Although a little pricey, motel was clean, comfortable, well equipped, in walking distance to town, with nice owners and a friendly cat. We also got 500mb of free data which would have been great had the Wifi key worked for us. However, would stay here again.

To upgrade all the units at once is not possible...

Great place to stay, within easy walking of all the attractions of lovely Wanaka. The owners know and love the area and are full of advice. The room was comfortable, well equipped and clean, there was a clean BBQ too, hoorah!! Would heartily recommend this accommodation.

Thank You Kathy for your constructive feedback we always take our guests views seriously. We are sorry to hear you found the bed dipping as you are the first to comment- but we appreciate it.

When planning our trip we tried to find accommodation in Queenstown but availability was nil. Found this spot instead and I'm so thrilled that we did. Lake Wanaka, 5 mins walk is stunning. Bars and eateries abound in lakefront locations. Really laid back feel to the place and nowhere near as busy as Queenstown Archway Motels provided a beautifully equipped...

Thank you John, We appreciate your comments. We are so pleased you made the most of Wanaka & staying at Archway Motel.
