Alpin Motel and Conference Centre
Ranked #37 of 91 Hotels in Rotorua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2013

The Alpin Motel is one of my husband and my favourite motels to stay. From the individual plunge/spa pools in the courtyard of the unit to the full size heated swimming pool in the grounds available for all guests . You can actually have a holiday without leaving the complex. Great for a rest from busy lives

Room Tip: They all seem to be great the complex is off the Main Road in Rotorua so traffic noise is no problem...

We stayed for 2 nights in Mid March 2012. It was a good choice and suited us well.

The really good parts were the quality of the reception people, the main large heated pool, the personal spa pool attached to our room, and the almost complete absence of any traffic noise.

Although we did not use the Conference facility it did appear to be more than adequate for groups of maybe up to 30-50. The space outside the Conference area would be very useful on fine days. There is no restaurant but the recommendation to walk across the road to the Holiday Inn was a top recommendation.

It is a large Motel with probably as many as 40 units, an older Motel but very well maintained. The kitchen is small and adequate for 2 people. It had 2 hot plates, microwave, and utensils & cutlery for 3 people. Like many Motels the lighting inside the Unit was poor & difficult to read under.

Car parking was excellent, straight outside the Unit and under cover.

The personal heated spa being part of the Unit was really good but does take 30 mins to fill and cannot be filled after 9.30 p.m. I think. The main general heated pool is better and is available 24 hours a day.

Wireless Internet worked okay but the free amount of data is minimal - there is a cost above the free minimal allowance.

Room Tip: All Units appear to be the same.

Stayed for a week of mountain biking fun. short ride to entrance of the redwoods, good washdown facilities. Lockable bike storage on thier website turned out to be the pool courtyard at the back of the units, so not alot of room if you have more than one bike & had to lock to the wall . Also owners were away, the stand in people were good but didnt know alot about the trails & how to get there, ended up at the walkers visitor place the first day.
Unit was clean & good kitchen facilities (fridge, microwave & hob top). We had a unit at the front but not much traffic noise as bedroom at the back & 2 doors in between.
Hot tub good but not thermal spring water, they use a downhole heat exchanger. very eco for heating.
Pool nice & good that it is open 24hrs as nice in the cooler evening as too hot during the day. Not the cleanest but thats due to all the trees around it so cant really be helped.
Good yakatori bar in distinction hotel down the road & 5 min walk to the whakawera living village, deffo worth a visit if just for the hangi pies. About 40 min walk to town along 'motel road'.

Good place to stay if you want a weekend away with the family (and the dog). Good beds, nice and clean, you get your own outside tub to fill with lovely hot water and the Motel has a small heated pool for guests to swim in.
Lovely Owners, price-average NZ $ 145.00/ night for 3 adults and a dog.
Will be back next time we're going to Rotorua

I stayed at Alpin Lodge for the night of Saturday 9/3/13.
I do wish I had traveled Rotorua on Friday night instead & stayed another night.
I was greeted by a very friendly team John and Sandra who were very happy, smiling and welcoming and showed me to my room, with milk for tea/coffee.
On the way, John noticed that I enjoy mountain biking and told me of the local trails and tracks and of Alpin's full cleaning facilities available to clean my bike.
While at my room, I was offered a quick guided tour of the premises (including how the lighting system worked in conjunction with the key, the Sky TV set up & the in-room spa pool instructions) - and was then also shown access to the Spa/Sauna area & swimming pool.

The pool was a treat (I had a delicious swim on Sunday morning-early before leaving) - John showed me the Spa / Sauna instructions & advised that I "might need to book it, in case when I turned up there were others already in there ..." VERY funny! Made me laugh!

The rooms were perfectly clean and tidy and the bed was superbly comfortable.

I commented to John and Sandra, when leaving, that I had never had such a friendly team look after me (I travel a lot throughout NZ), and would be back, if only to see them.... It turns out they were helping out by "minding the store" but still, the Alpin Motel with this team running it was a real treat and I look forward to visiting again.

Room Tip: My room was on the side by the road - but there was NO road noise of any substance. Very quiet and p...
