Franz Josef TOP 10 Holiday Park
Reviewed 5 May 2014

The site is great: we had motorhomes and they placed us (our son and family and my husband and me) together. Wonderful views all around. Excellent kitchen and laundry facilities, and things for children to amuse themselves. They managed to care for us during cyclone; hats off to them. also booked meal for us in town.

..this one was not the worst, but also not the best. Unit was clean and comfortable. We had a lodge unit (bunks in bedroom, double bed in main room + table/chairs, and separate bathroom running off the bedroom.) However the shared kitchen/lounge facility was freezing cold with no heating supplied, was a bit smelly and we saw a couple of mice scurrying around. All of which made us decide to go out for dinner!

Bumpy road to the camp site, our stuff were all on the ground by the time we parked. Location a little off to the main centre than we had expected. But very good facilities such as the kitchen and showers.

Franz Josef Top 10 Holiday Park is located at State Highway 6 and next to Waiho river. The town was named in 1865 after the Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I (1830-1916). You find the town centre at 1.5 kms from the park.

Because of the glacier and the mountains Franz Josef is rather touristic. The small town has several motels & camper parks and a choice of restaurants, tourist shops & adventure organizers including helicopter flights over the glacier.

The park offers cabins, studio units and powered & unpowered sites. We had a powered site with a view of the snowcapped mountains. The park is adequate and quiet. Facilities encompass a reception annex info room, spacious free showers, kitchen, dining area, TV & games room, internet room, spa, BBQ and laundry. All is clean and well maintained. The park roads are gravel and surprisingly full of potholes. Wi-Fi internet is extra.

Staffs were friendly. Considering its location we found the caravan park reasonable value for what it offers and an OK place to stay.

We stayed in Kitchen Cabin in mid April, 2014. We stayed there since we had booked and paid. Otherwise, we could have stayed in different bigger place. The place is dirty. Needed good cleaning. TV is very old. Curtains do not shut properly and some hooks were broken. Although it is a kitchen cabin, you have to ise each appliance one by one as there is not enough space at all. Luckily we had to stay there only one night.

We stayed one night at a powered campervan site. We found the shared facilities clean and comfortable. Facilities were conveniently located. Staff were friendly. Views were great and would definitely return if I visit the area again.
