Had a long day and spent the night in sleepy Arrowtown. Not many choices and Settlers Cottage had better curb appeal so we stopped and decided to take a room for NZ150. 12 Oct 2016. Carl was our host and was a great guy. Helpful and available for assistance. It snowed a lot the night before and lots of downed...

We dropped in off chance to see if there was a vacant room. We were given a very warm welcome by Carl and we were able to stay in a lovely 2 bedroomed cottage which was also warm and welcoming and very clean with very comfortable cosy beds. Carl couldn't have been more helpful with checking the weather for us...

Stayed here for nearly a week. I will definitely recommend these cottages. Carl and Jane (owners) are warm and nice. They keep the place neat and tidy. The only improvement I would recommend is replenishing essentials in the room without guests having to ask for it. We kind of got tired of asking for bath soaps, coffees, sugar sachets etc.,...

Have stayed here a couple of times now but with new owners it has got better. The service on arrival was top notch & the room was really clean & tidy. It helps that the Motel is in a quiet place in town but is within easy walking distance from the town centre, only about 5 mins. Great place and...

This is a No 1 place of choice. There is nothing that could be better. The owner is a very nice man who is giving everything he has to make this a great place. The flowers everywhere is what just gives this place the thumbs up. I sat on the veranda drinking wine looking out and thinking YES this is...

This quaint motel is walking distance to Arrowtown centre and convenient for driving to Queenstown and further afield. The outdoor space/ decor is well maintained and welcoming, even if the indoors could do with some modernisation. Karl is a major bonus ... friendly, patient and very informative.

From the first contact to the final goodbye, there's no doubt that this motel stay has been by far one of the best I've ever stayed at. I fell in love with the decor - the loud carpet and wallpaper was fantastic! Hubby and the kids were greatful for the electric blankets! It was only a few minutes from town...

Welcomed by a very friendly owner... He showed us to our unit and told us of the township and where the best place was to get some dinner... We booked the one bedroom unit which was quaintly decorated in tasteful Arrowtown flavours. It was warm and VERY comfortable. We were so thankful of the electric blankets as the nights were...

Authentic old style rooms an easy walk from the centre of Arrowtown. The cottages are roomy and well equipped, nicely furnished and clean and comfortable. The only negative I would say is that this was the only accommodation on our 15 night stay that didnt offer at least some free wifi
