      The cottages are a good place to stay. They are not big but it's sufficient. The staff is friendly and the room service is good. Compared to others in Franz Josef it's good value for money because everything is overpriced here.

      The cottage was an excellent surprise. Lovely place

      Very warm and kind service from the hotel staff. The lady patiently and clearly introduced the view points and touring programs nearby. She help us to book heli tour. Really appreciate her great help. Value for money.

      TV is not good. Limited TV channel.

      Location excellent

      Space for cars a little "squeezy"

      It's really too pricey. It's suppose to be a cottage. But the space is soooo small. I was kinda expecting a cooker hob coz it's a cottage, but was so disappointed. The pantry was tiny. It's really not recommended and over priced. Another thing is the reception is somewhere far before the cottage. We had to asked around for it. Really nit recommended.

      rooms were comfortable

      well very rude owners...wont recommend.....

    • Older travelers

      Convenient,quiet location within Franz Joseph. There is a glow-worm walk behind the hotel.

      Ten cottages is misleading. They are ten tin sheds. This motel, like Franz Joseph in general, is over priced. We wished we had stayed at Fox.

    • Older travelers

      Great views of the mountains, close to the Franz Josef Glacier. Comfortable bed. Friendly helpful owners.

      1 bedroom cabin was rather small for the price.

    • Group of friends

      Convenient for activities in Franz Joseph and the owner was helpful in arranging activities. Good , clean standad room which one would find in any hotel.

      The cottages were not cottages but more like prefabricated units almost caravan like. The chalets were too close together having crammed the buildings on a site not large enough for 10 buildings, providing little privacy.

    • Group of friends

      Clean, handy to town, peaceful, modern, friendly staff, comfortable bed, compact but everything available.

      Where were the birds (feathery type)? No complaints whatsoever.

      We only stayed for 1 night but found the accommodation very comfortable & clean .

      Easy to access, great accommodation

    • Older travelers

      Close to town and other facilities. Reasonably priced compared to other accommodation around,, well appointed, roomy, nice decor, private but only one other cottage rented. We went there to climb the glacier and would've stayed longer except we had commitments in Christchurch

      A little overpriced, but not compared to others in Franz Josef. We got similar accommodation in Queenstown for $65/night

    • Older travelers

      Clean and comfortable facilities in the heart of Franz Josef. The old guy on the desk was knowledgeable of the area and pointed out attractions in the area.

      Would be nice if there was a stove top to cook my bacon and eggs in the morning as there was only a microwave.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Clean - nice bathroom - modern - good kitchen facilities

      There was absolutely no privacy from the adjoining cottages - we had to close the curtains to have any privacy at all. There was nowhere to sit outside after an exhausting walk to the glaciers. Sun was shining - it was a pity.
