Found this little "gem" of a motel at the base of the Fox Glacier. The staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. The rooms were clean cosy and warm and very nicely decorated. The laundry room had all new machines which was very useful as we had been on the road for several weeks . Had an excellent meal at the motel restaurant with great views of Mount Cook. Would definately recommend this motel.

This is your run of the mill, stop over during a long drive type motel. Australians can liken this to the Golden Chain and Best Western types. The room was comfortable and clean. We were not able to get breakfast as the resturant was closed, however the lady said it was reopening in October. The ladies at the desk were very helpful in recommending a resturant for dinner. We went to Plateau for dinner and it was very nice. Besides the glaciers we did not notice much else to do which was why we only stayed the one night and we found it very satisfactory.

After my first choice hotel was fully booked, they referred me to the High Peaks Motor Lodge. Prices were average for the area, in general horrendously overpriced compared to the rest of the South Island.
The motel itself was spotless but lacked warmth and character. I had booked the 'honeymoon suite' but this was basically a big room with a jacuzzi bath. It seemed like the room was brand new but they made a mistake painting the walls grey.... The Motel is in an ok location, about a 10 minute walk into the main street of Fox and the reception staff were very helpful.
Overall an average experience but compared to some of the other fantastic places we stayed in the South Island, it doesn't get a glowing review from me.
