“Good B&B”
Reviewed 15 April 2008

We stayed at Misty Peaks for 2 nights (5 and 6 April) during our 2 week trip around the South Island. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite (without requesting it) which had a lovely spa bath and nice views of the glaciers. The B&B is about a 2 min drive to the main eating strip for Fox which only has a few places. We ate at Cook Saddle for the 2 nights and although a little pricey it was fine. You can choose to eat at the B&B with the other guests.

Breakfast was good and everyone ate together which was fun.
We were fortunate enough to have amazing weather so the heli-hike was the highlight of my trip.

This B&B is located just out of town with good views of the surrounding mountains.

Very friendly hosts Dave & Lea who went out of their way to make you feel at home.

Large room with kingsize bed, e/s shower room, TV, easy chairs & small table.

The tea & coffee making facilities were not in the room but available in the guests dining room which meant walking down the corridor to make it and then return. Not ideal in my experience.

Light sleepers were liable to be woken by the noise of helicopters from 7am as the accomodation has several helipads nearby.

  • Liked — comfort of room.
  • Disliked — noise from helicopters.

We stayed one night at Misty Peaks during our 3 week vacation in New Zealand. We were greeted by Lea and a warm cup of tea upon arrival (although it was summer, it was rainy and a bit chilly).

We found our room to be very clean and comfortable . We enjoyed a happy hour wine tasting with the other guests.

We had dinner "in "that night. Dave is a good cook (his steak was one of the better meals we had in New Zealand). We had some lively conversation with the other guests. It was a very convivial evening.

Fox Glacier is very small and we think that Misty Peaks is probably the best bet in town.

  • Liked — The dinner with other guests.
  • Disliked — $5.00 charge for internet.

We stayed only for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts Dave and Lea were very freindly and helpful with their advise on the surrounding area and our further travel plans. We also chose to have our evening meal at the homestead with some of the other guest, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The room was truly lovely and have wonderful views. They were also able to arrange a helicopter scenic flight for us which was unforgetable.

  • Liked — It was very comfortable and inviting
  • Disliked — Cost of the wine list, would have liked to be able to buy by the glass option

What a great B&B! By far the best one we have ever stayed at! Our room was large and in pristine condition. We stayed for dinner one night, and the food was excellent! It was also a ton of fun to talk to the other couples who were there from all over the world. Lea and Dave were there to attend to every need and to help us plan activities. Highly recommended for an unforgetful night!

What a wonderful B&B in Fox Glacier. Such nice hosts. It was wise for us to stay for dinner, because options in town were quite limited. We had wonderful conversation with two other Australian couples. Fun to socialize!

Room was pristene and clean and beautiful. We loved it and definitely this was one of our best stays on our trip, and likely the best option in Fox Glacier.

We’ve just returned from a 4 week holiday in NZ and found this to be one of our favourite stays. We were particularly impressed with the location, and the friendliness of the owners.

We had a room facing the base of Fox Glacier and what a sunset. We had a meal with Dave and Lea that evening and it was excellent - one of our best. Dave shared some of his secrets for the excellent meals with us. Be sure to try his sticky date pudding which by the way was fantastic.

Dave booked a Helicopter ride for the next morning and that was most definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

Dave and Lea thanks for an excellent stay, just wish we had planned to stay longer.
