Whole group very happy with our stay. Great setting with mountain views from all rooms and a short (10min) walk into Arrowtown.

House well furnished and finished, and perfectly clean. Good sized rooms, plenty of closet and hanging space and clever layout: kitchen opens to deck and front living room can open to outside as well. Kitchen well equipped (plus washer and dryer in garage) and more nice touches: everything from the basic (plenty of spare towels) and beyond (outdoor furniture, a fire place and good TV with 5.1 surround sound system). Decent free wifi allowance with reasonable charges thereafter.

Shared facilities also excellent: a good gym, and 20m pool that one could actually swim laps in, plus a tennis court with good provided racquets and balls.

Finally, excellent hosts: friendly with good advice on local activities and operators, and quick to respond to questions and requests. When we come back to the area it will be here.

Fantastic option for Wedding Accommodation if you don't want to exchange a finger for staying at Millbrook.Stayed with two other couples and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us. Visited the lap pool on all three days to get the body temperature down as was magic weather in March when we were there. The apartment was very clean and tidy and would not hesitate in staying there again.

On arrival we had note and directions to our apartment. The apartment was very clean and well appointed kitchen and bathroom tastefully furnished and 5 minutes from the downtown area. A nice lap pool......unfortunately our stay was too short to make use of the pool. Views look across the valley to the mountains A very comfortable place for 2 couples.

This place is a home away from home. I've stayed here a few times just for this reason. The complex is located in the Butel Park residential estate. Some of the apartments are permanently occupied by owners. Depending on whether it is peak season or not, you have a choice of staying in 1,2 or 3 bedroom apartments. Bedrooms not used are locked. If booking a three bedroom apartment, other bedrooms are located on the second level. There are ensuite bathroom facilities upstairs for these bedrooms as well. I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which had an ensuite bathroom, plus there was another guest toilet located off a hallway.

There is a fully equipped kitchen (useful if you want to self cater) with breakfast bar and dining table. Doors open out onto a patio which has an outdoor table and chairs. There is a pull out pantry. The lounge room has gas fire heating - the floors are heated in the winter months. There is a huge wall mounted TV with a full range of Sky TV. None of the bedrooms have their own TV's. There is also a CD and DVD player. There are two large 3 seater lounge chairs, so plenty of room to spread out. The lounge room looks out to the Remarkables - such a fantastic view. Doors can open out - would be nice in summer months with the long daylight hours. If you drive, there is a garage with a remote controlled sliding door where you can park the car. There are laundry facilities in the garage including washing machine and dryer. The apartment wasn't fully serviced on a daily basis.

Internet access is tight -first 100 megabytes is free, then they charge 20 cents a megabyte.

There is also an indoor swimming pool, tennis court and small gym which can be accessed,

It is about a 20 minute drive out of Queenstown, just past Millbrook. Nice if you don't like the hustle and bustle of Queenstown. It's not far from Coronet Peak and its ski field and is set amidst rolling green countryside. You can explore the area around it on foot. It is about a 20 minute walk to Arrowtown - you can of course also drive there. There are many walks around here, including the Sawpit Gully walk, Macetown walk, walk along the Arrow River, Tobin Tack and there are some nice cafes and restaurants in Arrowtown as well. There is also a supermarket located in Arrowtown. Staying in this area in Autumn is magical - the golden and russett colours of the trees are stunning.

The place is managed by Scott and his wife Teresa, both friendly and down to earth, and more than happy to assist you if you need anything.

Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: It can be expensive staying here, but you can get good rates in the low season

This is luxury apartment style accommodation in a perfect, idyllic and peaceful setting. Every possible item you can need in the Apartment and gracious hosts and all at a reasonable price. We are used to staying at top end Broadbeach Queensland apartments and this rivals anything over there. A peaceful 10 minute walk into Arrowtown (do take the scenic route down by the river) where there are enough Cafe and dinner spots to suit all tastes (do try Saffron, not cheap, but superb food). Comfortable bed and a view to die for.

This is as good as it gets!

Thank you for your positive review. Where else can you stay as a couple with so much space?!!Much appreciated. Spread the word up in the Bay of Plenty that it is much more affordable to travel down to Arrowtown/Queenstown than it used to be. With cheap connections & direct flights from Auckland or even direct (quick stopover in Christchurch) from Rotorua with Air NZ it is very convenient. On top of this Jet Star is in the game from Auckland so prices very competitive between the 2 airlines.

Arrowfield Apartments and Arrowtown were ideal! Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The accommodations were top notch, the service unrivaled and the scenery, well breath taking. If I were developing a property Arrowfield could serve as a template. It was exactly as advertised and the pictures only begin to do it justice. From the outside the apartments, more like townhomes, look deceptively small. But once on the inside, you see they make most efficient use of space, so you are pleasantly surprised at how spacious, modern and well equipped the place is. Now this is an apartment, a home away from home! To Americans traveling to Queentown, book this place you won't regret it. We are use to excesses and this place gives you that in spades but at a reasonable price. All you need is contained within the unit, even a garage for your rental car or other vehicle. You can walk into Arrowtown and it is only 15 minute dive to the airport and a 20 minute drive to Queenstown. And the service, well remarkable. Our host was not only accessible but most accommodating, helpful and just plain nice, I tell you a little effort goes a long way. We felt at home from the moment we stepped on the property. in fact Arrowfield and Arrowtown sealed a return trip to New Zealand for us and we weren't even half way through our holiday to Australia and New Zealand. I could go on and on about this place but I think I conveyed all you need to know. The only recommendations are for the gym and heating. To the former, while there was sufficient equipment it was older and it may be time for an update. To the latter, there is no central heating/AC and so during warmer/colder months the place can get very hot/cold. We experienced the latter. Now that being said there were space heaters in each room and floor heating in the upstairs bathroom. Once we got this going it warmed up nicely. Outside of this don't make one change. And to our host family, thank you for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: These are split level townhomes so there is only one level. if you are not making use of all rooms w...

"Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you", What a wonderful stay the 4 of us had and our little dog, to find such luxury when travelling with a little dog. Hosts Scott and his wife where fabulous and so accomodating. Only wish we had had longer than just one night, we will be back.
