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.

On 29th January 2024 I booked two nights accommodation for 25th and 26th February 2024 on their own website and received a confirmation email. On 24th February I received a reservation reminder from them confirming all still booked for the next day. We turned up on 25th Feb to be told by the receptionist the booking had been cancelled. She couldn't tell me who cancelled it but it sure wasn't us. She kept going on about booking.com but it wasn't booked through them and she just wanted to get rid of me as soon as possible. She also had the audacity to try and put the blame on me saying I should have rung a couple of days before to confirm the booking. Why would I when I had received confirmation by email the previous day? Trying to find alternative accommodation is Arrowtown is near impossible as a walk in. I was going to let this slide but because I received an email from them asking how my stay was and to leave a review, rubbed salt into the wound, I decided to share my experience.

There was ample parking room, lavish décor, and a much-welcomed air conditioner. We had a private balcony area which was open when we arrived, so the room was pleasantly cool. Reception trusted us with the key to the laundry after hours. Everything felt spacious and a bit decadent, only partly because our previous stay was at a backpackers.

Absolutely lived this place. It was lovely and clean, had everything we needed. The room was large with a big TV on the wall with WiFi and apps so we were able to log onto our Netflix and other streaming channels we have. The bathroom was large and clean with lovely hand-wash, shower gel and shampoo supplied. The bed was comfortable which was a big thing for me. Outside was a table and 2 chairs along with a sun umbrella. It's approx 1.5kns from the main street so perfectly doable if you wanted to walk. Lovely and peaceful surroundings. The lady in the office was very good to deal with. Would definitely stay there again if ever we are back in Arrowtown.

It's located in a nice quiet suburb. Like the location. The apartment is a bit tight for 3 of us tho' it's a one bedroom. Limited parking. It's a first come first served basis. Overall not a bad place to stay if you want to be out of the queenstown busyness.

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to give us a review with regards to your stay. We are located in a quieter part of Arrowtown with a 15 min walk to the town centre. There is enough parking for 1 car per room and they are not allocated to the rooms, so you are able to park in any of the spots. I am sorry you found your room to be a bit tight for the 3 of you. Kind regards Catherine

Very quiet and meticulously maintained motel in a residential neighborhood of Arrowtown but only several minutes from city centre of Arrowtown and 20 minutes from the expense and congestion of Queenstown. For us, this site was the way to go and we are glad we chose this lodging. There were plenty of places to eat in Arrowtown, and still enjoy what there was to offer in the Queenstown region.

Hi timothyy554, Thanks for taking the time to give us a review with regards to your stay. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. Arrowtown is a 20 min drive away from Queenstown and allows for a much quieter and relaxing stay than in the Hussle and Bussle that Queenstown is. Arrowtown has a number of amazing Restaurants and Bars as well as breath taking walks and views. We would love to see you again in the future. Kind Regards Catherine

Very pleasant stay. The unit was very clean and well-appointed with plenty of towels and bedding. The unit was serviced every day except the last, with clean towels, face flannels and tea towels provide each day. Excellent shower. Free Wifi is provided although it did drop out frequently (perhaps due to all the other broadcast Wifi networks from the heat pumps)! Very helpful & pleasant hosts.

Thanks to my jet-lagged brain, I had booked the wrong date for the Arrowtown Motel. Normally, since it was clearly my mistake, I would have needed to pay the full amount for the night we did not even stay there, but the very kind people at Arrowtown Motel did not charge me. So, even though we never got to experience this Motel, since it was fully booked the night we did want it, I really appreciate the goodwill of the management!

Lower Hutt, New Zealand3 contributions
The 2room unit was clean, comfortable and spacious. Free mini toiletries were provided as well as the usual tea/coffee supplies which was nice. The bed and pillows were good, better than many other places we’ve stayed. The table moved easily due to the style it was made so our 5yo was constantly bumping. But it wasn’t a major and with lovely weather, we often sat outside anyway. The view from the balcony was beautiful. The team were friendly and very helpful, particularly with our washing. We’d pop it on in the morning and they would transfer to dryer for us and return to unit when done. The unit was closest to Adamson Drive with buses going through but is still very peaceful and a 2 min walk to the 4 square which is well equipped. Only a 5 min drive to Arrowtown City Centre and about 25 through to Queenstown itself. Look forward to returning!
