I get that times are tough but being perhaps the only guests in the establishment you would think you might be made to feel welcome as opposed to a hindrance or a hassle… the place is desolate and not much fun at all… bland as you could get. While not terrible I’d look elsewhere if I had my time again!

Limited rooms available due to Covid. Dine in breakfast not available due to low occupancy numbers. Dinner restaurants only open 3 or 4 nights a week for the same reason. Room on ground floor had lovely garden view. Television picture not great - kinda fuzzy - not crisp/sharp. Bathroom dated - shower over bath.

This is a large hotel in Twizel and has been closed for some time because of Covid. Thus our room was cold but we heated it up satisfactorily and there were warm rooms around reception to relax in. In the late afternoon the fire was lit and a great place to enjoy a drink before dinner. Food was good pub food and beautifully cooked.

Whilst the food was good the service could be improved. It was one waitress on her own, there was only three table including us so not busy. Water took for ever to come out. Then she spent ages at the bar talking to friends so LOUDLY, we know her plans for the next month or so!! Pleasant lady but come & ask us how our meals are, clear our plates, when taking our order don't just stand there looking at us, tell us what you are there for.

We stayed here for one night on a group tour with AATKings. Our large room was comfortable but it had no air condition. The lobby and the bar area needs refurbishment, including all the worn out carpets. Our dinner and breakfast was good.
