A very nice motel with good facilities and nicebeds. Units very clean. Lovely garden setting. Easy walk down to restaurants and shops. A nice place to stay for a night. I felt the staff a bit unfriendly though. We were running late on our travel and when I called to inform that we might be late for check-in the lady... More

Shades of Arrowtown was our first accommodation in New Zealand on this trip, and was a wonderful start to our holiday! Lorica greeted us warmly on arrival, and even swapped rooms around so that we could have a family room which suited us better. Lorica was the most friendly helpful person, and nothing was too much trouble for her. She... More

We stayed in the two bedroom cottage.The rooms were spotlessly clean,the owner was friendly and... More

We stayed at the shades of Arrowtown in November . The owners were very welcoming and even offered to get my washing off the line whilst we were out! The chalet was small, but clean and with all we needed for our 1 night stay. It is only a very short walk to the lovely town where there are plenty... More

We stayed in the studio unit #4 with tea& coffee making facilities and fridge but no kitchen so it was just fine for one night. The unit was small but very comfortable and clean and the bathroom was a good size with a nice shower. The internet worked well. There was a small deck overlooking a pretty garden. We could... More

The staff of our small rural school recently spent a night here and while two of us had organised this venue as a surprise, the others had no idea where they would be staying. They were thrilled with the venue, the lovely setting with rooms nestled amongst the gardens, within walking distance of shops and places to eat, great to... More

We had the pleasure of spending two nights here and because it is a quiet secluded place two minutes walk to the town we could leave the car alone and enjoy a pieceful two days. The room we stayed in was not part of the main area but it was very clean had good facilities and although very small suited... More

We stayed in the one bedroom unit with a small kitchen and lounge area. It was very comfortable and we loved the garden setting and short walk to shops and restaurants. It was very clean. It is much quieter than Queenstown and less expensive, yet still very centrally located for any activities in the area we wanted to do. The... More

A very nice motel with excellent facilities and great beds. Units very clean. Free wifi. Lovely garden setting. Easy walk down to restaurants and shops. Easy drive to Queenstown and half the cost of staying there. Would definitely stay again.
