Unit was very clean and modern. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked with crockery and kitchen items. Very easy 3 min walk to centre of town. Quiet, and car park directly outside door. Good value.

Beautiful clean room with very comfortable bed. Would have liked to have had more fresh air flow through the room and as there wasn't a air conditioner in the room it was quite hot which made it hard to sleep. But overall the room was very good.

Unfortunately the room had a fat cooking smell in it that lingered for some time even after the vanilla scented candles were lit for some time,the owners did ask if we wanted to move but felt that the candles would be sufficient,but after they were put out the smell came back.

Hi Doug, You didn't let us know about the smell in the room till the next day. You spent one night in the room, and then came to reception to say the room smelled. If you had mentioned it the day you checked in, then we could have moved you into another room. We did offer to move you on the 2nd day you were here, but you declined. Yes we thought the candles would make a difference and be sufficient, as did you. After you arrived back from your activities on the 2nd day, we checked with you re the room and the smell. You said that it was fine, and you didn't want to move.

Nice motel with nice spa bath!

Conveniently located motel just opposite the Franz Josef Glacier Guides office. Best part of the stay was definately the spa bath that can comfortably fit 2 people. Bathroom seems recently renovated as well. Very happy with our stay!
