Located in the heart of the Arrowtown historic area, spacious and immaculately clean cottages decorated to a high standard with an old fashioned feel to the rooms. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in the two bedroom/two bathroom cottage. The motel is lovely and the cottage particularly so. Very roomy, nicely furnished and comfortable beds. We didn't stay long enough to enjoy the cottage to the full. Off road parking and a short walk to the centre of Arrowtown. There were a few loose ends that ought to have been attended...

Lovely location. Charming old fashioned complex. Spacious accomodation but minimal drawer space. Seems to be a common feature in NZ motels. No soap provided so far. Promised for later on. Sitting on the veranda with a coffee and watching the arriving guests reversing into garden ornaments.

Been here many times and love the stay every time, and made welcome by Pete and Michelle. Comfortable, just a few minutes walk to the village, laundry, quiet, great place for enjoying cool libations just outside the unit, perfik! Understand that is it being refurbished later this year.

Rolled up here unannounced after rejecting a nightmare booking we'd made in Quuenstown. It was a blessing in disguise. This place was exceptional. Very friendly staff. The owner was superb and got us sorted out for the next night. I don't think we'd have paid any attention to Arrowtown otherwise but it turned out a more relaxed town than Queenstown....

3 weary rugby travelers arrived and were made to feel most welcome. The old world charm from the very front fence all the way through to the cottages and the service are old world charm. A real treat in a fast paced and ever moving world. So relaxing, so peaceful and tranquil, it feels like you could rest up here...

I booked a chalet for one night and was pleasantly surprised for what I got for my money compared to some of the other nearby motels I have stayed in. The room had a very comfortable queen bed as well as a single bed. The room had a kitchenette, was tastefully decorated - although the four choices of pillows was...

This place is really charming, it has character, is quiet and has it's own kitchenette. We found the host and hostess most helpful and friendly. The only downfall was the bathroom, the shower leaks over the bathroom floor if not careful and the toilet very noisy. These are minor inconveniences compared to the absolute beauty and comfort of the place....

We loved our stay at the Settlers Cottage Motel Arrowtown, only a short drive away from the beautiful but touristy Queenstown and a short stroll to the lovely town centre of Arrowtown. This Motel is decorated with old world charm but has all the comforts and modern facilities required. The beds were very comfy and bed linen of high quality....

Delighted to stumble across this fantastic place to spend a couple of nights. Rates were very competitive, rooms were spacious and cosy with comfortable beds and plenty of darkness if required for those who need a good nights sleep. The host Peter was extremely helpful and couldn't have been any more welcoming to a couple of Aussies. In summary we...
