Excellent Motel

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Jan 2021
This motel was in a great location at Franz Josef. The unit was spacious and spotlessly clean. We highly recommend this accommodation. The staff were very friendly and the hot pools were just across the road, restaurants were also close by

We are a family of 5 and stayed in the 2 bedroom room. Spotlessly clean and very well maintained, the motel is kept to be best standards. Franz Joseph settlement is small, so nothing is more than 5 minutes walk away.

We stayed in a one bedroom in January for just one night - wished we could have stayed longer. Unit was decorated beautifully, and had all the amenities we needed - just wished we had time to try out the spa bath! Beds were so comfy, we had the best sleep. Will definitely be back another time. Thank you :)

We stayed there for 3 nights in January 2021. Great location, off main road but within short walking distance from eating places and shops.

The studio is clean, modern and well maintained. Kitchen well stocked with the necessary utensils for a simple meal. shower has great water pressure.

Living area has mountain view and it will be a nice view in winter with snows on the mountain.

Will stay again if we pass by or visit again in future.

We stayed (family of 3 in a one bed apartment) at this lovely Motel from 4-6th January on a road trip up to Nelson.
Great quiet location, spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable beds, spa bath and modern with everything you need.
Short walk to Glacier Hot Pools, cafes and restaurants.
Loved Franz Josef even in the rain and if we ever return, we would only stay here.
Highly recommended!

Words do not do this accommodation justice. It was beyond excellent and we were very reluctant to leave in the morning. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and farewelled when we checked out. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very luxurious. It is perhaps the best we have experienced as part of our South Island adventures. I would highly recommend this accommodation.
