Decent little place.
Review of Aorangi Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Jan 2024via mobile
This is a quiet little motel. Easy walking to the grocery store, where we got supplies for breakfast. We had a small kitchen in our room.
The pillows were very thick but there were thinner ones in the closet.
Cookware needs updating. A spatula broke and the fry pan wouldn't sit flat on the stove.
We had a comfortable night but it needs some updates.

      Erin and Anne were so helpful to me as I waited several days for my Motorhome to be fixed. Their generosity made my wait a happy one. The rooms are warm, sunny, well appointed,
      & have mountain views

      The motel has new owners from the last time I stayed in Fairlie (3 years ago). The service was most warm, friendly, helpful, and could not have been better. The motel is well situated, and is only a short walk into town. There is good wifi as well. It had everything there you needed for a comfortable stay. I was there for five days fly fishing for trout around this area.

      Great family friendly place to stay. Clean, tidy and functional. Had everything we needed and more. Comfortable and welcoming family feel to the place.

      Really nice owners and staff. We arrived a bit later, but there were instructions at the office for us.

      Would definitely stay again.

      I have driven through Fairlie many times over the years, but never stopped, yet alone stayed they. This trip, I decided to stay locally and chose the Aorangi Motel. I am now kicking myself for not doing this years ago!

      Delightful small motel, full of character. It is set back from the main road so absolutely no noise and hardly any light getting through the curtains, both of these facts gives you a good nights sleep, but of course, the very comfortable bed helps too!

      The rooms are very well equipped. It should be remembered that the building is of older design and some of the fittings are quite old - BUT, they still perform the function they were designed for and are part of the wonderful character of the motel. There is no need to modernise things if the original design still works - and for me, it works very well.

      To the owners: - thank you for providing such a great, characterful motel and thank you also, for the "treat chocolates" that were well appreciated!
