“Lovely owners, great accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We have stopped here for one night and had two separate units. One was a two bedroom unit and the other one bedroom one. The unit was well equipped with everything we needed, free tea/coffee/Milo/milk. Wifi was good and we were given unlimited free vouchers which always lasted for 2 hours. The owners were very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay in this little town.

Very clean and comfortable. Underfloor heating was much nicer than the usual style of heating often encountered in motels. Having a unit away from the road meant we were not disturbed by traffic. Wifi available. If one thing could be improved it would be the bed mattresses. They are rather soft. Overall, Good value for the money spent.

We were traveling from christchurch to queenstown. Called and booked during the day as we're not going to be there until early hours of the morning after leaving late.
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 whole place was crisp and clean and homely. Perfect for a stop over or a base if around Fairlie

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.
