For unpretentious, Qualmark four-star-plus luxury near the glaciers, turn into this spacious, modern lodge-style B&B just a few minutes' drive from Franz Josef village. Benson, the labradoodle, will welcome you. Rooms are big, with timber surroundings and a neutral color palette. A huge open fire warms the guest lounge, which has an exceptional alpine and bush outlook. Sumptiously relaxing, says the brochure—and it's true.
