Shades of Arrowtown

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2013

We were in a very good studio. The kitchen area was compact but had everything you needed. Very clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again. It is close to everything in Arrowtown. Only comment would be that the door of the fridge would be better if it opened the other way because of the amount of space.

People were super nice. Room was perfect for our needs, very clean and comfortable. Quiet area with absolutely beautiful gardens. Within walking distance to everything in Arrowtown. We highly recommend this Motel.

Extremely clean, tidy and comfortable, with shady, peaceful garden surroundings, very close to town centre - along with efficient, friendly and wonderfully helpful service (which in our case was to accommodate a special family surprise visit!) For value for money, I couldn't ask for a better venue than Shades of Arrowtown. Arrowtown itself is one of the loveliest little towns in NZ (as an ex-Southlander it's always been a favourite....). no tourist should miss Arrowtown, and should not be disappointed with this accommodation.

Room Tip: Just ask the managers to recommend the room(s) that would suit you best ! That's what we did a...

Stayed here for one night. It's very close to everything and it is just a stones throw from the main drag. Nice outdoor spaces to sit and it's all very calm and quiet. Rooms are okay too. All in all, it's a convenient place to stay and very relaxing.

Spent in all three nights. Stayed the first night and felt so welcome that we returned for a further two days. Arrowtown is delightful and we loved our stay. We explored and played golf. We can not say enough good things about Shades from the friendly welcome and very comfortable rooms. Tom and Lorica are wonderful hosts and added to our amazing stay. We look forward to returning and spending more time at Shades in the future and wish Tom and Lorica the very best for 2013.

Lovely, friendly management, gorgeous room - we stayed an extra night it was so good! We were intending on staying somewhere else, but the owner wasn't to be seen, so we cam across Shades and they were available and very welcoming - so it was an easy decision. Very pleased we found it!

We stayed during December, a really busy time and the owners were really accommodating. - We arrived early. Extremely clean, tidy well presented. Would definitely recommend as a beautiful relaxing place to stay.
