Nice place to stay

Review of Aorangi Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Mar 2024
This motel is no-frills, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and that includes good wifi as well. Not only great value, but the people who run this motel could not be more friendly. As a matter of fact, I think they are wonderful. Whenever I visit Fairlie, I stay at the Aorangi Motel, and that speaks for itself.

        Clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient - just what we needed when in Fairlie. It is easily walkable to the town for meals yet easy to find and park the car. Good, friendly family business. Recommended if you are travelling through the area.

        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.
