We enjoyed a night in a spa room, with king size bed. We were welcomed by the hosts who lent us an umbrella. Took an easy stroll into town- a block away. Quiet location with off street parking and wifi.

Lovely place to stay, accommodation was clean and tidy. The owners were lovely to chat to and nothing was a bother. It is a short walk to the centre of Arrowtown which turned out to be a delightfully quaint little town. Shades of Arrowtown was a great place to relax and unwind. - Very enjoyable.

Set in beautiful grounds the suites are well laid out with great kitchen area and nice large bathroom and bed/lounge. Very close to centre of Arrowtown and all the eateries but nice and quiet too. We have travelled extensively and think this accommodation was one of our best finds. Highly recommend.

Walk everywhere, but so quiet. Arrowtown is a great place to stay instead of Queenstown, small quiet picturesque historical village and most of the tourists leave by 6pm. The motel has everything except hotplates. It has a microwave. Clean, comfy bed, renovated bathroom with powerful shower. Old style building in a beautiful garden setting. Great hosts who advised on where...

A peaceful retreat in the heart of this historic little town. New owners are lovely and the place is well looked after. Our room was very small, larger ones available, but well appointed. Nice little patio outside and good laundry facilities. Put on insect repellant outside though as I got bitten a few times out and about. Recommend staying here.

Only stayed here one night but will definitely return. Super close to the main street but away from the busy-ness. Had been renovated so felt very modern and was spotless. Lovely down-to-earth and friendly owners (even though I did hear they were leaving the business soon). Couldn't believe how cheap it was for what we got, and in the high...

Awesome place to stay. SOOO close to town and the river, walking tracks etc. Friendly, welcoming, clean and beautiful gardens to surround your unit. Most welcoming for a few unruly clients for a family wedding but so accommodating and understanding. Thank you for your brilliant hospitality.

It feels like a motel, and that's alright. The price point was hard to beat in Arrowtown. Walking distance to a few restaurants that are recommended for dinner. The motel could improve in its cleanliness -- our floor got dirty the first night and the cleaner left it as is with a bit of mud.

Very clean. Very helpful owners. Beautiful setting. Try the walk along the river. We had a studio room, but there were chairs to sit outside. Good heating and a heated blanket. Good shower. Much cheaper than Queenstown and convenient for the airport.

Nice place with good parking. The property is charming but the rooms are dated and small. The staff was helpful with our late check-in. Overall it was a nice stay but a little on the pricy side for what you get.
