Need more tour option for those unable or unwilling to pay for Heli tours...not very environmentally friendly for the glacier. With the bridge not allowing pedestrians, notmanyoptions forthose who wanted to do some hiking.
Beautiful little town nestled beneath the majestic mountains. Just enough restaurants to provide a good variety of quality food. Easy access to hikes or helicopter trips to the glacier. Nice hot pools. Great B and B, Holly Homestead!
Went down to the river and collected the water. Need another takeaway cafe, as once we had come out of hot pools, we didn;t want to go to the pub, we wanted takeaways to go back to the room with, and we missed the Indian cafe and the four corner store closes at 9.00pm.
Great place to stay for all of the experiences on offer. Did the 40 minute helicopter flight over the glaciers and the landing on a snowfield. Unbelievable experience. Great restaurants and lits to do.
Glow Worm Accommodation had some nice extras, like "free" international calls and hot soup in evening, but I paid significantly more to stay there than I did other places. Right around corner from Kiwi Centre, which had discount for people staying at motel. About 10 km from Franz Josef Glacier and nature walks. No fan or a/c in room, necessitating opening sliding door in front (no security) until room cooled down. No hook or place to hang clothes in room.
Helicopter flight was awesome. Glow worms next too old church completely underated and needs some upgrading and signage but could be 100 x better than the dell outside Hokitika and a great attraction for Franz Joseph.

The property had a nice location, just one street back from the Main Street, within walking distance to several restaurants and shops and the major tourist center with hot pools and glacier guides is across the street. The staff are friendly and kind. The room is nicely sized with a small table for eating, a fairly well stocked kitchenette, and a nice bathroom with insanely good water pressure and nice toiletries. Parking is convenient and free and laundry is available if needed.

This hostel has a lot of rooms spread out in a couple buildings. There is a well stocked spacious kitchen, lounge, and dining area. Breakfast of cereal, milk, juice, toast, jam, and yogurt was provided. Our room was small with ensuite toilet and shower. Everything was clean. Good location for hiking the Franz Josef Glacier tracks and for helicopter rides.

Location was great for Franz Josef glacier guides base. Room (gecko lodge 2) was good - spacious and clean plus nice views out onto the rainforest. Spa pool was nice and wasn’t crowded as it is only for those in the gecko lodges so we had it to ourselves. Bar/restaurant on site was great.
