This was a really cute chalet with timber ceilings that added to the charm. We got the one bedroom unit and it was very comfortable. Had full kitchen facilities and a nice lounge suite.The unit had terrible lighting especially if you were in the kitchen, the taps were really old fashioned and hard to regulate the shower. This will be...

Basically, nothing wrong with the A frame self contained cottages, if you don't mind being stuck in a distant time warp away from current common standards. It is clean, and it all works, but it is so yesteryears. The piddley shower pressure (un)controlled by a "one knob" Felton Mix is at least 2 generations old (you can only control temperature,...

Booked this place entirely based from reviews as well. We just basically wanted a midway stop for our trip to Queenstown from Christchurch. Travelling as a family of five (two kids and my mom), I must say we hit a jackpot when we find this place. The place is self contained with a pretty much basic I should say but...

Twizel is a very small town, where u can easily locate the Mountain chalet Motels. the motel is built by several standing wooden chalets. the inside space is quite enough, also very clean and comfortable. u can park your cars just in front of the chalet door. there's no food supplied in this motel, but each chalet has its own...

It is always difficult to find accommodation that will allow pets. We have a German Shepherd who is very well behaved but she is part of the family and we take her with us on our getaways. The Mountain Chalet Motel is a wonderful place to rest and relax. There are lovely walks nearby and the scenery will take your...

After booking here for a stopover on our way to Queenstown, I read a few reviews (did things the wrong way round!!) and got a little nervous. But then we thought its only 1 night, and its only cheap. The day we were due to arrive in Twizel, our trepidation grew, particularly after we had spent a night at an...

Stayed for a couple of nights in August, wasn't expecting anything too fantastic from our research on Twizel but it wasn't too bad. The buildings themselves were better than expected, newer than they look in photos and clean and tidy, plenty of room inside. Wi Fi was ok as well. Being in such a cold area it would have been...

We booked this place just based on photos and were not disappointed. It was lovely and warm when we arrived, we enjoyed our room so much we ended up going to the shops for supplies and staying in for the night. Chalet room was excellent with a comfy bed and more room than we expected. The snow was a bonus.

Having started the driving journey from Christchurch in the beginning of winter, Twizel is a quaint place to stop over for a break. We arrived Twizel with no expectations and to be greeted by a cottage to each family is a treat. Check in was swift in the office at the front, keys to the cottage was handed over and...
