Twizel Central is in the heart of the Twizel township. Just a few minutes stroll to the marketplace - town centre where you can find some outstanding restaurants. Our Lodge is set in a beautiful country style garden and although central, it is quiet and peaceful. Twizel Central, the best place to base yourself to explore the legendary Mackenzie Country. Our Lodge is a little luxury, a little independence and very much central.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked two rooms for four nights for clients who were here to participate in a Landscape Photography Retreat with us based in Twizel, the heart of Mackenzie Basin near Aoraki/Mt Cook.
The location of the accommodation is perfect, just 50 metres from our Photo Base (across the road). Theses apartments have recently been refurbished. Our clients said that the king size beds, air conditioning , quite location, friendly hosts where a great tonic after a long day of photography and learning new skills.
Access to the centre of Twizel for restaurants and good coffee is 5 minutes walk away.

Great location, within easy walking distance to shops and eateries. Nice clean, spacious rooms. But what made this place stand out for us was the care the hosts put into ensuring that our dietary needs were met with our continental breakfast. Really kind and thoughtful people. Thank you again. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation in Twizel.

Very nice location, close to eateries.
Clean and tidy unit.
Unfortunately we received some very bad news regarding a family member and had to cut our stay short.
The young man looking after us was extremely understanding and sympathetic.
I can’t thank him enough for his kindness.
We will definitely be back to continue our fishing expedition and be staying with Twizel Central.
We highly recommend this establishment.
Many thanks.

This basic motel is located in the centre of Twizel a short walk to the restaurants and bars. Listed as a Studio Motel our room did not have any facilities other than a fridge and kettle.
A blocked toilet on our second evening marred our stay. We did not find it acceptable to be unable to flush the toilet after use. We alerted the owner to our concerns but he said it okay for us to leave the toilet in an unsanitary state. He also told us the problem had previously occurred and that it only affected room 2.
Our travel companions were in room 1 which was very small.
Nice quality towels and bedding.

We arrived at Twizel Central, after cycling from Tekapo, on the A2O trail. This Motel is delightful, has so much character as appears to be a wing of the Motelier’s home set in a lovely garden. Although the owners were away, we were given a phone number to ring, to check in and locate our key. Our every need was catered for, in this lovely homely boutique style motel.

My friend and I were very impressed when we booked into this motel. The new owner went out of his way for us as we couldn't go out for a meal. Our room didn't have a kitchen but he provided us with everything we needed to make ourselves dinner. The room is so spacious and spotlessly clean.
He was just delightful. We wish him well as we can see they have made huge changes. Our room was well appointed and the bathroom was great.

Decent place to stay - clean, well maintained property and spacious room, reasonably priced; comfortable and reasonably quiet.
However, it is not extraordinary, and does not meet the expectations raised by promoting it as 'Deluxe King Studio' (there is a fridge, but not even a microwave).
There are 3 parking spots available, plus street parking.

I believe there are new owners here (since September 2020?). It now operates as a motel, rather than a B&B.
Our room and bathroom were extremely spacious and tastefully decorated. Very comfortable bed and a great shower.
There were tea/coffee making facilites and a small fridge only.
Friendly hosts.
Nice big table outside to share with other guests, which we did over a glass of wine!
A hop, skip and a jump from the centre of town.
Would definitely recommend for a short stay or longer if you didn't require cooking facilities.

We stayed here for 1 night. Great king bed really comfy. Loved the garden and the hosts. Great location to Twizel centre too.
Would definitely stay again. When eating out we
really enjoyed Mint Folk and Co, but Poppies is also really good.
