Our booking elsewhere fell through as we were driving there during the busy summer season. We had to replan our trip and found this place on a fluke. The young man and woman who run it were very friendly and helpful. It's a plain-Jane motel on the side of the busy road, but we got their last room, a 2-bedroom...

Very warm welcome. Large room with kitchenette, fairly basic and needed a bit of sprucing up but comfortable bed so all ok for one night stay to break up long journey. Oamaru was disappointing, especially the seafront, not pretty industrial rail tracks mainly but worth the visit if you walk on past the harbour and wait for the blue penguins...

Good location for access to town, shops, local attractions. It's on the main road but I didn't notice much road noise. Good sized lounge and kitchen/dining area. There are plenty of local restaurants and takeaways nearby too.

We stayed at the Alpine Motels. The new owners were very friendly and helpful. The location is great where you are basically in town, so can walk to many places. Very tidy units - would definitely stay there again.

This was a great place to stay in Arthur's Pass. The room was giant with everything you could want and was nice and warm. The rooms are a bit old though generally well maintained, and we had the common NZ hotel problem of slow/cutting out internet, though for the location one really wouldn't expect blazing fast internet anyway, and it...

It's an older style motel but clean, very large with a great kitchen, wonderful if you are staying more than one night. It is on the main road but we didn't notice any road noise nor did we hear any trains. The only downside for us, being 2 older women, was that we had an upstairs room so had to...

Nice clean & tidy motel, good shower & adequate kitchen facilities, was warm & cosy with comfortable beds. We have stayed here a few times now & will definitely stay here again - good stopover on our way to Dunedin for the weekend to visit family.

What a gem we booked here.Older style motel but massive rooms with a proper kitchen with everything you could need for a stay. The kitchen was a great money saver instead of eating out all the time.Even though this motel is on the main road the windows are double glazed and we couldn't even hear the traffic noise.We were given...

Very comfortable spacious unit. We stayed in a unit which had recently been renovated to a very high standard. The kitchen was very well equipped and we'll set out and the lounge with the sun streaming in was an inviting area to relax in. We didn't even notice any road noise. Thanks to Di and Ray for a great stay....

I stayed for 2 nights at this motel for a meeting with a short business associate who lives nearby. Service at the Alpine is personalized, but more importantly, the rooms are clean, and there are no weird mildew smells that you will often get with similar types of motels. But remember it’s a motel and not the ``Ritz``, so manage...
