We recently stayed at Arrowtown Motel Apartments, we selected it online for the updated look, room availability (for 4 people, separate room for the kids) and its playground. Glad to say it is a lovely place to stay. The updated interior looks better in real life than the pictures. The exterior is well maintained, tidy and had lots of lovely... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review and pleased you enjoyed Arrowtown. Just a small correction with the internet - it was recently upgraded to FREE and UNLIMITED so I suspect my room info sheets need updating - I apologise for that!!! We look forward to your return. x More

Nice place to stay, very modern looking inside and out, welcoming receptionist. Easy walk to town, with a 4 Square close by. None of the hustle and bustle of Queenstown here. Arrowtown is very quaint with all the old buildings, got a bit snap happy.

Lovely place, very nice reception on arrival. Clean, modern and tidy. Nicely decorated. Very quiet, had the best sleep in ages. A short walk to town, shops and river. Would definitely stay at Arrowtown Motel again.

Great place to stay. Excellent helpful friendly staff. Spotlessly clean. 10 minute walk into Arrowtown. You can walk down by the river into Arrowtown which was very scenic. Good laundry facilities.The bed was comfortable,

We came to be here by accident, we really intended to stay in nearby Queenstown. An easy drive from the MacKenzie Lakes district (Mt Cook and Lake Tekapo), Arrowtown is a beautiful village steeped in history and reveling in it. The village is postcard perfect with heritage buildings and a pristine stream. Mountains surround the valley and there are a... More

We stayed in Arrowtown Motel Apartments for 4 nights just before Christmas time. There was my husband and I and our 2 adult children and it was the nicest stay we had the whole trip. We can't fault them and we give them 10 out of 10 for everything. The first night we had a 1 bedroom apartment (No 8)... More

We stayed here for one night and it was great. The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in had everything we needed, was well laid out and spacious. It was so clean it looked as though it had just been redecorated! Very quiet and a welcoming host - not sure what else we could ask for...oh yes, there was free wifi... More

Members of my family used this motel as overflow accommodation over the Christmas/New Year period as my home could not accommodate all family members. I initially chose this motel as it was the only motel in Arrowtown offering a two bedroom unit. However, the motel subsequently exceeded our expectations. The apartment had recently been refurbished and was clean, quiet and... More

We booked the 1 bedroom apartment for 2 adults and 2 kids. The room was clean, spacious and new. And the beds wasn't too soft for me which is good. The area is quiet and peaceful.I actually preferred this place compared to Queenstown so it was good that I chose to stay in Arrowtown for a night instead of just... More

We spent 2 nights at this motel,a quiet,very clean and convenient motel with excellent facilities and a most obliging staff,10 minutes from the town centre on foot. We would thoroughly recommend this motel to travellers in this beautiful little town.
