We found it with sat nav, we got a welcome & limited WI-Fi voucher.
The room was fine & clean. Not much more to say except that when I mentioned we were thinking of dinner at the Blue Ice Cafe, the owner arranged for the restaurant to pick us up in the stretch Hummer so we could 'drink'.
A very nice experience

We only stayed one night on our trip down the west coast but it was a nice room and very comfortable. We enjoyed our night here and visited the hot springs opposite the hotel ( book a private pool it's well worth it!). We also went to the Alice May restaurant which was just up the road.
Would recommend this hotel as an ideal stop over.

Clean and efficient with modern decor in very good order. Its reliably well run and very well kept. Its also straight opposite hot pools and the two day spas! What could be better. The hosts are polite and professional and their admin is excellent.

One of the most modern motels we've seen at our New Zealand trip. Nice bedding, very good room layout. Bathroom ok but a bit small for a family of four.

5 minutes walking distance to almost everything in Franz Josef. Plenty of good food options around (you should try the monsoon bar&restaurant).

If you fancy the hot pools they are just opposite the motel and you can walk there in your bathing shorts.

Very straight forward: the complex is well maintained, clean, nice rooms, well managed and friendly. Good access to local restaurants and shops. We enjoyed our time here and can highly recommend this place.

Good size room for our family of 6 - the main room had a queen and a sofa bed, and then there was an adjoining room with two twins. The sofa bed could have been better, but otherwise this was a very clean and well laid out room. We left behind a bar of chocolate in the fridge and went back 2 hours later and it was gone. Of course, we had already checked out, but at least the lady at reception tried to help us.

Stayed at this motel during my honeymoon between the 27th till the 29th of December. It's a ten minute walk from all the main restaurants and activities in the middle of town, which is pretty good. No need for a car to travel around as Franz Josef is a very small town. Our room was well furnished and had everything we needed except an air-conditioner for cooling at night. The kitchen area had everything we needed to make our own food, including salt and pepper. The local supermarket was a ten minute walk away so making your own meals was pretty convenient. Overall we enjoyed our stay here, no complaints at all. The owner was also very helpful and suggested activities for us to do.
