We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2005. It was vey cheap (£35 per night) so I wondered what we'd get. We got a cosy little A-frame chalet that was clean and excellent value for money. The kitchenette was tiny but fine for making a bit of breakfast. There was a heater in the bedroom as well as a portable one which we used to warm up the bathroom in the mornings as it was winter and chilly out. There was a handy coin laundry and the host was very friendly and helpful. It was just a couple of minutes drive to the shops and restaurants. Be warned that Twizel at night is rather low on excitment! I can recommend Lou's Fish and Chips and there are two restaurants and a bar. It is however a beautiful part of the country and and an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. If you are a Lord of the Rings fan there is a tour of the location used for the battle of Pellennor Fields bookable at the information centre in town, I really enjoyed it.
