Reviewed January 9, 2012

Highly recommend Alton Lodge Motel. Not only is it spacious and tidy, it is among the tidiest motels that I have ever stayed at. Very highly commended. Although the decor is a little outdated, this motel has a peaceful homely atmosphere that allowed me to truly relax and enjoy my stay. This was the second time I have stayed at this motel and would definitely be staying again.

Stayed two nights recently in a studio unit and recommend Alton Lodge highly. Room was spacious, clean, and quiet, with a good shower and a very comfortable bed! Wifi worked well which, if you've been on the road much in NZ, you know is important. Good value for money. Excellent place, really enjoyed our stay here and our time in Whakatane.

This is the place to stay in Whakatane! If we're ever that way again it's where we'll definitely choose to stay.

After a very tiring day we arrived at Alton Lodge to be greeted with smiles, lollies and infinite genuine kindness.

Our unit was lovely and very quiet, clean, well equipped and beautifully spacious. The guest laundry was so handy, great parking and a swimming pool.

Within a short walk to Whakatane shopping centre.

I stayed at Alton Lodge for just a night because I arrived in Whakatane when several roads were closed due to flooding. The hosts of the lodge are an elder pair that care really good for their clients. The lodge provides a separate parking space for each living unit. I got a one bedroom unit equipped for four people. The style of the interior reminded me of the 1970s. But besides that it is quite ok. A sleepingromm is downstairs equipped with three sleeping surfaces. Beds are comfortable and allow for a good sleep. The flat screen TV is able to connect to several additional players, plugging on a notebook is also possible. The kitchen is fully equipped eith a fridge, an oven, a micro wave etc. The bathing room and toilet is very equipped spartanly but is sufficient for daily needs. For 2 NZD per day you may also get Wifi-access. The lodge is located close to the city center of Whakatane which makes it easy to reach shopping facilities and the beach by foot. Summarizing I'd say that the lodge looks kind of old fashioned but allows for a good stay. Nonetheless prices of more than 100 NZD is not that cheap, especially if you're on the road alone.

We stayed here with an group of family members ranging in age from 2 years to 83 years. We booked most of the rooms for two nights. Awesome service, very helpful and friendly. THe kids loved the heated pool and the stairs. Elder family loved the one level rooms. Had everything we needed.

This has to be the cleanest place I have ever stayed in!!
Had the right balance of being helpful without the in your face
Over the top helpfulness you get in some places.

Me, my wife and a very fussy 3yr old had a great time thank you.

Excellent value for money and we look forward to staying again.

Motel was fantastic. Pool facilities were great and the owners were friendly and couldn't do enough to help us from advising on local facilities to booking tourist trips etc, took a lot of the hassle out of our stay which was fantastic.
