Stayed here for three very comfortable nights. The room was well equipped and the bed extremely comfortable. Only negative for us was that apart from the microwave the only cooking facility was the barbecue outside. This worked well for us but it would have been preferable to have a hot plate of some form in the room. Also there was... More

Thank you Mary for your hospitality. We stayed for two nights. Our room was well equipped with crockery and cutlery, spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. The wifi was included and unlimited. Mary was very helpful with information about the district. We very much enjoyed our stay.

After not so nice accomodation in Queenstown it was nice to arrive here. The rooms were generously sized. Mary was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean. Bed was comfortable and rooms were quiet. I could have easily stayed here longer.

The Motel is nice and the staff is friendly. We stayed there for 2 Nights and everything was fine. They have a gas grill in the yard which you can use for your own barbecue. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy. You can walk to the lake and to the town centre within 15 minutes. Nice location.

our overall experience in Southern Islands of New Zealand was great except for the stay at Arran Motel. The room has a smell to it and I asked for a change of room. They are fully packed and cant do a swap and said that the smell will go away in a while. We opened the door to air the... More

I am sorry you were dissappointed with your room.As we explained when you checked in we could not change rooms as we were full and find it ironic that when you vacated the unit the lingering cooking smell that was left by you was difficult to remove.We endeavour to air all our units but some odours are difficult to remove.

Pros: • Clean, spacious unit • Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but still close to the lake and main street • Lovely staff Cons: • Wi-Fi is free, but it’s very unreliable and requires you to log in all the time. I would much prefer to pay for fast/reliable internet

Great value compared to other rooms we've been in. Everything you need is provided for unless you want to cook, there's no sink or cooker but we don't need either of them. 10min from the centre. Nice lady at the reception. Great cleaning service, they even watched my cups.thx!

Stayed one night in a one-bedroom unit during quiet season. Single storey motel with plenty of carparking a block from the lake. The room is large and spacious, with an additional bed in the living area. Cooking facilities is handy. The beds are some of the best we've slept on, and has a good strong shower. Free wifi is commendable,... More
