A motel style hotel. All rooms on the ground floor. The room we had was equiped for the less able. No idea if all the rooms are like this. Ther was a good sized shower room. Beds were very comfortable. Room quite large. There was a good welcome. Very helpful. The heater was a bit noisy.

The motel was comfortable and everything you would need. The staff were really helpful with activities. Frans Josef is about the glacier. It is small. The motel is easy walking distance to reataurants and cafes.

We stayed here for 3 nights.. Anne and Richard were very helpful on email suggesting things to do. The motel is well located, few minutes walk from supermarket and all the attractions --everything is neat and clean, comfortable and convenient. The only point is about the wi-fi- they give you vouchers which run out quickly, then you have to key...

Stayed for a few nights whilst visiting the glacier as part of a trip around a New Zealand. This motel was one of the best we stayed in. The room was large, free WiFi was available, the layout of the motel meant you aren't too overlooked and the location is great. As a tip if you're staying here avoid the...

Lovely units close to everything with extremely helpful staff. There are so many channels and you can rent movies too. The rooms are comfortable and the shower had amazing pressure. The hot pools are right across the street and they give you loads of Internet vouchers. Overall a great stay.

The reception staff were cheerful and the rooms were spacious and warm. The shower was large and the water hot... after a long day we collapsed into bed and slept soundly all night. The hotel is conveniently located across from the thermal pools and a short walk to any number of great restaurants. We would definitely return... loved it. Thanks...

On arrival staff friendly and helpful. Good size room, clean and tidy but mattress too soft needs to be replaced. On the brighter side conveniently located to everything and directly opposite to the hot pools.

Designed to look a bit like a rainforest retreat, this excellent little hotel is the perfect stopping point for a tour of the glaciers. We loved being able to park right outside of our room and it was nice to get a break from lugging suitcases up flights of stairs. The only downside is a limited tv channel selection. With...
