We have the 2 bedroom for 6 pax and though it was slightly expensive, the apartment was comfortable. The corner of 1 sofa was sunken and could not be used. Kitchen is small but adequate for coffee making and breakfast. Rooms however are stuffy and warm. Laundry service is shared and dryer could not dry our clothes well.

Hi I am glad you found your room comfortable. I believe you stayed in our two bedroom Cottage which is away from the 10 studio Cottages and house slightly. This Cottage has bedding for up to 7 people but I agree if you want more space our House would have given you twice as much space and a full kitchen...

The cottages look a bit like shipping containers with windows and were quite compact. The queen bed was comfortable, the bathroom modern. The only place to sit, other than the bed, were two dining chairs. Compared with other places we had stayed I felt the tariff was excessive for what we got. Our dining experience in Franz Josef was not...

Hi Thank you for your feedback, I am glad you found the bathroom modern and the bed comfortable. I am sorry you found us expensive, being in a remote location the operating costs are considerable higher than other better connected locations you may have stayed in, our prices are regularly benchmarked against our competitors - there is over 30 accommodation...

This is a very comfortable establishment. Our cottage was fitted out for disability customers but was perfect for grandparents travelling with a grandchild. The beds were comfy, the shower was hot, and there was plenty of room for us to move about. The staff were excellent and the hot scones and jam in the evening were a lovely and welcome...

This was our second stay at 10 Cottages and we were pleased to have the opportunity to return. The rooms are located in individual units, some with mountain views, in a quiet cul-de-sac away from the CBD of Franz Josef, however, you're still only a few minutes walk from the main high street. The units are spacious and tastefully decorated...

The best part of 10 Cottages is the owner Logan. He went above and beyond helping us find a way to Queenstown as the buses were full. He made many phone calls on our behalf and we will be forever grateful. The location is perfect to walk into town about 5 minutes. The cottage was quite comfortable with lots of...

We had 2 comfortable nights at the 10 Cottages in early January. The 10 Cottages are quite close together, but it was always peaceful and quiet. Each cottage sleeps up to 3 people, so larger families like ours need two - unless you book the much larger onsite holiday house which our friends did. The Cottages have a view of...

The cottages are just about 40 Sqm with two queen beds, kitchenette and a very small bathroom. The 10 cottage are really squeezed in a very small compound. There is nice mountain views but you won't have much privacy enjoying the same. Short walk to all there is to do in FJG. Just about value for money... Not the boutique...

Modern but cosy cottages with well equipped kitchenette, but extremely small bathroom. The cottages lack privacy as they are built very closely to each other and there are no netting curtains on the windows, so you are literally looking into other peoples cottages if your curtains are drawn. The cottages have nice view of the mountains and the cottages are...
