We stayed one night here before driving on to Christchurch. It was easy to find and check in was friendly and helpful. Because of the sloping roof storage was not as ample as it would seem from the outside but it was fine for a short stay. It was fairly quiet but there was some noise from a large party...

Rooms and furniture a little dated. Bed was ok. Rooms disconnected from lounge area which was a little annoying. Wifi only worked in lounge area. We were in chalet 22, which had very average shower pressure. No bin in kitchen, had to take the bathroom bin. Not a lot of privacy as they are fairly close to each other. Easy...

We actually were going to stay at Mount Cook but it was so expensive we decided to stay in Twizel, which is on the main highway and the drive to the mountain is only 30 minutes away. We went on a helicopter tour, which was just amazing and well worth the money. We also visited the hot tubs at Omarama...

was ok but then the heat pump did not work once the temperature dropped! Comfortable beds and reasonable kitchen with plenty of room for all...two adult boys and parents. The cooker worked but was dated and we found the bathroom freezing! There was no heat source in there.Front row motels have a great view....worth asking for when you book. Go...
