  • The Franz Josef Glacier is just over 5kms from the village of Franz Josef. Descending 2000m from the Southern Alps in to New Zealand native bush at 300m above sea level, the glacier journeys a total of 12kms. Over 7000 years old, Franz Josef Glacier is easily accessible; stunning views of the glacier may be gained by taking a 20 minute return walk from the glacier road car park.

  • The Whataroa river, Lake Mapourika (Flower of the Dawn) and Okarito Lagoon are all bodies of crystal clear water offering a myriad of opportunities to get in touch with mother nature. Natural habitats for New Zealand native birds, local fauna and flora, all are exceptional eco-friendly attractions for kayaking and boat cruises.

  • For a friendly welcome, great cuisine, fine wines and good beers visit Franz Josef’s local restaurants, cafe and pub scene. Great nights out, wonderful lunches and good coffee to wake you up for a full day on the glacier.

  • While there are plenty of things to do in Franz Josef when the weather is good, we are surrounded by wild rainforest and precipitous mountains and can get the odd bad weather day. Make the most of Alpine Glacier Motel's cosy atmosphere to relax with a book and a hot drink, or get out and enjoy all the other activities available to you in the wonder of New Zealand countryside.

    Arrived early and ended up with an upgrade. What fantastic rooms and friendly service from Billy. The huge king size bed, massive room and perfect view made this a spectacular stay even though it was just one night. Next time we will be staying longer.

    Although we stayed mainly in bed and breakfast places whilst touring New Zealand we chose the Alpine Glacier motel on this occasion as it is handily placed for visiting the Franz Joseph Glacier. It is relatively reasonably priced for a prime tourist area. The motel was full but reception staff were friendly and attentive both on arrival and departure. Our room (a deck studio) was spacious, comfortable, pleasantly furnished and decorated and had all that we needed for self-catering (which we did on this occasion). We had a distant view of the glacier from our deck. The motel's laundry facilities were good with no charge (and detergent provided) for use of the washer and only a small charge for use of the dryer. The motel is near the village centre so only a short walk to shops and restaurants but we found it to be quiet during our stay.

    This is a nice little motel at the center of the city. Most restaurants are about a five minute walk away. The rooms are quite large and are equipped with a kitchenette, fridge and a spacious bathroom. Most rooms offer a nice view of the mountains. There is also a parking space right outside the room.

    The motel is easily located about 50m off the State Highway.You can park your car right in front of each unit, making it very convenient to carry in/out of your bulky luggages. Room is quite spacious with nice mountain view. Facilities are simple but meets all basic needs. There's in-room kitchenware for light cooking use. Free wifi is also available. It's within walking distance to the main road of the village, where most of glacier travel agencies, supermarket and restaurants are located. Overall this motel is highly recommended with all mentioned good points with very reasonable price
