Alpine Lake Motor Lodge is an entirely typical NZ motel - clean, modern with a friendly and locally knowledgeable hands-on owner. The motel is in the mainly residential zone of one of Taupo’s main arteries, with many other motels as neighbours. It’s a ten-minute walk to the lakeshore and the shops. The rooms are arranged on two floors in a single wing. Bathrooms contain a spa bath and walk-in shower. There are adequate kitchen facilities - a two-hob plate, a microwave and sufficient pots, pans, cutlery and crockery. The bedroom was a decent size, the bed very comfy. There is minimal storage space and the lighting was exceptionally harsh - oddly, there were no bedside lights. There was a dining table and a separate desk for a laptop - very fast Internet - and even a little private garden patio for ground floor rooms. Road noise, since the motel is at right angles to the road, is not a problem, though an aircon fan right outside our sliding glass door was. Value, as ever in these places, is outstanding.
Taupo has several restaurants - we had a brilliant dinner at The Brantry on Rifle Range Road, a ten-minute walk away.
A motel that does exactly what it says on the tin.
