Hi guys, glad you had a great time here in Wanaka! Keep enjoying New Zealand and have a safe trip home too :-)
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review!
We had originally planned to only stay here for 2 nights but we liked Wanaka so much we ended up staying for four nights! The rooms are relatively basic, our kitchen in particular was very small, but they were clean and the bed comfortable so we didn't mind. The hosts were very helpful and flexible in allowing us to stay longer and the motel is within easy walking distance of the town centre. Having looked at other options in Wanaka, I think this motel offers good value for money.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review :-) On behalf of the team here at Fairway we are glad that you enjoyed your time here in Wanaka and that you feel you got great value as Fairway guests. Enjoy New Zealand! Kind Regards, Rob
On our drive through form Greymouth to QTown, we stopped on a whim and took a room there and paid up 120 for one night, we probably got taken as a walk in. The room was under a staircase, the kitchen small and strangely spread on both sides, the room small compared to 6-7 other motels we stayed in NZ. The partitions were wood, if you knock you can feel the sound going through to the other side, we did not have any neighbor, did not hear any sound coming through. There's facility to wash your car near the pool with a faucet and rags to wash, we had a dirty car running 1500 kms though rain and dirt. Though the lady at the reception was helpful with information, we fell we could have got better bang for the buck. Location was good, the lake a walk down the road. Since it was for just one night we did not complain and pushed on.
Thank you for your feedback. I find this an interesting review as being the shoulder season and having looked through our November records there have been no charges for $120 for one night stays. I guess it is difficult to really provide an adequate response as generally if people are not 100% happy with any aspect of their room they will let us know at the time and we will do our very best to assist. I am glad the location was good and I can assure you that all of our studio units have thick concrete walls. Apologies if you feel we have let you down in some way. Regards, Rob
Great stay with a baby and toddler huge rooms and plenty of space for 4 adults and two kids.
Only complaint was that the people who stayed above us were early risers and you could hear every thing including their jug boiling.
Needs a bit of soundproofing. But might pay to get an upstairs room too.
Bar that friendly hosts, Separate laundry available. Free BBQ and BBQ tools provided.
Would definitely stay again !
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are glad you had a good time here in Wanaka. In regard to soundproofing, thank you for the information, it is something we will look at for sure. Those two rooms are more recent 'add ons', the main block of studios and the apartments are all soundproofed but it is great to get feedback as we are always looking at continuous improvement :-)
Take care, again we are rapt you enjoyed your stay and on behalf of Eve and myself we hope to see you again. Pool is open from 1st Dec - 31 March perfect for the kids!
Easy to find on the main road into Wanaka. Warm well equipped units and a friendly welcome make this a great place to stay. The unit we enjoyed on the 1st floor had a good view and was well fitted out.and roomy.
This would be an ideal motel if you were a golf fan but even if not would be an ideal family holiday spot or a business stay, Close drive to town with all the restaurants and bars that Wanaka has to offer.
Thank you for the great comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Wanaka and that you found the room comfortable. We really enjoy hosting people in this beautiful town!
My girlfriend and I called in to the Fairway Motel for 1 night on our way through Wanaka, and it was so good that we had to stay another night! Couldn't have been happier with our room and the service and hospitality that Eve and Rob provided. On more than one occasion Ruth (Girlfriend) thought I'd got lost on my way back from reception because I had been stood talking to the guys like I'd known them all of my life. Our room was spacious and airy, the shower was excellent (it put ours at home to shame!). The cooking facilities were very good, with plenty of utensils, plates, glasses etc. so you can definitely be self sufficient if you are on a budget or don't fancy eating out one day. Eve and Rob were very attentive, making sure we always had clean towels, milk, tea bags etc. they even contacted me to say that I had left an SD card in the room and posted it back to me. Highly recommend........ 5 star.
Thanks for your positive feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and loved Wanaka so much you stayed another night! It is awesome to be able to share this beautiful place with travelers and share in their experiences.
Hope the rest of your travels around the country were just as enjoyable!
Eve and Rob
