De regio aan de westkust van het Zuidereiland van Nieuw-Zeeland bevindt zich het ruige berglandschap met de gletsjer Franz Josef en Fox Glacier. De Maori’s geloven in de legende van Franz Josef. Deze gaat over een meisje die haar vriend verliest nadat hij met bergbeklimmen is omgekomen. Zij heeft zóveel verdriet, dat haar overvloed aan tranen bevroren raakte tot een gletsjer.
"Good views of Mount Cook"
Glazier retreating rapidly boosting flights to glazier as the best way of viewing it. Hotel set in holiday complex with bedroom accommodation in wings and a covered walk to reception. Small intimate dining room with stunning views.
"Not value for money; building is picturesque but up close not luxurious as you would expect for "retreat""
Positives - friendly and welcoming staff. Quiet and serene surrounding. Clean bathrooms, beddings, etc. Negatives - waaay overpriced for a bed and breakfast quality stay. Can save a lot of money by staying elsewhere. Lots of options around Franz Josef
"enjoyed my stay here"
I enjoyed my stay here with my friends. This is handy location for short drive to Franz Joseph glacier. Rooms are reasonablely clean and tidy. Internet a little slow, though.
"Beautiful overal but lacked luxury for price"
I stayed one night with my mom. The drive up was spectacular & just the kind of place we were hoping for. The grounds are beautiful & the mountain backdrop really dramatic - this place had the right country feel - it felt very authentic & nz countrysidey- which segways to a few niggly points We had a very warm welcome by rather young staff - they were thorough & helpful but a little lost. The living areas were massive & full of facilities -we didn't make use of them. The room was good sized & the French doors looked out to car park so not very private. Generally we were very warm The beds were comfy but the furniture & decor generally lacked a luxury feel expected with the price. (more like aunty's spare room than luxury suite) We ate our evening meal there & it was average - NZ folk seem to lack skill in the kitchen generally though so I cant isolate these guys especially - continental breakfast had a good range, cooked choices were limited but acceptable - I'd recommend they expand the choice - add smoked salmon perhaps Generally all the 7 places we stayed in the south island were of this price range and this one was the best on the outside but worst on inside so I hope the reviews help the owners turn this place into a dream destination for tourists!!
"Wonderful place to stay"
What an introduction to New Zealand hospitality. We were made feel so welcome from the minute we walked in the door. Recieved an upgrade to the most spectacular room. We couldnt believe how beautiful the room was and the views were magnificent. Staff so helpful in organising activities for us to do during our stay. Evening meal was delicious. The home made museli for breakfast was to die for. Do note though that the retreat is 6 k's from Franz Josef township.
