Stayed 3 nights and loved the accommodation. Tony was very helpful and accommodating. Clean, comfortable and warm. Only a short walk to town. Our room had a queen size and single bed. Extra blankets, too. Thanks Tony

Tony was just fabulous - booked everything for us and gave us all the info we needed to make the most of our stay.

Our unit was of a very high standard, and great to be able to park right outside. Excellent value when compared with other accommodation in the town, and a very short walk from the centre. Also super to have free wifi which was reliable - one of few places we found this in our stay in NZ.

Awesome place to stay. Great family owned Motel. Please go and visit with Tony. The rooms are up to date, equip with a nice kitchenette, dining table, sitting area and patio. It was the best sleep I got during my whole New Zealand trip. He is a great man and very knowledgeable about the area. He is passionate about his Motel and it shows. He is a people person. I can't rave enough about this awesome kind man and family. They were just great. I really hope to stay in touch with them and wish them all the best. I hope he continues to hang on to this piece of property.

I must admit I was a little worried when I drove up to this motel as it looked fairly plain.But the rooms were great and the owner was genuine and nice. It's in a nice location (a short walk to the lake or the shops) and it's a perfect base for trips to Milford Sound (and much cheaper than the accommodation at MS).

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are closest to the road. Having said that, it's a quiet residential road.

We stayed 3 nights at the Alpenhorn Motel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our host Tony was a wealth of information and made us feel very, very welcome. Couldn't be more obliging.
While not a modern motel, The Alpenhorn has been refurbished inside and has large, freshly papered/painted rooms with separate kitchen and bathroom. Our room looked out onto some beautiful flowering rhododendrons with snow capped mountains as a backdrop. It didn't feel like a motel but more a home away from home.
It is also conveniently located only a short walk from town and lake. Best of all it was quiet!
We took advantage of the unlimited WiFi, laundry facilities and even watched Lord of the Rings on DVD from motel library..........................as you should when in NZ!
We stayed in more upmarket and modern motels on our NZ trip, but in all honesty I found The Alpenhorn the BEST of the lot! Thanks Tony.
