Since my wife and I last dined here, things have improved across the board. We both had the lamb with veges ($22) with Garlic Loaf for starters. The lamb melted in our mouths, with a good assortment of veges and mint sauce. Fantastic pub meal! The beer is pretty good too. Afterwards, we sat fireside (real log fire) and just... More

Rooms are very neat and clean - however bathrooms are outdated. Bathrooms are 'disabled style' with shower directly onto floor - meaning water splashes everywhere. the exhaust fan also does not work - meaning steam coats whole bathroom and condensation runs down walls - even soaking the toilet paper the dry towels. After leaving the fan on all night -... More

Hotel is in an ideal location right in the middle of the main street. Arrowtown is a quaint little town with nooks and crannies to explore. The bubbling brook is located behind the hotel with walking tracks. The hotel room has a double bed, tv, ensuite, daily service, tea and coffee facilities and heating. The hotel has a restaurant which... More

I stayed at the New Orleans Hotel in April 2015 duringthe Arrowtown Autumn Festival. The room was very dated, (1970s), overpriced (dearer than Sydney accommodation), and was extremely poor value for money but still the cheapest in Arrowtown! It snowed and there was no heater but when I asked for one was told no. I had to use the hairdryer... More

Hi, my wife and I stayed recently at this hotel to celebrate our second year wedding anniversary between the 19/04/15 to 23/04/15. We could hardly wait to check out as the first night the room flooded from a washing machine bursting it's hose from the laundry next to our room. We informed management, the best they did for us was... More

Whilst the pub is welcoming and the staff are friendly, the older unrefurbished hotel accommodation is poor. We stayed in the cheaper room which is a small concrete block-walled room. Only the TV, jug and fridge belonged to the 21st century and even then I cannot be certain of that assertion. The room had no heating, the shower cubicle is... More

$32 for frozen Chinese whitebait fritters? Chips that were cooked cooled and reheated, yuck, fish that was well over cooked , staff who didn't have a clue what was on or off the menu, disgrace to the industry, would not last 2 minutes in a city. Would only go back to give them a piece of my mind.
