The location, rooms and value for this place are all excellent but what really made this place totally awesome are the owners - Paul and Bridgit. We arrived after a long drive from Christchurch; Paul and Bridgit looked after our bags and allowed us access to a room to get changed so we could go skiing. They provided friendly service,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Archway Motel last week (early June 2013) and we were very happy with the choice. The room, although somewhat dated and basic, was super clean and very warm and comfortable. The bathroom had a basic shower and a heated towel rail and again was super clean. The bed was very warm and comfortable... More

We stumbled across this motel, and SO glad we did, one of the most pleasant stays in our road trip around the South Island, wished we could have stayed longer. Bridgit made us feel very welcome and went out of her way to recommend a good place to eat in town, my American friend was very impressed with the unit,... More

We stayed at Archway over the weekend of the 11/12 May 2013 our hosts Bridgit and Paul were very helpful with advice on visiting Wanaka. We found the room had everything you needed if you wanted to self cater, even BBQ's. The room was large and warm, the bed was very comfortable which made it difficult, having to get up... More

Nice spacious unit in very pleasant grounds and with great facilities. Handy for either walk into town or out to Eely Point - a nice evening stroll. Really liked the relaxed atmosphere in Wanaka itself too - perhaps 'cause not really on the tourist map as such but found it so much nicer than Queenstown.

Thank you for your positive feedback..We especially were pleased to read your comments about how much you enjoyed Wanaka. It certainly is a special hidden place not just as a stop-over but as a base from which to do-day trips- the news is finally getting out there. We look forward to hosting you another time.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment and although old it was very warm and comfortable. A lovely short walk into town centre and very helpful service. Definitely recommend this place if you don't want super up market and modern accommodation.

We had an overnight here on the way through the South Island, arriving late and were made to feel very welcome. The accommodation was comfortable and well equipped and Brigitte arranged the next leg of our journey, a motel and cruise in Doubtful Sound which was very helpful.

The motel was on the outskirts coming in to Wanaka, across the main road from the DoC Information Centre. In a tree-filled setting, it was quiet, spacious, and the owners attentive enough. Sufficient utensils to self-cater, and even though it was autumn we still needed the electric blanket provided. Good value and even relatively romantic.

My husband and I stayed here two separate nights before and after a camping trip. The host and hostess were delightful, and the rooms spacious and modern. The motel is also well located for walking into town for dinner- I'd definitely stay here again on a future trip to Wanaka.

The Archway is not luxurious but the owners have done an excellent job of providing all that one might need for a self catering stay with them. The motel is also well back from the road and is quiet. There is a nice place out side the room to have a meal or just sit and relax. The motel is... More
