Booked late and got a really nice spurs.. great location on the outskirts of Wanaka.. Rooms where big and comfortable.. ample parking spots. A bit chilly to try the pool but I'm sure its great in summer time. Factilites were good, kitchen had all we needed for our breakfast. beds where comfortable.

I was very impressed with the rooms we had at the Fairway Motel. Very friendly and helpful. Our rooms had two bathrooms, full kitchen and a washing machine and dryer. We stayed for 5 nights. I'd go straight back to this place next time I'm in Wanaka.

We stayed for just one night. We were happy with the size of the room, although didnt make use of the kitchen facilities as we were eating out for meals. We werent too happy with the comfort of the bed or pillows though. But decent price for the location etc.

We were in NZ almost a month and Fairway was in the middle of the pack of the places we stayed. The owners are great; very pleasant and work to make your stay a good experience. The motel has outdoor facilities (BBQ, pool, picnic tables) but the weather was very cool and we were not able to make use of... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 night during our visit to NZ, having experienced over a dozen other establishments. There are a lot of 'units' on site and noise is inevitable, especially as it was the school holidays when we stayed. The kitchenette area is a little cramped, but overall, it is a comfortable motel with a good... More

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).
