The room are really nice: big, clean and confortable. Breakfast was really good. Location is good even if I think that every location in Fox is quite the same as there is no special view to get somewhere and all hotels are along the same road.
Unfortunately, we cannot judge more about this place as we arrived quite late and left quite early the tomorrow day then we didn't have diner there or time to appreciate hospitality of the owners which makes the difference for a homestay.

Stayed here recently with another couple. We found it on trip advisor and as usual we were not disappointed. The food is particularly good and Dave and Lee are delightful hosts.
We recommend this place very highly

We had a warm welcome and enjoyed Dave and Lea's welcome. Modern and purpose built to offer guests a good stay we enjoyed our large room and excellent bathroom, plus a very comfortable bed with quality linen. We chose to stay for dinner and really enjoyed it, good food and wine, taken at one table with the other guests. Breakfast was good, we took ours at 8.45 which suited us, as some of the other guests particularly wanted to have theirs at 7.30.

We stayed only 1 night at Misty Peaks, a big mistake, we should have stayed longer. Excellent accommodation, great location with views of the surrounding mountains. a very comfortable room with a equally comfortable bed. Free WiFi is available. Dave the Host was great. Our dinner of Venison steaks was absolutely delicious, cooked to perfection with e very good wine to accompany it. We were booked to fly onto the Glacier next morning at 0900 but because of the poor weather it looked like our flight would be cancelled. Enter Dave!! He contacted the helipad and fixed it for us to fly at 0815, the only flight to get up and land on the Glacier that day. Dave saved the day for us. He also helped us by getting our laundry done!

Room Tip: One night is NOT enough, Dave can help you fill your time by advising sites to be seen.

The Misty Peaks is a great place to stay in Fox glacier.

The service is great, the hosts are very friendly and the B&B is near everything in Fox.

If you want to avoid the crowds and have a nice night of sleep in Fox glacier this is the place to have it.

We were very pleased with our experience.

My wife and I stopped at Misty Peaks for one night on our two month tour of NZ and Australia and it was one of the nicest places we stayed. The owners, Dave and Lea Bentley, really made our stay a pleasure and couldn't have done enough for us. The house is about 5 minutes walk from the town of Fox Glacier and it has wonderful views of Mount Cook and Mount Tasman which were clearly visible from our lovely bedroom. Dave and Lea designed and built the house around 9 years ago and it is obvious that they want all their guests to love the house as much as they obviously do. We left after a wonderful cooked breakfast and vowed we would, one day return to Misty Peaks!
