Lovely motel cottage up the back of town, only a short distance to town and many local walks. The staff could not have been more helpful and provided a town map on arrival with recommendations for restaurants and walks. The room itself was a good size with a small kitchenette and functional bathroom with good water pressure. The little balcony out the front provided a good spot to have lunch or read a book when it wasn't raining, with views over the surrounding mountains. Parking spaces were allocated for all cottages. This was the perfect place to base ourselves for 3 nights while we explored Franz Josef and Fox Glacier.

Great cabin located in the heart of Franz Joseph. We stayed in the 2 bedroom cabin which was located away from the other cottages. The amenities in the cottage was great and the beds were really comfortable. There was even a large BBQ to cook on if one desired!

Lovely location. We had the Mountain View cottage (no 1). The little cottage was very clean, well appointed with kitchen items, good heating, lovely sheets and towels. The little veranda was so nice to have to sit and see the views. Staff were friendly and helpful.

What a find! I recently stayed here for 3 days. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owner. Experienced both rain and sunshine during my stay - where possible mornings were spent enjoying breakfast on the deck listening to the bird song, including hearing and seeing kea fly above and tui feeding in nearby trees. The cottage is super clean, shower has amazing pressure, cottage has everything you need, perfect location with mountain views, you are in walking distance to everything in the village including a myriad of different walks. I absolutely recommend staying here, and will definitely stay again. Thank you again 10 Cottages Team, 11/10.

Our room was warm, had a powerful shower, a comfortable king bed and whole 50 shades of beige was very clean. Couldn’t use the small outdoor deck as was cold and wet. We stayed 2 nights and it was just ok. Did some laundry there which was helpful. Don’t expect too much. Owner asked us to pay virtually the minute we arrived.

A fantastic 1 night stay. Room was exactly as pictured, spacious, clean and cosy with great ammenities. Nice and quiet location, with comfortable beds and a cute private deck to sit on. Loved the native West Coast plants and trees, we like being in a forest. Service on check in and check out was very friendly and took the time to advise on recommendations in the area. Located right around the corner (150m) from the Tatare Tunnel walk with glow worms, highly recommend! As well as close walking distance to restaurants, bars, wild life centre, hot pools. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again next time! Thank you for the great stay.

A very clean and comfortable room at a very reasonable price. An easy walk to restaurants. This was a very quiet location and I am sure the views would be stunning if the rain had stopped!!! The room had everything you needed for a stopover.
