About us

Westwood Lodge Bed and Breakfast is located in Franz Josef on the West Coast of New Zealand. We are situated right in the forest, with stunning views of the World Heritage Westland National Park, the Southern Alps and Franz Josef Glacier.

The lodge is run by the owner Kaz Gilmore and her team of dedicated staff who will ensure your visit runs smoothly. We are more than happy to advise and organise activities in the area for you. See what’s on offer on our activities page.

Our Bed and Breakfast is sitting below the stellar icy peaks of Franz Josef. Our lodge-style accommodation includes ensuite guest rooms with beautiful garden views, a breakfast restaurant with a range of dining options, and a sumptuous guest lounge to relax in after a busy day.

Here at Westwood Lodge we have made a commitment to reduce our footprint on the planet by adopting sustainable environmental, economic and social practices.  Management and staff are all actively involved in our ongoing commitment to reduce our impact on the natural environment.  Together we can create a cleaner & greener little piece of paradise for all to enjoy now and in years to come.
