This was a great stay while we visited Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand, a trip that we will always look back on with great joy. We loved our stay here. We were close to two glaciers actually, I believe the Fox Glacier was the other. there were some very good restaurants nearby as well.

Date of stay: November 2017

Hi Joseph K
Thank you for taking the time to provide such a positive review. You're correct in that Fox Glacier is other glacier in this area, about 30 minutes drive south from Franz Josef. Fantastic that you've enjoyed your time here in glacier country.
Regards, Lesley, Assistant Manager

This Hotel really impressed me, from the check in process, the helpful staff and the super comfortable bed. Really nice room with tasteful decor and the food in the restaurant was delightful. Lovely and quiet, stunning bird song and a very relaxing stay. Highly recommend.

We stayed in an interconnecting superior room with balcony overlooking the mountains. We have been in hotels all over the South Island and the beds and rooms here are the most comfortable I have come across!!
Big tv, free wifi and easy access to the shops, restaurants and daily hikes.
We were so pleasantly surprised. Big recommend!

I did enjoy my stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly, the room was lovely. The restaurant was very good for buffet and dinner. The only thing that sux was being able to hear the pub across the road. They seem go quiet down around midnight. This wasn't even during a busy stay either. With that being said I would still stay again.

Dear Eloise O
Thank you for commenting on your stay, we appreciate hearing from our guests and it is nice to hear that you would return. Being in close proximity to the town amenities does make some noise unavoidable, however we are happy to assist in any way we can should it be brought to our attention at the time.
Kind regards, Lesley, Assistant Manager
