“Cheap stays for glacier country visits.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

I stayed in a standard cabin when I stayed here. For the extremely cheap price I got a big room with a double and bunks (which I didn't use), a dining table & chairs, a fridge and coffee & tea making facilities. It was clean, the bathroom/showers and kitchen were not far away. The bathrooms were large and clean and didn't feel like you were in a camp site. It is a short drive out of the city centre, but walking would be a little inconvenient if it were raining.

We had 2 nights here and were happy with the location and the facilities. Eating outside with snow capped mountain views was very pleasant.The spa was greatly appreciated. however the room smelt stale and had to be aired for much of the day.

Booked into the Franz Josef Top 10 holiday park for 2 nights while touring the South Island in a motorhome. The park is lovely and quiet, great motorhome sites and the modern amenities block very clean. The views of the mountains just take your breath away, such a scenic place to stay. When we were there, it was quite busy, and we had to wait for a shower but everyone was very friendly. The park manager and staff were very helpful and nice. Sadly we had to travel to Fox to do our Glacier tour, as Franz Josef was closed to walk-in tours when we were there, but still enjoyed out stay at the park. One word of warning - don't borrow the loan bicycles, we found them quite dangerous on our cycle into the village. The staff apologized and said they would look into getting them fixed. Otherwise, a fantastic stay, would recommend this park highly.

We spent 4 nights at the Franz Josef TOP 10. The unit was well equipped and comfortable. The only negative was the noise made by the hot water heater from time to time. There is a self-guided rain forest trail on the grounds of the school next door and deep rain forest a short walk down the road exiting the rear of the Park.

I recently stayed at the Franz Josef Top 10 Holiday Park with my sister and a friend. The accommodation is in a really convenient location, with very helpful reception staff.

Beware - lots of bugs around the area, so don't leave windows open when lights on.

The TV was good, kitchen area well-equipped, and nice modern shower/bathroom.

I bought a $5 internet card for use for 24hrs but it worked for about 15minutes. I took it back the next day and the guy at reception gave me a refund straight away.

Overall, this was great accommodation and I would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.

This a great location, about 20 minutes walk into town.
The staff, especially Johann, are outstanding. We had a bit of a disaster with our motor home (long story!!) and had to move into a chalet. The admin and move were made so much easier because of Johan's help. Nothing was too much trouble ...brilliant helpfulness. The chalet was a very high standard and very good value.
The facilities are very good too ...a good laundry, good communal kitchens and clean showers and toilets.

Room Tip: All seemed good!!
