We had a lovely long weekend staying here. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. The buffet meals they put on for our group were very tasty and economical. Breakfast was yummy and had everything we needed. We had a great weekend in Twizel with perfect weather. This hotel is very warm also especially in the winter.

dated hotel, nice buffet meal for $38 but for the $160 you pay for accommodation surely you would expect Sky TV in your rooms- well you don't. Friendly staff. Accommodation guide stated you receive Prime TV ( so I could watch the Olympic's) didn't have Prime TV, rand reception - no answer!! Don't think I would stay again

We hadn't been here for a few years and were disappointed that they charge a fee for using your credit card to pay for accommodation. You also pay for Wifi unless you use it in their lobby or bar. Our room was clean and tidy, but the style is looking tired. We opted for their A la Carte menu in...

The room we had was simple, not fancy but a good place to rest after a day on a tour bus. The bed had a massive deep down bed cover like sleeping on a cloud - which is good if you like a soft bed. The room temp was cool but also had a huge duvet to keep you warm...

After a great welcome we found our room walking down the hallway but rooms not so warm. Facilities in the more expensive wing are worth it. A cute place in the middle of nowhere. Staff great and a quiet place.

Located just outside of the main town of Twizel, this quaint Country Inn is in a quiet location with onsite parking and close to a Salmon farm. Upon arrival the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast in the morning had a great variety and breakfast staff were caring and friendly too. Our room was comfy even though...

We stayed here for one night and have done previously so that we can enjoy the world class fishery nearby in the canals. The building from the outside looks fabulous and reflects the Mackenzie country. The outside shell however disguises an inner that probably has had little done to it since its initial build, I would guess in the 1970's....

Our tour group spent a night here... quaint little hotel in the midst of the mountain scenery. The staff was friendly, the food in the restaurant was good (not great), and the bar / lounge was cozy... Lounge area can get busy (free Wi-Fi), but if you stay up later, it's a great place to relax... especially when it's cooler...

The rooms x 2 were great and had a lovely view. The staff seemed disinterested in us and it was evident that we were an interruption to their day. The Wi-Fi was hit and miss and we had to be in a particular part of the motel to gain access to it.
