We stayed one night in mid-November, passing through, and we were pleased to have booked here. The owners/managers were pleasant and helpful, and the hotel is very well made - no sound carries between rooms, which are large and well equipped. The exterior looks (perhaps disappointingly) somewhat like a standard Motel and indeed High Peaks has Motel aspects. The rooms have a separate sink in the bedroom beside that in the shower room. Our room also had a small fridge (a bit noisy), wine glasses, a kettle and coffee/ tea making sets. All of this we found helpful. As to location, it's set a bit out of Fox Glacier, away from the mountains, on the flat towards Lake Matheson. Rough bush separates and shields the hotel from the village, so the view of the mountains is uninterrupted - really brilliant the morning we left. Free wifi was welcome. We thought the evening meal offered (still just out of season) a bit limited as to menu and pricy, but appreciated what we ordered. For a night travelling through we found High Peaks very good.
