Great location and facilities booked in for one night and stayed two. Facilities were clean and well appointed, we were in a campervan and used the bathrooms and the kitchen for washing dishes only but it looked good with dining area and bbqs outside as well. Each camper van site backed into the trees so the surroundings were lovely. Easy access to both Franz and fox glaciers which we did and had a great meal at the restaurant on the corner down from the resort. Fellow campers were from many parts of the globe and all considerate. Take your sand fly repellent, it is the west coast! Highly recommend and would return to this camp again.

We stayed for one night in a double room on the ground floor. Reception gave us a pint of milk when we arrived just what we needed to make a cup of tea after a long drive. The room was small but fine for just sleeping in. The fridge was quite noisy so we just turned it off. The bed was very comfortable and location central.

Clean rooms and super comfortable beds. It's kind of crowded with the motel, camper van park, and hostel though. Stayed in a tree lodge which was more secluded. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The only part I didn't particularly care for was the crowdedness.

The room room was smaller than a hotel room, but was very comfortable, cozy even. The bathroom was nice - only didn't like that the window was right at the staircase to the upper level. Really enjoyed our stay!

Great location, rubbish wifi, good facilities. Definitely recommend. Walking distance to the town. The site has a bar/club which is very sociable and a free spa. It's set in a forest and has a very natural and relaxing feel to it. We had a secluded bay for the camper which made it private.

We stayed 2 nights on a powered site and they are very private, lots of vegetation.
Good location in Franz Josef, 5 minutes walk from the main street.
Kitchen and toilets are very clean.
Free BBQ available.
It was a pleasant stay.
