“lovely log Cabins”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

the rooms at the lodge were very clean and nicely decorated. our bedroom was on the ground floor.

Breakfast was set out in the kitchen and guests helped themselves to the Continental Style goods provided.

Good Value for money and very helpful staff who booked our excursions for us to Fox Glacier.

Friendly and helpful staffs. Tidy room and clean bathroom.. however, some of the shower room door can't close properly. The kitchen needs improvement, and replace some of the kitchenware.

The rooms at the Lodge were very clean and comfortable with the bedroom upstairs. The room is mountain style and the buildings are made from timber. We never heard our neighbours from either the rooms beside us or from the camping area located behind the rooms.
What we liked about this property was the little extras that surprised and delighted us. When we came 'home' after a big day walking up Franz Josef Glacier, we discovered home made white chocolate and raspberry muffins for us - YUM! About the only problem is that you practically had to sit outside the main office to get access to the wifi. But that was very minor in the scheme of things - especially considering it was free.

Newly built log cabin, just a minute from the main highway that passes brought the township. Breakfast was already in the cabin when we checked in, and some of it was uncovered, and the windows had been open. The room was spacious and mostly clean- a few small cobwebs in the roof, but no dust or dirt. We did run the bath, and the water seemed a bit yellow- don't know if that's normal for the area or not? Host was friendly, and showed us to the cabin.

We spent one night there on our honeymoon.
The place is very nice and welcoming, staff as well.
The room is very nice indeed, with the spa bathtube.
The only thing I disliked was the wifi internet connection. Infact it is very limited, even though free.
