The room was really cold and could not get it warm, had to sleep with lots of clothes on and extra planket. Other than that it was ok stay.

Pros: Plenty of room to cook and relax.
Cons: Refurbish it.
Location: The walk/climb to Devils Punchbowl Falls was well worth going.
The weather wasn't good, no real experience as only stay overnight.

Cost effective stay at the Glacier

Posted Apr 3, 2017 on Wotif
Family of four visiting Frans Josef. Room we clean but beds uncomfortable. Very basic. Staff were helpful with bookings and aided us to get a glacier flight on helicopter - much appreciated. Kids enjoyed pool table in communal area. Could do with a face lift and tidy of surrounds.

hotel close to town and mountains

Posted Oct 19, 2016
Pros: As stated above the shower was amazing.. better than some motels that cost way more. Situation was great. Cost was brilliant.
Cons: Teach your staff to use a vacuum cleaner. Clean sheets would be a plus (mine had a wads of someone else's all over it.)
Location: Location was Franz Josef glacier, location is amazing. That is not your problem here.
The hotel was below standard the beds were comfortable but the sheets were horrible and the floor had not been cleaned the television was in the wrong place in the room and couldn't see it. the bathroom was clean and the shower was excellent.

I had a wonderful stay. The only small criticism, is that maybe the room could have been aired a little during the day.
