We just spent two nights here taking in the glaciers and had a great stay. The rooms were exactly as described and we were very well looked after. We loved the location as it was quiet and very restful!

Finding accommodation hard to get both in Franz Josef and Fox Glacier, this hotel was about the only one that we could get one night. Having to pay just on $NZ200.00 we found rather expensive just for a bed for the evening.

I'm glad I chose this location. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was huge. The property was clean. There is no air conditioning which is the norm. So on the hot day I was there you had to keep the window open all night. But, it was quiet as the other guests were respectful. The wifi and television... More

The hotel is nice and clean, service is excellent, we got a large room, however, the hotel is far from village center (1.7 km). This is not considered as walking distance. If you need just to grab something from the supermarket you have to take your car. Wifi connection (operated by Zenbu) is awful. You receive your access code from... More

We had debated whether to stay in Franz Josef or Fox and were very happy with our decision to go with Fox and to stay at High Peaks. It does indeed have a view of the high peaks (and particularly Mount Cook) which decided to show themselves at dusk after a very cloudy day. The motel is well located, clean... More

The hotel is a little out of town but you could easily walk if you wanted to. Personally I love peace and quiet so the location was perfect. There is no noise and we had a great night's sleep. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. There is little noise from adjoining rooms. The owner is lovely and can't help... More

This is a lovely, homely place. It is clean, modern and well located. While not walking distance to the centre of town, it is only a couple of minutes drive to the centre of town. The owners are lovely people who are keen to help. The rooms are comfortable and helped me relax and the breakfast was hearty and a... More

Stayed here for one night just as a stop over to see the glaciers, nice clean room with big bed and bathroom, decent shower and friendly, good service, wifi vouchers were included in the room which is also a bonus and we had 300mb each. Highly recommend!

My partner & I stayed here along with my son & his girlfriend on 29th December as part of a "Road Trip" from Christchurch to Hanmer Springs. The lady-owner who we checked in with was very friendly and helpful, and check-in was really easy. The rooms were exceptionally clean & the beds were very comfortable, with lovely clean bedding &...
