Owner description: Arrowtown’s surprises at every corner with new activities, restaurants, cafes and accommodation options. You don’t have to dig far in this sophisticated, yet quaint village to find why this charming town oozes heritage whether the newly restored miner’s cottages, the latest exhibit at the Lakes District Museum or the magnificent trails. Arrowtown is renowned for its café and restaurant culture. Whether fine dining, or enjoying a casual pizza or pie, there are delicious options for every budget and time span. Boutique beers and local wines are just some of the beverages on offer. Arrowtown’s tree lined streets, shops and cafes housed in original buildings and its proximity to walking /cycling tracks, vineyards, golf courses and ski fields, make it a must visit destination. Arrowtown sits only 20 minutes from Queenstown and a mere 15 minutes from Queenstown airport.

“Awesome Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

Scenery here is awesome, cosy and people are friendly. Some eateries here, food though not fantastic, but setting is nice. Not far from airport, certainly worth a visit!

“Perfect place to relax and enjoy a quant town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

We stopped here en route to Queenstown, we loved Arrowtown! It's so quaint and great to wander round. We took time to explore the Chinese Settlement, which is worth a visit and doesn't cost a cent!
There are plenty of places you can grab a bite to eat as well, most tastes are catered for.

“Cute!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

Autumn colours amazing! Typical quaint village steeped in New
Zealand history. However, it is typical of Tourism where prices are earmarked at a high end bracket. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Will return again.

“Try and go without the crowds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

We visited en route to Queenstown on a Sunday, and the place was packed ! We could see however that it was pretty special, and made time to re-visit a couple of days later. Toured the Chinese settlement and had great coffee and cakes in the Postmasters Restaurant.
