    Wow oh Wow!

    My husband and I stayed here for 1 night on our honeymoon, and our first thought was massive regret that we hadn’t planned to stay for longer! Such a beautiful feeling from the second we drove in. The receptionist was super friendly and provided us with a room upgraded upon arrival. Then when we got into our room there was some chocolates and champagne to celebrate our honeymoon. The room was so spacious, clean and well styled. The stay was peaceful and tranquil, and we would recommend to anyone visiting Franz Josef. The restaurant and bar on site was also fantastic, such delicious food and great range of drinks with some fireplaces inside to keep you warm. Cannot wait to return to this hidden gem. Deserves 5+ stars!
