From the first contact to the final goodbye, there's no doubt that this motel stay has been by far one of the best I've ever stayed at. I fell in love with the decor - the loud carpet and wallpaper was fantastic! Hubby and the kids were greatful for the electric blankets! It was only a few minutes from town...

Welcomed by a very friendly owner... He showed us to our unit and told us of the township and where the best place was to get some dinner... We booked the one bedroom unit which was quaintly decorated in tasteful Arrowtown flavours. It was warm and VERY comfortable. We were so thankful of the electric blankets as the nights were...

Authentic old style rooms an easy walk from the centre of Arrowtown. The cottages are roomy and well equipped, nicely furnished and clean and comfortable. The only negative I would say is that this was the only accommodation on our 15 night stay that didnt offer at least some free wifi

Every detail has been consistently designed to send you back in time. Nice warm and spacious (our unit had two rooms for max 4 persons plus a very big living room/kitchen), with all the amenities...

Really enjoyed our stay in Arrowtown where the cottages fit well with the charm of this historic village. The cottages were clean, plenty warm enough and very comfortable. The new owners managed the right balance of interaction and were clearly interested in making this a good experience for us.

This motel is a stone's throw from the centre of Arrowtown, so it's an ideal place to stay if you want to wander around 'car free'. This place isn't your generic, cookie-cutter motel, it's a collection of individually styled 'cottages' which have been created to offer a unique experience. If you are in the mood to try something different that...

Stayed here several years ago and was impressed then, didn't disappoint this time round. Host was friendly and very helpful. Very close to the town centre and the walk along the river bank. Rooms were tidy, clean, comfortable and war.
