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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Enjoyed our stay in Wanaka, it's a lovely town and Archway Motel was close to the centre but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. Our room was an accessible room and the bathroom was fantastic with an excellent shower. The kitchen facilities were great too although we only used them to make breakfast, there was even a dishwasher. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. There was some building work going on while we were there but it didn't affect us at all and we had a great stay.

Perfect for a one night stay on our South Island tour. Motel was welcoming, well appointed and comfortable. Easy parking outside the unit, perfect for car travellers. Easy walk in to town to all of the amenities. Pretty busy in town due to the lead up to the Wanaka A&P show, but a good kiwi vibe

We stayed for three nights at the Archway Motel and we could not be happier with our stay. The accommodation is located only a short 5-10 minute walk from the town centre (up a bit of a hill on the way home). There is parking allocated for each motel unit which is very handy if you are touring around! The room itself was spacious and nicely updated, you could see the bones of the original motel however the bathroom and kitchen were modern with everything you'd expect in a motel room. The owners were friendly and knowledgeable and spent time going through the town map on arrival. The reception area had a large range of brochures available for the activities on offer in the region which was helpful to plan our stay.

From check-in with Mark to check-out, again with Mark, our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The accommodations, from the bed to the bath are excellent. Each night's sleep was uninterrupted and sound. The property is well located with convenient access to dining and shopping. A perfect stay!

The room is very nice and has absolutely everything you'd need. It's clean and well appointed, on the edge of the town, only a few minutes walk into Wanaka. We indulged in the hot tub, which was wonderful. Chris and Jackie are very welcoming and friendly

We had a lovely stay at Archways over the New Year period. Very clean rooms and they have everything you need in them. A great location and easy walking distance to restaurants and bars. The staff were super friendly and very accommodating. Would definitely stay again. 😊

Hosts are very friendly. The rooms are modern and spacious. The play area for the kids was a great bonus and they spent lots of time playing. Beds were comfortable. Location is great, easy walk for eateries on the waterfront. Would stay again. Highly recommended

I traveled with a group of 4 and we felt that this place was perfect for us! The accommodation was clean, had anything you could need, and was well located in Wānaka. Next time I am in town, I will be staying here! Everyone is extremely friendly and upon checkin we were given plenty of local recommendations. I highly recommend staying here, you won’t regret it!

Really friendly and helpful staff/owners. We stayed in an access studio. Really large and modern and clean. Just short walk to the lake. For region which is really expensive was decently priced for what you got. Would stay again if came back.
