Four Stars and a Silver for Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier


Scenic Hotel Group is proud to announce the Qualmark four-star accreditation for Scenic Hotel Franz Josef, along with a new Qualmark Enviro-Silver rating.

General Manager Maree Welgus says the rating comes in time for the completion of the final stage of the multi million dollar refurbishment “It’s great to have the final 28 rooms of the hotel up to four star standard,” says Maree. “All 130 rooms are refurbished and refurnished, ready for the coming summer season. The Qualmark assessor described the hotel’s presentation as ‘terrific’.

Ms Welgus says a highlight of the assessment feedback was recognition of the impact made by staff. “We work hard to make this an enjoyable and rewarding workplace and it’s great to see that come through for Qualmark I’m so incredibly proud of my team. Our guests greatly appreciate their friendliness and attentiveness whilst visiting the spectacular Glacier region. Cleanliness also rated very high on the Qualmark scorecard. “Like every Scenic Hotel, we are committed to chemical free cleaning throughout the property. It’s may seem more labour intensive, but we believe it gives a better finish and is so much better for the environment.”

All beds at Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier now have the signature “Scenic bedding system” that utilises feather and wool mattress toppers, a very generous pillow menu and feather and down duvets. “One of the comments I’ve had again and again from guests since we started upgrading the beds is the fabulous sleep everyone gets. Our beds really do have to be experienced to be believed – the best sleep you’ll have away from home.”

The largest 100% New Zealand owned and operated hotel chain in the country, Scenic Hotel Group has eight four star and four star plus Scenic Hotels across the country.
