Peaceful location, fabulous property, well equipped and very comfortable
Not keen on two single beds being zipped together as it makes sleeping in the middle quite uncomfortable but that's just a tiny glitch in an otherwise fantastic stay.
nice setting comfortable bed
Friendly helpful staff and very clean comfortable accommodation.
Nothing not to loke
Comfort of the beds. Friendliness of the management, cleanliness.
We were expecting a luxury retreat. The place is on the main road on the outskirts of Franz Josef, very close to the main road and more like a cabin park than a retreat. The cottage we were in smelled musty, the main bedroom was very small and only had one bedside table and lamp. Some of the down lighters in the main room didn't work. No dishwasher. The living room furniture was uncomfortable. Only one chair available to sit outside which is crazy when there are two guests. While wifi was free the router was not strong enough for some devices to pick up (iphone 5 and ipad 2) and the signal was intermittent.
great units so quiet peaceful location
a little way out of town
Hosts were extremely helpful - they helped us sort out some delayed baggage issues. The place also had all the facilities for a very comfortable stay (e.g. Laundry, kitchen, heaters, etc)
Friendly owners, well equipped room
Our room was near the road, so a bit noisy. Also a five minute drive from centre of Franz Josef
Amazing friendly staff/ owners... They even babysat my boys so we could go have a lovely dinner on our own... That was amazing we had a fabulous dinner and the boys had a great night too ... They loved the dog
Couldn't fault a thing
We booked one-bed chalet with use of one bedroom in a two-bed. Liked lots of windows and space for living.
Lack of a dishwasher!
Quiet, new, clean, kitchen facility, TV, car park, and staff.
Wi-Fi is poor. Was told it happened in the West Coast.
The location was tranquil and we were greeted by very friendly staff. The unit was spotless and the grounds are well kept. A little away from the town centre, but that suited us because we had a car. You wouldn't stay here if you didn't have a car.
Friendly owners, very quiet comfortable chalet and as 4km from Franz Josef - black nights! Only one of two places in Franz Josef that could offer two bedrooms as I travel with my adult. Could actually use soap provided as not highly scented.
Felt it was very pricey compared to other places I've stayed throughout New Zealand. For the price a dish washer would would have been nice.
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.
