“The perfect place to stay”
Reviewed May 15, 2011

On our first visit to the South Island of New Zealand,we were looking for quiet, clean accommodation with comfortable beds,handy location in the area and mountain/lake views would be a bonus. At Alpine View Lodge we found everything we could wish for and the owners,Michele and Craig,were very welcoming and friendly with helpful information about the local area including restaurants for our two night stay.Internet access was also available.Even after we had moved further south,we contacted Michele for a further night's stay and she even provided us with an upgrade.If we ever go back to New Zealand,this place would be top of our list in the Wanaka area.

On arrival, we were warmly greeted by the owners, Michelle & Craig, who were very helpful with tips on what to do, where to eat etc.
We stayed in a king ensuite studio. The room looked very new, with a lovely modern bathroom & sliding doors from the main room which took you out to a lovely grassed area with seating. One thing we found (not negative-just an observation) is that the kitchenette area is a little small when you are trying to make yourself a basic breakfast of just toast/cereal.
It is also nice & quiet as it is away from any main road. It is a lovely property to stay at & I'd loved to have stayed a bit longer here as Wanaka has so much to offer & is very beautiful.

Thank you for your review, we do appreciate the time you took to do this. We agree the small kitchenette is a small issue but we are looking at improving it after the winter. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you back sometime in the future. The photos look great. Many thanks Michele

My wife and I stayed one night during a driving tour around the South Island. We booked this place after a careful search of options on the Web, and ended up very pleased. We had a compact but very well supplied 1-BR room and the big spa tub was a nice bonus. Bed was big but a little hard. A small sheep pasture out the back window was enjoyable to wake up to. Also, it's far enough out of Wanaka center to avoid all the town traffic and noise. Would be very happy to stay there again.

What a lovely find. Michelle and Craig so welcoming. Ensuite king studio was a fabulous cottage and so well equipped. Breakfast served in the room. Very quiet but also very near to Wanaka itself and various mountain walks. Would thoroughly recommend if visiting Wanaka.

Everything was perfect!
it was at the beginning a bit hard to find the right street because there were actually two streets of the same name...
Finally when we arrived, we had a warm welcome from Michele and showed us where we were going to spend the night. Cute cottage with spacious living room, all equiped.

That was perfect!

The accommodations were quite roomy, Craig and Michelle provided excellent service -- including breakfast delivered to our room. We enjoyed the outdoor spa tub each evening. Michelle gave us great advice on tramping in the area. Nice quiet area with beautiful mountain views, but only a few minutes' drive to town.

This place was great, away from the main tourist area. The room was big and comfortable with lots of amenities. The view out the back was great, mountains and greenery. The owners are wonderful people and we wish we could have stayed longer than one night.
