Stayed here two nights and wished we had stayed longer. Great location, close to several good restaurants (The Alice May and Landing are both great) which the owner gave us a discount voucher for. The Glow worms are also very close and well worth a visit, the owner explained how to find them and the kids really liked them.
Our room was large with plenty of space, very clean and a standard motel kitchen - the covered car park was a great bonus (not all rooms have covered car parks).
We will definitely stay again when next in Franz Josef
Stayed in a studio room for 3 nights. Room was very spacious, clean and comfortable and the bathroom and kitchenette were very good as well. Bed was large and comfortable and we slept well all 3 nights. Location was very easy to find within walking distance to everything in town. Staff were always friendly and helpful and had some good tips on the local area and activities. The fresh scones each night delivered to the room were a really nice touch as well. Highly recommended to anyone looking to stay in Franz Josef.

Only spent a night in Franz Josef but glad I booked The Terrace Motel. Clean, spacious and modern room. Sadly weather did not cooperate and allow me to enjoy the glacier but the motel is steps away from the rowi kiwis at the West Coast Wildlife Centre and quality dining and shopping in the small town. Staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Highly recommended!

The motel is well situated close to restaurants and sight seeing options. Logan, at the front desk, was very helpful organizing our helicopter ride, advising on nearby hiking trails and restaurants within walking distance.
The room was quite suitable for 2 couples traveling together. It was clean and spacious enough for us to feel comfortable. We appreciated the free WIFI and the price per night was quite reasonable.
Loved the evening delivery of freshly baked warm scones! They go the extra mile to make you feel welcome! We would stay here again.
