Very pleasant and helpful owners. The room was very clean and tidy and met our expectations. Very quiet place to stay and would recommend. Great place to stay if visiting Lake Tekapo. would stay here again if we ever visit this region.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. We found the apartment to be clean and comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen was a little dated, but had everything we needed. We really enjoyed having such spacious accommodation. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for the ease of staying with you. Arrived late at night which wasn't an issue for them. Heaters on, wi-if working and very cosy. Defiantly would recommend. Worth a stay to break up the journey between Christchurch and Queenstown if trying to drive through. Thanks 👏🏼

The motel is very spacious,neat and comfortable. Stayed in Fairlie as Lake Tekapo is expensive and only 20 -25 minutes drive away.We arrived late in the evening and the lady at the reception advised us to visit Lake Tekapo on the same day as weather forecast was rainy for the following day. Luckily we took her advise and visited Tekapo...

We arrived from Queens Town tired and weary and without accommodation and were so fortunate to find that the Aorangi motel had just had a cancellation. The young lady at reception was so lovely and helpful. Our unit was clean and the facilities great. I was able to catch up with laundry that had been mounting up for a day...

Fairlie is a small village and a convenient stop on our way to Queenstown from Christchurch. We had a lovely, clean,comfortable room, with a full kitchen, large comfortable bed, and separate bathroom. The friendly check-in person gave us a great dinner recommendation at the Red Stag (separate review). A great stopover away from all the busloads and crowds around the...

Fairlie may not be the most exciting place on earth - very handy for Mount Cook though and it is lucky that the Aorangi Motel sets a high standard for the town We enjoyed our dated but very spacious two bedroom unit in a pleasant location close to Fairlie's hub.

We agree with the good reviews- very spacious, clean, well-equipped, comfortable . The suite was huge. Beds were good. Kitchen was dated but clean. We did have some issues with hot water- it was more warm than hot; and there is no air conditioning which could be a problem in very hot weather. This is an older style Motel with...
