Response from Peter N, Owner at Arthur's Pass Alpine MotelResponded yesterday

What a lovely long review of your stay with us. We enjoy sneaking away occasionally to the top of the Pass, it gets one of us out of cleaning for a while. Sighting Kea is not always a guarantee as their numbers are declining, so...More

Walked into my unit and felt at home. Cozy and comfortable. 15minutes from village centre. Wonderful hosts in Fi and Pete. Stayed for 3 nights, could have stayed longer. Great kitchen and bring food with you as eating places are limited in availability and qualityMore

Put this place on your itinerary. Cute little cottages with lovely staff/Owner. Rooms are older but duper comfy, clean and appointed. Short drive or walk to nearby "town". We ate in the only restaurant the Wobbly Kea. Food was okay, big meals so make sure...More

Hi, Thanks for staying with us and posting a review. Hopefully we told you about JC's track as a preferred option for the 5-10 minute walk into the centre of the Village. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you had fun on the rest...More

Nice clean and spacious unit - no complaint. Keep in mind that there is a train track that go between the pass between the coast. The train operates even at night. Regardless of where you stay in Arthur's Pass, you'll hear the train passing at...More
