We arrived in Franz Josef on a wet and miserable afternoon. We really appreciated the friendly welcome and the fact that we were shown to our room where a warm fire awaited us. The staff could not have been more helpful. As the weather continued to be poor we did not travel far and were content to stay in the very comfortable room. In better weather it would be nice to sit outside on the veranda surrounded by woodland.

We stayed at Punga Grove and we were actually in the rainforest. It was pitch black at night and all you could hear were the birds and the rain pouring down. We also had a gas fireplace in the room which was awesome after tramping to see the glacier. Shuttle came right to the hotel to take us to the glacier.

Fantastic accomodation!!! The staff are super friendly! They were very accommodating in extending our stay and giving us great tip on what to see. The 2 bedroom suite was very comfortable with a wonderful glass ceiling outlook into back patio. On arrival we also received free milk for our tee and coffee. There are great cooking facilities. The staff also gave us a great discount price for the Hot Pools which are only about a 5min walk.

Stayed one night while driving down the West Coast and has a great stay. Rooms are large and very clean and within walking distance to all the shops, restaurants etc. the check in was a breeze and was given local tips on where to eat. The view out the back of our room was tranquil and quiet.
