Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had our wedding in the garden at Shades of Arrowtown. Frank & Brenda were superb hosts, nothing was too much trouble. All 11 units were filled with our guests who all commented on how clean the units were and so nice being only 2 minutes walk from the Main Street yet Shades was so quiet. Park like grounds , perfect hosts., attentive but not in your face. Would 100% recommend you stay here.

We have been going to Arrowtown for many years,usually staying out a bit from the centre, but this time wanted to be right there, and we were sure able to soak up the Arrowtown atmosphere at Shades. A walk along the gorgeous tree lined street of historic cottages brings you to the inviting entrance of Shades and their lavender garden. As far as motel's go, we couldn't fault it, and was immaculately clean, especially in the bathroom. We didn't need to be anywhere with breakfast included, as we sometimes tire of the same thing everyday, if you are staying in the same place for several days. What we found great, was that directly over the road is a place called Provisions that have excellent food to bring back for breakfast, or alternatively, sit in Provision's adorable garden and eat there. The owners of Shades were lovely and very helpful. Just a short 2 min walk down to a wonderful little pub called The Fork and Tap where you can watch the Arrowtown world go by! Can't wait until we are back there again and will definitely stay again at Shades.

Shades of Arrowtown, are beautifully maintained accommodation just a short walk from Arrowtowns main street. The owners are lovely, who make you feel at home. Arriving to a warm room with the electric blanket on was very welcoming after a long flight. Milk provided in a glass reusable bottle was a great touch.

This is such a quaint place to stay. The room we had was small- ish but adequate and very comfortable. It had everything we needed and we always appreciate the fridge, microwave, kettle, supplies and dishes/cutlery. It is located right at the edge of the town area so you can easily walk to eateries and bakeries, movie theatre and the walking pathways are easily accessible. Arrowtown is a quieter place to stay which was what we wanted. There are laundry facilities available if they are required and we found the staff very helpful and friendly. This is a great place to stay if you want to to day trips to places like Glenorchy.

Just came off another enjoyable stay at Shades of Arrow in late February at the onset of a 2+ week combined N and S island NZ trip. The park-like grounds are lovely and offer very easy walking access to downtown Arrowtown, Chinese Village as well as all restaurants and shops. The manager/hosts are welcoming and rooms were compact but comfy. GREAT tubular skylight in bathroom...gave me construction idea for home I am designing. Looking forward to again using Shades of Arrowtown as base for our next Arrowtown/Queenstown trip.

We keep returning to Shades of Arrowtown because it is just perfect for our needs. The cottage ( no. 10) was spacious, comfy couch, a place to hang clothes, a comfy king sized bed and the ensuite had a spa bath. 2 days after it snowed, we sat outside on the deck to enjoy the spring sunshine and then moved into the shade when it got too warm. Shades of Arrowtown is so well positioned, it makes walking to all the cafes and restaurants so easy. Brenda is an absolute sweetie. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Brenda

I stayed here just the one night on a cycling tour. It is a pretty little spot with nice rooms and lovely staff. The room is on the small side, but has a fridge, cooking facilities, plates and cutlery. The heating is good. My bed lamp did not work properly, but everything else was fine.

My Wife and I stayed at this motel for two nights to compete in the Motatapu sports events. It’s in a fantastic location, to many facilities that the town offers. We were warmly greeted by the owner/manager. The room had great ammenities, Set in fabulous grounds. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars that the town offers. We fully recommend for a short weekend stay or a longer stay at this great motel and Arrowtown.

Very comfortable motel unit that we needed after a day of cycling from Queenstown. Location was perfect which made for easy walking access to all town amenities.
Bed was comfortable and the unit for 2 people was set out in an interesting way with an internal bathroom.

Had no accommodation booked, just drove in and booked a room, very easy. Huge two bedroom w one large King bed and two single. Cooking facilities, laundry in complex and a super shower, flatscreen tv, everything was great. Location close to town and surrounded by lush green Sycamore and Hornbeam trees, loved it. Friendly staff, recommend to anyone passing through.
