Holly Homestead B&B, Franz Josef Glacier
Very nice B & B.
Great B&B in small town of Franz Joseph. Hostess, Bernie was welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. We stayed in the large suite which was comfortable with plenty of space. Breakfast was great with 3 other couples to share travel info with.

One of the best b&b’s I’ve stayed in.
When we first saw the b&b from the outside we thought it looked a bit Victorian. But from the moment Bernie greeted us to showing us our room, we were mesmerized. Everything in our room was pretty modern and the bathroom was in excellent condition and very clean. We are quite sticklers when it comes to clean accommodations, but they definetly have met the standards. We are also quite introverted, but Bernie made us feel welcomed and we eventually met her husband Gerard who was our breakfast chef and the breakfast was delicious. I have stayed in many b&b’s and this is definetly one of our top 3. We booked the bedroom suite with its own living room. The bed was very comfortable. I am a light sleeper, but I slept very well. Also because we didnt know much about the area, Bernie gave us wonderful hiking, driving and lunch suggestions. She also put our luggages on the luggage rack (which are quite heavy and w/o our knowledge which is an added touch). We would of never asked anybody to do that. Thats what many 5-star hotels do..didnt expect it from a b&b. Overall, A+ and if anybody is ever in the area, I would definetly recommend them to everyone.
