The hotel is well situated. Being walkable to Arrowtown along by the river. It's a short drive to Queenstown but wonderful to leave the hustle behind and stay in the tranquil place that is the Arrow Hotel.

The Arrow hotel is a good place to stay for peace & quiet with a cool, trendy vibe. Its only a short and scenic walk through some quaint woods to the beautiful and charming centre of Arrowtown. The positives are that the property is quiet, the suite was well appointed, the bathroom was quite luxurious and the host (Tim) tries...

Thanks for your feedback. It is appreciated. That is a great suggestion re the breakfast menu and one I had been considering. That menu will be in place this weekend and it should make it easier for guests to select their breakfast choices in the future.

We felt very privileged to be able to stay for 6 nights at this beautiful place and completely fell In love with Arrowtown. The location is perfect. Only a short walk through picture perfect green fields and forest, alongside a brook and the gorgeous NZ mountains surrounded by wild bunny's and wild flowers. The rooms are very comfortable with great...

We had the pleasure of a 2 night stay just before Christmas. My husband and I were travelling with our daughter and were blown away by The Arrow. Tim, the perfect host, had thought of everything . The upstairs/ downstairs rooms worked perfectly as each had their own entrance , with the option of using the internal stairs or locking...

I recently spent several nights at this little gem and it is probably the best boutique hotel I've stayed in anywhere in the world.

It was a genuine pleasure to have you come and stay. There are some great things to explore in our historic little town and we are pleased you enjoyed it. The museum is a great place to start finding out about Arrowtown and the surround. There is a lot of information on our 'golden' past and the geology of the...

The pictures do not do this quaint private hotel justice. While we knew we were in for a 5 star experience, it wasn't until we entered the room that we could appreciate the elevated style and we were so taken with all the amenities. From our tour of the room starting with the exterior textures that are the foundation of...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a business trip around the South Island. What a wonderful place to stay.

It was a pleasure to meet you both and I am so pleased you enjoyed the Hotel and some of the special places that Arrowtown has to offer our guests.

Thanks to Tim for a great 4 night stay. Love the contemporary modern room, great location & views from the very comfortable bed. Tim's hospitality gives guests the unique NZ small lodge experience, from breakfast delivered to the secret cupboard to welcome drinks before dinner at one of Arrowtown's several excellent restaurants. We would definitely return to The Arrow.

We just spent 4 nights at The Arrow and loved it. The view from the large windows in our room was beautiful, showcasing an abundance of trees and mountains. The room was large and well designed and the bathroom was also generous in size. The short walk into the main street of Arrowtown was like out of a fairy book,...
