Travellers' Choice
High in the Southern Alps, nestled amongst mountains and beech forest, is Arthur's Pass Village. A comfortable two hour drive from Christchurch, Arthur's Pass offers some of the best unspoilt hiking and scenery in New Zealand. The hiking/walking tracks vary from a one-hour walk up to the Punchbowl Falls, to a multi-day hike in the mountains.Arthur's Pass Alpine Motel, conveniently situated in the village, offers fantastic self contained Motel accommodation, complete with your own bathroom and kitchen. A recent upgrade has seen the installation of double glazed windows and doors to the majority of our units to increase warmth and decrease noise. We also offer free WIFI. Our warm, cosy cabins (some with gas fires) sleep 1-5 people. With a hotel and restaurant a short walk from our motel, it is the perfect location to base yourself for some leisurely walking and tramping, or a hike up to Avalanche Peak for a grand view of the Southern Alps. You can even meet some cheeky kea or listen to the kiwi call at night. Your hosts and owners, Pete and Fi Neale, have a wealth of knowledge about the area, having holidayed in the area for the past 40+ years.

We stayed in one of the Large Family Motel / Cabins, which had recently been upgraded including Double Glazing. Good Value for money. Arrived late & appreciated that the Gas Fire had been lit, so unit was nice & warm. Fiona was most helpful on where to go for an evening meal + local attractions. Would defitinetly stay again.

Perfect facility for couples. Brilliant hosts with a world of local knowledge and excellent communication. Firm comfortable bed (super important for us), great shower, towels etc and everything else we needed to keep warm, prepare/cook meals and a washing machine for all our dirty hiking clothes. We didn't want to leave!

Had a great new year's eve gathering at the Otira stagecoach hotel. The service was good and Lester made us feel very welcome and went the extra mile to accommodate us, thanks mate. We wish you well for the new year and recommend that travelers take the time to stop to have a look into the areas past which is well documented in the foyer.

Hi, Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to write a review, it was lovely. Being able to walk to the train and village centre is great as you really get to see and feel the awesomeness of the mountains that tower above the valley floor. Kind regards Fi and Pete
