“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

Ended off my 10 day holiday at the alpin motel and can definitely say that it was my most enjoyable night's stay. Heating of the apartment was excellent. Hot water was good. Place was clean. Free unlimited wifi. Ample furniture to sit around or put bags on.

In short, I enjoyed my stay and would most certainly return if I have the chance to.

A very private motel on Sala Street, Rotorua. All units are 1 double bedroom with very large lounge and kitchenettes. Large screen TVs in both rooms. Uncovered but enclosed spa pool courtyard - note hot water for spa is available only between 7am - 10pm. Close to the Redwood Forest, but some distance from the city. We were here in winter and there was a problem with our central heating - not working in the bedroom and barely working in the lounge, but the helpful stand-in hosts reacted straight away and brought us a good electric heater which heated the bedroom nicely. We struggled to heat the lounge though with a small blow heater we found in the cupboard. Wouldn't let this put you off staying here, though, as I'm sure this is not a common occurrence. The units are slowly being refurbished with air-conditioning. An excellent motel with good hosts.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back away from the main road. Although all bedrooms are in the rear of the uni...

We booked a small conference with some fellow practitioners for a catch-up and we very pleased with the way we were looked after and the facilities.We walked around the corner en-masse to the Copthorne for the "Great Kiwi Buffet" and the next day finished the conf. in our roomy unit, then went to the Okareka Walkway Then Rail-cruising, all great examples of the huge variety available in Rotorua.

The Alpin is very close to the Te Puia thermal area with many of the rooms having hot water plunge pools. Our room was a one bedroom suite with complete kitchen that was just recently renovated. We wish we would have arranged our travels to stay there longer. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of Rotorua.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a plunge pool.

Excellent place to stay as close to Redwood forest and access to mountain bike trails. Can ride from motel to Redwoods. Good facilities and private outdoor plunge pool for each room is very nice. This was our third stay here.

We liked this motel for a whole bunch of reasons.
There were six of us staying for four nights in three units so price was a consideration, but we all thought that the units were competitively priced, another reason was the location, just out of town (but not too far), right next to Whakarewarewa and the other thermal attractions as well as supermarkets, liquor stores etc. just a short drive up Fenton St. Another was the self catering units which gave us the flexibility around meal times i.e. dine in or dine out and with six that could be quite costly, the private plunge pools by the rooms and the complex pool were also well used (every night and morning.)
Our host Michelle was excellent and gave us an insight to local attractions that was invaluable, and nothing was too much trouble for her. We loved the quiet too, and for quite a big complex with 40 units this was surprising, rooms and grounds were well presented and clean and all the staff were pleasant and welcoming. We would definitely stay again.
