We stayed here rather than Queenstown which is within easy reach. Equivalent accommodation in Q'town seems overpriced in comparison We received a friendly reception and having been travelling for a while were relieved to find laundry facilities on site. The location is ideal with good places to eat in easy walking distance.

We chose Arrowtown because it is close to Queenstown, but away from its hustle and bustle. Arrowtown also has its own unique charm and attractions. We settled on Shades for our stay by simply walking/driving Arrowtown and going on our instincts.....the location is quiet yet convenient to the village centre, the attractions are within easy walking distance and the setting...

We very much enjoyed our stay at Shades of Arrowtown. The location is fantastic-so close to town. Our unit was immaculate, with modern fixtures and fittings, and the setting is delightful. We are hoping to return again next year.

All the amenities you need here, plus: just a couple blocks from the center of town, but still very quiet because it's on a small street with a large front courtyard. (Of course, this was off-season, but it seems Arrowtown turns into a small village once the tourist buses leave.) Very friendly hosts, and inexpensive. We'd planned for one night,... More

This motel is great value..its clean modern and comfortable. i was a bit worried what the place would be like for such a low nightly rate.. being local we know the standard can sometime not be worth the price but Shades was a pleasant surprise and we will be going back.

We were really happy to have choosen Shades of Arrowtown. Although the regular owners were away the night we arrived we received a really kind welcome from the replacement staff. I really liked how close the hotel was to the main street - about a 2 minute walk. Arrowtown is small so anywhere is quite close but I was impressed... More

What a lovely find! Spotless rooms, huge comfortable bed and crisp sheets. Lovely, peaceful setting, with lawn, crunchy gravel paths and huge Lombardy poplars and just perfectly located to enjoy gorgeous Arrowtown. Will be back for sure!

We were thrilled with our accomodation at Shades, the units were lovely...spotless, not to mention a very comfortable bed, as was the private setting amongst the trees. walking distance to all the local restaurants, bars etc which was an unexpected bonus.We really enjoyed the company of our hosts, and will be returning!
