I love this place, I've stayed there previously and will stay again. The hosts are excellent, both friendly and helpful. The cottage is a great place to base from, is quiet, yet not too far from town if you need anything.

Quail Rest, hotel in Twizel

Quail Rest is located on Totara Peak Station which is a working High Country Station located on the shores of Lake Benmore 22kms from Twizel township. Free WiFi and private parking is included.

Everything, though about 10 minutes off the beaten path it didn’t matter once you got there. On the front porch you looked right at Mount Cook. The house itself was immaculate and the appointments were top notch. If you are staying for a few days do not miss this one.

    Twizel is a great base for all the wonderful activities the region has to offer--dark skies, Alps to Ocean, Āoraki, incredible lakes, hot springs, hiking. A lot of very good restaurants with something for all tastes. Two or more grocery stores, with great wine selections and customer service. Great outfitters for biking.

    We have been here a few times now and love it.

    We have been here a few times now and love it. It is the gateway to Mt Cook - we have done a heli hike, some wonderful walks and tramps, taken in the rivers and lakes, soaked in the hot tubs, eaten at local restaurants, shopped in the local stores, star gazed .... the list goes on. The locals are super friendly - Twizel is just down the road from Tekapo but is nowhere near as busy or commercial. Accessible from Christchurch or Queenstown - you can fly into one, rent a car and fly out from the other, or just do a round trip. We will be back !!

    Restaurants and cafes very busy and some were closed.

    Restaurants and cafes very busy and some were closed. Since it was Easter Sunday and the finish of Warbirds Airshow, we had difficulty finding somewhere to have dinner and certainly no place for breakfast.

    Twizel is a small town but growing, with new housing areas on the edge of town and spreading out from there. It is mainly a holiday town but has a core of permanent residents. It has a nice wee shopping area, good restaurants and is handy to the other lakes in the area and to a ski field in winter. It also gives easy access to Aoraki Mt Cook and the Waitaki Valley.

    Cute town.

    Cute town. It has what one needs to enjoy the getaway—groceries, pharmacy, gas, some clothing stores. And, most importantly, nice people who—in spite of the numbers of tourists who are in and out of town—are kind and helpful. Thank you, Twizel!

    Nice little place with easy access by car to several lakes and the Hooker Valley walk. Nice river walk with views to Mt Cook. Twizel has few tourists that we saw and has a very different feel to it than Tekapo, which we didn’t like at all. We didn’t eat out in Twizel, but we did see a few restaurants, we cooked at the house as had great facilities there. Good supermarkets.

    We stayed in the studio motel room 102. It was large, clean and well appointed. Giant king size bed and a single, suited our family of three very well. Well equipped kitchenette with toaster and kettle. 5 minute drive to Twizel and a short walk to lake ruataniwha. Playground is old and dangerous to my eyes but my 7yo loved it!

    Thank you so much Jordan and Twizel Getaways for the marvelous, awesome and unique stay you offered us during our time in the surroundings of Aoraki/Mt. Cook. Everything was perfect! Pity we booked The Cabin Omahau Downs for such a short time. Next time in South NZ it will definitely be longer :-)
