I have stayed at the Golden Arrow many times and each time it is a great experience. I love that it is a green hotel, the staff is friendly and the rooms well appointed. It is in the center of the village so you can park your car and walk any where in town. The beach they have is amazing... More

Found this hotel on a third party booking site for a reduced rate. I used the hotel's chat feature and spoke with Claire to make sure my reservation went through, and to see if I could reserve an additional night. She was very friendly and was even able to give us the same rate as well as an upgrade! I... More

Stayed here to attend a conference. The checkin staff was extremely friendly and accommodating . We had a lakeside view room which has some pretty spectacular views. It's located in the center of town so there are a couple of restaurants, outlet stores , quaint shops , all within walking distance. Lastly, felt very safe walking around the area.

The golden arrow is great. Indoor pool, attached to restaurant, dance bar, coffee and kiche stores. Expensive but worth it if u want to be close to ice arena.
