I stayed here for one night as a stopover from Queenstown to Christchurch. We arrived quite late in the day and was happy with the quick and easy check-in. When we saw our room, we were pleasantly surprised with how large it was - easily the largest room we had in our 2-week tour of NZ. The room was also very well-furnished and well-equipped. I used and liked the luggage shelf next to the TV - the other motels I stayed at did not have such a feature.
There was a proper heater in the room was very effective in keeping us warm. There was a thunderstorm on the night that we were there but we felt really warm and safe inside the room. The following day, we heard people saying that some homes had had black-outs and such due to the storm, but we were glad the motel wasn't affected.
However, the towel rack's heating did not seem to be working even though I turned the switch on. Not sure if there was something else I needed to do to activate it.
There was a back porch leading to a well-kept garden. It was raining so we had to drive to the town to find a place for dinner. It was only a 3-minute drive away to the restaurants and supermarkets. Parking is available right outside your door, which was very convenient!
Owner was very friendly and warm. When checking in, I noticed a KLCC Twin Tower bell at the reception counter. It was a nice little detail which made me feel honoured as I live in Malaysia. I will definitely stay here again if I ever go back to Twizel.
