This is our second visit here and it is even better then last year! Very clean, quiet, well appointed chalets but the best is the hospitality of the staff. Cesar who was on duty welcomed us warmly and made us feel most welcome. We were given many tour options and suggestions for our stay Put this on your list as...

We stayed a few nights in early January 2014- we had a one bedroom apartment. It was very spavious, clean and tidy and the staff there were lovely, they gave us great advice on local activities and how to get around town. The kitchen was fully equipped with appliances and utensils. The tea and plunger coffee were great. It's a...

We were astounded by the beauty of the surroundings as we drove into Glenfern Villas. Just stunning. Our apartment was very clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The hosts were fantastic - generous, helpful, and easy going. Well recommended

Great one bedroom villa with small, but full function kitchen. Quiet location out of town by 5 minutes. A great location for a rainy day ( there are 200 here every year)- can stay in and comfortably watch a movie, they have a small collection for free. Hint- Book your helicopter trip thru the hotel, no prepay required, and you...

We loved our stay at Glenfern. The owners were lovely and even invited us over for drinks and snacks on Christmas. The location is a few minutes drive from Franz Josef - which we actually preferred over staying in town and it allowed for some pretty spectacular views from our porch. The kitchen comes fully equipped but a spatula and...

Well equipped, roomy cottages. Rather beautiful buildings in a lovely location with views of mountains (when the mists lift). There's a very effective heater, and a communal laundry to wash and dry your rain-soaked clothes. Books and DVDs are available to borrow, and there is a petanque court, for those moments when it isn't raining. The alpacas are decorative. A...

The accomodation was comfortable and spacious with a separate bedroom and decent cooking facilities but we thought it was over-priced compared to other places we stayed on the south island.We understood the area could get quite busy in November so we booked well in advance via our UK travel agent.We certainly lost out on currency fluctuations but I'm sure we...

The weather was awful when we arrived. Raining hard. We were met at the reception by a guy, sorry do not have his name, but he gave us a very good welcome and showed us to our villa (he walked and we followed in the car). He also gave us two free hours wifi and showed me how to make...

We only stayed for one night but it was great. The guy who checked us in was lovely, there's DVDs you can borrow from reception he even have us a pint if milk I would definitely have liked to stay longer. The only negative was that the villa creaked ALOT during the night. We stayed during a rainstorm and it...
