Alpin Motel and Conference Centre
Ranked #37 of 92 Hotels in Rotorua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Great accommodation. Plenty of space with separate living and bedroom area. Loved the hot tub and made good use of it at the end of a very busy day. Terrific hosts, friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The motel is easy to find and only minutes from the centre of town and the local tourist amenities. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment.

Thanks for staying.

Stayed here in early February as part of our family holiday and found this place very nice and quiet. Not too far away from the Rotorua city centre. Its quiet and clean, comfortable, the living area is seperated from the bedroom and the plunge pool is just outside the bedroom towards the back. The living area have 2 sofas and I presume that they could converted into beds but didn't try. There are LCD TV in the lounge and also one in the bedroom which is a bonus when you can't decide on the show you both want to watch. The owner of the motel was helpful in letting us know where we could shop or do. There is free wifi...sort of...you only get 2 days free or 50mb data. Which is not really a big deal since we're out most of the time. Will definitely come back for another stay.

Thanks for the positive comments. High definition TV is so good to watch and the new LG Tv's do a good job. Since your stay we have painted all the Courtyards which add to the ambience.
We would love to have you back. We do give more than 50 mb of data free but we only give it out in lots of 50mb to prevent gross downloading of movies etc.
Kind Regards

We stayed for one night as we were passing through Rotorua. The owners were lovely and very helpful.
The unit we stayed in had a seperate bedroom and living area and the hot pool was fantastic!
There was everything you could need or would expect in a motel room.

Room Tip: Book a unit away from the road to minimise traffic noise

We stayed in room 37 it was very roomy with separate bedroom and bathroom and plunge pool, 2 LCD tvs and a small kitchenette. I really liked my stay here everything was perfect except for the dragon lady at reception. A smile and friendly demeanor helps make a good impression with guests! Also the two single beds used as day beds/couches needed more pillows but no complaints otherwise. Really close to thermal village. So much todo in Rotorua. Try The Squeeze thermal waterfall jet boat trip and H2OGO!

We stayed at the Alpin Motel for five nights during our tour of New Zealand. The owners Steve and Gillian where lovely people.. the room was the best we have stayed in during our 6 week tour. It was very comfortable spotless well serviced. The pool was warm adn very clean. We where advised on our trips out and welcomed back each time. Nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you Steve and Gillian for making our stay in Rotorua so memorable

The town of Rotorua has many, many places to stay. We just wanted a clean, quiet place to get a good night's sleep. The Alpin Motel did this just fine.

Our room was large, with a queen-size bed in a separate room from the living room and kitchen area. Everything was clean and neat. The furniture was not fancy and there were a few dings in some pieces but everything worked just fine. The kitchen area was small but included a 2-burner hotplate, microwave and refrigerator. The cupboards contained an adequate assortment of dishes to eat on. The table, really a counter attached to the wall, was rather small.

The separate bedroom was not real large. A very nice feature was that both it and the living room area had plenty of horizontal surfaces on which to lay suitcases. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were clean and fresh.

The bathroom was clean and all the fixtures worked well. The grout in the shower was a little stained. Our room had a separate spa outside accessible from the bedroom. It was in a small patio that really wasn't particularly attractive. We did not use it.

The unit was very quiet. Free wireless is available in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The window looked out onto the parking lot. We did not go into the pool area.

Altogether, the motel provided us with a good night's sleep in a clean, comfortable place. That's all we really wanted.

We just returned from an awesome long weekend away mountainbiking in Rotorua. Alpin Motel is a fantastic location for mountainbikers - just a short ride down the road into Whakarewarewa Forest and the trails are at your doorstep.

Steve and Gillian showed us great kiwi hospitality and Steve is a wealth of information on mountain-biking in the area and knows all the trails.

The motel unit was clean and tidy, had a kitchenette and nice courtyard out the back of the unit with hot tub. The communal garden/bbq/pool area out the back is also a really nice spot to chill out after a hard day's biking. Bike washing facilities available also.

Will definitely be back again, cheers Steve & Gillian for your kind hospitality. J&H
