Choice it for the view, unfortunately it was raining
Thought that it was over priced for what in reality was a motel with communal lounge
We loved our beautiful room. We stayed in the main house and had a gorgeous view of the glacier from our room. The bathroom (with heated floors!) was luxurious and the room was well-designed. The hotel itself had great amenities like a billiards room, a guest lounge (with stunning views), board games, puzzles, a library and DVD library. Breakfast was lovely and Kaz went out of her way to make sure guests were comfortable and well-cared for. We really enjoyed our stay here. When deciding on a place in Franz Josef, we wanted something that felt personal, had character and was 'mountainy' in tone and Westwood delivered.
As it's a two minute drive into town, it was a 15 minute walk. This wasn't taxing and the road is well-lit at night. It was only slightly inconvenient. However, we thought the hotel's design and size of the rooms made up for this.
The lodge is a couple of minutes out of town, which made for a very peaceful stay. The views from the main lodge guest area, as well as from our room were superb. (View towards Frans Josef glacier) The rooms are a great size, large bathrooms, a couch to watch TV's / movies as well as a small desk if you were working. The rooms are a lovely timber and were spotless. Caz & Leslie were lovely hosts, and we enjoyed the company of the two dogs Benson and ???
We just stayed overnight, and loved the comfortable big bed, and the resident dogs! Kaz was very welcoming and informative and cooked a tasty breakfast (Eggs Benedict and a 'Kiwi breakfast'. Our Coach room was also spacious.
Kaz was awesome. Location was very ideal. Great view of Franz Josef. Very quiet. Just a very comfortable Place
