Cabin spacious, comfortable and quiet. Nice sitting area outside. BBQ facilities. Great location just a short drive from town. Wi fi connectivity poor at times if that is important to you. Friendly staff.

Paid for a basic cabin and that's what we got. Facilities ok although could do with some new bbqs. Quiet for a Top 10. Lovely views of the mountains. About 1.5 kms from town and sell next to nothing but store in town has everything you'd need. Free Wifi.

This was a basic 2 room motel room. Small kitchen. Terrible spongy bed and no windows screens so watch the sand flies which are very prolific. Located out of town so you really need transport. There is a barbecue area and other facilities. Which we didn't use.

We stayed here in a 2 bed motel unit for 2 nights whilst in the area to visit the glaciers etc. A friendly welcome and free wi fi (which didn't work too well in the unit) but we used the reception phone to call and make sure we were OK for the next morning with the helicopter company the night...

The facilities were filthy - need to be cleaned more regularly - not just once a day. For campers staying 2 or more nights as we were not having clean facilities to use was unacceptable - the kitchen benches were not wiped down and rubbish from breakfast not cleaned until just before 1pm. No toilet paper in some of the...

Having stayed in Top10s before, I was disappointed by poor standards at Franz Josef. Our standard cabin was fine and clean apart from a slightly musty smell. However, the bathrooms were not in good condition. A couple of locks were broken so doors wouldn't close, and toilets were frequently dirty. I found it very odd that you had to pay...

We stayed 3 weeks in NZ and stayed mostly at top 10 parks. This was the oldest property of all of them. Staff is excellent - friendly and helpful. We stayed in an en suite unit. It was very cramped. Adequate would be the description. It was clean but not up to the standards of other top tens

We stayed at the very end of November and it basically felt like a construction site. Wife was looking forward spa but spa not in working condition. I like Top 10 franchise but I would not recommend a stay here until renovations are done. Wish business or reviewers here had alerted me...

We came with a campervan and got a powered site near the kitchen area. Our stay consists mostly of sleep, showers and food and by these we rate a place. The showers were clean, spacious and with many hooks. The kitchen area is large, many tables and lots of gas stoves and sinks.

Firstly don't book to stay here if you are looking for a little luxury, this is a 'get what you pay for' kind of place a few minutes drive from town. Our room was basic but it suited our needs for one night, bed was comfy, bathroom was very small and water pressure wasn't great (you are up a mountain...
