Well situated motel, close to town centre with standard fittings. Laundry was well priced at $2 per load and $2 for 40mins drying. Happy to recommend this motel in it's price range. Playground was entertaining for kids from preschoolers to early teens.

Our playground is very popular and situated right beside the guest barbecue facilities so parents can sit and watch as the lids play if they wish. We are new owners but are endeavoring to keep the prices of rooms and amenities at the affordable level they are to enable families to enjoy a holiday that wont break the bank. Thank you.

If you want value for money and an enjoyable break stay at the Alpine View Motel in Te Anau. We enjoyed a 3 night stay in a spotless unit having been offered a couple of choices on arrival. Fabulous, friendly staff and amenities, including a gym! Set amongst manicured gardens and a stone's throw from the lake, shops, retaurants, etc. Will return! Ron and Joyce

This is a great place to stay in Te Anau. We did so a few years ago (to visit Milford Sound) and decided to return on this trip because we wanted to see Lake Manapouri which is close by. It's close to the waterfront of photogenic Lake Te Anau and within walking distance of the town centre.

Illeana is a most welcoming host for whom nothing is too much trouble, and quickly arranged for an upgrade when we found the room we'd reserved wasn't really what we wanted. The motel is well-appointed - guest laundry, internet access etc. - and the rooms clean and well maintained.

Self-catering is easy as shops are just around the corner.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Larger units offer plenty of room to spread out!

My wife and I stayed for two nights. We thought it was just perfect. Nice, big, extra clean rooms. Everything you could need. Great location for walking to town , or stroll along the lake. We will stay here again!!!

A little dated, but still good value for money. Quiet, enough space and we used their BBQ (in the rain). Easy to walk where you want to be. If you get what you pay for, this is better than you'd expect from the outside.

This motel is one street back from the lake which allows for a quiet stay. The outside area is large and very suitable for families. Although rooms are of an older era, they are large and clean.
Staff extremely helpful.
