Wonderful location just minutes walk to the town centre and close to parks and the river. Despite being right in town, the outlook from the room was established garden with lovely large trees and the location was peaceful and quiet.
A leafy peaceful oasis within easy walking distance of Arrowtown main streets, restaurants etc. Comfortable and sparkling clean accommodation with Susannah always very helpful. Good laundry. Recommended.
Very central – couldn’t have been nearer. We were made very welcome by the owner, and shown our little studio, tucked away in the corner of a beautiful garden, filled with lavender and bees. ” The accommodation was beautifully appointed and tastefully furnished. I particularly liked the sh ower! Everything you need is close by, with a range of places to eat and things to see. This was a lovely place to stay.
Great place to stay. Would recommend to all and look forward to returning.
Staff was great, setting and location was superior! Beautiful surroundings and close to village/town center. A regular tourist mecca with all the benefits and problems.
Clean & tidy, close to town. Nice room and warm.
Very handy location. Within a stones throw to the wee township!
Excellent little self contained unit. Everything you could want for a short stay. Very close to everything in town.
Loved the peace and beauty of the location. Was nice to stay so near Queenstown but still away from the crowd and cramped parking spaces.
spacious, clean, walking to downtown, great value!
Beautiful location in the historic centre, individual units surrounded by lovely gardens. An easy walk to restaurants and the riverside walk. A friendly welcome enhanced our stay.
