This is by far one of the best inns at which I've stayed. Tim gets it - he knows what guests need/want and he delivers. The evening wine events were a perfect way to get to know him and his passion for the area. The 5 min walk to the town was a fun trek; Arrowtown is SO much better... More

Stunning location and beautiful views from our suite which was more like an apartment. Kitchenette, dining table, living space, very comfortable bed and gorgeous modern bathroom. Double shower and the bath could be incorporated into the main room by sliding a door back. Perfect spot for couples. Definitely modern, not quaint and rustic like Arrowtown itself. There is a beautiful... More

We had a fantastic 3 night stay at The Arrow. Greeted by our host Tim who showed us to our suite and explained the short walk through the forest and by the creek into town. That track was used several times over our short stay ! Close to fantastic restaurants and only 25 kms into Queenstown (tho' once you're in... More

We stayed in the toi toi suite, and the hebe suite as a 2 room apartment during the weekend of the Motatapu challenge. We were welcomed and well looked after by a friendly yet unimposing host Tim. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, but don't have sky tv to watch the rugby or trackside, although we were too tired to be... More

We picked The Arrow based on the many excellent reviews and were not disappointed. The suites are impeccably designed (particularly if you like modern architecture) and a pleasure to come home to. The location is perfect, a short walk by the creek to the main attractions. And Tim was a great host with many helpful suggestions. The Arrow combines the... More

The Arrow Private Hotel is boutique accommodation in stunning Arrowtown. We chose this place as it had close proximity for a wedding of close friends in February 2014. We stayed in the ToiToi Suite for four nights. The room was beautifully appointed and functional, and certainly the design captures all day sun which in turn heats the room perfectly. The... More

What a great find The Arrow was-- the perfect place to spend the final two nights of our 3 week South Island holiday. Tucked into a quiet residential pocket only a 5 minute walk from Arrowtown's fantastic restaurants and watering holes, The Arrow truly is refined casual elegance at its best. Tasefully decorated, spacious and subtley luxurious- hug soaking tub,... More

We originally planned to stay for two nights, but our experience was so good we ended coming back for two nights more. Tim was a friendly, charming host intent on making our stay as delightful as possible. It was the little things that made it a cut above - the umbrella by the door when it started to rain; breakfast... More

It was fabulous to have you stay and many years since we last met up in Auckland. We are very fortunate to have so many great restaurants, cafes and bars just over five minutes walk from the Hotel. Hope to see you down here again sometime soon. More

This was our second trip to the South Island and my wife and I were thrilled with our stay here. Tim took excellent care of us and everything we wanted was available and quickly provided. Met some wonderful and interesting people while we were there. Beautiful views from the room, which was also great and breakfast brought to our room... More
