Great location, minute or so from town and around 15min to Queenstown. Quiet and comfortable unit. Reception very helpful and friendly. Unit was clean tidy. Arrowtown has several nice restaurants and during the day there is a bakery-café which has good traditional fare

Very comfortable, warm, spacious and spotlessly clean. A pleasant 10 minute walk to town and a very quick drive. Very quiet and cosy. I slept in the double bed and my daughter in the single bed in the lounge, both were very comfy. It was pretty chilly outside but lovely and warm inside. Plenty of heaters on hand but only... More

We just had four nights in Arrowtown and this motel (2 bedroom unit) was perfect for our family of five. Very warm, comfy beds and extremely friendly and informative people on the front desk, including Pepper (or Pippa?) the Spaniel who was a huge hit with our kids. Thank you.

After staying 5 nights in this motel, I couldn't have been happier. The staff were excellent, constantly smiling and always willing to help. The room was styled simple yet modern, very clean and warm at all times. There wasn't a lot of cooking area (no oven and a very small stove), however it was enough for breakfast or a simple... More

Basically, they get everything right. 1. Spacious, we had a two bedroom suite (unit 5) for 4 nights. It was plenty of room for 2 parents and 3 children 7-13 years old. 2. Warm. It was exceptionally cold in Arrowtown when we stayed. But the rooms were very comfortable. There's plenty of control to make it just how you like... More

Our family of 5 (3 x teenage children) enjoyed a super-comfy night at this motel. Modern décor, quite but handy location, lovely staff, excellently equipped kitchen, warm and toasty (despite temp of -3 outside) and fabulously comfy beds - I actually thought I was in my own bed at home when I woke up. We would like to have stayed... More

Room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a separate bedroom and kitchenette. Had the best shower we have experienced in a motel for a while (it had water pressure! you actually got a good shower). It could be a bit far to walk to town depending on the weather. No parking was available next to our room, but other rooms... More

Thanks for your review. We always appreciate positive words and yours were great! As the owners we have travelled extensively and for us the 2 most important things are a good shower and a decent bed. If they get this right it's worth the money you pay. So I'm glad you enjoyed the shower!!! take care and thanks again... More

I had the flu when I left home so didn't really feel like going on holiday. It was so nice to arrive to unit 4 & relax. The heating was on & it was lovely & cosy. Units have been refurbished with funky colours. The decor is modern and fresh looking. The unit is clean with luxurious and comfy beds.... More

Thanks for your lovely words of praise!

I stayed here for a week. It was a lovely experience. I have only one thing I didn't like about the room: here was no easy accessible power outlet in the bedroom. I had to move the bed a little to gain access to the one under the bed. Apart from that, it was wonderful. The heater was turned on... More

Thanks for your review and for pointing out the lack of plugs in the unit you stayed in. Unfortunately this one was on the first rooms we fixed up way at the beginning and hadn't given those type of issue enough thought. You'll be happy to know we called the electrician in to add a few more plug points to... More
