NZ is full of fine small motels and motor lodges with new well kept rooms. The Golden View is not one of them. When you walk in you'll find that the sidewalks are old, cracked, and falling apart. The gardens have seen much better days. The room I was in was generously sized, but very worn. The walls of the bathroom had holes and cracks and weren't exceptionally clean. The bed was OK, but the linens were obviously old. The Wi-Fi was $6/hour and exceptionally slow - it appeared to be throttled to 30kbs. I came away from my stay at the Golden View feeling like the owners were charging as much as the market would bear, but not investing anything back into their property.
If you want to save money and stay in the area, you'll probably get a better deal in nearby Queenstown. If you want to stay in Arrowtown, spend a few more dollars and stay someplace nicer.
