Had a one night stay. Jo, the owner, was so friendly in settling us it. The room was warm and had beautiful fragrance. Everything was thoughtfully prepared including bathrobes, makeup remover, cotton buds etc (BYO toothbrush and paste).The lodge has a nice common living space overlooking a pond with wine,tea, coffee, cookies and fruits. The breakfast was prepared by the owners - homemade with toast, eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms.

Very romantic place for couples who can afford a little splurge.

Extremely comfortable, lovely room and bathroom, every desirable amenity, and helpful friendly hosts. Fabulous views from the bedrooms, and a very good cooked breakfast. There are four rooms, so every chance you will meet like-minded couples for an evening nightcap and star gazing. A little out of town, so very peaceful and quiet.

There are three good restaurants (one Indian cuisine) in Twizel so good choice for dining.

Room tip: All rooms have the same view with an outdoor setting, but remain private.

Warm and attentive hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. Luxurious room with amazing views. The facilities were fabulous, a wide range of drinks available including a complimentary one. Homemade cake and biscuits available to all guests. Everything that you could think of to make it feel like a luxurious home from home.

Comfortable bed and exactly as pictured on website. A slice of heaven is Jo and Peter’s place, great hosts warm and welcoming with great advice and even better breakfasts. Twizel is a great place to stay and visit others places which aren’t far. Thank you both of you for ur hospitality and if we are ever back in New Zealand will be back at your place. Perfect ending to a great 3 week trip in north and south loved the lodge❤️

Simply fabulous. From the moment we arrived to such a friendly warm greeting we felt welcome. The joy continued as we entered the premises, everything first class. Magnificent living area, sensational bedroom. All well equiped with classy fixtures. And then the view. In both day and night It is so scenic. Don’t take my word for it. Treat yourself to a night or two !!!!!
