The Arrow Private Hotel
Ranked #2 of 12 Arrowtown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Tim provided very attentive service and took initiative to assists us in our travels. Location is great, only 5 minutes walk to the very cute Arrowtown center along a beautiful stream. The surrounds are very pretty and the room modern and well designed. Breakfast delivered to your room is a lovely treat. Would highly recommend.

We love having our mates from Aussie come to stay. Great to hear you enjoyed your time here in our quaint little town. The walk along the stream into Arrowtown is such a great way of getting to and from dinner and other adventures. Thanks for coming to stay!

My family have just spent the last eight nights staying at The Arrow Private Hotel and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean.
Close to lots of activities but still a very private secluded location. Many thanks to management for the excellent customer service.

It was great to meet your family and to see your enthusiasm for getting up and about to make the most of your holiday. I think you take the record so far for most kilometres travelled while staying at 'The Arrow'. Well done on breaking that record and we would love to see you back anytime!

Beautiful rooms, very well kept place. Very quiet also and only minutes (walking time) away from the historic center of the city.
The best surprise: the wines and canapées offered by the owners in the evening.

A must do when you are in the queenstown region.

Room Tip: Room B3 was very good

I've stayed in luxury accommodations on five continents, and The Arrow sits high atop my list of favorites. Tim has created a collection of absolutely beautiful spaces. Our spotless room featured classy and functional design innovations. Peaceful garden grounds and a path through the cozy woodlands made stepping out for a walk to downtown Arrowtown a pure pleasure. Zipping wifi, warming welcome drinks, breakfast delivered magically via the "secret cupboard" - all details cleverly designed and artfully executed. If you wonder why I'm gushing: I'm a landscape architect and a tech-savvy traveler. Finding a paradise like this anywhere in the world - and especially in my adopted favorite country of New Zealand - is worth sharing about. I hope to return someday in the not-too-distant future...

I stayed here for 3 nights recently, and what an experience. Beautiful location, surroundings, architecture and facilities. The service is fantastic - unobtrusive, professional and friendly. The whole place was incredibly clean, with comfortable beds, great breakfasts, and a welcoming drink with the hosts and fellow guests. I will be back Tim & Paulette, thank you both so much for the hospitality.

We stayed at the Arrow Private Hotel for two days while enjoying Arrowtown. Tim has created a unique experience for his guests: spacious, state-of-the-art rooms, peaceful surrounds, and close enough to the town to walk to it, but far enough away to enjoy the space. Then, at the end of the day, we went down to Tim's bar between 6 & 7pm for great wine, pre-dinner snacks and conversation. This hotel is a must-do for those travellers who want an extra-special touch in paradise!

From the moment we arrived for our 4 day stay at The Arrow Private Hotel we were totally captivated by the stunning location and very impressed by our wonderful hosts, Tim & Paulette. After a week in beautiful Queenstown playing golf with the couple were travelled with we were ready for some down time and we couldn't have been happier with our well appointed suites. They are spacious & equipped with everything you could want and if there was something you needed (torch for the walk home in the dark) it was very quickly supplied. Being hoteliers ourselves we are perhaps more aware of what effort is required to consistently maintain a property to the standards of The Arrow and we could find no fault. You will find the 5-10 stroll into town a pleasure through beautiful countryside and the restaurants are fabulous. Tim & Paulette's readiness to accommodate any request is a credit to them. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Arrow and will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: We loved the bath so be sure to request one.

It was soo good to see the four of you away and having so much fun together. We hope you enjoyed the wine trail and those wonderful walks down by the stream into town.
Hope to see you again some day when you are ready for another break away from Australia.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Arrow Private Hotel is an Arrowtown Boutique Hotel just five minutes walk from the centre of Arrowtown. With very contemporary design and styling, the Hotel recently won a prestigious architecture award and guests frequently comment on the attention to detail in the suites. In contrast, a historic stone cottage is the central meeting place at the Hotel. It is used as the reception area and as a house bar for evening refreshments and canapes. The roaring fire is very welcoming on a cold winters evening and many a tale has been told before guests walk into Arrowtown for their evening dinner. The Private Hotel is recognised one of the best Arrowtown B&B's. It operates more like a luxury lodge with each of the suites having its own private access and a hot cooked breakfast is delivered to each suite daily via a secret cupboard. With only 5 suites we are able to provide a very personal and private service . Adventures of all levels are not far away from the Hotel. Walking and cycling trails run right past the base of the Hotel which backs onto Coronet Peak Station. The Arrow Private Hotel is 20 minutes drive from the Coronet Peak ski field, from the Gibbston Wine region and from Queenstown. There are also 3 great golf courses within 5 minutes drive. ... more   less
