Colonial Motel Twizel
Ranked #6 of 6 Twizel B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 March 2010

Paid cash upfront for 2 nights but when plans changed the following morning we called front desk by 9:15 AM to inform in time to release room for new bookings. This was at a time and location when area rooms were booked out and within hours the motel showed no vacancy sign indicating they had indeed rented out the room. But we were accused of being "dodgy" and were reimbursed only $50 of the $140 booking. What was galling though was having us derided by the owners and yelled at in a manner unbecoming any hotelier. Shame on you folks, you give a good area(Twizel) a bad reputation. Besides your beds were the only dodgy thing about our stay.

We stayed one night her on the way to Mount Cook. We got the last room which was a family unit so we had plenty of room. The unit was very well equipped, clean, quiet, warm and comfortable. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
