This Motel was good for us as a couple. It was tidy and clean. The bathroom was a wet room and for two seniors this was ideal. There was everything you needed if you wished to self cater. Duchy gave us information about restaurants in which to eat and did not set us wrong. Thank you.

This is a spacious roomy motel in the lovely township of Fairlie in the Mackenzie country is about 20 mins from Lake Tekapo. The units have full cooking facilities and we stayed in a two bed unit which could have slept 5. The manager is welcoming and there is free wifi. Pick up the local newspaper - ‘The Fairlie Accessible,’ which gives you an interesting read of the area; ‘Advice from an old Farmer’ on page 12 of the January edition is enlightening. Whether you are travelling through this lovely part of the South Island or using this place as a base it comes highly recommended. Paul and Mary Reet DUNEDIN

Pinewood Motels is not terribly exciting, but it is more than adequate. The bed was good, and the kitchenette and bathroom were decent size. Free WiFi. Fairlie is a "blink and you've missed it" kind of town and we stayed there one night to break up the drive.

Just a little overnighter and decided to mix it up a bit as I've never stayed here before. Have been incredibly impressed with the price, the modern decor and the cleanliness here. Even the kids were urging me to give a 5 star review as it's been wonderful - FYI - where can we get those little sachets of organic hot chocolate???!!! Those 5 stars are well earned and I highly recommend considering Pinewood for a stay in picturesque Fairlie.

The bed was OK, comfy enough, good sheets. Had all the kitchen bits needed. But everything else was well worn. Tatty towels, outside windows and curtains need a good clean, and don't even look at the toilet brush - that was grim! Did the job for an overnight but not especially welcoming.
