      IMHO, hotel is a very overpriced - i paid 170NZD for the room, while in Queenstown i paid just 250NZD for two bedroom/bathroom apartments at Oak Shores with lakeview! Here for company of three i had to book two rooms so i end up paying 340NZD. I would say that this hotel needs serious bathroom upgrade - everything is very old and outdated.

      Overpriced and rooms need upgrade

      The location is good and the hospitality is goo too.The rooms are well equipped and are really comfortable.

      The staff reacted well to the few questions and needs that we had during our stay. The setting was stunning!

      The weather but not the hotel's fault. Ambience spoilt a little by the number of coach parties staying at the hotel - always seemed to be groups of people milling around and smoking

      The location is a short walk to the Hot Springs, and right in town a close walk to all operators. We could see the Glacier from our window when the clouds lifted. Staff gave clear direction to requests, were very helpful and converted credit card payment to home currency.

      Great location for glacier

      Bed uncomfortable, very saggy

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      We were lucky enough to get a room with a view of the mountains.Even though it was on the street side the view was worth it.The street was very quiet by 11pm.

    • Older travelers

      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.

    • Couple
      5.4

      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 location, close to glacier, the friendliness and helpfulness of staff.
