Staff are very friendly & accomodating. Liked that we had our room serviced as well. Our room was large & comfortable. Really enjoyed that we had a microwave & a stove. I didn't read my booking paperwork which said that cost would come from my Australian credit card. Close to everything.

We stayed here for 2 nights and liked it a lot!The rooms are very convenient. There is a lot of space inside and also a nice place to sit outside (2 chairs and a table in front of each room). We also liked the kitchenette/living room area inside, where we could relax in the evening with other couple travelling with us. There is also a shared laundry room available, but not free of charge (2 dollars for one washing as far as I remember). We also loved the location - 10 minutes walk to Lake Wanaka (some relax on the beach recommended!) and around 10 minutes drive to Roys Peak Track (a must see!) What we didn't like? Free WiFi is provided but with transfer limit - I guess it was 0.5 GB or 1.0 GB per person for whole stay (we stayed 2 nights, perhaps the limits are higher for

Great position close to town. As winter had reappeared the owner had put the heating on for us before we arrived so pleasantly warm. As others say a little tired but comfortable and well equipped for our one night stay. Did not make use of the gas barbecue, one for each room provided, but a good touch.

Stayed in unit 9 on 16 July and decided to leave next day. This motel unit was clean but very tired and furniture, curtains, etc, tatty. Owners defended the quality so I suspect other units are similar. Nice BBQs outside each unit. Owners and staff no doubt work hard and have pride in their business but recommend you do price/quality comparisons in Wanaka.

Response from Bridg58, Owner at Archway Motels & Chalets
Responded 12 Jan 2019
Clive, Thank you for your feedback but we are struggling to find any record of a booking or booking that belongs. or a situation where someone just stayed one night although booked for 4 nights. If it was Unit 9 you or the person booking received a best direct discounted direct rate that would be considerably represent good value for a big 2 bedroom apartment in Wanaka and if it was that room and it is fully furnished with Fridge/freezer, dishwasher & oven etc and it is one of our most well presented units- any net extra curtains get washed and/or replaced if damaged and the curtains are less than 5 years old.If indeed you did stay here we are sorry to hear these comments but it does not add up to any room ty. Sorry we cannot comment or help further. Best regards Bridgit & Paul Parker Wishing you a Happy New Year.

Take a night break at Wanaka, we stop at this motel. Still at walking distance even not in the mid town area, the location was OK. On the positive side : the room was clean with comfy beds, flat screen TV, clean bathroom, and the bonus was free BBQ facility so we can enjoy our delicious BBQ dinner. The only minor was the payment with credit card on the arrival date incurred surcharge so we chose payment with Eftpos instead which avoid any surcharge. Spa facility was not available when we stayed.
