Had a lovely stay here - the hosts were very helpful with all their local knowledge of the area including best attractions to visit and where is good for dine out. Would recommend the Alpin to friends and family.

Appart decent size, clean, hot tub outside. Not so good was that temperatures were in the high 80's and none of the air con units worked_one of the cleaning team said the owners will not have them repaired! Luckily the manager was good enough to find us fan for our room and she was very knowledgeable about the area. The... More

This was, without doubt, our WORST EVER Motel experience in New Zealand .. we arrived at this `pet friendly` Motel, on a booking and late in the afternoon, only to be told that all 4 `pet friendly` rooms were taken, such that we would not be able to stay. Neither of the counter assistants was in any way helpful or... More

Room was ok, nice and clean etc but was very hot at night( no air con or fans) and couldn't... More

Stayed here with my wife and 17month old. Room was a little small but ok. Room had most things we needed. Only draw back was despite having an Air Conditioning unit, it was covered and the remote was removed. It was very hot and hard to sleep. They did have fans available but not sure why the AC was not... More

We are a family of four, stayed at this motel for one night, we booked an apartment with two double beds, which is quite convenience facility for a family with two little children. The interesting thing that I found with some motel receptionist was, they did not show too much interests as I show up at the counter, when they... More

Front of house-Michelle was friendly. She gave us advice on the various tourist sites (as well as discounts). When we got to our room we were delightfully surprised as there was a separate living space (with 2 bed/couch like structures for our 2 boys), 2 t.vs and a little outdoor patio space with hot tub. The room was tidy and... More

The room was very clean although we had a leak from the fridge that seemed to have of been dealt with when I told the staff on duty! If I were to come back I would probably stay again. The spa was basic and outdoor play area quite outdated but as we didn't spend much time at the motel this... More

A nice stay, felt very welcomed by the lovely hosts. Will stay again, recommend for the single, business traveller who doesn't need all the bells and whistles, but simple with lovely outdoor spa bath. Not right in the main part of town, but a quick 2 min drive to city centre. Close to supermarket and petrol stations.
