“Beautiful, relaxing home with gracious hosts”
Reviewed 1 March 2009

We stayed but one night at Anne and Arthur Gormack's Arrowtown Homestay while on a madcap exploration of South Island. Their home, which they designed and built, is lovely with an incredible view. The location is perfect for walking to town and back after dinner, and it is so quiet. We stayed in the spacious lower floor of their home which is essentially a separate two-bedroom, two-bath apartment. The bedroom was well appointed; the bed comfortable with quality linens. Magazines were placed on the nightstands as well as an emergency flashlight. The bathroom was sparkling clean with a wonderful shower, good towels and a towel warmer. A comfortable guest lounge with computer, t.v., dvd player, tea and coffee making supplies was inviting along with an outdoor guest sitting area, both of which overlooked the marvelous view. Anne offered the use of their pool, which looked extremely inviting as it was a hot day, but we were set on exploring Arrowtown and it's river walk/Chinese town memorial. Before we left for town, we washed a load of laundry and when we returned Anne had dried our clothes and set them in the lounge. She and Arthur were friendly and so helpful.

Having been to Queenstown on a previous trip and found it just abit too touristy we decided to base ourselves for a week in Arrowtown and we're so very glad we did. We stayed at Arrowtown Homestay with Anne and Arthur Gormack, who are the nicest, kindest warmest people it's possible to meet. We were made so welcome, their home was ours for the week, including the pool - the glass of wine by the pool in glorious sunshine made for a perfect memory.
We had one of two beautifully furnished ensuite rooms as well as a guest sittingroom and terrace shared by both rooms. The rooms and terrace looked over the Wakatipu Basin with the mountains beyond - the sunsets were amazing. Every morning we watched as hot air balloons soared into the sky, wonderful.
As well as providing a great breakfast (homemade muesli, bread and yoghurt with various fruits) Anne popped grapes into a basket for us every morning as well as bringing a lovely lemon cake to us one evening. After discussing the merits of making bread Anne whipped up foccacia for us (perfect for our lunches).
We simply couldn't have been made more welcome and long to go back.
Arrowtown is lovely - especially in the evening when the coaches have left and the restaurants (including Millbrook Resort) come into their own. It's also a great base for exploring the area, including Queenstown.
