The room was clean and comfortable and included a kitchenette. It's a short walk to the lake or town center. Would stay there again if ever back to Taupo.

We loved this motel. Everything was so modern and spotlessly clean, and we were given vouchers for free WIFI and also were able to select some DVDs to watch from their library,. Loved having a private outdoor courtyard and being able to wander down to the shops and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again.

We spent 1 night at the Alpine Lake Motor Lodge and it was 1 night too many. We checked in at about 3 and were initially pleased with our choice. The room was clean and tidy as was the bathroom. There was plenty of space for both of us including a little outdoor area. When we returned that night one...

Stayed at Alpine Lake for one night with a booking made very last minute. We arrived late in the evening and was warmly greeted even though it was after normal office hours. The room felt brand new and was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Felt it was slightly expensive given the number of hotels in total in Taupo but we...

We stayed here 2 nights in November when we were doing the Taupo cycle race. It was a comfortable and clean motel room with a small kitchen area and shower and spa bath. The spa bath took a while to fill as the flow from the taps was slow so remember to put it on way in advance! It was...

Nice walk to town and not far from the lake. Studio room was clean and the spa bath a lovely touch. We were offered a lock up garage for our motorcycle which was unexpected but really appreciated. Would recommend to everyone.
