Have stayed here a couple of times now but with new owners it has got better. The service on arrival was top notch & the room was really clean & tidy. It helps that the Motel is in a quiet place in town but is within easy walking distance from the town centre, only about 5 mins. Great place and...

This is a No 1 place of choice. There is nothing that could be better. The owner is a very nice man who is giving everything he has to make this a great place. The flowers everywhere is what just gives this place the thumbs up. I sat on the veranda drinking wine looking out and thinking YES this is...

This quaint motel is walking distance to Arrowtown centre and convenient for driving to Queenstown and further afield. The outdoor space/ decor is well maintained and welcoming, even if the indoors could do with some modernisation. Karl is a major bonus ... friendly, patient and very informative.

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

Carl has succeeds in sending us back in the time of the gold-rush era. The rooms are nicely decorated without falling into kitsch and cheesiness. 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...
