Excellent and smooth reception. Very helpful with our TV struggles, ha ha. The room was very well designed - looked great. Motel is well located, but then pretty much everything is in Franz Josef, it is not big. Got a good recommendation for where to eat on our one night there and then it was just a stroll across the...

Great communication with the very nice owner in advance and during our stay, very helpful and caring that our stay will be perfect. Great location, close to everything, hot pools across the street, We got towels for them at the motel, as well as a map and explanation of Fox Glacier town for our drive to the south. Very nice...

Booked with plans of going on Franz Josef heli hike. Got canceled d/t cloud. Motel was nice. Got the room on the far end. Convenient to helicopter companies and restaurants downtown. Service very friendly. Easy check in/checkout. Nothing bad to say about this place.

We had a great stay at 58 On Cron. The room was very comfortable and it was conveniently located opposite the Glacier Guides company we were using for the Franz Josef Glacier hike. Unfortunately the wifi didn't function in our room which is why I cannot give this accommodation 5 stars. However, besides this everything else was great.

Convenient and comfortable. The shower was not great as hardly any water flow. The kitchen is limited to simple type meals as only 2 cooking elements. Good fridge and Sky TV. Warm and walking distance to my st of the small town.

veOn arrival there is a little office by the entrance and the welcome by the lady receptionist was friendly and helpful. She was it seems genuinely interested in the travels we were on and left the office to take us to the room and show us around it. It would be fair to say this is a receptionist that goes...

Fast and efficient check in. Parking was right in front of our room. The room was very big, with a king bed, table and two chairs, kitchenette, fridge, sink and coffee and tea making facilities. Cable TV and DVD. Good bathroom. There were washing and drying facilities available but not until after 4pm. The cost was very moderate. Our room...

We had the pleasure of spending two nights here while visiting Franz Joseph. The moment we checked in we were greeted with the most friendly person Iv met in NZ so genuinely lovely. Our room was just so clean and generous in size the photos don't do this place justice. We came from Queenstown and stayed in quite expensive accommodation...

If you fancy being greeted by cold, officious staff, this is your place. We arrived 2 hours before check in and my wife was suffering from bladder infection with serious pain. There were no public toilets on the way and arrived desperate to use the loo. My wife explained her condition but was told that no toilet would be made...

Hello Paul, Thank you for your comments. Your booking agent would have provided information that our check-in time is 2 pm and check-out is at 10 am. As you know, these hours between check-out and check-in are vital to allow our housekeeping staff to clean and prepare the rooms for our new guests each day. As is standard practice globally,...

We were also pleasantly surprised by the quality of this room. It is, as someone said, just a motel, but the furnishings and decor are very nice. The kitchenette was well-equipped, Alex (the only staff person we met) was an absolute delight in welcoming us and making certain all our needs were met. The location is perfect-- right across the...
