    The host was friendly. The location was superb.

    Be very careful when you are cooking inside your self-contained room. I accidentally triggered the fire alarm.

    The value was great. The room came with a lot of kitchenette amenties.

    There was a certain smell in the place but I realized it was similar to other places that housed winter sports / winter activities.

    I found the owner/staff very friendly and informative

    We stayed at a number of motel/appartments in new Zealand and found that the $200per night charged for this queen room with a very small kitchenette and bathroom, was over priced in comparison to others we stayed in. If the tarrif had been cheaper I would not have a complaint.

    Owned and run by a couple with excellent attitude to serve. We reached at 12 midnight after a 7 hr drive and arrangements made by them to ensure that our rooms were ready, heated etc were great. We just stepped in and all formalities happened next day. We were with 2 kids aged 8 & 4 and found the place very comfortable to stay.

    Superb

    The owners were very helpful with finding medical attention when needed, and were kind and welcoming. The room was spacious, and clean.

    Their internet didn't work while we were there, but we were able to access the wireless of the hostel next door from our room, for a fee.

    Exceptional

    The owners were fantastic! We checked in really late at about 10pm but they still kept the room for us (room was not pre-paid) and i'm sure rejecting people during the day. After checkout, they were very helpful in assisting us to book activities for the day at Franz. As the quad bike line wasn't manned, they left a message and gave us a reservation voucher. When we arrived at another outlet for our glazier flights, owners at Cron actually called them to tell us our quad bike timings are confirmed. They even told them that we are planning to drive to Greymouth after the quad bike, thus putting us on an earlier timing!

    Very good

    Location was good-Near Franz Joseph Glacier. Room was good size and on ground floor which we requested. We got there late so they taped the room key to the office door which was convenient. They made several recommendations for the next town we were visiting which was helpful.

    Room was a bit pricy, but I guess they can charge higher prices as housing is limited near the glaciers.
