Stayed here for 2 nights and the location of this park was perfect for our planned activities and restaurants/food in Franz Josef and surounding areas. Our room was a 'trre hut' that was very neat, clean and spacious enough for the two of us. Good to have shared laundry facilities available to use and well as internet (at cost) on site.

We didn't have a booking, turned up and as there were no Tree Hut rooms left we were offered a Tree Lodge room with a $9 discount. We were also asked if we would like to book a session in the Private Spa. We enquired about flights over the Glacier and were pointed at their recommanded supplier and again offered a discount of $20 each of the cost of the flight. This was booked in there and then for us. Room was amazing, huge bed, very clean, small kitchenette, outside private sitting area and also inside dining area. Bathroom was very clean and well stocked. Huge Cupboard for clothes etc. We were very impressed with the location and the facilaties. And the Private Spa is in a lovely setting, they will provide additional towles to be used with the Spa.

We stayed at the more expensive accommodation at The Rainforest Retreat and we were slightly put off on our arrival by the numbers of back packers milling around and hogging the Internet. The unit we stayed in was very comfortable and lots of appreciated extras like cooking facilities, bathroom extras etc. I did think from the online photos that it would be more spacious and compared to other accommodation we had during our 10 days in the south island of New Zealand, it was priced on the high side.

Upon entering the grounds, rainforest and mountains surround - which made us feel relaxed at once. We stayed in one of the Tree Lodge rooms this March for 2 nights. The rooms were comfortable, roomy, with simple but adequate cooking facilities. The bathroom was modern, and the room had good heating. We ate out at the restaurant - on the same grounds and enjoyed our meal. We liked the range of accommodation available to choose from including backpacker dorms right through to more luxurious apartments. This accommodation is close to town - short walk from Glacier Hikes, supermarket, petrol station etc... A pleasant stay with friendly reception staff.
