Good size room, very clean and tidy. We only stayed one night but were impressed with the motel and the small courtyard area. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was close enough to town to walk to a restaurant. We were made to feel welcome and would stay here again.

Loved this place. Stayed 2 nights. Staff were helpful, the room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Bed big and comfy. Spa bath nice. Best part was the heated floors! It felt like luxury, I wish I could have these at home!

We stayed at the Alpine Lake over Anzac weekend. We had a ground floor room, which was tidy, clean and well appointed. The bathroom was modern, the spa bath a very relaxing treat. The kitchen had everything we needed. Our room was cleaned each day, with tea / coffee replenished etc. The location of the Alpine Lake was ideal, it... More

Needed a few fix ups. Toilet cover was falling off and the shower sprayed everywhere as the shower head had parts missing. View was pretty bad as it was backed on to houses. Only plus was the spa bath.

Good situation, close to centre but easy to exit Taupo as well. Plenty of space, clean and airy. Shower and bath both excellent. Only negative- we had a ground floor unit with courtyard. Fine, but the noise from the air con units on the wall made our evening meal a noisy one!

A good clean motel. We had ground floor room which came with private courtroom. Bathroom came with spa bath and shower and was cleaned daily. Kitchen had everything needed fridge, microwave, two hobs. Free wi-fi which was useful. Only downside couple locked themselves out of room and spent till 3am shouting, swearing and climbing over fences. Didn't seem to be... More

Stayed here for one night and immediately regretted not staying longer! The room was clean, the staff were friendly, and the bed was ridiculously comfortable. Would definitely stay there again, highly recommended!

This is a solid 4 star motel, which is very good value for money. Service is good. Rooms reasonable size, were clean & reasonably appointed. Units have small kitchenette with sink, microwave oven, fridge and stove top. Mine had large spa bath.

Very very good accommodation clean well maintained nothing was true much trouble for ex Manx owner. I made observation first day no coat hangers in cupboard plus hose on shower was leaking. This was rectified within three hours. Five star just around corner good cafe for breakfast only small but ample seating in or out.

This is about our 6th stay at this motel so they're obviously doing something right!! It's always clean, beds comfy, and we like it cos we can walk to the lake for a swim and around the corner is a nice cafe or a short stroll to town. In unit 4 this time, sadly we had no internet for 2... More
