“Excellent B&B”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

After a long drive from Aoraki/Mt Cook we arrived at Misty Peaks late in the afternoon. Lea greeted us immediately and showed us to our room. We were on our Honeymoon Holiday and were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite. The next morning Lea made us breakfast and it was a great way to start the morning. On our return from the day, we enjoyed a glass of wine with the hosts Dave and Lea and the other Misty Peaks guests. Our Honeymoon Suite was beautifully decorated with a lovely jacuzzi and a comfortable bed. The second morning, we again had a wonderful breakfast this time cooked by Dave. We enjoyed our two night stay very much and would not hesitate to stay at Misty Peaks the next time we are in the neighborhood. Dave and Lea were lovely hosts.

Room Tip: Splurge for the Honeymoon Suite.

Misty Peaks was great! It had the perfect feel of home with all of the conveniences of a hotel (plus some). Free wine (Dave pours a generous glass too) and nibbles when you show up. Dave gave great advice on walks around the area and was a great host. I will stay here again if I am ever in the area and will tell anyone I know that this is the place to stay if they visit.

A nicely presented house located a little away from Fox village but secluded and quiet. Rooms modern and well appointed with comfortable beds and french windows with views to the mountains.

The hosts are friendly and inquisitive, but I found their schedule too tight and inflexible - evening meeting drinks at 6.30 sharp and breakfast at or around 8.30 don't go down well when we have our own schedules to follow. I felt a little bit like a goldfish and a little uncomfortable.

Aside from that, they do a nice job of keeping their house up together and clean.

Hi
Just a quick reply to clear up some confusion in this review. Breakfast is anytime from 8.00 to 9.30 or 10.00 if you wish. If you need breakfast before 8.00 to meet other plans we will accommodate, no one has ever left hungry. Often we have people flying helicopters early then having breakfast later and i try to avoid everyone coming at once as i cook to order and that takes a little time.
From 6.30 to 7.30 in the evening we offer a complimentary glass of wine with a cheese board but this is not compulsory then we offer a la carte dinner from 7.30 as an optional extra. These times seem to suit most people who have stayed with us in the last eight years
Kind Regards
Lea and Dave

It was raining heavily when we reached fox glacier, thank god we had a warm welcome by the owners, Lea & Dave. The rooms are clean & warm, with heater & electric blankets provided. The tile floors in the bathroom is heated as well, to our amaze! The owners are friendly, we had a good chat that night, with a glass of complimentary wine. A must stay in fox glacier! Highly recommend!

After making a mistake on dates with our original booking Dave quickly helped sort this issue for us at no cost - arriving late into Fox Glacier our room was a welcome site - warm and lit up - the bed offered one of the best sleeps we had in NZ and finally a shower with some real water pressure! The morning yielded a fantastic cooked breakfast and a host more than willing to make the necessary calls to help us sort out bookings and issues with excursions - highly recommend this B&B - it is the best in Fox and a warm example of NZ hospitality - We'll be back!

Room Tip: Just ask - all the rooms are well appointed
