This was an amazing experience at this accommodation you had breathtaking beautiful views from every window of the ice coated mountains and it was in a semi farm setting so there were horses in their paddocks and there were a couple of very friendly puppies that would come to visit..

The rooms were perfect, very clean and essential amenities that were required the heating was comfortable as were the beds in the 2 bedroom cottage.

We utilised the washing machine and dryer free of charge and Wifi was free and available up until 10pm when it turned off and restarted in the morning..

Checkout was very relaxed and the family that owned and ran the cottages were very friendly and accommodating

We would definitely return for another stay at the Glacier Cottages

Room Tip: There is a view from all of the rooms

Magic views of surrounding country of Mountain, River & Glacier. Quiet, peaceful spot. 3 cottages
in all. We had the large one(, baby with us) We let ourselves in, as key in door & note. Everything supplied, and very comfortable. We had miniature horses for company over the fence. I don't think I would ever "get tired" of looking out the window. Only 2klm into Franz
Joseph.

Room Tip: There is not a bad one. Just be aware that only one cottage is large.

What a great little spot! I will come here again and again, and wouldnt bother staying directly in town.
The views are breathtaking as you sit above the river looking directly at the glacier mountain surrounded by pony paddocks.
We were upgraded to a larger cottage right next to the little ponies which my 12 month old son loved.
The cottages are very clean and warm with great kitchenette facilities.
wow wow wow

We stayed here for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from outside the room was great. Very relaxing and not far from the township of Franz Josef (about 2Km). Everything we needed for our stay was there. We especially enjoyed the river in front of the cottage (about 100M away). My daughter and I enjoyed the walk there and photo opportunities. We stayed in Unit 1 which was quite new and well looked after. Well priced and would recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in Unit 1, which was in a very good condition with great views.

Arrived to a note at reception saying key was in our cabin door. Cabin itself had breathtaking views that were only complimented by the gentle gurgling of the creek just nearby. Condition of the cabin was wonderful, spacious, comfortable, clean and warm. The two minutes it took to drive in to town was not an issue, and easily had a better view then many of the other hotels we saw. Only strange thing was that we went looking for the staff again later that evening, as well as the following morning; and saw hide nor hair of them. Didn't really matter, our stay was really lovely and the view was better then we could have dreamed.
