We spent one night at Arthurs Chalet having arrived at about 5pm with no booking. Staff were very friendly and so was their cat. As other reviewers have mentioned it is in need of a little maintenance in places but overall was good. We had the Pea, Pie, Pud for dinner (homemade Arthurs Chalet pie on a bed of mashed... More

On a day out in the mountains we opted to try Arthurs Chalet for lunch as we hadn't been there for a while. It was only just on lunch time when we went inside. The place was very cold, but the welcome was warm and they were very helpful with my lunch restrictions (Coeliac), though it was determined that all... More

Once again trip advisor proved to be spot on. In the middle of the southern Alps, in winter, poor accommodation would have been a disaster. Arthurs Chalet was great. Right from the start when we were picked up from the station to being dropped off there at the end of the stay it was quality. Although the actual Chalet is... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the nearby hiking is fantastic. The food was delicious - try the seafood chowder! The pub and restaurant have a relaxed atmosphere and are a great place to meet the locals. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. When my husband needed medical care for his sciatic pain, they quickly found a rural... More

As a solo traveller, I will admit to feeling very isolated when I stayed here back in March. It was difficult to tell how many other guests were staying -I felt like the only one and it made me a bit nervous. Whilst the room was a bit basic everything was exceptionally clean. I've knocked a star off because: -... More

This time coming through Arthurs Pass we were lucky enough to spend a night and we were the only people that were happy about the miserable weather - raining, because it also meant that there was snow falling on all the mountain tops. This was an added bonus as far as we were concerned. Amongst the fog and rain was... More

We stayed here for one night at the begining of April 2013. I had pre booked this hotel prior to arrival and will admit that I was a little worried about our stay as it looked quite dated in the photos. Well let me tell you, dissapointed I was not! While the rooms are a little bit dated, they are... More

So pleased we stayed here this trip , we werent sure what to expect after having spent lots of nights in top rated motels but we were pleasantly surprised. We received a very warm welcome on arrival late in the afternoon and were shown to our compact but very clean room with a great view of the valley and surrounds.... More
