    “We really enjoyed our stay at the Snow Chalet Fairlie.”

    There is plenty of space, a modern bathroom with plenty of hot water, the kitchen also works well and was stocked with everything we needed. Very pleasant outdoor space and good views of the mountains. Just a 30 minute drive to Tekapo.
