Rooms are nice, big and roomy. Comfy beds, and clean.; but attention to detail was lacking. But wi fi, seriously, is it 2015 or 1875. What is going on there? Frustrating found my electric blanket plus was bent beyond repair, and could not be used. Hotel restaurant had 5 star prices, but 3 star local. Better value wa during downwind... More

No lift was a bit of a shock when I discovered I was on the first floor, but I lugged my heavy gear up anyway. The room was spacious with a garden view. Shower over the bath but that seems to be common in NZ. Bathroom was sort of 70s style with dire warnings about failing to use the shower... More

Twizel is just right for an easy overnight stay for those driving Christchurch/Queenstown. It's also an easy drive to Aoraki/Mt. Cook too. The hotel is clean and quiet. The staff is professional and friendly. As far as we know, there wasn't an elevator, so be aware if you ask for a top floor. Ask for a room facing the garden;... More

Stopped in to do a couple of days work in the Waitaki. Nice hotel. Massive rooms. Friendly staff. Have a resident cat. The people behind me checked in with a horse. Even a paddock for that. I forgot my pillow. The rang and returned it to me. Great

A bit tired. Needs a refurbish. Dinner was ok, but a bit expensive. Everyone was very friendly. There was hair in the tub and on the shower walls, so not overly clean. Ok place to stop on way to Queenstown, but not great.

Mackenzie Country Inn was lovely and quiet. Twizel is a very small interesting town on the way from Queenstown to Christchurch. From there we drove to LakeTekapo and Mt Cook Glacier. Our room in the Inn was comfortable and clean.

Bathroom not cleaned (remaining hair left in bath tub, bathroom disgusting). Rooms are from the 80's. Hotel is completely outdated. Breakfast very pricy for what you get. Hotel management is clearly not willing to make any effort for a comfortable stay.

Our deluxe room, #60, was on ground level, looking into the car park so had no privacy alongside two adjoining noisy corridors. The room was equipped with the basic hotel-chain toiletries, the kitchenette minimal with one teaspoon but the bathroom towels were fluffy white and the bed linens were crisp. The bathroom had a shower over a bath with shower... More

A good place to stay, convenient to mount cook, lake tekapo etc, room was a good size, down side was it was $5 extra to get wifi for 24 hours. I mentioned this was strange to the receptionist, she agreed and noted it down. Hopefully they change this soon even if they include the extra $5 in the room rate... More
