The Franz Joseph TOP 10 holiday Park is a well sited property, on the edge of the village. It has attractively landscaped grounds with plenty of parking for cars and boats. Our two bedroom unit was tidy well equipped. The check in staff were helpful and friendly. Franz Joseph is worth a visit, not just for the glaciers, but also... More

Good clean serviceable place. Had a single room with double and bunk beds. Short walk to bathrooms and kitchen which were clean. Own towels needed and is a short drive to town so a car is handy. Friendly staff and loads to do nearby. Only stayed one night but was good.

Located a short drive out of town, this holiday park was so spacious and great for pitching a tent (unlike others in town which we mistook for a carpark). Stunning views.. Just beautiful. Great kitchen and general facilities. Friendly staff. Downsides: ground was quite swampy following rain. 100mb of free wifi is deceiving.. Honestly if you need wifi you'll have... More

We stayed at the Franz Josef Top 10 Holiday Park for 2 nights on a powered site. We were travelling in a motorhome which is fairly large and although parking on the site was tight it was not as tight as other parks. The park is set on level ground half way between the mountains and the sea. Although set... More

We stayed for two nights to see the glacier. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm room, which we hadn't booked but it was all ours. Strange. Anyway, the showers were great and so was the kitchen. It was only 5 mins into town and I'd stay again if I was in the area.

I would guess that this site is relatively immature and needs time for planting etc to get established, however, I found the dust from the unmade roads a negative. The amenities are very good plenty of space and clean and on that basis alone a 5. The camp is only just over a kilometer from Franz Joseph itself so is... More

This HolidayPark is situated a little out of Franz Josef, so a walk into town for supper was too far to do more than once! There was plenty of space and the facilities were well laid out with everything you need from a self-catering site, and all that we've come to expect from this good company.

Stayed with my mum for 2 nights in a one bedroom cabin. Cabin had everything we needed and was very clean. Nice and quiet with easy access into Franz Josef. No fly screens seeMs to be a trend in NZ so midgies made it in when we had the windows/door open. Would stay again!

We stayed here overnight recently on our trip down the west coast. It is about 5 minutes drive to town and an easy drive to the carpark to view the Glacier. Our ensuited unit was clean and comfortable and there was a small outdoor table which was handy. There was also a great view of the mountains. A shared kitchen... More
