“Lovely Stay”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

My Boyfriend and I stayed in the King Studio with Private Spa Bath in the Aline Lake Motor Lodge and loved every minute of our stay. It was a really relaxing Lodge with excellent facilities in the rooms. We loved the Spa bath and would definitely recommend booking one of these rooms. The room was extremely clean and well made and the kitchen was just right for cooking for the two of us. It had a small little court yard which was pleasant to sit out in. We will be going back here again, the staff were lovely, the bed was extremely comfortable and I just wish we had longer there.

Now i'm used to budget accommodation, so when my dad splurged for my birthday i wasn't saying no. I stayed here two nights, the 23-24 of august.

The room itself was exceptionally clean. Good kitchen facilities; a top burner and the microwave had a grill option, we had a spa bath and a shower. The alarm clock had radio and many tv channels to choose from including sky sports and movies.

It's on the same road as the shops only a 10 min walk down to them or 2 min drive. Like i said here, the only thing stopping me giving this place 5 stars is the view. We had one of the motel next to us, we could see right into their room as they could to ours. I'm a sucker for a view so this was a right shame but that is my only complaint.

Rooms are serviced daily so if you don't want this be sure to ask at check in. We surprised our poor cleaner when we popped home to change at about 11!

Although at about 2 in the morning we had a rude wake up when the people in the room next to us got home, they were drunk (from the rugby) and very loud. But you cant choose your guests.

Overall ratings:
Room cleanliness: 10/10
Room: 8/10
Bathroom: 9/10
Kitchen facilities: 8/10
Bed: 7/10 (torn cushion on night 1)
Spa bath: 8/10 (i recommend you take your own bubble bath as theirs doesn't bubble very much!)

Will happily stay here again.

Room Tip: We had room 15, very good.

As a regular visitor to Taupo, Alpine Lake Motor Lodge is my pick of accommodation and the standard is always excellent. The good location means its an easy flat walk to Taupo central. Rooms are always very clean and and there is plenty of space so that you feel comfortable. In winter the rooms are well heated and there is air conditioning for summer heat. Service is of a high standard; friendly and welcoming.

Excellent value for money and in good proximity to everything. The kitchen is well equipped so you can cook in the room if you wish to do so. The room was very clean, well presented with everything you could need. Spa bath is always a bonus when you are away for a romantic weekend! highly recommend this place for value for money and its spacious rooms!

We have stayed before and were pleased again with the room we had. They are always clean and the bathroom and kitchenette is modern. It is a 5 minute walk into town and to the Lake. The staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 1, and the external stairwell was outside the bedroom window so was a bit noisy with people coming back from dinner etc. The bedroom was very hot.
