You don't have a ton of options to chose from in Franz Josief and Fox glacier area. We were only here from 11:00pm to about 7:00am so it was a very short stay, which I can honestly say I'm thankful for. We slept well in what we hoped were clean sheets. The bathrooms are very small with the mirrors placed...

Impeccably clean rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and common areas. Franz Josef isn't the most exciting town, but Montrose leaves you close enough to walk, but far enough for it to be quiet. Good service in the reception, and surprisingly good WiFi for NZ.

Not the best accommodation we experienced more like a hostel. However the staff were friendly and when we had internet issues the manager did his best to support with this. Good location near to everything. A bit tired in places and more of a hostel than hotel. Ok for one or two nights.

They treat you like if they don't want you to be there. The Argentinian guy working there should not work in any kind of hospitality job. What a pity that a good hostel is ruined by just one guy from the staff. The spa is great by the way. I didn't try the soup.

Great hostel! Rooms don't have lockers though which was the only annoying thing, aside from that it's great!! The location is great right close to town and the staff are really friendly! There are some great walks and the staff will help to arrange stuff too!

We moved to stay here after an awful night at another hostel and we were pleasantly surprised. We spent two nights here in a private double room with shared bathroom. The room was very small but clean. Comfy bed. Showers and bathroom was also clean as well as the kitchen which was surprisingly clean. We used the laundry which was...

Cosy, clean, super friendly staff. There's a kitchen available. Quiet place and central location. They even served a yummy warm soup in the evening. Highly recommend it. We drove from Nelson and this was our overnight stay before heading to Queenstown. A great way to recover from the trip and we even had time to see Franz Josef glacier late...

I stayed here for one night with my mum in October 2016. On arrival we were given a free upgrade and our room had tea and coffee facilities, TV and an en-suite. We had breakfast included in our stay and we could choose between cereal or toast with a variety of toppings and spreads. The lady who checked us in...
