Booked on line to stay for a couple of days and extremely happy that I did. Checked in, and the Motel unit that they gave us was excellent. But no, they upgraded us to a larger family unit, why, I have no idea but I can tell you it was much appreciated. We were greeted by an extremely pleasant person, one I won't forget any time soon. Unit had a extra large television, which was great. Bathroom and shower looked like they had not long been renovated, Kitchen facilities were all correct and present, and the Bed was ultra comfy. All in all, an excellent choice of Motel for us. Our only regret is not using the Hot Tub. Would I recommend this Motel. HELL YES.

We had three nights in the Archway Motel. Our chalet offered roomy accommodation with a comfortable bed, separate shower & toilet, useful kitchenette. A laundry was available and successfully used. Car parking is adjacent to the chalet. A patio offers a pleasant area to eat outside. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

The rooms are newly refurbished. The one that I stayed was much larger than I expected. The location of the motel is very close to the town centre, I walked everywhere while in the town. It is 20 min drive to cardrona, ideal for a ski trip.

Although the staff were lovely, has all the facilities you need and has had some renovations, I feel it is over priced for the finish and presentation of the property. The grounds need a lot of tidying and the finish of the renovations need tidying (sloppy painting and silicone work). Hot tub's were a great addition with nice views.

If you are looking for a lovely stay in Wanaka - this is it. We did not have many expectations when we booked, as we booked this place mainly because it was very close to the lake and town. Little did we know this motel exceeded expectations. 1. The owners of this motel are amazing and so lovely (Thanks Jack!) 2. The rooms have everything you need - including a kitchen with every appliance and utensil, a large TV, a huge bed and so much more. It even has a clothes horse, which is super handy. 3. The spa pools - there are two private spa pools that you can pay a small $15 fee to use. The money is SO worth it as the spas are SUPER hot, have an amazing view and are Scandinavian style (wood burning). Quit romantic. 4. The location is the best in Wanaka - it is a 2 minute walk down into town and to the lake. We would recommend this motel to anyone and would definitely stay here again. Chelsea and Lloyd
