My wife and I stayed at th Alpine Lake for 2 nights mid March. Everything about the place was great (and that includes the owner who was very helpful). It is well situated with a 10 min. walk into Taupo town Centre and Lake Taupo.

The Lodge is a short-ish walk to/from Lake Taupo, giving that bit of exercise which could otherwise be neglected. It also means it's within easy reach of countless restaurants and cafes, making it an ideal location for visitors to the area. The lodge itself is well appointed with plenty of space, very clean, warm, an inside spa (which we didn't... More

Stayed here over the weekend Iron man was on, so paid top money. Executive spa suite a waste of money. $280 per night , all windows frosted, no outdoor area to sit, felt like a prison. Bedroom TV tiny attached to wall . Nice and clean but not executive by any stretch of the imagination.

Friendly helpful staff, spacious rooms, great central location, great value for money, plenty of parking. I liked the Eco enmities in rooms. I left a gold bracelet behind and staff went out of their way to return it to me.

Our one bedroom accommodation was lovely and clean and very spacious. The bedroom configuration (3 singles in the bedroom, 1 queen in the lounge) was perfect for our needs. The kids could go to bed while the adults sat up to watch TV. The aircon was a lifesaver with the heat of summer. Close to town and only a short... More

The motel was not far from town to drive from it took only a couple of minutes. The owners were very friendly and room was all clean and good value for money. Our stay here was very pleasant and would recommend this place for value for money. Only slight issue was with shower in our room with water going all... More

We stayed in a Studio room, on the first floor and for the 3 nights we were here it was a perfect size. The kitchen was well equipped for self catering and there were even toiletries supplied in the bathroom. The lodge is just 10 minutes walk from town and the lake. There are plenty of restaurants in town, equally... More

We stayed for 1 night in the spa room while passing through to a friend's wedding in Napier. They were very accommodating of the fact we would be arriving late. Much appreciated! The room was very modern, spacious and clean. Well set up with nice plunger coffee and milk provided. This is the second time i have stayed with Alpine... More

We stayed with Alpine Lake Lodge for only three nights in July and wished it could've been longer! It was like a home away from home... From the moment we got in contact with Barry and the team we felt welcomed and nothing was too much of a hassle. The apartment was very modern, new, clean and stylish. There were... More

I stayed for one night in July in an executive spa suite. The room was well set out and had everything that I needed. It was very tidy and clean. Water temperature and pressure was excellent. Friendly reception - I turned up at 1.45 with no issues. I would recommend.
