  • Family with children
    8.8

    Staff very helpful and knowledgeable, booked activities and recommended restaurants. Spacious villas and nice country atmosphere.

    Not walking distance from town.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    We liked the friendly reception staff, the clean and spacious accomodation and the fact that the heating was working well in the middle of winter.

    We didn't understand that we had to pay for extra members of our family as this is unusual. It cost more than we had anticipated.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The service and help was excellent. The villas were lovely with everything you would need . We had a lovely stay.

    The information on booking .com did not tell us the units were 5 km out of town. No problem if you have a car but we did not. It cost us $10 each time we went to town.

  • Single

    Very friendly welcoming staff member , vey informaive.

    steep stairs and no upsairs toilet, noisey heating the cost or extra adults was very expensive, the most expensive in our holiday.

  • Family with children

    Loved the attached 'farm' and beautiful location.

  • Family with children

    Very nice facility with plenty of room for 4 people. Easy check in and out.

    Initially, our kitchen was not well stocked with hot beverage choices (only 1 coffee and a few teas. The second night, it was fully stocked. Poor tv reception and remote only worked intermittently. The major issue I had was that the terms of our reservation was not clear. When I used your booking site, I requested a place for 4 people. I remember that I checked it several times which led me to select a 2 bedroom unit. Apparently the quote still only included 2 people. The price was already stretching my budget but then I had an unexpected $66 addition for each of the 2 nights. If I had known earlier that there would be an additional $66 per night< I would have not selected this facility. I never would have picked a place which would be over $300/night. So I am not sure who or when this error was made, but it came as an unpleasant surprise. I felt trapped into the reservation because it was too late to cancel.

    When booking, we asked for a room with a view and we weren't disappointed. Our host provided us with a unit with views of Franz Josef glacier from our back patio. What a superb setting - perfect for our nightly champers after a day on the slopes.

    We were made to feel welcome and our hosts were very pleasant and helpful with the area and questions we had. Great facilities and recommended if you are visiting the franz.

    Nothing.

    Marcel a dignified and lovable host if I ever visit Fran Josef again I would like to be in the honest and capable hands ofmy host Marcel.

    Well equiped kitchen, great modern design, private, good DVD library.

  • Couple
    10.0

    We stayed at Glenfern Villas for one night as we wanted to go up Franz Josef glacier early the next day and the is just a 5-min drive away from the village. We asked for the king size bed app and we got much more than we expected. Beautiful interior design, a fully-equipped kitchen and crispy, white linen. Loved the sloping roof that made it feel like a chalet in the Alps!

  • Couple

    Friendly staff, well kept room and grounds, I would highly reccomend these villas to anybody wanting value for money and awesome surroundings.

  • Couple
    10.0

    It was probably one of the cheaper places we stayed throughout our trip but if we could do nz again we would definitley stay a few more nights in Franz Josef just to stay here. Caesar was one of the nicest people, the Villas make their own body wash/shampoo range which is amazing and they have a focus on the environment which doesn't compromise how nice the stay with them is. Perfect.

    So friendly, the villa's were beautiful inside defiantly value for money.
