High Peaks Hotel

Reviewed 1 November 2012

From the moment we arrived to the time we left Marlene (the owner) was wonderful and so very helpfull with a great sense of humour. The hotel its self was very comfy and the rooms were very large a clean. The views of the mountains from the resturant window is breath taking. We just wished we had booked another night.

I really liked this motel. Very comfortable king sized bed and the owners really are lovely. Great views of the mountains and close to town. Would definitely come back here again if I was in the area.

Just out of town, this family run hotel was an absolute delight. The owners were friendly and helpful, bending over backwards for you, and the rooms were modern, clean, comfortable, warm and spacious. I would definitely stay here if I came back to Fox Glacier!

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the great location and excellent quality of this hotel. Marlene and Alan, the owners were wonderful hosts. The rooms are super clean and spacious. The entire property was very well kept. Nice views of the mountains from the hotel. The restaurant was closed at the time we were there but they always called us the night before to ask if we wanted to have breakfast. Breakfast was superb. We loved this place. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Fox Glacier.

Was concerned about staying here based on some Trip Advisor reviews - needn;t have worried. Staff were excellent, room was very spacious, free internet. And the views across the car park to Mount Cook at sunset were to die for! Very handy for Fox Glacier town centre, helicopter flights and Lake Matteson - would definately stay here again.

We only stayed for one night as our heli-hike was cancelled due to bad weather. Hotel was very clean and rooms well appointed. Bed was very comfy, had the best night sleep during our trip in new Zealand.
Would stay here again.
