This place is a rare find. We have stayed in Twizel before, but the hotel we normally stayed at was booked and more expensive than our last visit. Everything in Twizel seemed booked or were slightly more expensive than we wanted to pay. So we booked this unit for 3 nights. The owner Maren is awesome! She is so sweet... More

We really enjoyed our two nights in the Mackenzie units. The staff could not have been more helpful even finding me an iron when I needed one. The bed was super "comfy" giving us two great nights of sleep. There was a large living room with kitchen including a full sized stove as well as a microwave. We headed the... More

We stumbled on these units unexpectedly. Initially we had looked at the motel when you just enter Twizel, but didn't like the look of them and saw these as we were driving around. There are only two units, but they are large, have everything you need and are very clean. the wifi was quite slow and you need to use... More

We were looking for an accommodation near the Mount Cook area and found it in Twizel: the Mackenzie Units. The rate cannot be beaten. Our unit had a very big living room with kitchen (with everything you need), two bedrooms and a simple clean bath with washing machine. The bed was good, also the WIFI. We recommend to buy fresh...

We came to Twizel for 2 weeks to go fishing and explore the area. We had 2 young children with us, and Mackenzie Units was just the perfect place for us. The unit was serviced to very high standards on a daily basis; sheets changed every few days, and any leftover dishes were also cleaned. It was great to have... More

There isn't a great range of accommodation options in Twizel. These motel units are next door to a larger complex, however these units are very modern and comfortable. Plenty of space for one - enough room for a family. I'd pick these small units over a larger establishment any time - just get in quick because these will book up... More
