Delightful Restful”

Someone asked why we were staying in Twizel - it was a dump! We entirely disagree. The motel was off the main road and looked out on birch trees. Twizel means town of trees, and they were beautiful in Autumn. Small village-y feel. By the way - no mountain view from the cabin. Kitchen intuitive, bed comfortable, shower great, lounge great. Very good base en route from Lake Tekapo and close to Mt Cook.

Good place to prepare for Mt Cook activities”

Twizel is very near to Mt Cook and Mountain Chalet is right by the highway, but less than half the price of the equivalent at Mt Cook Village. Good location, friendly staff and clean units. Would totally recommend.

Great stop over”

Location Location Location

We had travel up from Christchurch for a long weekend, it's a 3.5 hour drive so very glad to be given the keys and in our warm and cozy chalet within seconds of arrival. I was a freezing mid winter day but the chalet had been warmed before we arrived. There is not a lot to do in Twizel except a few great places to eat so a snug place to chill out and watch TV and relax was very welcome.

We came to twizel when road closed due to heavy snow. We didn't expected much at first but only to find a shelter. However, it was really a surprise to find the big,warm,comfortable room of the motel. And the hosts were helpful with the ways out of snow so that we wouldn't miss the flight.

everything is good. i like hotel design n location. it's located on the road which's paralel with highway and just 3 mins to downtown shopping centre by car. Also the room i stayed is in studio type. There are kitchen(w full equipment) and toilet. The hotel also has laundry house which i can clean up my cloth after long journey. Just one thing, The hotel sign at night time is unclear n i couldn't find the hotel until i rechecked w my gps twice n passed the hotel 3 times. the reception's closed at 8 pm. However, if i go to Twizel, i will stay here again.!!

Quality Room, Good amenities, Easy Access

Was in Twizel for a stopover enroute to the south. Pleasantly surprise the space, the amenities and facilities provided. Shower was good. There was a mini kitchen which was well equipped. We came from a country with free WiFi easily accessible at anywhere - so, we felt the hotel could be more generous with their WiFi. Overall a comfortable stay and would recommend to our friends and family.

Eclectic place”

We stayed one night at Mountain Chalet. Our chalet was a single unit. It was a bit tricky to get to as it was behind other units that faced the parking lot. Ours faced the neighbor's fence across a grassy parking area. The unit was quite adequate for an overnight stay.

Location is near to Twizel town. Wooden design and beds in the attic looked cosy. Exlcusive parking space just at the door. step

We loved the entire chalet design, the internal wood design made us feel warm and cosy. My children are glad to have the whole attic area to themselves. We stayed at Unit #6 that is directly opposite the guest laundry which ebabled me to frequently checked my washing. Toilets and shower rooms are clean too. Would recommend this chalet for small family of 4 to 5.

Close to town centre and Mt Cook

Stayed here for 3 nights while we explored the Mt Cook area. Twizel is very underrated and makes an excellent base to explore Mount Cook as well as the surrounding lakes etc. We stayed in one of the cheaper open plan chalets which was perfectly acceptable for our needs. Wifi although offered was very erratic.
