Alpin Motel and Conference Centre
Ranked #38 of 92 Hotels in Rotorua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We recently stayed at the Alpin for three nights. The reception staff were very friendly and handy with recommendations for local attractions. The units are very warm and cosy (geo-thermally heated), very clean and tidy, and the cleaning staff were very good and friendly. The motel is very close to the Redwoods and the local MTB trails, and the blue lake is only a short drive away. The private hot tub was great. All in all, great value for money, we will stay here again.

Nice setting 2 kms from town centre so probably a bit quieter. About eight mins from Redwoods park and not much further from Blue Lake. The gentleman on reception could not have been more helpful.
We had our own private spa which was brilliant - I definitely recommend this especially at this time of the year.

We got this on a special deal [probably the time of year] which we thought was very reasonable especially having the spa pool. It was ideal for a short winter break.

Room Tip: As this is a motel rooms are fairly similar, all on ground level. Recommend your own spa.

Three families from all over converged on the Alpin. Nice to see renovated units since last visit. Stylish! Very clean and good beds. Special treat with each unit having a spa pool, grandkids and our kids all gave them a hammering. Pool was ideal for very cold days! Got lots of use. Welcoming and helpful reception. Our pick for a place to stay when we come back. Thanks.

We have a standard booking every six weeks to stay at the Alpin. We have tried 5 other options in Rotorua and this is by far the best, good value for money, nice comfortable beds, private hot tub, great location to forest, clean, hosts are very accommodating, pool and bbq is great after a long days riding. Perfect for mountain bikers.

The motel was clean and tidy but quite dated and in my opinion a 3 star motel but it is rated 4 star. The outdoor pool was good but the spa in the courtyard needs updating, has no bubbles and wasn't warm enough so ruined my night. The water didn't heat up that night and I was lucky to get up early the next morning to run the spa before the temperature dropped again.
I wouldn't stay there again, I am fussy, but thought the stay was pretty average.
The owners were friendly and polite, the beds were comfortable. There was free wifi, which was a highlight.
Also no dishwasher.

Room Tip: Choose a room near the bore, evidently they getter the hotter water!

This is a good family motel with good clean rooms and good comfortable beds. Having own spa pool really was good. Very suitable for families as children can sleep on the two sofa beds in lounge. Adequate kitchen facilities. Would definitely use this motel again. Friendly staff at reception.

Ended off my 10 day holiday at the alpin motel and can definitely say that it was my most enjoyable night's stay. Heating of the apartment was excellent. Hot water was good. Place was clean. Free unlimited wifi. Ample furniture to sit around or put bags on.

In short, I enjoyed my stay and would most certainly return if I have the chance to.
