The rooms are luxurious an well equipped. The only downside was the absence of any information regarding services available, breakfast etc. Unlike every other place we have been in NZ we did not feel entirely welcome. Otherwise, nice surroundings and Arrow town was very quaint.

TimHemingway, Owner at The Arrow Private Hotel, responded to this review

Louise, I am sorry you feel there was not enough information regarding services available in the suite. There is a black compendium in each suite which provides information for guests regarding many of the services and options available in-house. Each day we provide a breakfast menu detailing breakfast options available. It allows you to select the time you would like...

Our stay here was a wedding gift we received earlier this year. Turned out to be such a perfect gift - peaceful location, clean facilities and friendly staff. It was part of a package brought which included tickets to the lovely little theatre (as well as a cheeseboard and glass of wine), and dinner at a wonderful restaurant (the one...

Thanks for your feedback. It was great to have a group of fun loving couples enjoying their time here in Arrowtown. We are so fortunate to have many great golf courses so close.

Thanks for your review and great to have you come and stay. The walk along the stream and into Arrowtown is lovely now as the trees are breaking into blossom!

We had the pleasure of staying at The Arrow for 4 nights during summer. From the moment we arrived, Tim the host was very friendly and helpful with providing local advice such as restaurant recommendations. It's only a short leisurely stroll along the creek into town to enjoy some excellent dining options. The much busier Queenstown is only a 15-20...

We had a fabulous stay at The Arrow. The rooms are stunning, with wonderful views. I preferred staying in Arrowtown to Queenstown it is closer to all the skiing fields and the Restuarants are fabulous. The villiage is so quaint. I look forward to my next stay!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Arrow Private Hotel is an Arrowtown Boutique Hotel just five minutes walk from the centre of Arrowtown. With very contemporary design and styling, the Hotel recently won a prestigious architecture award and guests frequently comment on the attention to detail in the suites. In contrast, a historic stone cottage is the central meeting place at the Hotel. It is used as the reception area and as a house bar for evening refreshments and canapes. The roaring fire is very welcoming on a cold winters evening and many a tale has been told before guests walk into Arrowtown for their evening dinner. The Private Hotel is recognised one of the best Arrowtown B&B's. It operates more like a luxury lodge with each of the suites having its own private access and a hot cooked breakfast is delivered to each suite daily via a secret cupboard. With only 5 suites we are able to provide a very personal and private service . Adventures of all levels are not far away from the Hotel. Walking and cycling trails run right past the base of the Hotel which backs onto Coronet Peak Station. The Arrow Private Hotel is 20 minutes drive from the Coronet Peak ski field, from the Gibbston Wine region and from Queenstown. There are also 3 great golf courses within 5 minutes drive. ... more   less
