I found this really useful article written on a website recently about high and low seasons in this area and why prices of hotels and motels are so different in Queenstown area to the rest of NZ. It explains about seasonal rates and the shortage of accommodation in the area and how it affects prices. Also warns tourists to take out travel insurance as most establishments will no longer refund your payment if you cancel your booking.

There is a playground close to the motel (behind the Four-Square supermarket) and we back onto a reserve so lots of running space. There is also a beautiful playground next to the local Fire Brigade right in the heart of Arrowtown. Of course the Arrow river is the perfect playground for children with rope swings, great swimming holes in summer, stones to throw and little beaches to swim and play in! Dudley's cottage at the Chinese Miners Village is also great for kids as they get to pan for gold (with guaranteed finds!). There is an outdoor public pool in Arrowtown (not heated) and an indoor one at the event Centre in Frankton.
