This was a last minute decision to stop over at Wanaka. After a brief search, we found the Fairway Motel, called in and after a brief chat with the owner, we were settled in a very nice cosy unit. The unit has been brought right up to standard with a lovely new shower and bathroom. Some thought had been given to restocking the rooms well too and everything that we wanted was there in the unit. (unit 1 ) Great utensils for cooking too, appeared to be very new. A very comfortable Kingsize bed was a feature and after a solid drive, it was nice to relax and to get a good nights sleep. Outside, there was a small terrace which was nice and not a bad spot to put some washing out to dry out in the sun. I spoke to the owners, a young couple living there with their three children and they have been renovating the rooms as and when they could afford to. These were a solid young Kiwi Family, trying to get ahead and working their butts off to build their business. We wish them all the best as they deserve to do well. When we get back to Wanaka again, we will be staying at the Fairway Motel at Wanaka.…
This is a lovely place to stay. We had just spent 4 nights tramping, so the excellent shower, guest laundry facilities & large comfortable bed were greatly appreciated. Our unit was spotlessly clean, the staff friendly & helpful & it’s an easy walk into town. Great value for money too.
Stayed overnight with my wife and daughter. Friendly staff. Clean and tidy rooms. There are basic kitchen facilities in the room but you would not be looking to do a major cook-up. The motel unit in which we stayed is close to the main road into Wanaka town centre but we heard no traffic noise. Clearly the owner takes time & care to tend to a small garden. A pool is available for guests.
We stay here regularly because it’s a really clean and well appointed updated motel. The units all have the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in and Megan and Mark are friendly helpful hosts. Lovely setting with outdoor garden and very quiet.All in all really good value and I love the pool.
Enjoyed our stay at the Fairway. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were really clean and modern, comfy beds. A short drive or walk to the town centre and lake front. A great option for anyone staying in Wanaka
