    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    We booked a Tree Hut room which was amazing ! The Hut was comfortable and quite and the complementary drinks and nibbles was a nice touch too. My only thought for improvement would be to screen the beer barrels as one drives in and the pile of old sofas outside the other rooms made us a bit nervous about our booking, the look was not great! Overall a very pleasant stay.

    So worth the long drive to get to Franz Joseph. Staffs are super friendly and the delux lodge, the arrangements were all adorned with personal touch. Excellent vacation resort!
