Location and amenities
The proprietor had gone to the trouble of purchasing a box of beer and bottle of wine for a group of thirsty Harley riders as we had asked him to.
Good location, easy and simple facility
Quiet location, handy to everything, very clean, modern
Toilet seat needed fixing. Room got hot
Relaxed and comfortable
Good solid value for money Motel, with all the amenities you would require. Franz Joseph is a bit of a one horse town, but enough restaurants and activities to keep you occupied for 1 or 2 nights. The essential quality is being close to Franz Joseph and Fox's Glacier.
Close to centre of town
Too noisy during the daytime
Parking outside downstairs units very tight.
Great donuts at the bakery around the corner
Very comfortable, large sofa, mountain view from balcony and excellent kitchen facilities plus spa bath.
Managers friendly, great location, spacious unit
Good location, but Franz Josef isn't very big anyway
Weak WiFi; room had a strange smell (from cleaning chemicals used?)
Great service. We were upgraded to a King Room which was fantastic.
We stayed for 2 nights in a Queen Studio. What was in the room was all vey modern and new. The bed was large and very comfortable. The manager was very friendly and helpful. We thought the room was a bit on the small side. The only catering facilities were a fridge and a micro wave. No table in the room. Not sure where you would eat if self catering? Bathroom was average size but with a deficiency of shelves or cupboards. Sponge bags on the floor! Only one chair. The ground floor room was directly facing onto a service road/ footpath. Needed to keep curtain closed. We did enjoy our stay. If we returned to Franz Joseph we would stay again but in a larger unit.
Roof in front of room too low for camper van
Location, facilities, staff all good and walking distance to all amenities in town
Mark was friendly and very efficient. We asked for something to clean the iron with and two minutes later Mark delivered a brand new iron to us.
Parking space was tight. The spot we had been allicated was difficult for the driver to get in and out of the car.
The view from our balcony was to die for - didn't expect it. Used the spa - totally private. A short walk to everything, really good location.
Easy to find, convenient for local amenities. Parking a bit cramped but acceptable. Town is very small so everything near at hand.
Local spa baths very expensive - charged $10 for towel hire!
Room set out brilliant
The best part was flying with Air Safaris over the glaziers. Also the great hospitality of the manager of the motel.
Good central location for Franz Josef town bars and restaurants. Short drive to the glacier walk starting point.
Heavy rain. Noisy drains. No desk or table to write at. No visible smoke alarm.
Reception very friendly and helpful,size and airiness of room great Good position
