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... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at 58 On Cron while visiting the glacier area. Our host Anne looked after us, and thankfully booked a heli-hike for me minutes after arrival. This was great as the weather was picture perfect, and the next day not as good. Naively I wore the 3 to 4 layers suggested and being a fine... More

A brilliant little motel which is superbly run. Owners could not be more helpful and the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Plenty of parking available (outside rooms) and not far from anything in Franz Josef itself.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and were very happy. The rooms were clean, well appointed and spacious. Staff were friendly and helpful. The motel is in a great location. There was plenty of parking and enough heating to keep us warm on a cold winters night.

We stayed with friends from England for 2 days in February The motel is situated off the main highway, just one back from the township of Franz Josef which made for a very quiet and peaceful break.
