                  More about Mackenzie Country Hotel

                  Mackenzie Country Hotel is a comfortable, country-styled hotel built from the natural stone of this unique countryside, combining genuine hospitality and a superb location. Located just off the main road in picturesque Twizel, the Aoraki Mount Cook National Park is right on your doorstep, and many of the 108 rooms offer unbroken views of this stunning mountain range. Aside from the fantastic views and attentive service, the hotel offers tastefully decorated rooms and suites with all the amenities of a modern 3-star hotel. The Aoraki Mount Cook National Park itself is home to New Zealand's highest mountain and encompasses over 70,000 hectares of pristine wilderness, including glaciers, torrential rivers, temperate forest, and numerous snow-capped mountain peaks. It was this area that the great battle scenes of Pelennor Fields in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy were filmed, though the area is infinitely more impressive in real life.

                  Intended to visit Aoraki / MT Cook but no reasonable accomodation was available over there. Stayed here as an alternative option which turned out to be quite good. Like an old hotel, very spacious with two queen beds inside. My room on the ground floor was open to a park which was nice. Tea and coffee were plenty. However the wifi was slow. I have eaten in the in-house restaurant but a good restaurant Poppie was virtually opposite this hotel.

                  Big rooms and comfortable beds”

                  The room is big and the beds are big and comfortable too. The garden view is very nice. There are huge pine cones and trees in the garden. The hotel is quite old. The soundproofing of the walls are not that good. You can hear people talking in the next room and also people walking in the corridor. I used the guest laundry and find that the dryer is good. The dryer is able to make all my clothes totally dry when I took them out of the dryer.

                  My stay was okay. Booking online was a huge challenge. Suggest if you're traveling with small children to call the hotel before agreeing to pay a huge extra price for bringing kids. We saved $200 by calling.

                  location, friendly stuff, value for money

                  We were traveling on a road trip and spent a night here. The room is kind of old and as this is motel you can't expect too much. Wifi not available, which is a pain for us as traveler. Not a luxury hotel but if you are looking for some place which is value for money and just spend a night during your road trip. This was not a bad choice.

                  Has beautiful grass backyard

                  We really enjoyed staying here. Lots of group tourists seem to use this hotel when they travel between Queenstown and Christchurch. Our kids enjoyed playing in backyard of hotel. Also, there is one good restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also, you can walk to the city center given Twizel is really small city. Interior is a bit old but it is OK given most people stay here for only 1 night, I guess. If you travel between QT and CC, this hotel can be a place to stay on the way.

                  Good and clean room

                  We have arrived very late, the hotel restaurant has closed already, and no other restaurant open ouside the hotel, the reception asked their bar to lend bowls to us then we can cooking some instant noodle in our room. The queen bed room was commodiously, clean, good view and quietly. And this Inn located near by Mt. Cook and lake Pukaki, but cheaper than those hotel and hostels up on the moutain valley, I think it is the best balance for both distance and price if you are going to Mt. Cook next morning. There are 2-3 supermakets around the Inn, easy to purchase.

                  Comfortable. Good Location. Good Service

                  McKenzie Country Inn is ideally situated to explore the Mt. Cook region of New Zealand. The Inn is comfortable and clean and we were treated to excellent breakfasts and dinner. The staff were also very helpful in directing us to points of interest in the area. We enjoyed a very pleasant stay. The inn could do with some modernising, but this is only cosmetic.

                  It offers a nice mid-way stopping point from Christchurch on our way down to Queenstown. It is fairly close from Mt. Cook (approx 40min drive). The town centre has good supermarket and bakery. Hotel bistro dining offers good range of food with live piano on Friday night. In room facilities are pretty old with small TV but after all, we wanted a quiet location with clean bed for a quick stop over.

                  Enjoyed the surroundings,room and facilities. However was disappointed with the breakfast presentation. With Cromwell being so close with fresh fruits etc., breakfast provided canned fruit. Hot foods kept under "baye marie" leave a bit to desire so settled elsewhere for breakfast.

                  twizel is a great place to stay, not only to visit mount cook, which is approx 55kms away, but also the town itself is very modern, and has a great atmosphere, seemingly for visitors and locals alike. lovely places to eat, some with live music and entertainment, a number of shops, eateries and community happenings centred around a modern "town square". we enjoyed our stay at the mackenzie country inn, the weather was great, so we could actually see mount cook from our room, which was exciting. we enjoyed a lovely buffet meal at the inn's restaurant (not always buffet apparently), and were very happy with the friendly service and helpful and cheerful receptionist.
