The MacKenzie Country Hotel is set in the heart of the Aoraki Mount Cook Mackenzie region. Reflecting the surrounding mountain scenery in its architecture, this beautifully presented hotel offers guests full facilities in each of its 108 comfortable furnished rooms. Each room features its own private balcony opening out to the expansive hotel property and the mountain views beyond. Gaze at the panorama of mountain views from the comfort of the hotel restaurant and for a more relaxed dining experience, lounge around by the large stone fireplace in the cocktail bar - a popular choice among the Twizel locals. Just over an hour’s drive to Mount Cook National Park and even less to Ohau ski field, there are plenty of exciting outdoor activities to occupy your time in this outstanding region.
The Deluxe Rooms feature modern décor and superior amenities, including mountain views, a private balcony/patio, wireless internet, a mini fridge, electric blankets, a flat screen TV, iron & board, a hairdryer, tea & coffee making facilities and a telephone.
Featuring a log fire and plenty of seating, the onsite restaurant is warm and inviting. The surrounding windows let in sunlight and provide views of the expansive lawns. On a clear day you can even see Mount Cook in the distance. Come in and enjoy local cuisine prepared by the hotel’s talented chefs. With a roaring log fire and secluded booths the bar is warm and cozy. Savor a meal from one of the varied menus and enjoy a cocktail, beer, local wine or coffee from the bar. Piano, board games, and big screen projector are some of the leisure activities available.
Explore the countryside and follow the turquoise colored Hydro canals from the freedom of two wheels on a bicycle built for you - available for hire from reception. Couldn’t squeeze your clubs in your hand luggage? Golf clubs are available for rental so you can stroll across the road from the hotel to the Ben Ohau Golf Course to enjoy a round on a quiet and magically scenic course, or swing away at the driving range to improve your stroke or just for a bit of tee tapping fun.
