Our room was large and comfortable and lovely and warm. The kitchen facilities were very good and the suite was lovely and clean. The owner was very welcoming and upgraded our friends to a suite next to us. The motel is very close to the main street and we were able to walk to dinner each night.

As in many of the places we stayed in NZ, we were greeted by a friendly staff that made us feel welcomed and provided local insights on attractions etc. The rooms were larger than average, very comfortable and quiet. We stayed there multiple nights, it was hard to leave such a beautiful area. One other positive note. We had a... More

We stayed at the Arran the nights of Friday, March 13, and Saturday, March 14. There were five of us and the suite -- with two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, the other with a queen plus two twins) -- was very spacious and clean. The only complaint was the wi-fi: it worked for us only about 1/2 the... More

This place was fantastic, on a quiet side street within easy walking distance to town and two fantastic owners who obviously care for their place and their customers. The company we booked with had put us in a studio, but the owner (Rennie) upgraded us to a one bedroom before we got there, which was great. Very accommodating and went... More

We spent two nights in a one bedroom room that had everything we needed for a comfortable stay including a kitchenette and laundry facilities. The room was very clean and within walking distance to both the town centre and the lake. We found the area very peaceful and quite. We would recommended staying here to anyone.

We stayed two nights in a large very clean and comfortable room. We used the barbecue one evening and ate at an adjacent picnic table. The location is a little way from the town centre but there is a short walk to the lakeside and its wonderful views. All rooms are at ground level and ideal for access by disabled.

A beautifully presented two bedroom apartment. Exceptionally clean, and we just loved the presentation of bathroom products, towels etc. Comfortably furnished. Easy stroll into town centre. The whole complex is lovely and even though it was booked out it was very quiet. A true credit to the very friendly, helpful owners.
