Archway Motels in Wanaka, New Zealand
Archway offers a quiet, sheltered and sunny location, conveniently set back from SH 84/6 coming into Wanaka from the West Coast, Cromwell, Christchurch, Dunedin or Queenstown. We are just 2 to 5 minutes walk to the golf course, cinema, shops, restaurants and lake. More importantly we are not quite "downtown" where the majority of bustle from bars, people and traffic noise occurs.
How to Find Us
From the north and east entrance: turn off to the right onto Hedditch Street, opposite the DOC Visitors Centre on SH 84. You will also see the Blue Motel directional arrow signage.
From the south or west approach (Queenstown or Te Anau): you will be coming in via SH 89 over the Crown Range Pass and Cardrona. Come through the town past the lake and up Ardmore Street until you pass the Caltex. 250 metres north you will turn left onto Hedditch Street (opposite DOC).
