Spacious room, large bathroom, well equipped kitchen. The free Wifi was much appreciated too. Extremely comfortable bed, and lounge chairs. Spent 2 nights here for work. The management were very friendly and added that "little bit extra" for a very comfortable stay. I will definitely stay here again.

Room tip: Very close to some excellent Restaurants and the Town Centre. The Golf Course just over the road, and the Lake just a couple of kms away.

We had the “executive” apartment at a hefty NZ300 per night. The only “executive” element was that the open plan sitting-dining-kitchen area was larger than in the average motel. The room looked a bit tired and the bathroom only had a liquid soap dispenser, as obviously “executives” don’t want toiletries. No tissues in the apartment - “executives” presumably bring their own. Also offensive was a threatening sign in the kitchen area that before the 10 am checkout all dishes had to washed, dried and “returned to where they came from” or else there would be “a charge to your credit card” - although I doubt if it is legal to charge someone for not drying and putting away a dish! We washed kitchen equipment before use as it seemed that some previous visitors had only honoured the “returned to where they came from” part of the threat.
We had wanted a bit of luxury which is why we chose the “executive” apartment: bad mistake. This room should better be advertised as “expensive no frills apartment.”
Unlike others, we found the female receptionist friendly but the grumpy male manager does not seem to enjoy his job

One of the cheaper options in Twizel, this motel is very well maintained. The room and the bathroom (with spa) were impeccable. There is a small kitchenette with good basic kitchen equipment. The owners are friendly and professional, and made contact before we stayed there to confirm our booking. There aren't many accommodation choices in Twizel but this is a very decent one with good wifi.

For a reasonably standard motel, it is well maintained and impeccably clean. Surprisingly quiet even though we were in the rooms closest to the road. Added advantage of the food trucks across the road, especially the dhal and flatbreads from the Indian one. We were staying at the start of the A2O cycle ride so had 2 nights, the staff were accommodating of our bikes and gear and very helpful and friendly.

Having stayed at various establishments in Twizel over the years, we were very pleasantly surprised by everything we found in The Lakes Motel. It was spotlessly clean and the beds were comfortable, with plenty of room for the two of us. We were given a warm welcome by the hosts and were given all the help we needed. The only negative was the price, but other establishments in the area were at a similar level, so not surprising.

Room tip: South side rooms were probably marginally quieter, but everywhere would be quite acceptable.
