My husband and I stayed at the Old Villa just after Christmas and the quality of the accommodation along with the hospitality of the hosts surpassed our expectations. Arch and June could not do enough for us. They treated us like family members and were so generous with their hospitality. The house is beautifully designed in ethnic planter style. It...

Electric blanket is provided for the double bed. We had a time to chit chat with the lovely owners and they gave us the nice homemade biscuits. And...

The hosts are extremely nice and friendly but not too...

This place is hidden gem, and we're so glad we stayed here. It was wonderful meeting June and Arch, who were the most warm and caring hosts we met during our stay in NZ. June's breakfast was the best we had in NZ, everything made from fresh vegetables plucked from her garden. The house is also close to some amazing...

Our 3 nights at the Old Villa in Arowtown were wonderful. June and Arch made us feel right at home greeting us warmly when we first arrived and when we returned at the end of each day. The Old Villa is quiet and relaxing yet only a few minutes walk from the shops and restaurants of this unique, lovely little...

We stayed for two nights whilst visiting the picturesque little township of Arrowtown. The town is a popular day trip from Queenstown but staying there enabled us to see it at a more relaxed pace. Our room (for three people) was beautifully decorated and furnished as was the whole property. Our hosts June and Archie made us feel more like...

We had a two night stay at the Old Villa and really enjoyed our breakfasts. The owners, Arch and June, were very helpful. We borrowed their gold panning equipment, something I've always wanted to try, had no success but had fun! Charming bedroom with a patio leading to the garden. Biscuits and tea making facilities. Easy walk to the town...

After much adventure, we booked 3 nights at the wonderful Old Villa. Arch & June are warm, gracious hosts who welcomed us on arrival with tea & yummy cake in their beautiful gardens.
