Tony the owner couldn't have done more for us and made our trip a great one. Booked all our trips through him and he made it all very easy. Lovely room and great facilities. Quiet, warm and well equipped. Thoroughly recommend local glow worm caves and trip to Milford Sound from there.

Such a friendly host and great room. Located just back from the lake front it's only a minute's walk to shops and restaurants and beautiful lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back again.

Good location to explore Routeburn and Milford tracks, as well as the glowworm caves. Friendly hosts and helpful in recommending tours. Clean and spacious room with cooking facilities. Nice outdoor area with a big trampoline and parking lots are just outside the rooms.

Great little place to stay in Te Anau. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were provided with complimentary milk upon arrival, a very common thing in New Zealand. Our one bedroom apartment was clean, quiet, and comfortable. We had a small kitchenette with microwave for cooking basic meals. There is a grocery store nearby for snacks and meals.... More

This place is great, and so is Te Anau. The motel is small, but with lovely rooms, good wifi, an outdoor sitting area for each room, good beds, a satisfactory kitchen and nice indoor seats too. The lake is a short walk away and so is the town with a few reasonable restaurants. The staff are lovely, helpful and very... More

My husband and I wanted to experience Fiordland and Te Anau economically but didn't want to miss out on the glorious beauty and experiences. Staying at the Alpenhorn allowed us to enjoy our own breakfasts and pack lunches using our own kitchenette. Tony the owner was fantastic at suggesting tours to fit our schedule and hikes to match our timeframe... More

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
