Owner was a pleasure to deal with. She put the heater on, the under floor heating on and the bed electric blanket on low. Was comfortable bed, crisp clean sheets, the... More

Motel is in a quiet position in the small town of Fairlie. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Gave advice on local places to see and places to eat. Room clean and good value for money. Highly Recommended.

We stayed here for 1 night after we couldn't find any accommodation in lake tekapo. Only half an hours drive, in a lovely town. The staff are lovely and really helpful, the room was lovely and lots of parking in front of the rooms which was handy.

Hello, we are a family of 5 and arrived very late on New Year's eve and a bit late checking out in the morning. Host was very accommodating and friendly. The unit was clean, tidy, and reasonably spacious. Sleep quality was great because the motel is away from the main room. A tip for arrival late at night is to... More

Kathy was so welcoming of our extremely tired family who just wanted to go to bed. It was only 10am & the room was made ready for our early arrival which was a godsend. The apartments are lovely, very spacious and clean and have that home away from home feel in a nice quiet area.  Close to everything this is... More

When my wife and I explained that we were spending the night in Fairlie during our tour of the South Island, the reaction was always the same: "Why? Why ever would you want to go to Fairlie?" Poor Fairlie. I confess we didn't see much in Fairlie that would bring us back, though we've seen many less desirable spots. We... More

Rooms have comfortable beds, adequate self-catering facilities, heated floors, 32" LCD flat screen TV's with Freeview but only limited Sky and Free Wireless. However, the rooms are very old-fashioned... More

It was a rainy day and they provided wifi, a DVD player and dvd selection free of charge. Great service, a large lounge room, with comfy couches and a good tv. Fantastic. Great advice too, recommended a great steak place close by
