We had booked this hotel as a stopover on our long drive from Mt Cook to Christchurch. Suffice to say, it just serves its purpose as a motor-hotel of sorts. The suite is spacious, furniture was slightly old, the kitchen is well-equipped, but for the bathroom, because of the proximity of the suites to Mother Nature, we would once in...

We had a very comfortable night here at the Aorangi motel. The room was clean, warm and well appointed. We had a bit of trouble with the toaster not working in the morning, but otherwise all was very good. I would highly recommend it.

First overnight stay in Fairlie and what a fantastic friendly warm reception. Room a bit dated but for a small town like Fairlie it's exceptionally good. Well kept neat place, heating was on in room which made it nice and cosy on a cold winter day. Well organised at office when we booked in, the free wifi code was ready...

The rooms are clean and tidy and there is good parking. The lady that checked us in was very pleasant and the wireless internet was free and worked good. If there is any negative, the rooms were cold and only had little heaters. We left them on which helped, but it was mid winter. The rooms were quite expensive, but...

Usually we stay in Lake Tekapo but couldn't this time. We decided to try Fairlie and travel to the Hot Pools. We won't stay in Lake Takapo again after staying here. Only half an hour drive and so very convenient and less expensive. We had a studio room and it was clean, very warm and everyything that we needed was...

If you are near Fairlie and need a place to lay your head, you should stay here. Kitchenettes in each room so you can cook your own meals which saves money. Comfortable beds. Clean rooms with big tv. Delightful family running the hotel. This place is top notch!

Arrived en masse with a family emergency and rocked on up to the door with no prior booking. Erin jumped into action and not only made sure we were comfortable but took calls, brought food and generally looked after us. When she had a full house on our last night's stay she arranged for a room at another motel so...

Was trying to find 2 nights accommodation around Mount Cook / Lake Tekapo. Either booked out or ridiculously priced. Reluctantly opted for Fairlie and was pleasantly surprised. A bit of a distance from the mountains and lakes but still drivable. Very comfortable self-contained units with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and spacious lounge. Friendly helpful staff. Reasonable prices. Free unlimited wifi.
