    The best parts were certainly the location in Franz Josef and the excellent food and service in the restaurant . Food was great and the hotel staff were extremely helpful.

    The decor was poor, there were smells in corridors that were not pleasant and the place needs a facelift to support the good service and staff that were continuously helpful.

    The hotel staff was lovely and wonderfull assistance.

    The dining room smelled horrible, like a toilet. It's very off-putting while eating a meal. The hotel needs some reservations, a bit more modern. And mabey room service would be a good idea

    the view of glacier from bedroom window

    No spa facilities,restaurant on site not open, reception on site not open, no internet on site - could be due to time of year of stay.

    Hotel situated in a great location near to the glacier with lots of good restaurants within metres. Hotel room very well equipped and very warm which was welcoming as it was freezing when we arrived. Hotel staff were so friendly and helpful too. Definitely stay there again when visiting the area.
