We stayed in feb 2017 for a night, drove from Queens town to the Franz Josef, located little out of the village but if you have a car this wont matter. 10 on 10 on location & Cleanness.

We wanted to stay in Frank Josef and accommodation was at a premium. We were not prepared for this however. The cabin was damp. The manager was very helpful and apologised for the issue. Since all cabins were let however, there was no other option. The fact of the matter was that this cabin - and an adjoining one(Numbers 44...

The park is a little way out of town, but on site the facilities are some of the best I've come across during a 2 week trip. Very large kitchen area, which is clean and tidy. Mix of small and large shower cubicles/rooms which were well maintained. And if you chose a good spot for your tent, you get glimpses...

Would advise find somewhere else to stay. Very expensive $46 for a tent site for 2 ppl. Fridges barely less than ambient temp, facilities not clean, lots of appliances not working eg stoves, hair dryers, oven doors that dont close. Many boggy tent pitches. Minimal facilities eg only 1 fridge in each kitchen. Will never return here.

We stayed on our recent camper van trip around the South Island. The staff were very welcoming and helpful when it came to booking a tour. You can see the glacier from the camp site if the clouds are high enough.

Stayed in the kitchen cabins for 2 nights to explore both Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. The cabin was much more than we expected - just like a studio motel but without a bathroom (shared shower/toilet block was only a short walk under a covered veranda). Has a 2 element cooker, microwave, cooking utensils, crockery etc. under bench fridge, and...

We only stayed here for one night, due to the weather, but would have liked to have stayed longer. We stayed on a non powered tent pitch. The owner was honest and helpful regarding the upcoming weather, and we found her really welcoming. I believe she has only been there for 5 weeks, and she was great. The kitchen and...

The place it's for people who have a car obviously because it's outside the town, not very far but not nice to walk in the road. The rooms are clean and I guess not a bad option for a family traveling on a budget. The staff is friendly and nice, not doubt about it. What I didn't like was that...
