We stayed here one night, en route on the A2O bike trail. Great accommodation in a 2 roomed cottage. Very comfortable and convenient and good price. However the service topped that with owner/ manager loaning us her car when we had to backtrack to Tekapo.

This is probably the worst hotel we have stayed in so far. The basic twin room is 3 by 3 meters (10 by 10 ft) and has no dedicated bathroom or toilet (!!). It is not explicitly advertised during room selection on a well known booking website, and it does not show on the final booking page either, for you... More

Twizel is probably the sort of place that you pass through on the way to larger centres however we decided to stop over for the night. The camp ground is well sited and had recently changed hands. The new owners were very keen to make us welcome and we parked the campervan in a lovely quiet spot with a great... More

We have stayed at other motor camps but this place was exceptional. When I booked an ensuite cabin I expected a small room with a bed and a bathroom. We had our own tv room with a fridge a large bathroom and a very comfortable bed as well as tea coffee and toast making facilities. We shared the kitchen facilities... More

Check in went quick and smoothly, owners were nice and helpful. Our rooms were clean and showers hot. Prices were reasonable for accomodation. We stayed in lodges. Location is a good base for nearby tourist activities. We did the mount cook walking trail, fish farm and a lord of the rings tour. Twizel is a nice little town in a... More

Centrally located, well set out, but ruled by a manager/owner who is rude. Our initial welcome was punctuated with the words " listen to this as I will only tell you once and once only". He spurted so much information initially that it was too hard to follow everything. Later in the evening we were berated for using the wrong... More

This facility has beautiful surroundings and very comfortable self-contained rooms and beds which are ensuite and quite nice. The place is well kept and from the surface there is not much to complain about. The "free wifi" is however a 100mb voucher code and after that you have to pay for wifi. When we arrived we were shown around and... More

The accommodation itself is grand for what it is and could have even been an enjoyable enough place to stay only for being irredeemably let down by the behaviour of the man running the place. From the second we arrived a tension fills the air as a laundry list of rules are dictated and we were barely able to enjoy... More

2nd time staying in this fantastic holiday park. Awesome friendly & welcoming owners. We had a 2 bedroom self contained unit this time. Fantastic room with everything we needed and a lovely view out to the mountains. We love Twizel and a great alternative to busy and pricey Lake Tekapo & Mt Cook. We spent the day in Mt Cook... More
