We picked this place for a powered site only because it was the first one we found coming through Franz Joseph heading north in the dark and needed a place to stay after a long drive. The staff was very courteous and helpful eventually however the bathroom/toilets were not very nice (very wet inside and toilet seat wet from shower + no where to put your stuff + shower in dark as light did not work). We purchased wi-fi which did not reach our powered site so we had to sit in office until it closed - however the wi-fi ran out before then (which already cost more than anywhere else we had stayed on South Island).
