We had such a nice, but short visit the first time that we planned to return for longer in March 2015 with a 93 year old, active mother. We arrived to a warm welcome from Arch & June & could hardly believe a year had passed! Breakfasts are wonderful as was tea in the garden. Our hosts always eager to... More

June and Archie are such good hosts that we didn't want to leave! The villa is set a short walk (about 5 mins) away from the centre of Arrowtown in a peaceful residential street. It is June and Archie's home, with two pretty guest rooms at the front, a large living/sun room and kitchen area to the rear and their... More

June and Archie run a lovely B&B in the heart of Arrowtown. Their beautiful home has been tastefully furnished and gives easy walking access to everything . We also enjoyed the evening chats in the sitting room. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Comfortable, friendly and helpful experience. June and Archie made us completely at home and we really were spoiled with home bakes and garden produce breakfasts. Ideal quiet location yet strolling distance to town.

We felt very privileged to spend one night at June and Arch's place. It really felt like we were visiting an uncle and an aunt we had not seen for a long time, they make you feel at ease very quickly without being intrusive. Breakfast was amazing ! Fresh pancakes and homemade marmalade almost brought tears to my eyes :)

Could not believe Old Villa is only 20 years old. This very cute cottage has been so lovingly built with recycled timbers etc that truly, it could well be one hundred years old. Hosts Archie and June are so friendly and genuinely welcome you into their home and generously share their local knowledge with guests. One of the nicest, friendliest... More

She welcomed us in and made us feel so at home. The room was adorable and comfortable. The internet was better than almost anywhere we stayed. She gave us such good tips and guidance. We loved talking to her over breakfast as well and sharing stories. She made a tasty breakfast full of homemade goodies. She also let us do... More

Loved staying with June and Archie. Mum and I were staying with friends mainly on our visit to NZ but we decided to spend some time in Arrowtown and Queenstown on our last week before flying home. Have always enjoyed visiting Arrowtown but this is the first time we've ever stayed and appreciated how special it is. June and Archie... More

Spur of the moment decision to stay here as we couldnt decide between Arrowtown or Wanaka. So glad we did as June & Archie made us feel very welcome. Although a villa isn't usually our style (we like modern) the accommodation was fine with some special little touches (sheets very soft & comfy). Breakfast was the highlight with June's yummy...
