I stayed here with my husband and 2 kids in a campervan. We found it to be one of the better places we stayed over the 2 week period we were travelling. Facilities were clean and spacious, the fact there was a great sized bath in the family room was a massive plus in our book! Games and TV rooms...

We are a group of 4, and requested for 2 double bed. Even though the configuration was one bedroom apartment, the two beds were separated by the kitchen and allowed enough privacy for 2 couples. We arrived late at night and managed to get a good night sleep. Apartment was well-equipped with a very bright shower room.

We stayed in feb 2017 for a night, drove from Queens town to the Franz Josef, located little out of the village but if you have a car this wont matter. 10 on 10 on location & Cleanness. Great Staff at the reception helped us with what to do in town. Helped with weather updated for the trek to the...

The park is a little way out of town, but on site the facilities are some of the best I've come across during a 2 week trip. Very large kitchen area, which is clean and tidy. Mix of small and large shower cubicles/rooms which were well maintained. And if you chose a good spot for your tent, you get glimpses...

Would advise find somewhere else to stay. Very expensive $46 for a tent site for 2 ppl. Fridges barely less than ambient temp, facilities not clean, lots of appliances not working eg stoves, hair dryers, oven doors that dont close. Many boggy tent pitches. Minimal facilities eg only 1 fridge in each kitchen. Will never return here.

We stayed on our recent camper van trip around the South Island. The staff were very welcoming and helpful when it came to booking a tour. You can see the glacier from the camp site if the clouds are high enough.

Stayed in the kitchen cabins for 2 nights to explore both Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. The cabin was much more than we expected - just like a studio motel but without a bathroom (shared shower/toilet block was only a short walk under a covered veranda). Has a 2 element cooker, microwave, cooking utensils, crockery etc. under bench fridge, and...

We only stayed here for one night, due to the weather, but would have liked to have stayed longer. We stayed on a non powered tent pitch. The owner was honest and helpful regarding the upcoming weather, and we found her really welcoming. I believe she has only been there for 5 weeks, and she was great. The kitchen and...

To begin with our room was double booked. We arrived and found another family had been allocated the room and had started cooking. It was cold and were were tired from a long drive that day. The staff apologized but the supervisor wasn't overly apologetic. So I hinted that it would be a nice gesture to be offered a complimentary...
