This is a surprisingly great alternative to staying in the town itself. The towns are very touristy and filled with backpackers, but this hotel is quiet and cute and refined. The staff is awesome. Dinner is great. Breakfast is even better.

We stayed at the Franz Josef Oasis Lodge on our visit to climb to the glacier, or at least as high as we were permitted to go!. This is a super modern hotel, small on room numbers, but the rooms are excellent. Very light and airy, very comfortable bed and great bathroom. Breakfast is continental only here, but is was good and plentiful. We also had evening meal here, and it was very well prepared, and service was good. An excellent choice of hotel, although 10/15 kilometres outside of the town.

Date of stay: February 2018

Thanks shjig, what a lovely review, thank you very much. (The Hotel is actually approx. 5 km north if the village, about 5 minutes drive, so pretty close but very quiet!)
Yes, breakfast is continental, includes free range eggs, great to know that you found it to be good and plentiful.
Thanks for choosing our Hotel
regards

Stayed for one night during our trip around NZ. Very well presented and very modern and ultra clean. Great views, very comfy super king size bed, nice shower. Didn’t eat there so cannot comment on the breakfast/restaurant. Free WiFi was ok, fridge & tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Very peaceful and would happily stay again.

The rooms & bathrooms at Franz Josef Oasis are gorgeous - spacious, modern and tastefully decorated. The bed is large and super comfortable and the flickering light from electric fire place (we didn't need the heat function) was a nice touch. It's located in a rural setting a 5 minute drive away from the township and 15 minutes from the Glacier car park. It's not a good option for self caterers.

Dear SuzieLee71
Thank you for your review and very kind compliments. We have a restaurant ( instead of self-catering) although the rooms do have tea & coffee making.
Thanks for staying with us and enjoy the rest of your holiday!

This place is located less than five minutes from Franz Josef and yet you feel like you have the world to yourself. The setting couldn't be more relaxing. You are surrounded by sheep (well, who isn't in New Zealand?!), a small lake and big mountains. There is a lovely large deck outside the hotel where you can relax with a glass of wine after hiking the nearby glaciers (which we did!). There is a small restaurant on-site which produces some great food. Our room was spacious with a lovely electric fireplace and big window looking out to the pasture. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.
