Kind and friendly staff. Clean. Better than some 4 star hotels. It is close to supermarkets and restaurants. I liked the electric blankets. I’d advise all customers to read the information hung on the wall.

If you are in Twizel this is the place for you. We chose a bigger room because we had been travelling 8 days and needed a bit of space to unwind but that is an understatement. The room is huge and like home but nicer. We spread out, had a cooked meal, and relaxed. I prayed for snow to keep us there one more day. 3 minute walk to shop. Perfect. We left very refreshed.
