Lots of people advised us not to stay in Queenstown because of its commercial, touristy nature and we’re so glad that we followed their advice. Arrowtown is a fabulous little town with great architecture, interesting things to do and wonderful eateries. Arrowfield apartments was easily the best self-catering place that we stayed in during our month in NZ, so much so that we regretted not having stayed longer than we did. The 2 bedroom apartment was immaculately clean, beautifully furnished/decorated and equipped with everything that we could possibly have wanted. Their was a dishwasher and laundry facilities in the garage (all included in the rental price.) Free wifi and a selection of local magazines were available. The bed was exceptionally comfy and the toiletries were eco-friendly. Outdoor furniture was supplied along with a BBQ. Tennis courts and pool are on site. The owners were fantastic, accommodating a very late arrival and an early departure with absolutely no problem. It is a short drive to Queenstown and up to the ski resorts on the surrounding hills, so you can easily take advantage of all it has to offer. The gondola ride is fantastic (if expensive.) Supermarkets, petrol stations and retail therapy are all nearby, making life very easy. Fantastic place. Like home from home. Cannot praise it highly enough. …
We stayed at Arrowfield for a week and enjoyed every minute. The 3 bedroom apartments are beautifully presented and we had a comfortable bed in a spacious bedroom with ensuite. Upstairs were two other bedrooms which shared a family bathroom with shower over bath. Everything was provided in the kitchen to prepare meals and the bonus is the Arrowtown Butcher literally over the fence (and a short walk around the street!) There is a pool and Tennis Court available for use which is a bonus. We walked into Arrowtown which took us about 15 minutes at a leisurely pace. Scott is a very accommodating Manager and made us very welcome at the complex. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to couples and families visiting the Arrowtown-Queenstown area.
To end our month-long visit to New Zealand, we spent 4 nights at the Arrowfield Apartments in Arrowtown. We got a 2 bedroom unit with 2 bathrooms which also had a nice kitchen and a lovely living/dining area. What a peaceful place to return to each evening. The location turned out to be excellent. We had very easy access to Queenstown and Arrowtown but also to Cromwell and Wanaka. You can walk to Arrowtown in 10 minutes which means no need for taxi or designated driver for dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants in Arrowtown. And then when you are ready to leave the airport is an easy 20 minutes away.
What a gem this place is. Family of 5 super impressed with the comfy, modern apartments. Pool and gym also a hit with teens. So close to Arrowtown and Franklin and Queenstown. The ideal location for adventuring from. Will definitely come back!
This place is highly recommended. The staff are very friendly and they accommodated us in between flight changes and late arrivals. The apartment we stayed at was clean and well stocked with everything we needed - actually it had more than we expected. We felt like just being at home with all amenities and comfort available. Highly recommended for travelling families. This place is the best value for money you will get in QT and Arrowtown.
