“Well positioned and welcoming.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

A good sized site within easy access from Franz Josef. All camper van pitches are well arranged and level with the usual power and dump sites as normal. The kitchen and shower / toilet block is large, airy and modern with a good number of sinks and hobs. The laundry block is well equipped with modern machines that work just fine.

Whilst the site is not landscaped of otherwise made "pretty" it is very functional and a most welcome sight at the end of a long damp day! The staff at reception greet you warmly and ensure that you have all you need for your stay.

A good site and well recommended.

We stayed here in early November 2012 and had a pleasant stay, in a small clean and comfortable self-contained room. From our room you could see the snowy mountain tops, nice views. This is not in the center of Franz Josef but very close, and very quiet. The reception area is huge and they offer bookings and many information brochures for the area and beyond. There are some food items you can buy there as well. The customer service is above average, very pleasant and helpful staff. There is a playground for children, including a trampoline. Overall a very pleasant stay, would stay there again.

Another great top10 campsite. We stayed in one of the small cabins which was perfect, spotless and very well priced. The facilities were outstanding and there was even a TV room with SKY and a games room with pool table, air hockey, arcade games, you name it. The staff at reception were also very informative and helpful with ideas for the rest of our holiday.

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.
