“Great Accommodation in Te Anau”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We came into Te Anau as a base to visit Milford Sound. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful as to local attractions and local restaurants. Our room was a one-bedroom unit with a separate loung/dining area and kitchen. There was a spare bed in the lounge area which would be great for a family or two couples travelling together. Free internet was available. A guest laundry was available. The tariff was reasonably priced and although not right on the lake front, it was only one street back and therefore only a two minute walk.

We had a room upstairs in the main building which gave us a good view across the very pretty garden and onwards down towards the lake.The room itself was spacious,clean and comfortable and the decor pleasant.The owners were helpful & friendly. The laundry room was very useful when you have been travelling for a couple of weeks. Te Anau is a lovely town with plenty of restaurants,small shops & supermarkets. We used it as a base when we visited Milford Sound. An enjoyable stay.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Alpine Motel. Tony made us very welcome and it was a good base in Te Anau as we travelled up through the South Island. The room was very comfortable and well equipped with a view over the garden and a little patio. Very good value for money also. Def would recommend,

The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful.
For kids it's great, they have a play area at the back which our 4yo really enjoyed.
My main criticism is the view, there is none.
I would definitely recommend staying lakeside in Te Anau.
For some reason I thought we had booked a lakeside motel but I was wrong, my fault, not theirs.
The rooms are basic, a little dated, and quite small but useable.
Very clean and all the facilities you could need. Again, would like to see a white net as well as curtain to allow light to come in but not peering eyes - this is a recommendation for many Motels we stayed in this holiday.
Recommended? Yes, but not if you want to see the lake from your room.

Room Tip: Do you want Lake? If yes, go elsewhere, you are one block away from the lake.

Drove from queenstown and stayed here for one night. The room was large and divided into lounge and bed. Tv was in the lounge room so you cant watch it from bed. Very clean and had everything we needed. Guest laundry was very welcome indeed ( coins needed).

This motel is not 5 star but was very nice. It was the only motel we stayed at in Te Anau so no point of reference to compare versus the others. I doubt paying more for a lake view would be worth it. We stayed in the family rooms, which were almost like a chalet as there were brick walls between units. There is a nice grass area in front of the room with a picnic table for each unit and a playground in the back. There was tons of light in the day coming in. We had to ask for shampoo. not sure if it was standard. If not the owners could consider installing a shower jell dispenser.

This is the perfect place to recharge after coming off a track. I was in heaven. The owner is lovely and helpful and the room was very clean with leather furniture. The shower was hot and great water pressure. I would definitely stay here again. There are lovely mountian views. Excellent value for money. It's situated about a block from the lake but you don't need lake views here and those hotels are all over priced.
