We have just spent 2 magical nights at The Arrow Private Hotel in Arrowtown. The Hotel is wonderful - the rooms are super spacious, very stylish and are exceptionally well appointed. The bed in very comfortable and the bathroom was fantastic. Breakfast was delicious and was delivered daily through the secret cupboard which was a lovely touch. Tim is a...

Loved the location of the Arrow. We stayed here for our wedding anniversary escaping our own business for around 18 hours for a night without the children. We loved the modern chic with the outlook across the beautiful Autumn colours. I'm a bit of a herbal tea fan and it was never any trouble providing tea bags and making sure...

We had a wonderful stay at the Arrow. Tim was so accommodating to all our needs as my mum is a wheelchair user. We loved having a drink in the bar with the other guests, this made it feel even more friendly and welcoming. The rooms were stylish and comfortable and no request was too much. Tim even posted our...

My wife and i took a break over east from Christchurch and ended up staying here for a few nights. It was so relaxing and so worth it. If you wan't a quiet place to stay that is not too far away from Queenstown, this is the perfect getaway. We loved it so much we are hoping to stay again...

Wonderful, modern spacious apartment hotel. Tim the host goes the extra mile to assure your stay is unique and perfect. The setting is beautiful. Opening the curtains to look out on to a treelined valley is breathtaking. Location is very close to the quaint town centre. You follow the river to the historic Chinese settlement and voila you are there....

This is a very special place to stay - the best during our entire trip to NZ. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and stylish; the location is great for hiking and within easy reach of Arrowtown, but far enough away for peace and quiet. Tim was welcoming and helpful. Our breakfast (room delivered) was perfect.

This is by far one of the best inns at which I've stayed. Tim gets it - he knows what guests need/want and he delivers. The evening wine events were a perfect way to get to know him and his passion for the area. The 5 min walk to the town was a fun trek; Arrowtown is SO much better...

We were very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay here in Arrowtown. Many of our guests are now heading off on one or more of the treks of different durations and difficulty which are right here on our back doorstep. Keep us in mind for another visit one day!
