My wife and I had never been to the South Island before and were expecting to enjoy our stay in Queenstown much more than tiny Arrowtown. We couldn't have been more wrong! Our stay at Arrowtown House was the highlight of the trip, and much more enjoyable than touristy Queenstown. Jeanette and Steve were excellent hosts and impeccable cooks. Do not miss the happy hour munchies or the fabulous breakfasts! Our room was spacious and quiet, with everything we needed including washer/dryer and great wine and snacks. And the town itself (a minute's walk away) is charming and fun. Also close to fantastic wineries and restaurants. We will be back next year with the whole family. Thanks Jeanette and Steve!!
