Franz Alpine Retreat

I'm wondering if anyone has stayed or heard of the Franz Alpine Retreat (http://www.jagescape.co.nz/). The place looks nice.. but I'd like to hear some input before booking anything. We'd be staying 3 nights.

Also, I plan on doing a helihike at Fox Glacier. Do many people stay in Franz Josef and take day trips to Fox?

1. Re: Franz Alpine Retreat

I just looked at their web site, I can understand why you are confused, I dont say this very often, but I dont like their web siite at all, it tells you nothing.

It is well situated, not far from te hot pools, and the center of town.

you can do hele hiking at franz Joseph as well as at Fox.

All the accomodation places I have checked out are of very high quality, so shouldnt be too bad for you.

sorry I cant be more useful
