          Very nice and large accommodation, at a farm just out of town. Good and quiet hideout, perfectly located for visiting the Franz Josef glacier. The only thing that should be improved is the Wifi system. Very impractical, unreliable and slow.

          Stayed in a two bedroom lodge. Clean, comfortable and of a high quality. Arrived late and lovely to find the heat pump on and a friendly welcome from the owners. Fab view across to the Southern Alps from the deck. Recommended.
