We stayed at the Studio, and had a lovely time. The rooms were nice and with a kitchenette and fridge, shower had good pressure. The cedar hot tubs were amazing after a day spent in the snow, and felt too hot even in winter! As mentioned before, having a towel placed on the windscreen was a kind touch for those of us not used to the frosty mornings! The staff were very accommodating, and we appreciated the environmentally friendly packaging for single use toiletries provided. Would definitely recommend this place to 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.

We stayed here for one night while passing through wanaka. We spent 3 weeks travelling in NZ and staying in a variety of hotels/motels, unfortunately this was one of the lower quality places but still more expensive than most. Rooms really need renovated or price should be lowered. Would look for something else next time.

Dear Stephi, Thanks for the review and the feedback. Since your stay you'll be glad to hear we have undertaken some renovations and have completed the first round last month. We look forward to receiving you again in our newly refurbished chalets and apartments. Kind regards, Joey

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.
