In order to visit the glasier, we opted to stay a night at Bella Vista Franz Josef. Well it was really a great choice. We were given 2 connecting rooms with kitchen facilities in one of them.
Unfortunately the weather was bad and it was raining continuously, so not much option for outdoor activities. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and suggested us some DVDs for viewing instead.
Overall, I will give it the thumbs up for this motel.
Kitchen facilites - good
Rooms - clean and bed comfortable
Location is within the Franz Josef village, so easy to get groceries or access to nearby food outlets.
Great place to stay when in Franz Josef.
