We were on a business trip and 3 of us stayed here. Unfortunately the main living area was very cramped... bedrooms however were a good size. But the worst thing about our stay was how grubby the place was. The TV remote was sticky... the kitchen was grubby and fridge not clean... the toilet didn't look like it had been cleaned. We had one roll of toilet paper for 3 of us for 2 nights so had to ask for more. We saw the someone go into a room to clean with a bottle of spay and one rag. Can't imagine that hygienic at all...

First, let me start by saying Jack the owner is lovely. He pointed out the hot spots on a map as well as recommended local dining options for us, and even called us by our names when we went to visit him after checkin.

But we felt the 5 star reviews we read here were “bought”. When we saw the sign in our room that offered a gift for showing reception a 5 star TA review, we felt we’d been misguided.

The location wasn’t the 2 min walk to town that other reviews said - it’s at the top of a little hill at the far end of town, which after a week of hikes and biking is the last thing we wanted for our legs! There were other hotels/motels in the city centre that were a good location.

The room had a good sized kitchenette and utensils, had lots of TV channels and Netflix, and was renovated which was nice, but not even a bar of soap for the shower. Laundry was also out of operation due to Renos so went to the Caltex to do this.

As far as motels go, this was what you’d expect. But not the ‘hidden gem’ it was made out to be by other reviews. Guessing people wanted their free gift!

This lovely motels has been renovated recently and well equipped for all our needs. Netflix is a bonus and great hospitality from the host. The room is clean, decent in size and cozy. One of the best value motels we have stayed in and we will be back again. Thank you for the great stay!

This is my second visit to Archway Motels and I am very enjoy staying here. The owners has done a great job on refurbished the room. New carpet and new bathroom.

The heat pump was turned on before we arrived so the room was warm and cozy in a chilly night. Owner’s extra effort like putting towel on our wind screen was extremely helpful. Would always choose to stay here every time when we are in Wanaka.

Very friendly and helpful staff but motel units are tired and in need of renovation. Windows are metal framed and insecure and bathroom was of cheap quality with old fittings. Bed was comfortable and room had necessary amenities for a one night stay. We have been moving around South Island for the best part of a month and are therefore aware of what an average standard is. This motel does not reach that standard but I cannot fault the staff.
