“Very comfortable and pleasant stay”
Reviewed March 14, 2010

Views from the room lovely. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom modern and immaculately clean.The room we were in (The Cardrona room) had a lounge area and a small ktchenette including toaster and microwave. Almost a self catering little lodge. Had a bbq area outside on a deck area. Just devine. Lovely hosts and the breakfast which arrrived was fabuloous. If we go back to Wanaka, this is the B&B we will head for.

Hello Debbie, thank you for your review on Trip Advisor, it is very much appreciated. We are in the middle of painting the cottage, with Cardrona having been finished. So exciting times. Craig and I are pleased you enjoyed your stay, thank you again for your lovely comments.

We stayed here Labour weekend and had a tidy clean room with a comfortable bed and a great view.Only 3km from centre of Wanaka peaceful and relaxing. Liked the surrounding scenery and the weather was great so a plus there. Good price and friendly staff. Would like the mirror in lounge to be at a height to see into.

Stayed here as part of a 2-week tour round South Island of NZ; this was the best of the lot!

Found this motel on Google (after the first one I enquired with failed to reply to my enquiry for over 2 weeks). We were warmly welcomed, offered a choice of breakfasts (extra cost , but worth it as they are delivered to your door, and no more than you would pay in a good cafe), and shown round. The accommodation was a split-level bedroom/lounge with separate bathroom. The best part was the double-bath - takes 2 in comfort! The heating was effective even if a little difficult to work at first (and I am an H&V engineer!). Microwave and small cooker in the kitchen area, shared patio with the next room with a superb view over the adjacent valley and farmland. Liked it so much we are hoping to return here for longer on the next visit to NZ. Free wi-fi was the cherry on the cake, a lot of places in NZ charge you for that.

We stayed at Alpine View Lodge for five nights. It is in a wonderful location with great views. It was comfortable and well serviced. We never met Carl but Alison was a great host. The laundry service was excellent. We didn't make use of the outside facilities as it was very cold when we were there.
My only criticism's were that it was not as clean as I would have liked e.g. in one of the big cupboards there was a lot of dust and some dead insects, and there were a lot of crumbs under the small stove. We were in the 2 bedroomed lodge and it could have done with being re-decorated; it looked rather shabby.

Just a few minutes from Wanaka this is a quiet place with a beautiful garden. Our room was fresh, clean, tidy and spacious and we enjoyed having our own BBQ on the deck! The bed was comfortable and the service very friendly.

Alison and Carl are warm, friendly and helpful hosts. The accommodation is very clean and well furnished , it is quite and the view from our window was wonderful. There is also free internet access in Reception which is a must when travelling around New Zealand. We only stayed one night as we were on a planned tour of South Island but we wished we could have stayed longer as Wanaka is a terrific place.

I stayed here based on the previous tripadvisor.com reviews. I have to agree completely. Alison is a gem; the kind of host you feel is too sweet and kind to even be in the accommodation business. From arranging vegetarian versions of meals to be heated in the microwave at one's leisure, to arranging flights to Milford and the glaciers, Alison is a five star host and a great chef.

There are no washers/dryers in the units, but Alison will do your laundry for more than a fair price and I had forgotten how great air-dried clothes feel!

I came to Wanaka for a few days and stayed a month. It is where the Kiwis holiday, not Queenstown. The natural beauty, hiking trails, cycling and walking tracks, great restaurants, and beautiful lakefront make for a very friendly and welcoming holiday. The Alpine View Lodge is set just outside of town so the neighboring farms with their horses and sheep are set against a fantastic backdrop of the mountains. The units are very clean and well appointed.

Alpine View Lodge and Wanaka are amongst those rare places where weeks pass like days. I highly recommended both.
