What a fabulous place!! We were welcomed by Kaz and her faithful "companion" Benson and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night luxurious stay in this beautiful accommodation. Our spacious suite did not disappoint in any way and set the benchmark for the rest of our holiday in the scenic South Island. Breakfasts were scrumptious and evenings in the wonderful lounge were...

Wonderful setting, fab rooms and friendly staff. We were lucky enough to take advantage of the June special and it was certainly worth the money! The room was very well kept and warm, the bathroom spacious and inviting. We will definitely return.

This Lodge is about 2km north of Franz Josef so very well located. The lodge is of log cabin construction and has about 9 suites in all set in attractive grounds. Although it does not do evening meals the owner arranged for a local restaurant to collect us and bring us back after the meal. The breakfast served was excellent....

We stayed only one night at this good motel-style B&B. After the family-style B&Bs we had been spoiled by this far on the trip, this place was impersonal, more like a good Best Western. The room was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent, order taken and served by a waitress.

The rooms here are nice and the bathrooms are amazing--huge shower and bathtub. The setting is very pretty and the staff are friendly. The location is very convenient too--right off the main road. But for the price, I would expect a bit more in terms of the included breakfast, especially the coffee. Everywhere we went in NZ, the coffee was...

The Westwood is a lovely place with very spacious and cozy wooden rooms, very clean. The common area is a gorgeous place with excellent decoration and a delicious garden. We arrived late in the afternoon and we were stoned the morning after with the views of the Franz Joseph glacier.

We enjoyed a lovely stay here. The room was large, comfortable, and impeccably clean. We found the hot breakfast delicious. The gathering room with its soaring views of the glacier was exceptional. We would recommend this for a visit to Franz Josef.

We had a two night stay towards the end of our long tour in New Zealand, by then it had become easy to be tired of B & B accomodation but Westwood Lodge is just the ticket. Our coach house room was enormous, large comfortable bed, a big sitting area and a small patio. The bathroom is gigantic and perhaps...

Our New Zealand agent booked this B&B and we were delighted.. The rooms are large, well appointed, and modern. The grounds are beautifully gardened, and the common areas are large and cozy. A couple recommended hotels will pick you up and return you to the lodge, a great service.
