at a sunny 8.30 p.m. The room looked new and was quite well appointed, has a sofa, a nice bed, TV, kitchen utensils and a bathroom. There are kitchen utensils and there is a quick and easy to use laundry facility, I did use that. The motel is just a walking distance from the town center, main activities etc. There's an Indian restaurant (Priya) and a hot pool near by. The only incident that happened when we were there at 58 on Cron was the whole town ran out of water and Ann was kind enough to give us a bottle of water while the repairs were going on. There's enough parking space inside as well. Overall a very good experience....
Hats off to Anne and Richard who went beyond the call of duty. I had a problem with my motorcycle and Richard helped me with parts and tools to get me back on the road. Superb!
The rooms themselves were clean, modern and spacious. Great location close to town and restaurants etc. Right across the road from the hot springs is a plus.
This place is as good as they all a=say but we spent 2 nights over new year here with another family. The place was lovely and clean and the management was terrific and more than helpful and friendly.
Our complaint is that there are no fly screens on the windows. At night our rooms filled with mosquitos I killed 30 before bed and then had to wipe the blood marks off the wall. When I mentioned it in the morning I was told they don't usually have this sort of problem but it was a bad night in the area. Even so it is highlighted on the map of NZ that it is in a bad area for mossies. Even if there were no mosquitoes, no screen still allow bugs to get in. As there is no need for air con in the area, but as the nights do get warm at this time of year (29oC) you do need to open the windows to get some air.
If screens on the windows don't worry you then this is a terrific stop on a trip around the south island.
We are glad you enjoyed your time in Franz Josef.Yes we agree it was a bad night for mossies when you stayed with us and as I mentioned we hadn't had them that bad since we have been here over 3years.
We wish to advise we have taken into account your comments and have ordered and hopefully will be fitted in the next couple of weeks screens for some of the windows in all the units so they can be left open.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

We only stayed at 58 On Cron for one night but really enjoyed our stay. The room was really clean and comfortable, and the DVDs you could borrow were a nice addition. The managers/owners were lovely and provided lots of advice when were had questions. The hotel is a short walk from restaurants and the attractions and right across the road from the mineral spa.
