Located in Twizel in the Canterbury region, 34 Mackenzie Apartments has accommodations with free WiFi. Beautiful, clean, comfortable apartment. Location was perfect for exploring Mt Cook, Lake Pukaki, Lake Tekapo. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the property is. This was our first time renting an apartment abroad.
Featuring free WiFi and a spa pool, The Barn at Killin B&B is located in Lake Ohau in the Mackenzie country of the North Otago region, 19 mi from Twizel. Although a little of the beaten track, the house rooms had a wonderful view in a quiet location. More than that Huw as host was excellent (we asked for and really enjoyed a superb evening meal) helpful, thoughtful and very good company. If only all accommodation was that good!
Gladstone Cottage is located in Twizel. This property has free WiFi. The hosts (the cottage is on their property), Peter and Margaret, were mot friendly and helpful, The location was very pleasant, away from the hustle and bustle of town. The cottage is quite roomy, with a comfortable living area and TV. The kitchen was well equipped and even had a dishwasher and decent-sized freezer in the refrigerator, The washing machine was very handy, although it would had been nice to have a dryer so that clothes didn't need to be hung outside or on a drying rack (although the drying rack worked OK for the few items we washed). It is very easy to unload luggage from the immediately adjacent parking area.

Twizel is a wonderful town to stay while visiting Mt Cook, Lake Pukaki, Lake Tepako, Ohau. Very easy to navigate. Walking distance to the supermarket, etc. Great for day trips up to the mountain, beautiful scenery and wonderful photos.
Twizel has several nice moderately priced restaurants. We ate at Poppies which was great. It was a good place to stop en route to Midtown. Cook, Lake Pukaki or just cross island. We enjoyed strolling along Lake Ruataniwha, turquoise blue, stunning.
Twizel is an affordable place to stay and a good choice when visiting Mt. Cook. It is a 45 min. drive from the Mt. Cook area. Poppies is a great place to eat in town. Don't miss it! Getting around Twizel is easy, but there isn't much to do in town. It's an excellent place to use as a base camp for visiting Mt. Cook.
A small little town with not too many places to eat out for dinner. We drove up to Lake Tecapu the one full day we were in Twizel and had a beautiful day there. Beautiful scenery, a historic church, nice shopping and a wonderful ice cream stand! We did find the salmon fishery outside Twizel which was fun to see.
Take aways from Razzas was yummy and the staff were friendly. Enjoyed looking around the updated town centre. The birds are fantastic. We didn’t have time to check out the playground, next time. We enjoyed trying to catch a fish in the canals (and watching the locals actually catch them!).
Nice base for exploring Mount Coock if one does not find accommodation in the Mount Cook village which is 45 min drive away. Close to lake and salmon farm that serves fish specialities on location. Good grocery stores and a couple of good restaurants. Has lots of green space for kids.

The location, although people have to realise that the barn is 30 km from Twizel. But who cares. The host is a very lovely person and very good cook. So book a meal at his place. Take your time staying here. At least 2 nights. There is a hot tob and you can travel from here to mount Cook. Great breakfast . 2 bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom. The other two share a bathroom, but they have a balcony. We loved everything

Most comfortable, warm, excellent, well organised things what we need during our stay even biggest bonus is washer machine to wash our clothes in same place where we stay in. Not like other motels or cabins that most don t have washing machines in same place. Well done to the owners who set up in big excellent organisation for our stay. Love to come back to this place again one day.

Worked better than our expectation. We initially wanted to stay in lake tekapo. Since lake tekapo was fully, we had to book to stay in Twizel. In the end, it didn't make trouble at all and I found this house very lovely. The owner of the house has helped to answer all questions in advance. Thank you.

Staying in Highlands Farm Stay will give an unique experience with all sort of farm animals for people who live in cities. Appliances in kitchen/living room are from top/well known brands which usually not used in hotel/motel. Unbelievable!

Located just minutes out of Twizel. The house provided the country home atmosphere with nicely decorated room. All the rooms has each own bathroom and 4 rooms shared one kitchen. The place is clean and convenient and the view at the patio is amazing.

Beautifully decorated purpose built property with everything you might need in hand. Our hosts Debbie and Dave were warm and welcoming and we shared a few hours chat over wine and cheese where they told us everything about the area. Would definitely recommend.
