When traveling, my partner and I enjoy meeting the locals as much as we like sightseeing and dining. We had a lovely time in Te Anau while staying at Alpenhorn, thanks to our hosts, Tony and Denise. Tony is very much a "salt of the earth" kind of gentleman, and it was interesting to talk with a Kiwi and to... More

Booking this place was a pleasure. Tony arranged all our trips for us in advance, met us on arrival and could not have been more helpful. It is ideally situated as a launch pad for the NZ Fjords. Pick ups for Doubtful Sound were at the gate. It is strolling distance from the centre of Te Anau. Very clean, spacious... More

I stayed here for the first and last time. I travel a great deal for work and I'm in Te Anau every 5 weeks. I had trouble finding some accommodation during a very busy time of the year and booked to stay here. Oh boy. Reception was staffed by a woman who was shouting at her small naked son about... More

Tony welcomed us in the Inn Alpenhorn in Te Anau in a very friendly way. The motel is quiet, has a laundry, room has a kitchen, which is quite useful, but nothing really fancy. The bed is however very soft so if you don't like it you better know it.

We stayed two nights and were made to feel very welcome by Tony. The room (4) was spacious and the kitchenette was very well equipped. The room had a patio door to the well kept garden outside where we had our own table and two chairs; it was lovely having drinks outside after a day of travelling and we also... More

We stayed only one night before our walk and were really happy with the unit. Clean, comfortable and a great size for a family. A fully equipped kitchen made meals simple too. Tony was very friendly and helpful with lots of suggestions on activities and organised bookings for us.

We stayed at the Alpenhorn for 4 nights, and don't have any complaints. It's close to town, but also not too close (around a 5-10min walk). We had Room #1, which was very spacious (more than enough for a couple), clean, and quiet. The bed was comfortable, and there was a small kitchenette that we didn't really use (too many... More

We stayed in Alpenhorn for one night. The host Tony was a nice man who was helpful in advising us. Rooms were quiet, comfortable and clean and well equipped. We slept very well and felt refreshed. WiFi was excellent and free. We had some problems with the TV viewing, however, I am sure that Tony would have been able to... More

We stayed in the family unit before and after the Kepler Track; the perfect place to come "home" to at the end - laundry, wifi, clean comfy beds and well equipped kitchen. Tony & his family were very helpful and friendly.
