I stayed overnight on 30/4/12 with my parents. Our flight from Australia landed in Christchurch at 3pm, and at about two and half hours drive from Christchurch, the Aorangi Motel at Fairlie was the perfect overnight stay on our way to the Mt Cook area. We arrived late but nothing was a problem for the owner who was very friendly which made us feel welcome on our first night in Un Zud. We stayed in a two bedroom unit which had everything you would need, more than enough room, and was very warm, clean and homely. After the flight and drive, the motel room was just so cosy and inviting to arrive to. The toasty warm heated floors were also lovely to wake up to. A very well presented motel and a good choice!!
