Being a family of 5, we struggle to find accommodation that is willing and able to accommodate us in one unit, to find this little gem was fantastic. Great spacious 2 bedroom unit with a queen in one room and two singles PLUS a roller bed in the second room comfortably, electric blankets on all beds. We walked into a... More

Lovely clean room which was nice and warm as the heating had been put on advance of our arrival. Don't let the dated exterior of the units put you off as the inside is comfortable and spaciousness. A real pleasure to stay somewhere where the management care about you enjoying your stay.

Very pleasant and helpful owners. The room was very clean and tidy and met our expectations. Very quiet place to stay and would recommend. Great place to stay if visiting Lake Tekapo. would stay here again if we ever visit this region.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. We found the apartment to be clean and comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen was a little dated, but had everything we needed. We really enjoyed having such spacious accommodation. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for the ease of staying with you. Arrived late at night which wasn't an issue for them. Heaters on, wi-if working and very cosy. Defiantly would recommend. Worth a stay to break up the journey between Christchurch and Queenstown if trying to drive through. Thanks 👏🏼

The motel is very spacious,neat and comfortable. Stayed in Fairlie as Lake Tekapo is expensive and only 20 -25 minutes drive away.We arrived late in the evening and the lady at the reception advised us to visit Lake Tekapo on the same day as weather forecast was rainy for the following day. Luckily we took her advise and visited Tekapo... More

We arrived from Queens Town tired and weary and without accommodation and were so fortunate to find that the Aorangi motel had just had a cancellation. The young lady at reception was so lovely and helpful. Our unit was clean and the facilities great. I was able to catch up with laundry that had been mounting up for a day... More
