We spent two nights at the Alpine View as part of an autumn break. We had enquired about the hotel's sister property but the owners very helpfully suggested we have a look at the (cheaper) Alpine View, not least at it has some bigger units and great facilities for kids (swings, slides, climbing fort etc.).
The Alpine View is about 4-mins easy walk from the centre of pretty Te Anau. Although the units are a little dated in terms of facilities and decor they're extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, warm and equipped with a large flat-screen TV - a boon when travelling with kids or if you just want a quiet night in front of the tele. The fully equipped kitchen was a bonus too, it being nice to indulge in some home cooked food after eating out quite a bit.
We loved Te Anau with its easy pace and outstanding scenery so we'll be going back, and we'll stay at the Alpine View when we do.
