We stayed in this motel complex as part of the A20 tour. Check-in was painless with no waiting around. The units are mostly A-frame chalets with plenty of room in the lounge/kitchen. Bedroom is average size with a comfy bed. Bathroom facilities are clean with a fairly spacious room. Cook your own or dine out at the local pub or...

My husband and I spent one night at Mountain Chalet Motels during our road trip from Christchurch to Queenstown. This was a great stopover point after visiting Mount Cook earlier in the day. We really enjoyed our accommodation and would have happily stayed a second night if we were staying in that area. Twizel seems a great "base" for many...

Three male friends on a fishing holiday. Getting into town late with not much booked and plenty of competition for available accommodation! Houston, we have a problem. Enter Mountain Chalet Motels who were really accommodating and six nights later - Houston we have a solution. The staff were super friendly and flexible in letting us have `The Lodge' - thank...

Our first experience with a motel in NZ and a fantastic one. At first I found it a little expensive for a motel, but that is because my expectations were a little low. Now, after being there for 3 nights I found it worth every penny. The location was superb, in walking distance of restaurants and a big supermarket and...

The chalets have a very typical shape. They are roomy and and a laundromat is available . As usual they are basic but clean and provide all you would need for a stay. Wifi is stable. The motel is located a 10 minute walk from the town center. Would visit again.

We stayed here for just one night and it was great for what we wanted. Well equipped and pretty comfortable. We had the 2 bedroom chalet which accomodated 5 adults comfortably. Lots of parking available and convenient location.

I was a little leery at first, thinking the units might be horribly out of date, but was pleasantly surprised. The unit we had was quaint and a nice fit for out family of 5 (our children are 15, 18 and 21). We only were able to stay one night, but I would definitely come back and stay for longer...

Room was spacious and clean and bed was comfortable. In a great central location and even though we were on the main road the chalets were quiet and private. It was warm and cosy. The plunger coffee was a nice surprise and we liked the containers of shampoo and soap (a nice change from the usual satchets). We had 8...

This is a budget place to stay compared to some of the other places available in town. It was neat and clean with basic kitchen facilities including hot plates. It was reasonable for the price but I found the people we dealt with were not unfriendly but quite disinterested.
