Stayed 2 nights at a Private Ensuite room, located way at a corner. Clean, spacious room with facilities working well. However, at the time of visit, it was constantly raining in Franz Josef, hence the room is often cold, despite the heater is always turned on. It seemed that the heater is insufficient to warm up the room in cold weather. Toilet had a musky smell in the night-time.
Common kitchen was well-equipped and clean.
Staff was exceptionally friendly and attended to our needs, giving suggestions for other activities due to the bad weather and road closures.
Try the Monsoon restaurant, it is a fabulous place with great food and drinks.
