Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier Reviews

The Scenic Franz Josef Glacier Hotels is a complex of different wings and buildings. I can't speak for the whole complex, but the Douglas Graham Wing that we stayed in was rather old and in need of updating. The location was good for walking into the small strip of town that offers helicopter tours and other adventure tours, as well as the handful of restaurants and shops the town has to offer. It is also an easy walk into the rain forest to look for glowworms at night.

Of the eight hotels we stayed at on this trip requesting two beds at each hotel, this was the only one that used twin sized beds. I guess that was the only way to fit two beds in the room.

The food at the hotel's restaurant, The Glasshouse, was decent. I had a very good, fall-off-the-bone lamb shank there.
