While it is in the process of being upgraded it is still a great venue to stay. Very clean, great service. Central, so all you need nearby. Children's play area on site. Good Wi-Fi but not full range of TV channels as reception limited in area.

Great hotel with a comfortable stay. The staff are very friendly and willing to show you what there is to do in the area. Highly recommend. Our 3-year old daughter loved the playground on site which is very helpful to let her run around and get that much needed energy out. Kitchens were easy to use and glad they were... More

Wow, fabulous words and so much appreciated!!! Good points about staying in Arrowtown vs Queenstown as QT is definitely a vibrant must-see destination but not everyone's "cup of tea". We love our wee village - how can you not? Tks again and look forward to your next visit. More

Stayed here with two nights with my elderly mother. Did not think much of the booking system - got rung a couple of days before to say the room we had booked a month earlier had been doubled booked then got a phone call to say I was supposed to be there the night before! Was not impressed. Fridge needed... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Sorry you were inconvenienced to a point of annoyance. Sadly we can't undo wrongs but are trying our best to streamline the booking system. However mistakes do happen with 3rd party booking systems as there is a few minutes delay before we receive the booking into our system. It has happened... More

We stayed at the Arrowtown Motel Apartments for 3 nights, nice comfortable rooms, well fitted out with small kitchens. The management and staff were great and really helpful. Arrowtown is about 20 Kms north of Queenstown, a charming little town, quiet and lots of good eating houses. Full marks from our group!

Nice and quiet place, new and clean. Comfortable bed and good shower. The small kitchen has always you need to prepare a nice meal. Supermarket in nearby, so you can prepare your own breakfast. You'll also find a lot of restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. Parking is available. The owners are very kind! I strongly recommend this Motel.

We stayed 2 nights in this renovated motel in February 2014. The new proprietors were very helpful & friendly. The rooms very comfortable & clean with excellent cooking facilities. For us the best motel on a 3 week tour of South Island.

We stayed 4 nights in a renovated one bedroom apartment. The apartment was tastefully decorated, clean ,large, comfortable bed, good kitchen and excellent continuous supply of hot water. We self catered each night as we had been sightseeing every day and preferred to relax at the apartment. Renovations to the remaining units will commence around April. The owners, Colleen and...

We stayed in this motel for 5 days, it was very comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. A lovely sunny terrace with table and chairs for outdoor dining, and the use of a BBQ if required. The owners were efficient and very obliging. It was a short walk from the historic village, a must see, also the cinema. Queenstown only... More
