We stayed at Aorangi Motel on the way to Central Otago from Marlborough and were very pleased we did. The motels were the best we stayed at on this break and would thoroughly recommend them.

Accomodation was clean and tidy and didn't present any problems at all. Quite a big unit compared to some similar motels in NZ - this one had a separate double... More

Fairlie is a small town on the last part of the drive to Lake Tekapo from Christchurch via Geraldine. This motel is a great find - ideally situated on a quiet service road adjacent to the main route, and 100 metres from one of the best restaurants, Eat, in that part of New Zealand. Try the breakfasts! There is well-stocked... More
