Well I suppose I am quibbling, just do not expect that you are going to a villa in the Mediterranean sense of the word. Nearer a lodge in the English Lake District sense of the word. The lodge was spacious with separate sitting and dining areas and well equipped for self catering. It is situated a short distance out of...

Great place to stay just out of town so was wonderfully quiet. The lounge dining was spacious & kitchen was well appointed. The bathroom was very clean. We had a lovely 2 night stay & if back in the area this would again be our choice

This was our second stay here in 12 months. Good spacious lounge and comfortable sofas. Comfortable king size bed which does fill the room, but plenty of space in the lounge. Good size bathroom and walk in shower with basic fittings. Good kitchen facilities. Location out of town so you need a car to go in. Unfortunately on both occasions...

We stayed here for just one night, and that was certainly not enough. This is a beautiful place to stay with one-bedroom and two-bedroom villas that are very well-appointed, spacious and comfortable. The living area, kitchen and dining area are very spacious, and so is the bathroom. The kitchen has everything you might need to cook or eat. It was...

Drove today from Picton down to Franz Josef and arrived just prior to the reception at Glenfern closing up. Your breakfast is essentially a tick and bash exercise, which is subsequently delivered to your room through your front door in baskets. Spacious living area, two sofa', television, table and chairs, fridge, hob and masses of storage for shopping and the...

Given that you are on a driving holiday moving from place to place the one thing you need is a comfortably sized bedroom. This accommodation has the smallest bedroom that we have had in three weeks. Given the space in the rest of the property I would have imagined some footage taken off the living area. If you are out...

This hotel is outside of Franz Josef in a beautiful setting with the mountains behind it. Lots of twisting and turning on the roads on our drive from Haast to Franz Josef; will take a little longer driving then you think. The unit was separated into living area with dining table and kitchen and sitting area with the bedroom in...

After a long drive from Greymouth arriving into Glenfern Villas was an absolute delight. It was exactly what we were wanting. Good sized villa with a separate bedroom, large bathroom, good sized kitchen and a lovely lounge with magnificent views of the mountains. It had all the amenities we needed and was close enough to the township. The weather wasn't...

Beautiful villas to stay at. The staff is highly friendly and leaves no stone unturned to make your stay comfortable. location wise is very close to Franz Josef. However, here is no restaurant or n house dining facility. You may cook your food. Breakfast is given in the evening itself and you are required to cook the same. However the...

Very nice and large accommodation, at a farm just out of town. Good and quiet hideout, perfectly located for visiting the Franz Josef glacier. The only thing that should be improved is the Wifi system. Very impractical, unreliable and slow.
