What travelers to Franz Josef are saying

Charming little town - make sure you check out Alice May's for a cozy feed on a cold night! The walk to the Glacier is amazing, unfortunately we were unable to go to the top due to heavy wind and rain. Try to get here on a clear day otherwise...

Terrible weather while we were there, but it's a gorgeous part of the world even so. We ate at the King Tiger - great service, nice surrounds, pretty average food, acceptable value for money.

Unforgettable Franz Josef Glacier

Franz Josef hotels offer convenience and comfort to visitors looking for an interesting holiday experience in a quaint town near the coast in Western New Zealand. The town is named after the Franz Josef Glacier, which is a mere 5 kilometres away and is easily accessible for the visitors arriving daily to view it. All this, plus the 7% back on your bookings through HotelClub’s exclusive club benefits, will turn your hotel stay into a travel adventure.

The entire town is located within the Westland Tai Poutini National Park, allowing easy access to plenty of beauty and nature during your stay. More adventurous visitors might enjoy travelling the 20 minutes to the Whataroa and Perth Rivers for a white water rafting excursion or stay in town and take an exciting and unique tour with Across Country Quad Bikes. After the excitement of helicopter rides and air safaris, spend some time in the Glacier Hot Pools. There is sure to be something to thrill everyone near your Franz Josef accommodations. After the adventures you are sure to experience during the day, a fabulous dinner is a must. I suggest The Landing.

Franz Josef Airport is just two minutes from town. Fly there directly or transfer from Christchurch International Airport. Bus and car are the main ways to get into town. Once you have arrived at your Franz Josef hotel, the best way to get around is on foot. Rental cars are also an option and for something a little different, flight tours are also offered to explore the area.
