Lovely looking hotel from the outside. Warm welcome. Very convenient to the beautiful village. But the decor in the room was very outdated. Clearly in need of an update. Uncomfortable, lumpy bed. Tiny "kitchenette". And if you're going to have a television in the room, perhaps provide one that doesn't need binoculars to view it with. Overall, somewhat disappointing for...

A comfy bed and decent shower in a charming motel done in early settler style with a lovely garden and 300 metres from the town centre Karl was a friendly and engaging host and even lent us pans to gave a go at gold panning. We had a spacious 1 bedroom unit. Would definitely stay here again, great value.

Had a long day and spent the night in sleepy Arrowtown. Not many choices and Settlers Cottage had better curb appeal so we stopped and decided to take a room for NZ150. 12 Oct 2016. Carl was our host and was a great guy. Helpful and available for assistance. It snowed a lot the night before and lots of downed...

We dropped in off chance to see if there was a vacant room. We were given a very warm welcome by Carl and we were able to stay in a lovely 2 bedroomed cottage which was also warm and welcoming and very clean with very comfortable cosy beds. Carl couldn't have been more helpful with checking the weather for us...

We stayed here for one night after a car club visit to Arrowtown and had a very pleasant time. The sign says "old world charm" and that's about right! The setting is lovely and the cottages are very well-presented. We had a one-bedroom cottage and had plenty of space to spread out. The motel is only a few minutes walk...

Stayed here for nearly a week. I will definitely recommend these cottages. Carl and Jane (owners) are warm and nice. They keep the place neat and tidy. The only improvement I would recommend is replenishing essentials in the room without guests having to ask for it. We kind of got tired of asking for bath soaps, coffees, sugar sachets etc.,...

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.
