Brilliant location right in the middle of Arrowtown, nice modern units with good heating, essential for the winter cold! Friendly proprietors and internet worked well. Can't really beat this place if you're staying in the Queenstown area.

Ideal location, close to cafes, pubs & shops. So happy I chose Arrowtown rather than Queenstown. So much history to the town. Cottage neat, clean & private. Would liked to have more than just a microwave in the kitchen so we didn't have to eat out all the time. Charge applied for washer & dryer in laundry.

I mulled over this decision, so maybe this will help others: Queenstown has a beautiful setting on gorgeous Lake Wakatipu, but it's very much a busy and crowded tourist town. Nothing wrong with that...but if you instead want a calm, lovely and local village setting to start and finish your day, I'd recommend Arrowtown as base for the area, and... More

We thought the accommodation was great and perfect for our needs. So close to the beautiful historic town and the local pub close by for a lovely meal. It was a shame we could only stay for one night.

Great location in a fun town. Across the street from a park and walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. Room was well appointed and quiet. Owner was friendly and and helpful with area information.

Beautiful little chalets in the heart of Arrowtown. Recently refurbished and provide good kitchen facilities and comfortably bed. It was really quiet despite being in the centre of town. The best part - the view from the verandah - heavenly in Autumn. Highly recommend and will be back.

Very good location a block away from town center. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very nice. We stayed during fall and the colors were absolutely gorgeous on the property and surrounding area. Would definitely recommend/stay again!

Our group of 27 were on a tour of the South Island for 14 days. All our clients wrote down Shades of Arrowtown as their favourite place to stay. The units were lovely, the park like gardens were beautiful and the location from the main street of town was awesome. We stayed there 2 nights and would stay there again... More
