Just stayed one night but really liked it. The chalets are so cute looking. Our room was a really decent size with a separate little kitchen which was handy. The kitchen had a fridge, toaster, kettle, microwave and hob. The internet was free which is good for New Zealand. You get a log in voucher for the internet and it...

We enjoyed our stay here. We had 5 adults in a chalet and it was ok...not too cramped. It was close to town and fairly quiet. The wireless in the room was terrible and outside in the cold it wasn't much better so their range should be something they look at improving. We ended up not using it as it...

As we were going out the door after booking into a motel unit, the owner upgraded us to a larger unit. The unit was very well appointed. It had heat-pumps in the lounge and the bedroom which very quickly raised the cool temperature upon entry. All the facilities were present with a very comfortable bed - the most important item...

Good accommodation in Twizel. Good facilities and comfortable accommodation. Would stay with them again. Queen bed in separate room and 3 single in the loft above the lounge area. Kitchen had full oven, microwave, good size fridge and small freezer box in it. Heat Pump worked well to heat the unit.

This motel just located beside the main road to Mont. Cook. We were driving from Queenstown to Twizel, and we should take the 2nd exit turn left from the main road then turn left again that is the motel. But we make a mistake to take the 1st turning left. To enter Twizel total got 3 exits so take 2nd...

This motel is currently undergoing a revamp by the owner - well done. Although the unit was cold when we walked in, once the heat pumps kicked in - yep there were 2 - one in the living room and a 2nd in the bedroom, it sooner warmed up. Had the best sleep of our holiday there as bed extremely...

We originally booked at another Twizel hotel but switched to this motel due to much better TripAdvisor reviews and it was cheaper. It is also just as convenient for Poppies restaurant, where we planned to eat. We probably should not have switched. The motel staff were very helpful and check in was efficient. The individual one bedroom unit was quite...

Stayed here for access to Mt Cook. The Chalet we stayed in was basic but roomy and comfortable and a good price. Location was very quiet and had a good night sleep. WiFi was also very good in the chalet.

The studio is self contained with necessary items for cooking, ironing. Heating is good with a ceiling fan for circulation. Bed is firm and comfortable. The unit we were in faces East and the scenery was beautiful at sunrise. Town Centre is just a short drive away. Carl is friendly and helpful.

Twizel itself is hardly an exciting place to spend a holiday but it is so close to Mt.Cook that it is more than worth while (for your wallet) to spend a night there rather than in the overprized places beneath Mt.Cook. Mountain Chalets look cute and contain everything that four people may need for a good rest after a long...
