A Home Away From Home

58 on Cron is situated in the heart of Franz Josef.  With snow-capped mountains as a backdrop and surrounded by some of New Zealand's most beautiful rainforests and glaciers, experience awe-inspiring natural beauty, right from the front door of your cozy and comfortable room.

We have outdoor BBQ facilities and plenty of space.  Get on the glacier for a heli-hike, go sky-diving, kayaking, fishing, horse-back or ATV quad bike riding... whatever takes your fancy.  A great place to relax, unwind and have a great time!

This is the perfect time to gather your adventure gear and get outdoors!  

Revel in our great and diverse New Zealand countryside.

What should I know?

Do you supply breakfast?

We can supply a continental breakfast that can be ordered the night before. Our town restaurants and cafes offer superb cooked breakfasts and can also provide packed lunches for your tour or walk.

Do we need cold weather gear?

Franz Josef is in a rainforest, which means it can be very wet. We suggest that you bring a good, all-seasons wet weather jacket. During the winter months of June through October, you should bring warm winter clothing.

Note: All the tour operators supply the correct clothing and footwear for their activities.

Do you allow dogs at your motel?

Pets and animals are not permitted at the Motel.
