"Great hotel new Franz Josef glacier"
We stayed here two nights while visiting Franz Josef Glacier. Friendly staff, amazing 5 course dinners included. Close to all activities on the glacier. The room was very clean and quiet. Nice view of the surrounding mountains and glacier.

High class hotel, at the glacier!
Great hotel. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for... Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very nice rooms. Breakfast and dinner was included with our stay. Really good meals. Great location near Franz Joseph glacier. Also had the best massage I've ever had at the spa in the hotel.

A couple nights in a West Coast retreat
We stayed here for two nights while staying in the Franz Josef area. While a on the pricey side, do keep in mind that you get breakfast and dinner included. Overall, while the facilities are nice and the food is solid, I felt that it was a touch on the pricey side compared to the money being paid. Given that facilities in the area are split between relatively no-frills hotels and a higher-end accommodation like Te Waonui, though, that is to be expected. The hotel service was very good (turndown included bottled water and chocolates each night), and the room's WiFi worked well (the public WiFi less so). I would stay here again if I passed through the area.
