                  We were happy with our stay here. Clean, nice big room. Friendly staff, ample parking, close to town. Just wish it had an elevator as we had a lot of bags and on 2nd floor.

                  Stayed one night in December and found the hotel check in - out process easy. Staff were friendly (even though working Christmas). Accommodation generally older but the room was comfortable, clean and had suitable facilities. Free parking behind the hotel was good. The hotel was very well located near the main street and with easy access to Lake Wanaka

                  Intended to visit Aoraki / MT Cook but no reasonable accomodation was available over there. Stayed here as an alternative option which turned out to be quite good. Like an old hotel, very spacious with two queen beds inside. My room on the ground floor was open to a park which was nice. Tea and coffee were plenty. However the wifi was slow. I have eaten in the in-house restaurant but a good restaurant Poppie was virtually opposite this hotel.

                  The hotel is not clean enough to up to hotel standard. As soon as we put down our languages, we saw dead fly on floor, dusty corner. Sticky bathroom floor. Very disappointed with the old facilities, the picture on the website shows the facilities are not as old as what we had on the night. Heater of the room making a lot of noises at night when sleep. It wasn’t a pleasant stay for us.

                  twizel is a great place to stay, not only to visit mount cook, which is approx 55kms away, but also the town itself is very modern, and has a great atmosphere, seemingly for visitors and locals alike. lovely places to eat, some with live music and entertainment, a number of shops, eateries and community happenings centred around a modern "town square". we enjoyed our stay at the mackenzie country inn, the weather was great, so we could actually see mount cook from our room, which was exciting. we enjoyed a lovely buffet meal at the inn's restaurant (not always buffet apparently), and were very happy with the friendly service and helpful and cheerful receptionist.

                  We really enjoyed staying here. Lots of group tourists seem to use this hotel when they travel between Queenstown and Christchurch. Our kids enjoyed playing in backyard of hotel. Also, there is one good restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also, you can walk to the city center given Twizel is really small city. Interior is a bit old but it is OK given most people stay here for only 1 night, I guess. If you travel between QT and CC, this hotel can be a place to stay on the way.

                  We have arrived very late, the hotel restaurant has closed already, and no other restaurant open ouside the hotel, the reception asked their bar to lend bowls to us then we can cooking some instant noodle in our room. The queen bed room was commodiously, clean, good view and quietly. And this Inn located near by Mt. Cook and lake Pukaki, but cheaper than those hotel and hostels up on the moutain valley, I think it is the best balance for both distance and price if you are going to Mt. Cook next morning. There are 2-3 supermakets around the Inn, easy to purchase.

                  Location

                  We arrived to find the hotel is now named Mackenzie Country Inns which was a confusion. It was explained that the hotel is undergoing re branding but this is vital for people new to the area that the name given at booking matches the name of the hotel. we only booked a week before staying and had Twizel been a larger town this could have been a bigger issue. The room was large enough with a view over the garden but it really would benefit from a refurbishment. The beds were uncomfortable, Way too soft, So much so my partner chose the floor as a better option but the carpet was smelly also. Overall I am sure when or if the refurbishment is done it would be a nice place to base yourself but until this happens I would recommend people look at other hotels first. Installing Air Con would be a must if I were advising on improvements
