Ideal location, close to cafes, pubs & shops. So happy I chose Arrowtown rather than Queenstown. So much history to the town. Cottage neat, clean & private. Would liked to have more than just a microwave in the kitchen so we didn't have to eat out all the time. Charge applied for washer & dryer in laundry.

Hi Robin, Thank you for reviewing us, pleased you stayed with us here in Arrowtown. There are other units that have hotplates so you can stay in, next time just check you have one of these rooms so it makes it a little cheaper for you than going out all of the time. Thanks Lorica

I mulled over this decision, so maybe this will help others: Queenstown has a beautiful setting on gorgeous Lake Wakatipu, but it's very much a busy and crowded tourist town. Nothing wrong with that...but if you instead want a calm, lovely and local village setting to start and finish your day, I'd recommend Arrowtown as base for the area, and...

We thought the accommodation was great and perfect for our needs. So close to the beautiful historic town and the local pub close by for a lovely meal. It was a shame we could only stay for one night.

Beautiful little chalets in the heart of Arrowtown. Recently refurbished and provide good kitchen facilities and comfortably bed. It was really quiet despite being in the centre of town. The best part - the view from the verandah - heavenly in Autumn. Highly recommend and will be back.

Very good location a block away from town center. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very nice. We stayed during fall and the colors were absolutely gorgeous on the property and surrounding area. Would definitely recommend/stay again!

We have been lucky that Queenstown has been fully booked during summer season, so we booked this nice motel in Arrowtown, a very special city with historical houses. Continuing the main street through an alley of old trees, the motel appears set on a green ground with few units and hidden parking, quite untypical compared to regular motel setting. The...

I can recommend this place highly enough, beautiful gardens, so close to town center, very modern clean spacious room, and we were upgraded on arrival!! Bed was huge and so comfortable. It is just so quaint and peaceful here, a must when you visit Arrowtown.
