The Motel name sounds good but it is a well worn very old fashioned motel. We were only staying one night so not a problem - reflected the fact it was the cheapest motel/hotel we used in NZ, suppose you get what you pay for.

We stayed for 3 nights in this motel. It is situated in a quiet location and very convenient for the geothermal/Maori visitor centres. We really appreciated the continuous volcanic water for our own private hot tub in a little courtyard off the bedroom and the shared warm pool in the middle of the motel buildings--particularly welcome in the freezing winter...

I stayed here for 2 nights over the Auckland Ann weekend. Rooms are a little dated but reasonably priced. The front counter lady is very friendly and helpful. There’s no street noise, hot tub in private courtyard too. Everything was clean and tidy, and plenty of free internet which is rare these days. Would stay again

We stayed in Alpin Motel with our 3 kids (aged from 12 to 14) and the rooms are just perfect. It is located within walking distance from Te Puia, and it's a perfect base camp to explore the other attractions of the area. Rooms are very simple but fully equipped, clean, and managers are really welcoming, ready to help you...

The four of us stayed here, 2 teenagers and 2 adults. The teens had the sofa beds in the lounge and said the beds were OK. Probably not great for adults. Nice and clean rooms, serviced daily. Pool was great although could do with more regular cleaning. Some more maintenance is needed around the place like the pool area and...

I have stayed here a few times because I have found it good in the past. The things going for this motel are: spa tub, heated pool, quiet as away from main road, good sound insulation, pet friendly, free fast wifi. Perhaps it was just my room but there were a number of items wrong which points to poor maintenance...

A tidy, well-serviced motel in a easy to find and convenient area within Rotorua. As this was my first ever time staying in Rotorua for pleasure instead of work, it was nice to relax and enjoy the famous amenities on offer in the Rotorua area, and to do so from a good base like the Alpin. The hot tub was...

We stayed here as a group of three friends. The hotel was basic, but had everything we needed. The room was able to sleep 4, but two of those beds were "sofa beds" in the lounge, which could barely be classified as a bed. The spa outside was slightly strange - more like an outdoor bathtub, as you had to...
