“Top quality restaurant away from the crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Watch for my comments regarding our stay at the Hotel, excellent chef, friendly service, good choice of wine and beers, more than expected away from the city streets

“good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We stayed at the High Peaks hotel which was lovely and such great surroundings. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was very good. The wild salmon was delicious and the preparation unique. The venison and the pasta were very good also! Would definitely recommend this restaurant for dinner when you're in the area to see the beuatiful Matheson reflection lake.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Sitting at a table, looking directly at Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, absolutely unsurpassed views, after an excellent venison hot pot and scrumptious salmon, followed by a to-die-for chocolate and boysenberry pudding... I strongly recommend the restaurant. Great meals, superb views and great service: more than you expect in a resort town, for sure!

“Very good food with friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

I only had a coffee and a snack there as I was not in town for long but it was certainly better than the Mount Cook Hotel.
