Very friendly host, and a good B&B. Room was spacious, bathroom was huge, and our hosts were very informative about where we could go for dinner in town. Twizel is a small town, so the options were limited, but our hosts gave us a thorough run through of all the available options. The big plus for us though was Tuffy,... More

We stayed here on our second night in New Zealand and was our first night on our Motorcycle tour of New Zealand. We were made to feel so welcome. It was lovely to be invited in for a drink with the other guests before we went out for dinner, which Korey kindly booked for us. It was lovely to meet... More

When looking for a place around Mt. Cook, we happened to luck out and chose the Aoraki Lodge in Twizel. Only minutes away from the park and beautiful riverbed, Aoraki offers you a chance to unwind after leaving hectic Queenstown and is still quite close to Mt. Cook for an amazing Hooker Valley hike. Korey and Anita were quite welcoming,... More

Everything you need to know is clearly explained and you are then invited to join the delightful hosts for a pre dinner drink in their very spacious lounge. Korey and Anita also have two lovely children who add to the homely... More

We stayed here for 2 days. We were late arriving but were warmly welcomed with a nice glass of wine by Korey & Anita. The ensuite room was very comfortable & the fresh flowers & cookies, a nice touch. Having free unlimited wifi was a bonus. Breakfast was plentiful & Anita adds a secret ingredient to her scrambled eggs, which... More

I can absolutely recommend this beautiful B&B . A friendly, guest oriented young family. The room was very clean and comfortable. A good restaurant and a little supermarket are just around the corner. We also had the chance to visit spectacular boot races.

We stayed for 3 nights in February and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room and bathroom were very clean and spacious, and there was plenty of choice for breakfast. The evening drinks were a great idea and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. Anita and Korey are very helpful, regarding things to do in the area, and they have lots of... More

We stayed one night in this cozy, homey B&B. We enjoyed the beautiful garden too. The service provided by Korey and Anita, who had only took over this B&B a few months ago, was impeccable: friendly reception, discount in the neighbouring restaurant "Poppies"( We can also recommend this fine restaurant), and lots of advice concerning landmarks and things to see...
