My experience at Bella Vista Franz Josef was brilliant. We were upgraded to an upstairs Mountain View Studio that had everything we could have needed for our 3 night stay The suudio was serviced each day. The view from the deck chairs outside our room looked up towards the Franz Josef Glacier valley, very dramatic, beautiful snow-caped mountains. I think the bed and beading were new, the little touches like decent plunger coffee, cookies, soaps, make up remover and soft & warm towels, thanks to the heated towel rail, really made us feel like we were special. Adam, our friendly and knowledgeable host helped us plan our 3 days of bush walks, horse riding and a breathtaking heli flight that left us feeling on top of the world, well NZ anyway! Some of the motel services we gratefully used included, Laundry, Free DVD's (finally saw Boy) fast cabled broadband connection, free towels for the hot pools (they charge $5 to use the ones at the pools) and a stash of big rain umbrellas were on hand. My wife made use of the book swap and many info brochures and drive guides in reception. On check out Adam had a useful guide of all the bush walks, travel times, cafe's and rest stops between Franz and Lake Wanaka, where our next stop was.
If you are staying in Franz Josef I do totally recommend Bella Vista Franz Josef to any traveler. We were so impressed we stayed in Bella Vista Motels for the remainder of our NZ holiday and they were all pretty good!
