We chose to stay here after reading Trip Advisor reviews and being unable to book accommodation in Lake Tekapo. It was a good choice. We had a warm welcome from our hostess and an apology for the room being near the road. The motel room was spotlessly clean and tidy and well equipped with every thing needed. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when visiting the area. Lake Tekapo is an easy 25 min drive away and Fairlie is a better place to stay in my opinion, especially when combined with a meal at the Red Stag Restaurant near the Pinewood.
