Our touring holiday of north & south New Zealand was organised by a travel company and all our accomodation pre booked. In our original itinery we were in a lodge in the heart or Franz Josef. On arrival in New Zealand we found some of our accomodation had been changed, this being one of them and were a little dissapointed. That is untill we checked in. We had already checked out the original accomodation and although it was in the heart of everything it was also srrounded by everything, ie, other motels, coach parks and restaurants.
Glenfern is a little outside of town but no more than 5 minutes by car. The villas are modern, spacious, spotlessly clean and more than adequately equiped. You have your own parking bay outside of your door, a seated decking area outside of the patio doors, surrounded by countryside, a small holding with alpacca and ours had a view to die for.
Cesar ( hope this is the correct spelling ) one of the joint managers, greeted us on arrival and could not have been more helpful. Tips on the best places to go for views and eating and a local map were supplied with an enthusiasm that only comes from someone who takes enormous pride in their job and establishment.
My only dissapointment was the fact we were only staying for one night. We could have stayed and relaxed for days !
