Found this place here on trip advisor a week before I traveled to Wanaka, and it sounded like a good place. Booked online and got there a week later. Since I got there things were just great. Good location, close to everything and very pretty part of the world. The unit was very clean, very convenient, it has all the... More

I recently stayed at the Fairway for three weeks whilst visiting family in Wanaka and it was a great base to have. My room was incredibly clean and even though I was there at the coldest time of the year there was good heating, an electric blanket and a spare fan heater just in case. Very comfy bed - and... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights, found it clean, friendly and economical. Room size was generous, and was great having a kitchen to keep the cost of eating brekkie etc down. Plenty of off street parking, and close to town etc. Would stay again.

I really enjoyed our stay here during the end of the first week of July in 2014. It has everything you need and the guys you manage the place are very friendly. Wifi is fast and hot water is hot! The place has a drying room, pool, swing for the kids, and plenty of parking.

As per previous reviewer… The Fairway Motel was very clean, quiet, comfortable, modern, well appointed (lots of little extras - plenty of linen, crockery, soaps, etc), friendly young couple owners who went out of their way to accommodate my three teenage boys and myself at the last minute during the busy school winter ski holidays! We stayed three nights unexpectedly,... More

Slightly out of the centre of Wanaka, Fairway Motel offers quiet, reasonably priced suites which are excellent: clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped, as well as offering a swimming pool, laundry facilities (along with an open drying area, if preferred) and an open picnic area. The staff is friendly and helpful.

I was most impressed with the friendly young couple running the place, its always nice to feel welcome. Its definately not the hilton, but its clean and tidy and had all the amenities we required. Though we would have liked a recycle bin, rather then leaving recycling on the kitchen floor. Pool was a bit cold, but I guess the... More
