We love how friendly the hosts, Margaret and Peter are! It was our best stay among all of our accommodations in New Zealand. We used the BBQ equipment provided - no issue at all! The cottage is cozy, spacious, well-equipped, absolutely nothing we can fault! Would love to stay here again in the future : )

What an absolute gem of a place. Easy to get to off the highway. Beautiful location. Peter and Margaret made us feel so welcome. Loved our 2 night stay here and hoping to go back in the future. For me it was the best place we stayed in New Zealand. Really made our honeymoon.

We enjoyed one quiet and content night at Gladstone Cottage. This simple but peaceful cottage was the perfect place to stay in Twizel and make some dinner, sit on the patio and then watch the stars. Nice running trail out back and owners were there to greet us and show us the workings of the place. Nice hiking information book...

What an amazing place. So quiet and comfortable. Fabulous for families. Easy to find off the highway. Nice cozy fireplace already set to light by our hosts Peter and Margaret. Washing machine an extra bonus with either outdoor line or indoor dry rack. Peter went out of his way to help us when he pooped over after our arrival. But...

Arriving hungry and tired with a sore tail bone after cycling the Alps to Ocean trail in hot, blustery winds, Margaret kindly provided a plate of brie and crackers - no charge. Peter then gave us a lift to Shawty's and the next day, my tail bone not recovered, Peter offered to take me and my bike to my next...

We recently stayed here as a part of our honeymoon, and we can honestly say we are glad that we did. We were met on arrival by Peter and Margaret who warmly welcomed us into their cottage, and throughout our stay did everything possible to ensure we enjoyed ourselves and saw as much of the area as we could. They...

After seeing the reviews, I booked this cottage for 3 nights during the Maadi Cup rowing. Owners insisted on a 50% non-refundable deposit, since they had been let down by "rowing families" previously. I agreed. Two weeks before the booking, my son was withdrawn from his rowing team for medical reasons. I contacted owner and asked if they were prepared...

A guest in our B&B accommodation by chance advised us of this wonderful cottage in NZ, so we decided to give it a try. It was everything it was cracked up to be! The welcome was wonderful and the hospitality outstanding. Margaret and Peter clearly take pride in what they do and ensuring guest comfort. The cottage was beautifully presented,...

We very much enjoyed our two nights stay at Gladstone Cottage this December. The owners are super friendly and welcoming. The cottage is comfortable, clean, and very well equipped (oven, dishwasher, washing machine). Twizel is a good base to explore the Mount Cook valley, Lake Tekapo or the region around Omarama. We felt very comfortable at this place.
