I stayed one night in this hotel on my way to Christchurch . My room was at the ground floor and looked over the street. Everybody could see me if I had the curtains open. There was no elevator and it was very difficult to carry your luggage if you had a room in the upper floor. Staff okk ....

Arrived here to find a very tired room with 1970s furniture and 1970s stains. Carpets filthy, furniture filthy. You can only have a 10 min shower each before hot water runs out lol. Please stay else where. Can't wait to leave !

Good basic hotel for a base to fly fish rivers around twizel. Rooms good size, restaurant adequate good bar. Friendly staff. Front door closes at 10pm which is too early when sunset is at 9:30pm. Our room key would not open the guest late night entry.

We booked this place for our one night in Twizel as we travelled to Queenstown. It's big and although a bit tired, it was comfortable and clean. The lady at reception was really helpful and friendly and gave us lots of great tips for our journey to Queenstown. We had a room upstairs with a view of the mountains.

Staff were very welcoming, friendly and most accommodating. We had a standard room which was very comfortable. Lovely outlook. We ate at the in-house restaurant - had the buffet meal which was very good. Wine was also excellent. Highly recommended to travellers seeking a comfortable night's rest.

Room was huge but felt old and musty. There were spider webs on the balcony (obviously have been there for some time). Reception was friendly. Adequate for a one night stay but room needs a deep, deep clean. Choose a room on the second floor, facing the garden (away from the car park). Breakfast was ok.

Clean with large rooms and very pretty views. No air-conditioning and a very basic fan heater, rather dated bathroom. Lots of coach parties and breakfast was a very basic buffet style affair. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was at the front of the hotel and there was quite a lot of noise from coaches and cars coming...

Hotel was still under renovations when we visited. The room was well below the standards we experienced on our tour in comparison. However, as a single night stopover it was adequate. Room had TV, comfy beds and tea making facilities. Meals were very good and service excellent. Main issue was that rooms did not have wifi, and the only available...
