The unit was spotlessly clean, but there were some odd elements. There was no handsoap or handtowel in the bathroom. There was a large, bizarre photo on the wall of a man with his nose pegged, and to get the room serviced would've cost $10 per day. (This wasn't an issue as we only stayed overnight, but would've been annoying... More

The door lock was loose and quite a bit of key jiggling and patience was needed to lock or unlock and get the key out. The kitchen light was not working but fortunately the owner's son solved that. We stayed three nights. Rooms were not serviced unless an additional $10.00 fee was paid. There was one measly bar of soap... More

My parents are staying at this motel. How can this even be called a motel? This place is disgusting! There was mould up the curtains, cobwebs all over the balcony. Even a 1 star rating is to high for this place. You get supplied with towels, but you have to wash them yourself if you want to use them again... More

Location was very good. We stayed for 3 nights and what a mistake this was. There is no room service for the extra 2 nights. We were given 1 small cake of soap to last the entire stay, no top up tea, etc. The wardrobe in the bedroom had a lot of mould, even on the spare pillows, etc. The... More

Very clean, Friendly owners, outdoor cooking area, the works! i would defiantly recommend Alpine View motel to anyone in the Te Anau area if they are after a room at a fair price. It may not be the most luxurious motel in Te Anau, but it is the best in terms of quality to cost. 11/10

We overnight at this Motel on our way to the Milford sounds. Let's be clear, this is not a 5 star hotel is a MOTEL. First of all, the owner is extremely nice and helpful, he gave us all kind of tips (when to leave the hotel in order to be on time at Milford, where to eat at Te... More

The facility is old and unappealing, the carpet and dishes were dirty. The management saves on every detail, e.g. little toilet paper and the liquid soap was mostly water. The bed was clean. Overall a tacky place that should charge half the price. The wifi was slow and intermittent, but that may have been due to issues in the wider... More

Very nice clean room with a fine lake view from a balcony. The street is very busy and tricky to cross if you want to walk somewhere, but the downtown is not far with lots of restaurants and activity. Free internet for only one device per person.
