From a friendly welcome to a clean room and a great restaurant this centrally located hotel does exactly what it says it does, and offers a fantastic affordable stay in Twizel. Our room had a balcony and offered great mountain views - the breakfast was a perfect start to the day. Not often we stop in Twizel but if we... More

On a clear cloudless night you can see the stars. It is stunning! And on a clear morning if you pick the right table at brekkie you can see Mt Cook! Rooms are spacious and large. The heater is a tad annoying, more so when you are trying to sleep. Bathrooms are average at best.

I know the town is small but this establishment was a disappointing experience for our tour group of four. Under renovation at present, the rooms were very ordinary, the bar food poor and the general experience not worth the agents booking fee.

Very comfortable and value for money. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were a great size and beds comfy. The motel is undergoing extensive renovations to modernize the interior. Good breakfast and dinner menu. Jack the cat is a real character. Despite the age of the complex it had quite a charm.

We have stayed several times here as a stopping point on our way south and it is so consistent with its presentation, staff and restaurant. We always enjoy our stay. The rooms are quite big and a little dated but very clean and comfortable. The staff are so helpful and friendly so that even though its a rather large sprawling... More

We had a fantastic Mid Winter stay, room was warm and inviting with a great view. One of the best buffet breakfasts that I have had on the first morning. Staff very helpful in all departments. The resident cat was a lovely touch.

I really enjoyed my stay here. It's a little out of the way and usually people stay here when travelling to/from queenstown. It has a small and cosy reading room, and the area outside the breakfast area is nice for taking a short walk too. The town is also a walkable distance away, though there isn't much to see. We...

Hotel was clean and staff were nice. However, it was quite cold when we were there and the hallways were quite cold. We had quite a walk to the dining room and had to climb up and down stairs to get across to our rooms. TIP: there is a heater on the wall in the bathroom that activates with a... More
