We didn't stay at this Motel but used the restaurant. The staff were very friendly and all seemed fine BUT it took just over the hour for our meal to be served and when it arrived it was not very good - it was also more expensive compared to all the other restaurants we've eaten in during our 3 week...

Very clean room. Basic in style and decor but totally functional. They do provide in room mini bar. There is also an attached Monthieth's Brew Pub which does meals and provides room service. We did not eat there though. A bit far of a walk to the town center. Had a great meal at Lake Matherson Cafe, worth the drive...

the hotel/motel was fine and what you would expect for the money. The service was fabulous. We had arranged to take a helicopter ride to the top of the glacier. My wife did not have any closed toe shoes and it seemed likley we might have to forfeit the trip. We talked to Aman the manager of High Peaks and...

We reserved one of their rooms with a spa bathtub. The room was nice, clean, big with a comfortable bed (a bit too soft for my taste). The general manager was friendly and very helpful, location is a bit far to walk into town, but no issue when you have a car.

Upon arrival we found out our booking was only for two instead of three but that was quickly corrected by the new owners. Our booking was handled by the previous owner, hence the mix-up. It appeared we were the only ones staying at the hotel so it was extremely quiet to stay there and plenty of parking space. The downside...

Lovely hotel outside of town which was not an issue as we had a hire car. The rooms were freshly renovated and lovely. Quite retro. The new manager had just taken over, and he was very helpful and the Staff friendly.. We would have definitely tried out the restaurant but was not being re-opened until the following week.

We arrived at Fox Glacier after a 3 day Copland Trek & found High Peaks on internet. The owners are very friendly, very spacious rooms, excellent shower with toiletries included. Washing machine & Dryer were perfect for our wet & dirty hiking gear. Very comfortable bed! We were presented with a free bottle of wine for the inconvenience as they...

Booked online through booking.com no problems experienced on arrival. Payment deferred until arrival which was a major factor in choosing this motel. Check in was friendly and professional. We had the rooms with the entry directly to outside. Room and en-suite were modern, clean and well maintained. Bed was a good size for a couple and comfortable. Free WiFi with...

Excellent hotel/motel, surrounded by beautiful mountains and glaciers view, located a bit out of the village, which makes it quiet and peaceful. Really comfortable and clean room, good bed and pillows, huge bathroom, great shower. The lovely lady at the reception (Malene) was very friendly and helpful and gave to us good recommendations about where to eat and go. Thank...

This was a nice and clean hotel. The rooms are small and simple but nice enough. I did feel it was a little over priced for what it was given other places we had stayed at for less that seemed nicer near by. Our room was inside a hallway so no great views. Our view was of the parking lot....
