Stay here at this motel for work on a very regular basis. Location is good, and the rooms are top notch! Ideal for the corporate traveller. Under floor heating in winter is a bonus. Just wish the air on units worked better

Thought our spa unit was just lovely. The big superking bed was so comfortable and the luxury bathroom even had a heated mirror! The whole end of the unit was glass with doors opening onto an outdoor area where we sat out and enjoyed the late summer sunshine. They have a massive parking area and even an adjacent vacant section where we were able to park our boat trailer. Will be bringing our boat back next summer and definitely staying here again.

This is my favourite motel on my monthly trips through the North Island. Sue and Ron have done a great job keeping up the excellent standards of cleanliness and service. If I want something faxed they will always do it for me at no charge. If they do not have a studio left for me then I get a free upgrade. I have recommended this place to other business travellers who have in turn thanked me for pointing them there as it is great value for Taupo.

We have stayed there before and were impressed. However this time we thought it was not as clean as in the past, floors, skirtings. Bathroom good, except for hard tired towels. Only two, no hand towel and tissue box almost empty. Curtains still looked good, but bed covering etc looked past their use by date. On the ground floor there is a small courtyard with table and chairs. Lovely except the little garden was full of cigarette ends. It is not a cheap motel so we hope ths review will bring about changes.

The local I-Site directed us to this motel which was not on the lakefront but was close to the shops and eating places. The young lady in the office gave us an upgrade to their newest unit which had great views looking towards the mountains. The furnishings were lovely, a triple sheeted king bed and a lounge area with a large plasma TV. It was so nice and quiet that we stayed an extra night.

Room Tip: Ask for the Mountain View Loft.

We recently stayed for a night at the Alpine Lake Motel. We felt that the room rate was over priced for what was offered. Although the self contained unit was tidy & clean, the furnishings and linen were tired and mismatched. The spare room had 3 single beds but no drawers, mirror or wardrobe. There was a large coffee table in the room but this was of no practical use whatsoever. It felt like a new house being renovated but with the old furniture being moved back in. Was disappointing given that the motel describes itself as a 'luxury' accommodation.
My partner noted when checking in, that you agree not to leave "any odourferous cooking smells" in your room. However the room we stayed in had no oven vent above the hob; just a small window next to it of which the small window blind had unfortunately collected grease residue from past guests.
On the plus side the bathroom was spacious. Also the lodge is located a short walking distance to town and to the lake
