4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. The units are warm and comfortable and good value. The owners supplied towels to use at the hot pools and a newspaper in the morning. The motel is friendly and well positioned,we would certainly stay here again

Stayed only for one night, but had a good sleep. The motel owner was friendly. The room was clean and spacious, milk was prepared for my stay. The place was quiet. I took the room with a spa bath so had a comfortable bath after hours of driving :) generally a positive experience.

The motel was a short walk from thermal pools and shops. Clean with all the essentials. Nice sunny porch for afternoon sun. Towels were provided to take to thermal pools which was nice. Owners were very friendly and would help in any way they could. Free newspaper left on doorstep in morning. Bathroom was very compact but ok. Good value... More

This is quite an average sort of accommodation. We were greeted by the manager, though not the warmest of welcome & after informing us the rates, he told us that we could check out the other motels too. As if we didn't know ! But we had a choice & we decided to stay as we were quite tired after... More

Thank you Meng for your review. I am sorry if you felt the welcome was not as warm as you would have liked; maybe it was due to a language misunderstanding. When prospective guests drop in and query the price and show a reluctance I usually give them the option of checking other motel prices if they wish or haven't... More

A very clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped unit that suited our needs. Quiet location, very close to town centre and nearby forest walks. Owners/managers very friendly and helpful with any requests and enquiries. Would definitely stay there again.

Initially we booked only 2 nights at Alpine Garden Motel. After we experienced the good quality of the appartements and friendiness of the hosts we extended our stay there to 1 week.

It had been a while since we stayed at Alpine Garden ... I think we have seen at least three owners/managers come through over the years as our kids have grown and moved away. Current crop can be highly recommended, very affable and nothing is a problem. The units are clean and spacious and the full kitchen is a welcome... More

Hi Pete, Thank you for the review. It's always good to see our return guests and hope to see you in the future. Yes you're probably right about the chair. When you don't sit in them yourself you don't know these things are happening unless someone tells you. Thanks again. Cheers, Mark More

We stayed here for one night. The apartments are modern and well set up.
