I used to doubt if Twizel is a nice place for overnight stay and it turned out to be the best choice over Mt Cook area. Heartland lodge is definitely the best of best in this peaceful small town. Driving through the woody road at the edge of Twizel, you won't miss a beautiful gate inside of which there is a large front yard full of flowers- that is heartland. Jim and Mary is the loveliest couple we met in New Zealand, making us feeling at home at the first moment of arrival. We were so warmly treated with the welcome notes for our honeymoon and fresh roses in room. All three rooms are gorgeous and super clean. Jim and Mary were so nice upgrading our stay to Aoraki room as a special offer which is so much appreciated by my husband and myself. The room is very large, comfortable and the decorations were stylish with good sense of art. We had a wonderful night in heartland, enjoying the best dinner in town according to Jim’s recommendation, talking with Jim and Mary and the only pity was the cloudy day without a chance to see the milky way. Jim helped us checking the weather of Mt Cook area and encouraged us to go hiking even if time is very limited for Lake Tekapo. We followed his suggestion and found that day so much worthwhile staying at Mt Cook and Lake Pukaki instead of heading directly to Tekapo. Thank you, Jim and Mary. And special thanks for the tasty homemade cookie. – Sicheng & Jane
