This was a great place to stay and the owners were very friendly and hospitable, to the extent of which they helped us fix our flat tyre. The rooms were very tidy and clean, with a great amount of space. Thanks again!

We booked here because our favourite was fully booked. Adequate for an overnight stay, but wouldn't like to stay longer. Spacious room (although it was for a disabled person), a fair distance from the town centre and on the main road, so a little noisy. The manager was very friendly.

Room Tip: The further from the road the better.

Hi, Thank you for your helpful and nice comments. Since we have been at Alpine View we have done up the living /bedding areas with almost everything and we have started on the bathrooms so hopefully next time you come we will have done some more :). Regards Jenny

We stayed here overnight en route to Christchurch. Many of the other motels in Kaikoura were full so we had limited choice. The room was a good size but was a bit dated. The manager failed to mention when taking our booking that the room he assigned us had a railway line right behind it as we soon discovered with the thundering noise of passing trains and were indeed woken up by one just after 6 am! We have paid less for much better rooms in other parts of New Zealand.

Room Tip: Avoid booking a room at the rear of the property due to the proximity of the railway line.

A much larger than average room, spotlessly clean, well maintained and equipped. Extremely comfortable with a good kitchette. We would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: The larger apartment is worth the extra 10 nzd

The managers were extremely helpful and friendly and the motel unit was exceptionally clean and well appointed for a NZ motel
Lots of space even for the 3 of us
No one should criticize this motel as it is more than fair value and has everything one would need including free Internet

We made this stopover after driving from Nelson before going back to Christchurch. The place is very well maintained, the room was clean and comfortable. Very nice view of the alps from the backyard and from the roadside. Within walking distance to grocery shopping. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Beautiful scenery along the esplanade not far away. Owners were enhancing the place. We did have a good stay and rested well before heading home.
