The day we arrived it was pouring rain. The owner, Katz, & Benson & Zac, the goldendoodles met us at the door! Katz had a fire burning & it warmed our bones quickly! We were ecstatic with our bungalow. There was a foyer, a sitting room, a big bedroom & a lovely bathroom with a wonderful big tub! There was... More

At first we were taken back by the log cabin feel. But the comfort and care that they take was apparent after a brief time. The breakfast is delicious and the rooms spacious. We had a lovely view of trees and mountains in the background. It is a great place to stay while in Franz Josef.

The Westwood Lodge is just outside of Franz Josef. It was excellent. The owners and staff were more than accommodating. The breakfast was great and the rooms were quiet and very clean. It is about a mile from the main part of town so quiet but close to all. They help on everything and spent time with us answering all... More

This is a lovely, small lodge with large and spacious rooms. We were in the "coach" rooms. We had a lovely wall of glass and a view of snow-capped mountains in the background and tropical foliage in the foreground. I recommend this place highly! The owner is very nice and accommodating as well. The breakfasts are excellent.

We spent more time in this lodge than usual due to rainy weather, and really appreciated its comfort, and the two wonderful dogs. The room was comfortable, but the lounge/living room was especially nice and welcoming. We also liked that the staff arranged for us to be picked up and delivered from our restaurants so we didn't need to do... More

This is a really nice lodge with a great welcoming host (Kaz) and 2 very friendly and playful dogs. Our room was quite spacious with a walkout to a large deck. The guest lounge is very comfortable with a large selection of games and books. The breakfast was excellent. I would stay here again.

We stayed for two nights at the Westwood Lodge. The lodge looks a bit like a motel on the outside. Our room and bathroom were very spacious, unfortunately not very clean. The room has coffee and tea facilities as well as a fridge. Bathroom could use an update. The complimentary cookies tasted very nice. Sitting on the terrace you can... More

We have just stayed here for two nights and it was a really good base for our exploring. Kaz our host was friendly and as soon as we arrived she gave us a map and recommended places for dinner, telling us about the menus and offering to book a table if we wished.
