Convenient location means a reasonable walk to most of what a visitor would want in town. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable. No toiletries in the room when we arrived but double the next morning when we reported the issue. Enjoyed our stay.

The room was a wonderful size and had everything we needed. Staff were very helpful, suggesting interesting places to visit and providing us with maps and brochures. The room was very clean and cleaning staff helpful and discreet.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary, I wanted a little bit of luxury....and it lived up to it for sure. The exectutive spa suite was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented and the twin spa bath was.....well awesome. Will certainly return again and recommend to friends and family. Thank you

This is a modern, comfortable place to stay that has made the effort to be more than just another generic motel. There is somewhere comfortable to sit, good beds, big TV, a desk or table to work at etc.

It was mine and my partners one year, I had booked this hotel as a surprise and arranged to have candles and rose petals. I went in a little early so I could see what it looked like before hand so I could change it if I didn't like it. But it was literally everything I could imagine and more.... More

We stayed at Arthur's Court at the end of our South Island tour. The units were very modern, warm and comfortable. I would go so far as to call them luxurious. The units themselves were the best we found. However, don't be fooled by the comment made by reception staff that the double glazing will keep out the traffic noise.... More
