2A & 2C. Stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom room.
It is a motel and given this the rooms are relatively spacious. They are clean and comfortable. They are reasonably well equipped with a kitchenette should you wish to cook your own food but don’t cook anything with an odour or you will pay a fee (I get why the signage is there but does seem a bit like someone made a sign ‘cos on an occasion someone was silly)!
Check in was quick and informative as was check out.
The motel is located well with regard to getting to Franz Joseph glacier, local restaurant and the nearby hot pools.
My only issue of any note was the lack of a place to put wet/snowy clothing. This is NZ in the winter so almost guaranteed that you will end up wet or covered in snow. We found that the room could not cope with the humidity of us to trying to dry off/warm up/shower. The room became very damp with heavy condensation.
Difficult one to sum up really... Would I stay here again? Yes. Will I ever need to stay here again? No. Be aware that you cannot access the glacier by foot anymore, only by helicopter. If this is out of your budget then stay nearer to Fox glacier.More
