The room was spacious, clean and very quiet. Our hosts were personable and helpful. We loved Wanaka and will definitely stay at Archways next time we visit.

We spent four nights in this motel. We've made several trips to New Zealand and this motel is equal first for all the places we've stayed.

Pros:

1. Inexpensive for Wanaka, particularly if you book using their autumn special

2. Very friendly and helpful hosts

3. Comfortable rooms. We had two bedrooms (one queen bed and three single beds), a fully-equipped kitchen and a comfortably-furnished family area

4. The hosts provide access to their DVD library. There were several titles suitable for our young daughter

5. Quiet - we didn't hear the family next door

6. Located about a 10 minute walk from the shops and the playground

Negative

1. Unreliable wireless internet access

2. Mattress was quite soft, but it may be preferred by others

Overall, highly recommended. We plan to stay here when we visit Wanaka in the future

Management response:Responded May 14, 2010

Thank You Aussie Doug and lovely family for all your valuable comments.We try to encourage all our guests to provide feedback- especially if it isconstructive and helpful and most importantly to us directly as well as sharing with others. You will be interested to know that we have improved our wireless reception by 100% with a new aerial which has made a big difference. We had already planned for new Queen/King beds in the family unit and we have made many inroads in our plan to upgrade our facilities. We have already redecorated and refurbished( Reinsulated) 5 studio units in 2 years and have put new flat screen LCD Tvs in all units, new funky heaters and have many more renovation ideas. Our next big plan is to build new 1 bedroom units with ensuite only units to mix and match with these. They will be fully self-contained with Full kitchen/own laundry, elevators.Plenty to look forward to. We look forward to seeing you all again in the near future. All the best Bridgit & Paul- Your Archway Hosts

The review title says it all. The room was great, the staff was extremely accommodating, and the location was fine.

My wife, son and daughter came to this motel without prior booking. We did not stay in the traditional motel courtyard, but in a suite inn a new building next door. This was completed to a very high standard, was very clean and comfortable. The motel is on a side road close to the centre of the lovely town of Wanaka, and is quiet and peaceful.

Great for skiiers or tourists like us. Well furnished ground floor rooms in a pretty garden with scenic views. Park at the door. Easy walk to the shops and/or the lake. Information available. Studio rooms are ideal for couples and the kitchenettes help to keep costs downs - DIY breakfast for example, saves at least $10 per person.
