A three generation road trip was well catered for at this location. Very friendly and helpful staff on arrival. Great location with lots of walks to explore, tours available, shops close by and a very clean, spacious motel with large bathroom to relax at the end of the say. Clean, fresh and quiet.

Great location, and although it is not on the lake it is only about a 2 minute walk to the lakeshore, and a 10 minute walk to the downtown area. The motel is clean and quiet. Good basic accommodation, and excellent value for what we paid.

We were disappointed with this accommodation. It was meant to be self catering - there was nowhere to sit and eat and washing up was in the toilet area. There was a microwave, toaster and small fridge. Staff not rude but hardly welcoming. we were glad we were only there for one night.

Very clean & comfortable. I was feeling unwell and was welcomed and accommodated early so was able to sleep while friends did their sight seeing. They had a pleasant meal out on the waterfront. Thanks

We arrived late at night. The owner left the rooms open for us with milk in the fridge and Internet code for wifi surfing. Warm people and good location for driving to mount cook. Overall we were very satisfied. We recommend it.

We found the Arran to be very friendly, clean and close to the town centre. However, the lack of a sink to wash up in we thought a major fault. Washing in a bathroom sink is not ideal on a hygiene basis.

Stayed here for a night and all I can say it was an average stay. Basic motel that was clean. Quite costly for a night in te anua, would look else where another time. One annoyance we suffered was a very loud fridge that had to be switched off so we could sleep. Beds were very hard and we both...

We spent 1 night here with our son and his partner. Room was very clean, tidy and well supplied. It is well appointed for the city centre shops and restaurants. We stayed here before going onto the Milford sound cruise, the staff were very helpful and they even sorted out a parking space for our car for the day whilst...

Room was good, we were taken and shown our room, not just handed the key. Happy with location of hotel, close to lake and main street. Mary and Rennie let us leave our car on there premises while we spent a night on Milford Sound. Very Happy
