This was a very spacious accommodation for our family. Very clean and comfortable. Full kitchen. Nice location close to Franz Joseph.
I like the location, very quiet and peaceful.
The bathroom is old and really needs some cleaning. Bedrooms also needed more cleaning.
Staff very friendly as we were arriving late our room was upgraded to make it easier for us to find our room. The room was lovely and clean, wished we could have stayed longer!
The toilet cistern wouldn't fill and the water kept running through the toilet. As soon as the staff were aware of the issue aware, they said they would fix it.
I was charged extra $10.00 for 100ml of milk....fip off
Nice place, clean, kind staff, place away from the noice of helikopters in the town
Furniture needed updating. Quite a way from village
Lovely accommodation just out if town .Clean, comfortable and well equipped . Hosts were extremely helpful .
welcoming friendly hosts who as soon as we got there showed us a map of the places where we could eat and the attractions in Franz Josef
quite concerning that there was no smoke alarms.
The spacious unit in the middle of the country not far away from the village
A little bit expensive
Each room own individual chalet with separate lounge so ideal for families
We were there Boxing Day and the bedroom was too warm for my husband so it would be lovely in winter
The big and modern rooms
Spacious and well equipped. Staf very friendly and helpful.
Modern and light cabins
Heating not great, only small fan heater
The staff managing the place was extremely rude. I don't recommend anyone to go there, really bad experience
Very friendly and helpful owners. Space for a family. Good facilities. Lovely spot
Might be good to have some cooling available since windows left open draw in the insects (or perhaps some insect screens)
lovely staffs gave us good recommendations of what to do around town. Beautiful cottage, cosy and clean.
too much mosquito
The host was gracious and quick to fix the problem in the room once I highlighted to them.
newly redecorated; hosts friendly & eager to serve/please. Quiet location just outside town proper. Free loaner movies, bottle of milk.
initially not very clean- we were first occupants post renovation. hosts remedied it quickly.
Furniture was broken and uncomfortable. Kitchen adequate but less equipped than in a similar priced motel in Greymouth. Floor creaked from age? No views from chalet in any direction. Asked to settle bill on arrival, first time in NZ after 20 years of travelling. Location was less central than website suggested.
The location was out of the bustle of town and the view to the mountains was clear. The facilities were clean and comfortable.
Great apartments (although you need a car to get there from town)
Loved where it is and the layout of the buildings, a really nice unit
This is not a dislike but there is no hanging space and drawers which the manager says they are rectifying. Loved it there.
close to the centre, very quiet,a lovely place.
