We arrived at Franz Josef in the pouring rain. The manager was very helpful and kind and gave us accomodation for the two children for free, as I had originally only booked for two adults by mistake! He was so accomodating and welcoming, it was wonderful to have such great service. We were given the cottage facing the mountains and when the sun came out briefly the scenary was stunning. The mountains in NZ are amazing, particularly with the background of the fleeting blue sky and the snow capped mountains. The cottage itself is comfortable, clean and very functional. The children loved the upstairs loft room and the high ceilings gave the apartment/cottage a lovely perspective. Gardens were well maintained and the boys loved the trampoline at the back - a good way to expend their energy after the five hour road trip from Queenstown. Be warned though :) Franz Josef receives buckets of rain and is one of the wettest regions in NZ.
