We stayed here one night. the older lady at reception was friendly & helpful. Unhappy with our chalet though. For $124/night AUS, we expected more for the money. Could feel the springs in the bed which was old & hard, no little comforts of other NZ motels we stayed at like tissues, shampoo, conditioner etc. Chalet has old furniture &...

We enjoyed staying at these cute chalets to start our South Island trip. The chalets were clean and tidy and the kiddies loved staying upstairs. Was quite the adventure! Really well designed chalets to fit our family of 5 comfortably!

The accommodation was adequate but lacked space around the chalets for outside dining and relaxing. The communal BBQ was good. Convenient for the local shops but Twizel does not offer much. The motel is very well placed for trips to Mount Cook.

We had a refreshing one-night stop here en route from Christchurch to Alexandra. Our one-bedroom chalet was well equipped, including TVs in both the lounge and bedroom. We liked the atmosphere of the A-frame chalet compared to regular motels – no noise from any next-door guests through a thin wall! We would certainly stay here again. Twizel itself doesn’t have...

We had a lovely stop here. Fresh and clean in a great spot. Wish we had al least another day. Really quiet location, not far from shops and restraunts . Lovely little shopping centre. We really enjoyed ourselves, grandma, mum and grandson.

Found this place on the off chance whilst traveling from Christchurch to Queenstown, I can honestly say it was the best Motel i've ever stayed at. The location in the small town of Twizel is handy for main shops but not to close for noise, the rooms are set in little cabins that are truly wonderful like little log cabins....

We just happened to drive past the Mountain Chalets as we were looking for somewhere to stay for the night and we were so glad that we did! We were greeted by Kyle, the manager who was really helpful and friendly and even let us choose which chalet we wanted. It was really cute and a typical mountain chalet type...

The accomodation was very refreshing after travelling the south island in peak season and finding accomodation to be difficult to find ad very expensive. Very reasonably priced. Clean with everything you need and I do love the chalet style.... bike hire available and close to everything.

A lovely chalet with a unique look. The rooms were clean and tidy and look well looked after. The staff were extremely friendly and happy to help out in any way. Our kids enjoyed the stay and we would definitely stay again.

I love the fact that they are individual chalets therefore you dont have any neighbour noise! The chalets are well designed and clean. They have a variety of sized chalets - we had a one bedroomed one, and saw our friends two bedroomed, two storied chalet. The beds are comfy and their is a hot water/airing cupboard to dry any...
