We stayed in a tree hut which was spacious, clean and had modern bathroom facilities and a comfy King bed. The Holiday Park is located within the township of Franz Josef - so a short walk to shops, cafes and restaurants.
My only complaint with our stay was that the log cabins walls let in a lot of noise from outside - and with the Holiday Park being packed with tour groups and others there was noise from cars, foot steps (on crunchy gravel) and voices moving past our cabin from early in the morning to late at night. A cabin further away from the reception/entrance would have been quieter - or invest in some sort of sound proofing - it was like the walls weren't there!!
