The Arrow is luxurious; great attention to detail, and fantastic personal service. The owners have really thought about what people will want, and they excelled at meeting our needs. Our stay was all we could have wanted from a private retreat.

Is was fantastic having you stay with us during your escape from the city. Next time come back as little earlier in the year as we would love you to see the Autumn Festival spectacular change of colour, as the trees retreat for winter. It is an amazing sight even from the rooms looking out across the valley. Thanks again... More

Tucked away beside the Arrow River, internationally styled small hotel provides a haven from the bustling tourist mecca of the Wakatipu basin. Once cosseted in an elegant architect designed room with views up the Arrow Valley, and treated to fine Pinot Noir in the old miners cottage by a gracious host, the real world retreats rapidly. Great breakfasts, bookings for... More

Stayed only one night on our way to Queenstown. Wow! what a fantastic find, we holiday in Queenstown every year and will now be allocating time for a regular stay at this incredible Hotel. The apartments are very modern, sophisticated and stylish; yet maintain a sense of warmth. Although this is a modern hotel, it blends seamlessly into the natural... More

excellent location with wonderful host and hostess.. this is a lttle jewel amongst the trees... cleverly designed self contained apartments allow one enjoy a relaxing visit or an adventure..hors d'oeuvres in the pretty cottage enhanced by Tims knowledge of wines and tasting process was even better..even sampled a home brewed whiskey by Tims dad which was served with 'grannys' scrummy...

Ye two are allowed back anytime! The discussion about Irish politics made the whole idea of a home made whiskey, or is that whisky, all the more palatable. It certainly helped ease the way towards a fantastic dinner at Saffron. There are wedding plans to be shuffled and sorted and we've had some practice here lately with wedding aftermatch functions....

It was lovely to meet up with your family out on such a fast paced getaway adventure. You sure had packed a lot into the itinerary. Picking guests up from dinner in Arrowtown is fun for me as I get regular up to date reviews of the great selection of restaurants we do have right at hand. The conversation is... More

We stayed at The Arrow during the weekend of the Motatapu off road marathon event. As a family of 6 we found the two floor accomodation clean, tidy and private. The fit out is 'simlpe luxury'. The owner was very friendly and helpful with any bookings we required (e.g. restaurant reservations & recommendations). Having breakfast and evening drinks in 'The... More

We throughly enjoyed having your very polite and friendly family come and stay with us. Congratulations on doing the Motatapu marathon. Having done it myself, I know how much work it is, but also how beautiful the scenery is along the way. There are many more walks and runs down here to do and I know you have an adventurous... More

We stayed there last week for 4 nights and we could not have been happier! The rooms are very spacious, spotlessly clean and decked out to the max. For what you get we found the price is MOST reasonable and the position is great with a short stroll to the quant town center. Brecky to die for, big TV with... More

what can we add - did anyone else mention that this is totally self contained accommodation with lux equipment so you could self-cater in style though it is only a few minutes delightful walk into town where 'Saffron' was very good indeed for dinner and the breakfast delivered discreetly to the locker in the room was great.
