Franz Josef TOP 10 Holiday Park
Reviewed September 20, 2012

An idyllic setting in the mountains, we were fortunate enough to stay here when it was relatively quiet (although we'd still booked in advance). Once again, a good Top 10 site with clean facilities and a good sized kitchen. Only gripe would be that, unlike most of the other places at which we've stayed, this one didn't have much separation between sites, so there wasn't a great deal of privacy. Not a massive issue though, as it was so quiet whilst we were there.

The guy on reception was helpful with maps, pointing out nice places to stop for food and beers. It's about a 20 minute walk down the main road to the town centre.

My experience with management over the telephone, and during check in and check out was fantastic a great team, providing excellent customer service.

The park is large and units are spread out, providing excellent carparking, ammenities and wow great views.

Very close to the glaciers, and reception has a small variety of foods and facilities for booking tours,

Overall a great experience 9 out of 10

The only DISAPOINTMENT was the internet, I cannot believe that in this day and age motel/hotel operators believe that the internet is an option one should pay for, Internet is a utility like electricity, pay TV, water etc, and should be included in room rates, I do not mind paying $195 per night for a 2 bedroom self contained unit (excellent) but $30 for internet WOW what a rip off,,, Even MCDonalds provide FREE Internet/WiFi with a $5 order, Stayed in 4 hotels this trip and the only place that charged for WiFi

Room Tip: Ask about internet use charges before checking in,

Imagine waking up and looking out your motorhome window straight onto the mountains. Absolutely beautiful.
Friendly staff, clean tidy park. Very clean showers/toilets. Free warm spa.
Its a little bit out of town, but that was ok with us.
I'd definitely stay here again.

Very nice little holiday park with the snow capped mountains off in the distance. Room and bed were huge and facilities were all new and clean. Very happy with our stay here, staff were very helpful and polite. Enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back.

Room Tip: The ensuite units were lovely and had a view of the mountains.

Excellent service and probably the nicest top 10 I've stayed at yet. Staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a good one. We had a powered site and facilities were top notch and very clean. Thanks guys!

The first room we checked in has NO heater at all! And this is May. We upgraded to a second room with actually a heater, but then the room was still cold and very uncomfortable. Facilities are bad throughout. Along our trip we stayed in another Top 10, and found that both of them are lackluster in quality. Don't be lured by the $5-10 savings in room rates (sometimes even at the same price). You get much better quality in other motels and holiday parks. The staffs are unfriendly by NZ standards and provides little information as we checked in. I guess they just want to go off early since we arrived around 1 hr before their reception closing time.
