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.

We stayed for 3 nights in this motel. It is situated in a quiet location and very convenient for the geothermal/Maori visitor centres. We really appreciated the continuous volcanic water for our own private hot tub in a little courtyard off the bedroom and the shared warm pool in the middle of the motel buildings--particularly welcome in the freezing winter...

I stayed here for 2 nights over the Auckland Ann weekend. Rooms are a little dated but reasonably priced. The front counter lady is very friendly and helpful. There’s no street noise, hot tub in private courtyard too. Everything was clean and tidy, and plenty of free internet which is rare these days. Would stay again

We stayed in Alpin Motel with our 3 kids (aged from 12 to 14) and the rooms are just perfect. It is located within walking distance from Te Puia, and it's a perfect base camp to explore the other attractions of the area. Rooms are very simple but fully equipped, clean, and managers are really welcoming, ready to help you... More

The four of us stayed here, 2 teenagers and 2 adults. The teens had the sofa beds in the lounge and said the beds were OK. Probably not great for adults. Nice and clean rooms, serviced daily. Pool was great although could do with more regular cleaning. Some more maintenance is needed around the place like the pool area and... More

Not the Langham or 5 stars but great value for money! Excellent for family's with all amenities. Great service by managers and very clean so consider as a great place for family holidays in Rotorua. Pool, sauna, playground and a load of room to play.

I have stayed here a few times because I have found it good in the past. The things going for this motel are: spa tub, heated pool, quiet as away from main road, good sound insulation, pet friendly, free fast wifi. Perhaps it was just my room but there were a number of items wrong which points to poor maintenance... More

A tidy, well-serviced motel in a easy to find and convenient area within Rotorua. As this was my first ever time staying in Rotorua for pleasure instead of work, it was nice to relax and enjoy the famous amenities on offer in the Rotorua area, and to do so from a good base like the Alpin. The hot tub was... More
