  • Wonderful two-night-stay in Franz Josef! Holly & Karl are such lovely people who made us feel like home away from home. Their place was fantastic with a very comfortable bed, everything was clean and warm - just perfect! Loved the breakfast they provided as well the chats with the family and Josie, their nanny. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Lancewood to everybody!

  • Fantastic home. Such a beautiful and comfortable room. They made us both feel very welcome. We had sic freedom to come and go as we pleased and use all their private facilities without any feel in that we were imposing upon them. Would love to have stayed longer. Their cute little boys were a fun distraction from the rain too!!

  • The room was probably the nicest room we stayed in of all of our air B&B locations in New Zealand. Very modern. Very contemporary. The Breakfast we were served was excellent with toast, fruit, yogurt and cereal. Excellent hosts in Holly and Karl and their nanny Josie. Highly recommend.

  • With my friend Delphine, we stayed at Lancewood Luxury Guest Stay for a night. Holly sent us information right before we arrived. The room was lovely and the water with oranges was a real delight! Thank you!

  • This place was so beautifully decorated - such a great, completely private nook of the house. Holly made a great breakfast too and was such a gracious host. Highly recommend!

  • Holly n Karl were great host, very welcoming and friendly. The private guest house is wonderfully comfortable and so peaceful place. Karl made dinner for us and it was very delicious. We would come again and recommend everyone.

  • We really enjoyed staying with Holly and her family. They are warm and welcoming and have a fantastic house a few km out of franz Joseph Glacier township with beautiful views. The room was immaculately clean and the bed so comfortable, the smell of candles and the heater already on when we arrived made us feel very special! Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

  • Perfect night with Holly and his family !!!!
    If you want a really good rest, go to Holly and Karl house.
    The bedroom was just perfect, and very very comfortable.
    It was really nice to share a good breakfast with the family on the morning, before the hiking on Franz Josef Glacier

    Thanks again.

  • Lovely place in Franz Josef, exactly as pictured. A little out of town - which isn't an issue if you have a car. Holly was a great host and made us feel right at home. It was nice to have our own little area to unwind but also chat with the family in the main house. Despite being busy, Holly got a hearty breakfast ready for us each morning. I highly recommend Lancewood if you're in Franz Josef.
