Thank you for your very favourable review on our Motel, we are sorry that we neglected to inform you about the free WiFi, sometimes it just gets forgotten, although the information is in the room compendium for that very reason. Looking forward to seeing you again.

The units are large and spacious however they are very basic and hard to find. Arrowtown is not a great place for street signs so can be quite confusing for visitors. The shower was cold, it took about 5 minutes for the hot water to start flowing. And the sliding door kept coming off it tracks, a good place for...

Street signage is the responsibility of the QLDC and yes Arrowtown can be confusing for visitors unfortunately we are unable to influence the location or quantity of the street signs. Free maps are, however, available in the office. I'm not sure what was meant by "very basic" as all the units are provided with full kitchen including stove/range, fridge freezer,...

Quiet warm units with plenty space and within easy walking distance to the shops in Arrowtown. Our unit came with its own carport so plenty of off street parking. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

While the decor was a little dated and the pressure in the shower not quite as we'd like, it was a comfortable, clean and well appointed motel unit. The staff were welcoming and friendly. It was great to have a full size fridge with freezer as opposed to the usual "caravan" type fridge, and having a washing machine in the...

We spent 3 nights here and found it spacious, comfortable and quiet. Great traditional motel with everything you need in the kitchen, clean bathroom and comfy bed. Handy to Four Square and short walk to Arrowtown centre. Would certainly recommend.

We were so pleased to find this cosy motel after trying to get reasonable accommodation in Queenstown which is overpriced & unavailable. Arrowtown has such a relaxed, vibrant atmosphere without the hassles of Queenstown which is very close for a day visit to see its highlights. Sheelagh was very efficient, knowledgable & helpful. I gave it a 4 because the...

We booked this one nighter as we were travelling down to Queenstown. It was immaculately clean and very easy to find and check in. Sheelagh was very professional and friendly. Really recommend the place.

I have seen in an article that this motel has four and a half stars. It either needs a complete refurbishment or demolish and start again. I have been told the units are privately owned and a Manager is on site. She appears to work hard but owners do not want to spend money. A lingering smell, holes on the...
