If it is a budget motel you are looking for, then look no further. The Alpine Motel is a 70s/80s construction with decor to suit. Even the walls are concrete block. The bathrooms are terrible with nowhere to put things around the sink and a shower curtain across what is a low pressure shower. The microwave is a genuine antique!
One thing I will say is it was quiet where we were, which was in one of the kitchenette studio units at the back. Apparently there is a modernisation programme but we saw no sign of that in those units.
The motel is well placed in relation to town facilities, with a short walk to the lake and central Wanaka, there is also plenty of easy parking.
