I stayed here with a group of about 20. Megan was incredibly accommodating and helped immensely with getting rooms/beds sorted for everyone. The BBQ area has been redone and the pool and trampoline are a great addition to the motel. The location is fantastic, only a short walk into wanaka. Will stay again for sure.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Location is excellent - just a short, short walk to town. Too cold to swim at the moment but the pool and BBQ area was very inviting. We had a 2 Bdrm motel unit and it was nicely decorated, very clean but the fixtures were a bit dated. Cosy beds, warm units. We were in...

First time here, and we were very impressed with our room. Clean, tidy and had everything we needed to make our stay great. Local to the shops and where we needed to be. I would love to revisit in Winter and stay again, on the agenda :-)

Very friendly and helpful in reception an easy check in and a great place to stay. The room was spacious enough for 4 people staying one night and had all you needed to make your stay comfortable. There is a swimming pool on site and a laundry room if you should need it, I would stay here again.

Affordable and close to the township yet the rooms were dated. Rooms are worth the rate you pay but they are not amazing. Nice little pool and BBQ area within the motel. I was concerned however by the owner or manager who told us if we didn't clean our dishes we would be charged a fee. In saying this we...

This place is good value for money - very clean and tidy - very comfortable bed with super soft linen, nice balcony overlooking the park and trees - we had the king suite with spa bath and very nice - little bit far to walk but the taxi service was great

The motel was dated, but it was really good value. All the kitchen faciliites you'd need, with the luxury if closed no the door and not listening to the fridge all night. Had a really comforatble nights sleep.

Spent a couple of nights at the Fairway Motel while hiking the surrounding area. My ground floor room was generously sized, with a small kitchen area with a sink, hot plate, basic utensils, microwave and fridge. The bathroom looked newly renovated and was sparkling clean - kudo's for that. Otherwise the room and decor seemed tired and spartan and was...

We stayed here two nights. It's about a 15 minute walk into town, right to the lakeshore. The room was comfortable enough. Kitchenette small, but well equipped. We heard the owners are working on renovating the rooms. There's a pool, but it is not heated. Nice deck area around the pool. There is a BBQ area, a pay for use...

Myself, my husband, our 2 young children and my parents recently stayed for 2 nights in a spacious 2 bed apartment. The apartment was very clean and well equipped with 2 bathrooms and a laundry. The kids loved the trampoline and the pool and it's a nice easy walk to the main centre (about 1km). The hosts were very friendly...
