You can't go wrong with staying at this great lodge, the owners Sue and Ron are exceptionally friendly and provide great service (from brochures, maps and travel advice, to internet access, milk and newspapers!). It's only a 5 minute walk to the main shops and lake, the rooms are new and have a modern decor and are very clean (we stayed in 3-4.5 star hotels across NZ and nothing compared to the cleanliness of the Alpine Lake Motor Lodge). We had an area outside with a table and chairs that's relatively private, but it also gives you the choice of having breakfast inside or outdoors.
The kitchenette provided everything we needed and more - cutlery, crockery, utensils, toaster, kettle, bar fridge (it feels like they almost thought of everything you might need while away!), the bathroom was excellent (shower, hairdryer, fog free mirror, heated towel rails) - especially the deluxe corner spa. The air-conditioning and heating were new and working well, as was the TV which included cable channels. We didn't experience the usual trouble with noise from your neighbours slamming doors and waking you up on holidays that we have in every hotel (the rooms seem to be insulated well). Whenever we do manage to get back to Taupo, we'll definitely be heading back to this lodge!
