Love the concrete simplicity of the room the bed was comfortable the breakfast service is innovative and the bathroom is probably the highlight. The pre arrival communication was excellent. It's a boutique slightly left field experience but worth broadening your horizons on.

Oh. My. Goodness. The Arrow is fab...u...lous. Our apartment was beautiful, the result of careful planning, stunning design & skilful engineering that has created a timeless, deceptively simple space.

One of our favorite places to stay in Arrowtown, Tim is great, the accommodation is always top notch and it is centrally located to everything we love to do in the area. This is always our first choice when we are headed to Arrowtown/Queenstown. We love it here!

Our room was amazing beyond words. The open plan bathroom with the modern bathtub alone is what made the experience such a luxurious one. The architectural design of the room was extremely well thought out, with sliding doors to give privacy when needed (E.g. closing up the bathroom, or hiding the kitchenette which was by the way very well stocked...

Had the most amazing time here. Location is fantastic with a stroll through the woods to the cute township. Wonderful award winning architect-designed boutique hotel. Cool layout with open plan bathroom. Tim is so kind makes you feel so welcome. Stayed in the Toi-toi suite with private deck overlooking the wilderness of the river reserve. Magic!

The rooms are luxurious an well equipped. The only downside was the absence of any information regarding services available, breakfast etc. Unlike every other place we have been in NZ we did not feel entirely welcome. Otherwise, nice surroundings and Arrow town was very quaint.

Louise, I am sorry you feel there was not enough information regarding services available in the suite. There is a black compendium in each suite which provides information for guests regarding many of the services and options available in-house. Each day we provide a breakfast menu detailing breakfast options available. It allows you to select the time you would like...
