“Clean but too expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2009

We stayed three nights at the Alpine view motel, with no view. We "enjoyed" the 60's atmosphere of the rooms. It was clean, but really too expensive for the minimum services that were offered :

- The customer had to make a special request to have the beds made. It's quite amazing for a room at 145 NZD/night.

- We also found curious the fact that the bathroom was not cleaned on a daily basis.

The welcome was friendly but they could make an effort to renovate the rooms that are really old-fashioned.
They should reduce the prices to maintain the comparison with other hotel rates.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2008

We spent two nights at the Alpine View Motel and yes there was a view of the snow covered mountains from our rooms.
The rooms were very comfortable and extremely clean. The service given was very friendly. Other tours can easily be booked at the front office. I warmly recommend this place.You can take your pet too!

  • Liked — Extremely clean and well thought out
  • Disliked — Lack of privacy when drapes open
  • Stayed November 2008, travelled with family
