The apartment was fantastic. We had room to spread out and the kitchen facilities were perfect for cooking. We appreciated the laundry facilities too! The owner was very helpful and we enjoyed being able to walk into town. We only spent one night but could easily have stayed a week.

Clean and tidy room with good facilities. We were on the upper level, so had a nice view. There is plenty of parking and a bar-b-que facility. The service was good even though the owner was away and had left his dad looking after the place.

Very nice and clean family-run motel. We had a 2-bedroom suite that appeared to have been recently renovated. The kitchen was great with a full-size refrigerator. Very spacious for the three of us (enough beds to sleep at least 6).

Very nice and clean motel in Wanaka. 5 mins walk from the lake and a short drive to the puzzling world. Has laundry facilities and a clothes line which was very convenient. The kitchen is ok and there is a small pool and play area for kids. A swing and garden keeps the little ones occupied. Rob was very helpful... More

Lovely motel only a five minute walk from nice restaurants and shops of wanaka. Lovely showers and warm comfortable bed. Great set up for our family of four with queen bed and two single beds with half petition in between. Lovely friendly welcome and reliable wifi. All up, would highly recommend.

Had an upstairs room, and did get help with cases, which was much appreciated. Good sized room, nice spacious, clean shower room. Small kitchenette, but adequate. Some fittings were loose, but this was dealt with after reporting it. There were what appeared to be dog or cat hairs on the sofa, which was a bit disconcerting, as the room seemed... More

Hi Guys Thank you for taking the time to give us a review, glad to hear you enjoyed your time in Wanaka. I was obviously concerned about the comment in regard to pet hair and investigated that. One of the cushions had been split at the back and the white nylon fibre was coming out, I agree that it did... More

Our fourth Night in South Island was at Fairway Motel Wanaka. Now this motel is in Wanaka, right at the entrance if the town. The motel doesn’t have any lake view. It is a 5 min drive from here to the lake. All the amenities, shops, restaurants are all 5-10 min drive. The hosts were very chatty and helpful. I... More

Very nice clean units on the edge of the town. Plenty of parking space, large and comfortable room, good and well-equipped kitchen. Cheap laundry on site; we stayed two nights and dried the washing on the generous line by the barbecue. It's a long walk to the shops in the town (and even further back with shopping!)

This motel was very clean, comfortable and a very big studio unit with good kitchen. Was very well equipped, with spa bath as well!! The reception was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and he even helped us upstairs with the luggage, a first for me!! we would definitely go back there.

A thoroughly excellent experience. We used booking.com to make our reservation and mistakenly booked the wrong date. Even though the reservation was for a special deal and non-refundable, the hosts were excellent and more than happy to change the date for us. We really appreciated that. The apartment was fantastic - easily the best accommodation of our trip. The quality... More
