After booking here for a stopover on our way to Queenstown, I read a few reviews (did things the wrong way round!!) and got a little nervous. But then we thought its only 1 night, and its only cheap. The day we were due to arrive in Twizel, our trepidation grew, particularly after we had spent a night at an amazing BandB the night before. We arrived at around 5.30 in the evening, its very easy to find, cant really miss it coming in off the highway. The gentleman in reception was very friendly, and our room, a studio, was very clean and warm (it was a cold night and the heat pump had been put on for us) The bathroom was recently updated I would guess as it was modern, where as the rest of the furniture was a little older in style, but all in good condition, and a teeny little kitchenette. The bed wasn't bad (I've slept on a lot worse in a lot more expensive places!!) and there were electric blankets and free wifi.
Its not the Ritz, but the things that are the most important to us, no1 clean, no2 a decent bed that's not rock hard and no3 bathroom that's clean and modern all ticked off.
PS im sure the Simpsons couch is in their barbeque area LOL (or is it just me??)
