Could not believe Old Villa is only 20 years old. This very cute cottage has been so lovingly built with recycled timbers etc that truly, it could well be one hundred years old. Hosts Archie and June are so friendly and genuinely welcome you into their home and generously share their local knowledge with guests. One of the nicest, friendliest... More

We loved talking to her over breakfast as well and sharing stories. She made a tasty breakfast full of homemade goodies. She also let us do... More

Loved staying with June and Archie. Mum and I were staying with friends mainly on our visit to NZ but we decided to spend some time in Arrowtown and Queenstown on our last week before flying home. Have always enjoyed visiting Arrowtown but this is the first time we've ever stayed and appreciated how special it is. June and Archie... More

Spur of the moment decision to stay here as we couldnt decide between Arrowtown or Wanaka. So glad we did as June & Archie made us feel very welcome. Although a villa isn't usually our style (we like modern) the accommodation was fine with some special little touches (sheets very soft & comfy). Breakfast was the highlight with June's yummy...

A lovely, artistic home with wonderful gardens reflecting the warmth and interest Archie & June take in receiving their guests. We felt right at home with their welcome & afternoon tea before setting out for some exploring & exercise. Breakfast was delicious, offering a wonderful variety & we left vowing to return for a longer stay. Thank you!

We've just had the most glorious two days staying at The Old Villa B&B. June and Archie couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The rooms were meticulously clean with very comfy beds and the breakfast delicious with fresh fruits from the garden, homemade muesli and preserves and a perfectly cooked breakfast. A perfect location with a 2 minute walk... More

Beautifully decorated, with gorgeous gardens, this place is a perfect! Very close to town, but wonderfully quiet. June and Archie gave us lots of valuable advice about things to see and do in Arrowtown. The town is so beautiful and interesting, and I can't help thinking we struck gold by finding this place.......it has to be the best accommodation in... More

What a fantastic 15 days we spent with June and Archie at their B&B in Arrowtown. They were the perfect hosts, very friendly, welcoming and helpful.nothing was too much trouble. We had the Patio bedroom, out onto a beautiful garden and spectacular views of the Remarkables. The breakfast, second to none, was all home cooking and what a wonderful choice... More

June and Archie are delightful hosts. They made us feel like part of the family. The breakfasts were delicious, all homemade produce (there was always something different for breakfast each day). The breakfasts kept us going all day. Our bedroom was really comfortable, beautifully decorated and had lovely views of the garden. The house is full of character and absolutely... More
