          Stayed just for one night with a group of friends on vintage car run. Excellent unit, well appointed and warm. Close to town and staff very friendly. Can recommend as a good place to consider when you are staying in Twizel.

          hi there, we took the wonderful drive from Twizel to Mount Cook Village. it took approx 50 mins by car. Probably allow longer because you'll want to stop for photos!
