The Terrace Motel

15 Cowan St, Franz Josef Glacier, New Zealand, 7886 - View the map

The Terrace offers spacious hotel and motel style rooms in a quiet location yet is still the closest motel to the centre of Franz Josef.

The quality family owned Hotel, Motel and Apartment style accommodation in the centre of Franz Josef, makes The Terrace the ideal choice for a few nights holiday in the spectacular glacier region.

Our accommodation is set amidst views of snow capped mountains and rainforest covered hills, along with views of the Croz Glacier and the Franz Josef Glacier Valley. Please note not all rooms offer views. We also offer unlimited free wifi so you can share the photos you have taken and stay in contact with friends and family.

We are the closest Motel to the West Coast Wild Life Centre and the Free Glow Worm caves and only a 4 minutes stroll to the Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools. Next to our Motel reception is one of Franz Josef's best restaurants giving you all the benefits of a Franz Josef Hotel at a great price (several other good restaurants catering for all budgets are within 2 minutes walk).

The Terrace also offers the onsite Alice May restaurant managed by two of Franz Josef's most experienced restauranteurs.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our Motel in the heart of Franz Josef and sharing with you our knowledge of the many of the wonderful activities on offer, please ensure you allow enough time to enjoy all this region has to offer, from:

- scenic helicopter flights,
- glacier hot pools,

(home of New Zealand's rarest Kiwi),
