Distant Journeys rating
Situated on the edge of the Franz Josef Glacier, one of New Zealand’s most spectacular natural attractions, the Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier is an accommodation highlight. Staying in the Graham Wing in a light and airy room, you’ll enjoy the beautiful surroundings within Franz Josef village.
Canavans and Glasshouse Restaurants provide hearty West Coast food, with local fare, wine and beer featured on their menus. Canavans Restaurant is available by reservation only, and the open-plan design means it is the ideal location for groups and functions.
The Moa Bar is located in the heart of the hotel and provides the perfect place to unwind, next to the roaring fire, or on the balcony enjoying stunning West Coast weather. Open from 4.00pm, the Moa Bar offers a wide selection of New Zealand beers and wines, along with spirits and non-alcoholic beverages. Sample the best of the local food, wines and beer – try some of the famous West Coast whitebait or sample some Westland lamb shanks, and don’t forget to leave room for a refreshing Speights or Steinlager beer.
