Ahuriri Motels (1993) was originally built to accommodate single men, following the completion of the Twizel and Benmore Dams. These north-facing units are now part of our motel complex with garden settings, country atmosphere and stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges. It is the perfect place to stay! You can choose from a studio unit or one of our 1, 2 or 3-bedroom units, with free wireless internet for our motel guests. We also have a backpackers facility and sites available for caravans and campervans. Our location is quiet and peaceful on the edge of town, just 500m from shops, cafés, restaurants, hot tubs and our local airfield.

"We have stayed here twice now and it's definitely the best place in the area. Pricing is very reasonable and the units themselves are exactly what you would want from a small motel in rural New Zealand." (May 2019)
"Great motel with outside patios. Very spacious and clean, there was nothing we didn't like about the property. A really tremendous value for the money when you compare it to other properties in the area of Mt. Cook." (April 2019)
"Lovely campground with great lounge area and clean kitchen & bathroom. We stayed here while our car was at the mechanic and it was the perfect place for those days. The owners are the kindest people you can imagine! We would definitely recommend the place. Thanks again for everything!" (March 2019)
