Having a stand alone building meant there was less chance of being disturbed by others. The view from my room was amazing.

Amazing Franz Joseph.
Absolutely amazing. We had such a lovely time in your wee town, we did everything except going to the Glaciers. May be when my granddaughter gets a bit more adventurous. The outlook and surroundings were amazing. We struck amazing weather to help us explore more.

8/10 Very good

Clean well appointed space close to village and good access to walks and nature. We were frustrated that roading crew in adjoining cottage parked a trailer full of industrial equipment right in front of our window. The view from our window was completely obscured and, although we were out exploring for the days we stayed, it was not possible for us to use the small deck and parking in our allocated space was tight. The management were aware of the parking situation but didn't address it. With the low tourist numbers they probably are glad of repeat business from tradies and road workers but should also consider the needs of those on holiday - we won't stay here again. We will be back to Franz Joseph as soon as we can though - it is a wilderness paradise

10/10 Exceptional

Excellent stay. Room comfortable and nice. View good and a great price. I enjoyed my stay. Left phone charger behind and they couriered back to my home. The only issue was sink tap showing signs of wear needing repair and as we had a 4 night stay the room was not really cleaned well as crumbs left of floor after room service. Over all I would stay there again and recommend to others
