“Very good place to stay in Twizel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Travelled to Twizel from Rangiora, primarily to do one of the Lord of the Rings tours. We stayed for two nights in a one bedroom unit.

Walking distance to shops/ bars/eateries etc.

The motel is well maintained and our unit was very spacious, clean and well equipped. The decor was not overly modern, more homely in style. WIFI was free in the room, but limited to 200mb per day.

We enjoyed our time here and the LOR tour will pick you up from outside the room ( literally).

Friendly and helpful owners.

Definitely to be recommended.

My son and I stayed here in 2013 and when we came into Twizel last night and a party of 3, I didn't hesitate in booking here again. Would have to be one of my favorite motels it's nicely set up and very friendly service. We also walked up to Razza's Bar for a very nice pub meal.

Its a no frills motel with a very basic exterior but the room is just beautiful. We stayed here for a night after a drive from Christchurch and left quite early next morning for Mount Cook. Rooms are big and comfortable. Bathrooms are good sized and the kitchen unit has everything that you would need. Twizel is a cute little town and fallen leaves in the lawn next to the motel gave a lovely feel of the autumn. Owners are very good people and very helpful, would definitely recommend it.

We spent two nights here, traveling as a couple + relative.

Room was big, comfortable, quiet (although most of the rooms seemed occupied). Roll out bed for the third person was in fact a cupboard bed which I am told was very comfortable.

Great to have a spa bath after a day up and down mount john, and the following day after going up and down Sealy Tarns :)

Cooking facilities and cutlery/crockery pristine.

Laundry service on premises saved the day for us, and owner as full of great advice on what to do on the next leg of our journey (road to Dunedin).

WiFi was free and worked perfectly, but was not unlimited (100mb/day, very reasonable unless you are planning to spend the day watching movies or skyping..)

Twizel in itself a is perfect base for exploring Tekapo or Mt Cook, with a few eateries, a supermarket and an affordable petrol station.

Would definitely go back if I were staying around here again, and would strongly recommend to others.

Stayed here on the 10th April at the beginnning of our NZ trip, i cannot praise this small motel enough, The rooms are a good size and offer some cooking and breakfast facilities, including cutlery and crockery, it was excellent, so clean and confortable. You're within a short walk of the shopping and restaurant area of the town, which is very easy to get around. As the previous review said the town has a lot of soul. The owners are very nice people and so easy to deal with, would highly recommend to others.

Room Tip: We had the rooms with the sliding glass doors.

A lovely motel for an overnight stay in the Aoraki lakes region. The rooms are a good size and offer some cooking and breakfast facilities, including cutlery and crockery. You're within a short walk of the shopping and restaurant area of this former hydro town, which is very easy to get around. The town also has more "soul" than its more touristy counterpart, Lake Tekapo. The motel owners and staff were very easy to deal with and everything went smoothly. All in all, a good experience that I'd recommend to others.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room at the rear of the hotel. These have a glass sliding door opening out t...

Spent three nights here and was very impressed. The owner was really helpful and friendly and when I mentioned fishing he was able to make some good suggestions and provide helpful advice. The room was very comfortable, very clean, and very quiet despite being full on all 3 nights. The kitchenette facilities were sufficient for simple self catering. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities excellent although I didn't take advantage of the spa bath. Parking can be a bit tricky as there is not a lot of room.
Twizel is a handy place to stay for visits to Mt Cook and there is a good supermarket.
