“awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Few rooms, cozy, spacious and warm, to make every guest feel home.
10 minutes walking from the main (maybe the only) street of Fox Glacier small village, hosted by a nice and kind lady that welcomes every guest with a smile.
The B&B is really a living house where all guests can spend time and relax. It's very nice to sit on the sofa and talk to the host, or her friend or any other guest and share travel experience and/or suggestions.
Breakfast is served in the main dining room and all the guets sit together and enjoy the morning kick start - juices, jams, milk and coffee, eggs, bread...
In previous reviews also dinner was mentioned as available - unfortunately that is not possible anymore but you will be wisely suggested where to have dinner at
Rooms are very comfortable with plenty of space and amenities.
Wifi connections available
Every day, at 6.30pm, the host offers a glass of wine with some cheese to all her guests - a real plus.
There is also the opportunity to be picked up/dropped of at the bus station in case of need
I would really recommend to spend your time at the glaciers at Fox (better than Franz J) and at Misty Peaks!

Just had one night here. Lovely room, warm and good quality. Felt very welcomed by Lea and Dave. They do a great job as hosts and the breakfast was excellent. Particularly enjoyed chatting to them and other guests around a bottle or two of wine and a plate of cheese they serve each afternoon as a sort of canapes / happy hour session.
Their recommendation for places to eat and things to see were great, and Lea does bookings for the Helicopter trips from the nearby field.
Its about a 10 minute leisurely stroll into the main street / pub, which is great if you intend to have a few drams.
They've got that mix of small size, personal touch and great surroundings that make staying here far more of an 'experience' than just a night in a motel. Its memorable, not just a sleep!

From the minute we arrived, our hosts Lea & Dave made us feel very welcome. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable. Drinks at 6.30pm were great with much laughter by all. In fact, we had to drag ourselves away to go out for dinner! Breakfast is a feast and I must say watching Dave slave over the hot stove was deserved - pay-back for his wonderful acerbic humour! Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts - down to making last minute scenic flight bookings with the helicopter tour operators who fly from right outside the back door! For a warm and friendly atmosphere in comfortable accommodation look no further.

The Misty Peaks is located 2 mins from fox glacier center and 50 meters from a Helicopter base. So all the activities you desire can be easily started from here.
The lodge offers five rooms, ous was good in size and had a nice bathroom. Very useful is that you can bring in your luggage through the terrace windows and you can go there with the car to unload.
Breakfast is nice with fruits and cereals and some warm options that are freshly prepared. The coffee was the best one we found in NZ.
So, great place to stay, absolutely recommended.

Lea and David go out of their way and work so hard to provide a wonderful stay for their visitors.
Highly highly recommended!

We were so happy we found Misty Peaks B&B on line. After tramping through Fox Glacier and also Lake Matheson, we were warmly welcomed by Lea and shown to our lovely room. Bathroom was immaculate and amenities in the room were very thoughtful. Lea invited us to join her and other guests at the B&B for wine and cheese at 6:30PM, which was so nice. Great conversations with very friendly folks. Breakfast was cooked by Dave, and what wonderful smells came out of the kitchen. Eggs, bacon, sausage, and toast along with several cold choices. No need for lunch that day! Thanks, Lea and Dave, for a superb stay. We wish you continued success and good health.

We took two rooms for two days at Misty Peaks and it was terrific. The owner (Lea) made us feel right at home, It was as though we were staying with good friends. The rooms et al are in immaculate condition, very quiet, comfortable and convenient. From our room we could see an amazing sunset that turned the snowy peak of Mt. Cook a beautiful pink.Highly recommended!
