staff let me try the different brews before I settled on one I liked - the open fire inside is nice and the big deck area outside is lovely and spacious - I felt fine here on my own! It is really peaceful outside and I can imagine that it is a great place in the winter with the big... More

Unfortunatly we were in the noisy room, the fridge turned on evey hour, upstairs sliding doors were very loud and you could hear a gas boiler starting up every few hours! Room itself was nice and comfy, there was a hole in the bathroom wall exposing water pipes, the painting on the ceiling wasnt finished, on the good side you... More

Arrowtown is delightful and the New Orleans is right in the centre, full of character. It was a pub room so don't expect too much, fairly small and there was a problem with our shower cubicle but quite adequate. Friendly helpful service, good food and being a pub there was a good choice of beer. I would stay there again.

Arrowtown is such a cute wee place and the New Orleans Hotel is right in the heart of it. Even though it was winter we were toasty warm with our heater on, and it was great having the bar right there for yummy breakfasts in the morning. Downstairs is Mickey Finn's, an Irish pub owned by the same guy which... More

We were genuinely impressed by the 'deluxe' room we got at New Orleans Hotel. The decor was really quite classy, the room was very clean and had a view out over the riverbed behind the main street. Double glazed windows meant our room stayed toasty warm all night. An extra blanket was provided just in case. Tea/coffee equipment was good... More

Good clean room, thoughtful staff and very Eco- friendly power saving room. Just enjoy the tranquility of the mini town and have a good view outside the window , thought nothing but relax. It's a hotel with legacy. Also there is a bar and pool downstairs.

We would first like to say that the staff here are wonderful, the food was reasonably prices, to portions generous and the food tasty. However, the room (room 10 in ourcase) was cramped with three beds in the room, two pushed together to form a double and the single blocking the toilet door. The decor was, we can only assume,...
