Motel Luxury in Taupo!Posted Jan 17, 2011
This brand new motel had every modern convenience and top quality appliances! We are a family of 5, and it is rare to find a motel room where 3 children can sleep in their own single beds (no roll-outs), and we could be in a separate room. Would DEFINITELY return!

Nothing specialPosted Dec 31, 2010
The hotel was not the one that I had expected to book. The picture looked like the one I had seen from the street but it was not the same one I wanted to stay at. This led me to disappointment from the start - not the hotel's fault. It was however overpriced for its location - and the upgrade was not worth the cost. The receptionist was a bit off-putting, seemed to me faking interest over our travels as of late. No interesting decor in the room and towels were too few for two guests. Nothing special about the whole thing.

Great home base in TaupoPosted Dec 15, 2010 on Hotels.com
Place was very clean and staff was very accommodating. The rooms were basically like apartments with full kitchens and even spa pools. they also have DVD's at the front desk that you can borrow for free.

This place is great. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a good location. The free internet is a plus.

Quiet and comfortable.Posted Nov 11, 2010 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located in a convenient location where it is an easy stroll in to town. While not what you would call a picturesque motel, it is clean and comfortable. We spent more than a week here and found it entirely suitable for our needs, being a good base for other activities and trips we took in the area.

The worst accomodation on our visit to New ZealnandPosted Feb 19, 2010
This accommodation a 10 minute walk from the lake in a busy residential area. The furniture was cheap and old, the room was nor properly cleaned and the place was generally noisy. It represented very poor value for money

Fantastic Stay and Friendliest PeoplePosted Jan 10, 2010
Taupo is a great city to visit in New Zealand and has a lot of fun outdoor activities available. We especially enjoyed that part of our trip because of our stay at the Alpine Lake Motor Lodge. The standard studio included a patio, kitchenette, big bathroom, TV with DVD player, and high speed Internet access. The managers were extremely helpful in helping us along our way with directions and planning activities.

Great room and good locationPosted Nov 13, 2008 on Hotels.com
Myself and the two others I travelled with really enjoyed this hotel- it was a great size, had a kitchenette that was well stocked, and a nice big bathtub. The location was good and we were easliy able to walk to the main shopping and restaurant areas.

Good placePosted Aug 27, 2008
There are many hotels within the Lake Taupo area, but this one stands out as being a very good value. The 1 bedroom apartment that is standard is very roomy, and is ideal for a small family.
