The property is well located, quiet and well priced. It is, however, tired and could do with maintenance.

We found our room very clean, with everything we needed. The heating worked very well, which was a blessing as weather bitterly cold & wet! Staff even provided us with umbrellas to use! It was centrally located & easy to find.

Trapped at Franz Josef when the roads were cut. Didn't get a refund on the missed first night of three, but they sorted us out for a late check-in when we made it for the second night and sorted us for an early checkout at 4am the third night to catch our plane. Lovely staff.
