Omarama, a Mountain Community in the middle of everywhere! Our 14 motel unit complex is situated in the heart of this mountainous region surrounded by a spacious garden like setting. This peaceful and quiet setting has a country atmosphere and stunning views of the mountain ranges, is just a short distance to beautiful lakes for boating or fishing. Tramping, walking or mountain bike tracks are also in our back yard with the Alps to Ocean cycle trail right here! We are a gliding mecca, you will see them soaring the skies, be tempted and take a flight yourself! Our 'dark' night skies are known for pristine starlit viewing, an idyllic way to view them is from a private Hot Tub and overlooking a small lake. Base yourself here in Omarama and be central to Mt Cook, Tekapo, Oamaru, Queenstown and Wanaka. See you soon

We spent 1 night at Ahuriri Motel Omarama in August 2019, the overall Rating for this hotel is Excellent. Great value, free wifi and parking. Rooms are nice, clean and very comfortable. We had the best sleep for the whole week we were on the South Island. Hotel Owner is very friendly and helpful. Very quiet even staying at the front facing the main road. Great views, beautiful surroundings and great for star gazing. I highly recommend this Motel if you are on a road trip, check out the Hot Pools and have a warm dinner at the pub.

We have stayed here twice now and it's definitely the best place in the area. Pricing is very reasonable and the units themselves are exactly what you would want from a small motel in rural New Zealand. Staying in the middle of winter we were a bit concerned but rooms are much warmer than they appear, both the one bedroom units and the studio apartments had no problem staying warm throughout the night. The rooms were neat and tidy and included kitchenette areas for any food needs. There was little to no noise which allowed a very peaceful sleep. Beds and pillows provided were comfortable. Free WiFi was a plus which isn't always expected in an area like this. Service was excellent, one trip letting us check in later than normal due to a hold up, thank you to the staff!

Great motel with outside patios. Very spacious and clean, there was nothing we didn't like about the property. A really tremendous value for the money when you compare it to other properties in the area of Mt. Cook.

Stayed 1 night late March 2019. Clean and comfortable accommodation with an interesting story to its construction. Overall, good sized accommodation with a queen bed in a small bedroom and toilet/handbasin low to the ground. Good wifi. Comfortable bed. Would stay here again.

The main living area was quite large and contained a single bed and couch. The main bedroom had a queen size bed and was probably too big for room so you could barely walk around the edges but we just jumped onto the bed from the doorway and never walked around it! The bathroom was large but just had a curtain around the shower and even though the curtain was pulled around water still washed up around the room so we had to put a mat down on the carpet to dry our feet after leaving the bathroom. Its great the you can park right at your front door too. I would definitely stay here again as it was a great tidy place. Free wifi was also great.
