Splendid service - at the heart of Franz Josef
Upgraded, service & location
Actually, when we checked in, the staff informed us that we were upgraded to their sister resort, Te Waonui just across the road, and it was a pleasant surprise! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, service was good, and the room was splendid - and the atmosphere was serene - a great way to count down into the new year!

Good hotel. Great location.
Location, just off the highway so it's quiet, and centrally located. Good but expensive breakfast buffet.
The hotel is right in the middle of the village and close to everything...the Glacier Guides office, hot springs, Kiwi museum (rip-off!) and the restaurants.

Overrated hotel
Excellent location and food
Housekeeping needs to be improved. We stayed for 3nites but toiletries were not replenished. Room is very small and is definitely not worth the $300+ per night stay.
