Stayed 2 nights early April 2019. Easy check in. Accommodation was spacious, clean and well maintained. Bed was comfortable. Easy walk to all places of interest in Twizel. Used as a base to visit Mt Cook and surrounds.
We stayed here for I night, as we couldn’t find anything in Mt Cook village. Actually I’m rather glad , as staying in Twizel was very convenient. Clean, spacious and well equipped. Parked right outside our room. Great restaurants, shops and a good supermarket made Twizel a great place to be based. It took about 50 minutes to drive to Mt Cook village ( although took longer as we had to stop several times for photos!!! ) Recommended .
A great place to stay. Craig was extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful in so many ways. The rooms were spacious, well appointed and scrupulously clean. We spent two nights there and thoroughly enjoyed our time and the facilities that were provided. Centrally located, The Lakes Motel is well within walking distance to all facilities. I would certainly stay again next time we are back in the area. Highly recommended.
We stayed at The Lakes for three nights and were very impressed. We have travelled New Zealand before and would rate this motel as one of the best. Very comfortable bed, arm chairs, great dining area and well equipped kitchenette - the spa bath after the Lake Hooker trek at Mount Cook was a real bonus! The shelving that accommodates 2-3 suitcases is a stroke of genius and the laundry room offers airers as an alternative to tumble dryers which was brilliant. I think the people who have rated this motel negatively have done so without good reason - please ignore their comments.
After a long driving trip from Christchurch to Twizel, it nice to see a nice and comfortable place to stay. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable and the heater is strong enough to keep us warm. The view outside the motel is beautiful.
