Service was friendly and pleasant
The room, it was expensive for what it we got with minimal facilities.
Staff welcoming was very good. We had everything we needed
The rain unable to see glaciers
Friendly helpful staff
No heated towel rail
Not far to 'town' centre. Keas visited in the evening.
Stains on the duvet, clearly not washed.Sky TV was advertised but you only got one movie channel and Discovery and not even all of the normal NZ programs. Very low water pressure. Pretty noisy at night. For $ 175 a night I'd have expected better.
Staff were friendly & helpful, rooms were clean & comfortable. They even provided umbrellas for our use while we were there.
Had everything plus designated 'rain forest' private outdoor area for relaxing drinks. Punga Grove was the icing on the cake after Franz Josef. Good people.
Probably should have stayed one more night.........
Set amongst rainforest outside our lounge room, lovely sitting on the patio. Owner was very friendly and helpful and the place was clean and tidy.
Overdid the air freshener prior to arrival, quite overwhelming for sensitive noses.
On arriving our hosts were so friendly and helpfull we knew this was a wise choice in accomodation.Our upgraded room was just a delight, clean, comfortable and delightfully warmed with a gas (log) heater.Exellently appointed,we could have stayed much longer.However we Will go back.
Nothing at all
Friendly welcome & restaurant advice. Lovely quiet setting close to town facilities.
Room was upgraded and had a patio with a view of the rain forest. Bbreakfast we ordered was very large. Bernie was wonderful to talk with,
Great location, close to shops and the glacier. Nice and warm place, felt very homely after a long drive. Friendly staff.
Our accommodation was beautiful, and the hostess Bernie was amazing! So friendly and helpful!
That we were only available to stay one night! If time permitted us, we would have loved to have stayed longer :)
Our room was enormous and it was situated close to everything.
Location was good, walk to town. Parking was great & staff were friendly.
A bit noisy with other units slamming doors.
Stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. spacious, beds comfortable. Staff amazing, very helpfull. Close to glacier.
Friendly, great location
Size of apartment Comfortable and clean We checked in early.
Staff & location
2 rings on the cooker did not work. Decor a bit tired. All the heat went up to the mezzanine bedroom so too hot up there and cold downstairs.
Very helpful staff. It is clean and fully equipped. Just behind the main street.
Kitchen facilities are a bit old. Nothing else really for a motel.
Very Nice rooms, very homely.
It was the ideal base for our 'helihike' on Franz Josef glacier.
I liked the nice big room and it was perfect because we could just leave our car just in front of the door which was really good with our big suitcases.
Very friendly young couple managing this property. In town so is handy to everything.Great place to stay to enjoy a magnificent part of the world.
Excellent location and spacious rooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the needed tools. We especially like the design of glass wall in the living room, that corner is my favorite place to enjoy the view of rain forest while having a cup of coffee. The last but most worth mentioning is the hostess is very kind and helpful, I'm very happy to borrowed a DVD "the piano" from her and watched at night as we will visit the movie shooting site the Kerakera beach days later. Thanks for the great living experience.
