Korey and Anita run a spectacular B & B. The room and furnishings were impeccable - and the company was enjoyable. We really enjoyed meeting the hosts and the other guests for a drink before dinner - and we loved the great referrals, information, and tips on where to go. The breakfast was "yummy and well-made" - those are my...

We stayed one night here on our way from Christchurch to Queenstown. Perfect spot on the way and an easy 45 minute drive to Mt Cook. Room was clean and spacious. Not fancy but fine. Korey and Anita are lovely welcoming hosts. They offered a free drink around 6:15pm and a very good hot breakfast in the morning. Just around...

Very friendly host, and a good B&B. Room was spacious, bathroom was huge, and our hosts were very informative about where we could go for dinner in town. Twizel is a small town, so the options were limited, but our hosts gave us a thorough run through of all the available options. The big plus for us though was Tuffy,...

Yes, the cat is not allowed in the rooms! We are very careful to ensure that he does not go into the guest rooms, as we like to make sure that people with a cat allergy are comfortable here. As much as Taffy loves the guests, we are never offended if asked to keep him outside during drinks. However for...

We stayed here on our second night in New Zealand and was our first night on our Motorcycle tour of New Zealand. We were made to feel so welcome.

Thanks for your review. We love to have guests who are doing motorcycle tours stay with us as it is a great chance for us to invite my Mum and Dad over for evening drinks and for them to share their knowledge about motorcycle touring in the south of New Zealand. Twizel is not just for bicycling!

When looking for a place around Mt. Cook, we happened to luck out and chose the Aoraki Lodge in Twizel. Only minutes away from the park and beautiful riverbed, Aoraki offers you a chance to unwind after leaving hectic Queenstown and is still quite close to Mt. Cook for an amazing Hooker Valley hike. Korey and Anita were quite welcoming,...

From the time you set foot on the front deck you are instantly feel welcome in this lovely home.

We stayed here for 2 days. We were late arriving but were warmly welcomed with a nice glass of wine by Korey & Anita. The ensuite room was very comfortable & the fresh flowers & cookies, a nice touch. Having free unlimited wifi was a bonus.

I can absolutely recommend this beautiful B&B . A friendly, guest oriented young family. The room was very clean and comfortable. A good restaurant and a little supermarket are just around the corner. We also had the chance to visit spectacular boot races.
