Had a couple of nights here in April - would highly recommend, spacious units with 2 tv's (great if you have kids) ,huge bed, very well equipped and with your own spa bath in a private courtyard. Beautiful gardens to relax in and a super pool at just the right temperature. The lady on reception was so helpful and helped... More

Pleasantly surprised about everything to do with this Motel....I loved staying here, and for $90 per night for a spacious one bedroom apartment which was really comfortable and clean with a super king bed and a deep hot tub what an outstanding find....I would definitely most definitely recommend this place to anyone who was looking for accommodation in Rotorua

The receptionist gave us a large unit fully furnished, with a lounge where there were two sofa-cum-beds and a separate room with a king sized bed (although it was two beds put together) and both had separate flat screenTVs.The room had an additional heated spa at the rear and it was...

The motel is slightly tired & dated, but our bedroom was a good size & the kitchenette well-appointed. The swimming pool was lovely & warm & was a real treat after driving for several hours to get there. The motel could do with some modernisation & is a bit noisy as it is on a busy road, mind you, as... More

If you are spending a day or two in Rotorua exploring the thermal parks you can't go far wrong staying at the Alpin Motel. Clean, comfortable rooms with fridge, TV, microwave, coffee maker etc. The best part is after a day of trekking around looking at geysers you can come back and relax under the stars in your own outdoor...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights with family members from overseas. We booked 2 'apartments' on booking.com to stay at this motel. On arriving, we realised that the name was a bit over the top for the standard of accommodation provided. Our rooms 18 and 19 were exactly the same, yet one cost $80 per night more... More

The Motel name sounds good but it is a well worn very old fashioned motel. We were only staying one night so not a problem - reflected the fact it was the cheapest motel/hotel we used in NZ, suppose you get what you pay for.
