We stayed two nights and thought this one of the best places we've stayed in New Zealand. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom. Small touches made it special such as fresh milk in room refridge for you coffee, robes and space heater for chilly nights. The common spaces were very spacious with a great view of the glacier...

We stayed here for 1 night after an afternoon of helihiking and enjoyed both the room and breakfast. We were warmly welcomed and escorted to our room. It was nice and spacious and the apples and cookies on the coffee table were a nice touch. There were 3 hot meal options for breakfast along with a nice selection of fruits...

This the perfect place to stay. The rooms are open & spacious. The breakfasts which are included are very good. The amenities include a lovely lodge type setting with great views. There is a bar & snooker table for customer use, along with video collections & excellent wifi connections. It is also very close to the Franz Joseph Glacier.

Pleasant set of log cabins with patios overlooking gardens and snow topped mountains beyond. Franz Joseph is all about heli-rides up glaciers, walking, biking and other extreme sports. You need to be there on a sunny day or it all grinds to a halt ! The lodge was pleasant, without being exciting. Probably the best accommodation in the area.

We didn't spend a ton of time here, but the lodge is very lovely and cozy for a place in the middle of nowhere! The beds had heaters in the bed, which was a nice touch! There was also coffee and tea in the room. They had a cozy lodge and pool table and room to play games with the...

Just finished a two-week trip through New Zealand, and spent a few of those nights at Westwood Lodge. It's a really nice place to stay, located right near the township and offering access to plenty of surrounding activities. Kaz, who runs the place, is very friendly, and the two dogs are adorable. We got a great breakfast each day; the...

This was one of our favorite places along the South Island's west coast. Spacious room, beautiful common areas and gardens, gracious service from the owner and staff alike. Great breakfast with spectacular views of the mountains. For those who are concerned about the 3/4 mile walk into town...really? You are visiting one of the most beautiful outdoor scenic areas in...

We visit NZ every year and since we discovered Westwood Lodge in Franz Joseph we always stay there. It is an exceptional accommodation from the garden setting, to the lovely guest suites. We are always greeted by Caz and her fluffy labradoodles. The lodge has a gorgeous common space for breakfast, for fireplace lounging, reading, relaxing, or having a cocktail...

This lodge is just outside the main streets of Franz Josef on the main route into town. It is partially hid from the highway by trees and jungle, and is fairly quiet. We were impressed by the large suites with very nice comfortable beds, and the overall nice appointments. The grounds are very nice with a view into the mountains,...
