Clean, spacious room, large bathroom, complete kitchenette, very nice and friendly staff. Great nights stay a scenic drive away from Mt Cook (and much cheaper than Mt Cook village). Close to Twizel town centre with everything you need. Very convenient with food truck area right across the road. Allocated private parking in courtyard right outside the door.
