I found nothing too serious about which to complain during my one night stay. The two free-standing oil coil heaters had been turned on prior to my arrival so the unit was warm from the outset - as was the welcome from the very helpful hostess. However, I do wonder how it might be on one of the freezing winter... More

Our experience at this motel was vastly better than we could have imagined. The owners, the staff, our room (6) amenities - all exceeded our expectations.If you ski or hike, bike in summer and appreciate a quite night's sleep combined with easy access to Queenstown and the Crown Range, the Arrowtown Motel is a perfect home base. We stayed 16... More

The room was very clean and new. Took about 10 mins walk to town, but the journey was pleasant as the scenery on the way was breath-taking. Went there last week and it was very cold in Arrowtown. When I checked in, the lady told me that she already had the heater on in the room for me, which was... More

Thanks for your review! And thanks for the tip to advise guests to carry a wee torch. Having never walked this route I didn't realise there were not that many street lights. Most people nowadays have smart phones which have an "assistive light" built -in. Always come in handy. kind regards and see you next time! More

I travelled with my 7 and 6 year old children for four days of skiing at Cardrona. The Arrowtown Motel was an excellent accommodation option which made the daily trip shorter than going from Queenstown. The Arrowtown Motel staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They went out of their way to ensure we had everything we... More

My partner and I had booked to stay for 3 nights in the centre of Queenstown. By the second night I needed to cleanse myself of the horrific accommodation we had booked so booking our last night with Arrowtown Motel Apartments wasn't initially part of our road trip game plan. However, was the best decision we could have ever made.... More

Warm welcome from the hosts. Quiet bedroom and area. The appartment is big, nicely decorated, clean and well furnished (with kitchen tools that are necessary to cook easy meals) Exactly what we were looking for.

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
