Just a simple place. Has everything you need. We were given the wheelchair accessible unit so bathroom was very big also had a spa bath. Big wall mounted TV not only 3 channels. Good heating. Maybe $10-20 more than I'd liked to have paid.

Although the wifi was free we needed a password and neither of us and neither o us suceeded in... More

Great place to stay at. Very clean and had all that we needed for our stay. Nice and warm, quiet too. Nice to have comfortable chairs to lounge in, and I appreciated all the little extra touches too - plunger coffee, cookies & chocs :)

The staff at this place were very nice and able to answer questions thrown at them. The spas are quite nice as well, and the heaters warm up the room very quickly. Only stayed the one night - wish I could have stayed more. I would highly recommend this establishment.

Great motel, very friendly staff/ female owner. We called her at pm to inform that we are running late and will come around 11pm, she waited for us so we could check in and showed out 3 bedroom unit. We loved it, as it was big enough for 8 of us + a baby. It was very clean and tida... More

We stayed 3 nights at theYarrow before and after our trip to Stewart Island. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. Dropped and picked us up from the airport and looked after our rental car. The room was lovely and fresh, had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable. Thank you

Stayed just the one night - a lovely clean & quiet motel. Close to the centre of town and all main attractions without being on a busy street. Nice having a separate kitchen. Room was a little bit tight (we had a large double and a single bed) but otherwise good.

This unit was so well designed and with everything you could possibly want in the kitchen I could easily have stayed a week instead of just one night. The kitchen actually had a door so you could block out the fridge noise and the toilet was separate and inside the bathroom with both also having their own doors. Might be... More
