Second time staying here in a week which says enough that we would come back. Despite us ringing to say we would be late arriving, they not only accomodated that, they put the heaters on for our arrival which was definitely appreciated.

Great spot for Twizel, brilliant base to explore McKenzie Country. Great spacious room with dark curtains for sleep. Room was cold but heaters didnt take long to heat it up. Shower was a bit disappointing
