Our studio unit looked as though it's just been refurbished - bright, clean and modern new finishes made for a cosy warm relaxing space for my husband and I. Bathroom and shower was really large which we didn't expect. Wish we'd checked in earlier so could chill out for a few more hours. Hostess was warm and welcoming​, can't wait...

Clean and comfortable accomodation. We had the room with a back door making unloading easy. Only slight drawback was the kitchen space which lacked space, but was adequate for all we needed. I got the idea that the owners were inexperienced? but very friendly. We had lovely weather and the town is beautiful.

This is a fantastic motel on the fringe of town. Quaint cottages in olden day style. The room is more than adequate for 2 persons and super clean. Lovely beds with enough blankets as well as electric blankets should you be cold. One large bed in main room & another single in smaller room where kitchenette is. The shower was...

We enjoyed a night in a spa room, with king size bed. We were welcomed by the hosts who lent us an umbrella. Took an easy stroll into town- a block away. Quiet location with off street parking and wifi.

Lovely place to stay, accommodation was clean and tidy. The owners were lovely to chat to and nothing was a bother. It is a short walk to the centre of Arrowtown which turned out to be a delightfully quaint little town. Shades of Arrowtown was a great place to relax and unwind. - Very enjoyable.

Set in beautiful grounds the suites are well laid out with great kitchen area and nice large bathroom and bed/lounge. Very close to centre of Arrowtown and all the eateries but nice and quiet too. We have travelled extensively and think this accommodation was one of our best finds. Highly recommend.

Walk everywhere, but so quiet. Arrowtown is a great place to stay instead of Queenstown, small quiet picturesque historical village and most of the tourists leave by 6pm. The motel has everything except hotplates. It has a microwave. Clean, comfy bed, renovated bathroom with powerful shower. Old style building in a beautiful garden setting. Great hosts who advised on where...

A peaceful retreat in the heart of this historic little town. New owners are lovely and the place is well looked after. Our room was very small, larger ones available, but well appointed. Nice little patio outside and good laundry facilities. Put on insect repellant outside though as I got bitten a few times out and about. Recommend staying here.

Only stayed here one night but will definitely return. Super close to the main street but away from the busy-ness. Had been renovated so felt very modern and was spotless. Lovely down-to-earth and friendly owners (even though I did hear they were leaving the business soon). Couldn't believe how cheap it was for what we got, and in the high...

Awesome place to stay. SOOO close to town and the river, walking tracks etc. Friendly, welcoming, clean and beautiful gardens to surround your unit. Most welcoming for a few unruly clients for a family wedding but so accommodating and understanding. Thank you for your brilliant hospitality.
