    The owners only took over there a few weeks ago and couldn't do enough to make our stay really excellent - lots of advice on what to do, where to visit, etc. and really made sure that everything was as we wanted in our unit. The location of the motel is superb, with fantastic views across the lake to the snow capped mountains beyond. There is a free washing machine and drying lines by each unit (or a dryer which was $2). An excellent stay.

    Bedrooms were on the small side and lacked wardrobes, but our unit did have a wardrobe in the hallway. Anyway, all the "plus" points above, more than made up for this minor comment.

    Very caring, helpful and friendly proprietors; warm, clean and fresh rooms; great facilities; easy to get the shuttle bus to town and tours; great view from the motel - the full moon rose over the mountains just before sunset! I'd definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Franz Josef.

    We were welcomed by friendly hosts and the motel was ideal. It was very cold outside but the rooms were perfect. The recommendation for dinner was also appreciated - a fantastic meal.

    Services were basic.It was good to park car at front of unit.

    Was disappointed that it was so far away from facilities. There was no view of glacier.

    Very clean rooms, up to date furnishings in a slightly older building, very comfortable. We were all happy.

    Very clean

    5 mins drive to town but next to the key highway which is noisy for me. Beds too soft, 5 of us don't really enjoy it. Interesting cooking policy to keep the unit clean (e.g. no seafood?!) I didn't feel being welcome, maybe because we only stay 1 night. There is a notice stated you could request additional heater/electric blanket and if you do, please let them know in advance. On the day we arrived it's heavily raining and very cold to us, so we requested either a electrical blanket/heater for the one who has to sleep in the living room, however, we don't feel it's really easy to get this from the staff/owner, being challenged as this demand high electricity usage and we only pay for such a "budgeted" rate. (Maybe we are just too used to the previous holiday park that we stayed with enough electricity blanket/heater and just 50% off this motel rate). At the end, we get the extra heater. We are not those people who love to waste the natural resources, while if it's the motel's notice to let us know that we could request. We just don't want to request during the mid-night while we found that we are too freeze to sleep. In fact, we just have to use that to warm up the place before sleep and we simply turn it off before bed, it's the unfriendly attitude for the staff/owner's response make us feel bad. There are plenty of choice in the area, don't think our mood should be ruined by this.

    The owners were friendly and informative, and their doggy was just so lovable!!! The location of the park was excellent, the view of Franz Josef from our front door was just magic.

  • Older travelers

    We liked the privacy and being able to unpack our belongings from the car under shelter. We were also very comfortable and appreciated having an easy chair in the room. Excellent value and we would have liked to stay longer.
