Our one bedroom villa was super clean & very well appointed. Nice kitchen, modern bathroom, spacious open plan lounge & dining area & very very comfortable beds. The villas are in a gorgeous location just a short drive to the town centre of Franz Josef. Management were very helpful & friendly, would stay again.

The 2 bedroom apartment we had was roomy, well laid out over 2 floors and like a temporary home. We felt very welcomed by the place and the staff. There was an afternoon of rain and the kids relaxed over a video provided by the hotel. The Glenfearn is just out of town in the rural surroundings and kids can...

I really enjoyed how they had a lot of range of things to do and information. And that you could take out for many movies,books,bikes,board games for free. There is also a shuttle right from your door to the glacier for only $12.00 return. Truly great for kids!

We stayed for 2 nights in a 1 bedroom villa. It was very comfortable, clean with good facilities. Staff were very helpful and offered to organise trips and gave good tips on places to eat. Located just north of Franz Joseph and easily found, just off the state highway.

These villas are situated about 5 minutes north of Franz Joseph and are exceptionally comfortable. It was great to have a sitting room which was very comfortable for us both and full cooking facilities. The staff were friendly but not intrusive and they recommended Alice may for dinner which was very good. One if our top 3 stays in NZ.

Glenfern Villas , while out of Franz Joseph, the villas are in a quiet, peaceful setting. The villas, clean, fresh and decor is tasteful. Summer is a welcoming face to the villas. We had a great sleep , and enjoyed our stay.
