Really warm welcome, comfortable and very clean, great value for money and only a short stroll in to town. Close to supermarket and local restaurants. Recommended for a short stay. Good little motel! :-)

Stopped here on our way south, coming off the ferry. The manager was welcoming and friendly. Accommodation is modest but you can't beat the morning cuppa looking at the mountain and hearing the sea. Value for money and we will use this as our jump off into our next South Island trip

Older type motel. Clean and comfy though. 2 bedrooms and a lounge area. Really close to supermarket on the way into town. Close to the Whale Watch attraction. Although close to railway line very few trains so not an issue.

This motel is a little way out of town we liked the access to the beach and the closeness to the New World supermarket which had very good free WiFi to top up what you get at the motel. The reception was very friendly and staff helpful. It was clean and comfortable. The bathroom could do with a bit of...

Like most motels in NZ this one was really clean. The unit itself was modest in design and could have used an upgrade. It was cold when we visited and it was a little too chilly in the unit to use the shower. We did get a good night of sleep in comfortable beds. The kitchen setup was very usable....

If you are a light sleeper like I am it was very difficult as we were right beside the train tracks and there were three trains overnight better to choose something away from the trains. Motel itself was fine and comfortable well appointed.

We checked in to the Alpine View Motel late in the evening and got a very pleasant reception. The room was very well equipped and the bed extremely comfortable. Hosts very welcoming and got lots of good tips when we were checking out i.e. places to see and what not to miss. Would definitely recommend.

We spent one night here in December. The room was spacious, but somewhat dirty and the door was nearly broken. We were surprised that the lock even held, as it looked as it had seen the better days of its life already. Our unit was next to the railway, which was operational day and night. So it was little shaky...

Very clean and spacious studio (for 2). Everything we needed for a 4 night stay. Hosts very friendly and welcoming without being obtrusive. Would have liked an iron and ironing board in the room (was one in the laundry - the iron had definitely seen better days! - but one in the room would have been nicer).

We were traveling around the south island and stopped here while on the east coast. Clean and tidy with good facilities. Close to the beach. Staff were very accommodating to help us retrieve some items left behind. We would definitely stay again.
