“Superb accommodation in a lovely place”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Don't look anywhere else .. stay here with Michelle and Craig. It is a beautiful property .. we had a self contained room / kitchenette / bathroom unit with some private space looking out on a beautiful garden and the hills beyond .. like a motel you might say! But they also serve a tasty breakfast in a lovely room joined by the other guests. We really enjoyed sharing a couple of long breakfasts with other interesting guests .. and with Craig and Michelle. Nothing was too much trouble and some great tips included

Very good place to stay.

Check this place out for availability BEFORE booking elsewhere in Wanaka. If its free, book book book!!!

Small self accommodation units ranging in bedroom sizes. I was by myself & had the studio which was large, very comfortable and well kitted out. Kitchenette was a little small though more than adequate for just myself (or even couple). Some of the larger units have full kitchens. Studio also had private deck & garden with AMAZING views.

Bedding and general décor is very nice and homely.

There are a mix of unit sizes. Suitable for singles, couples or family's (depending on the unit)

Most units seemed semi-detached, though for instance mine was only joined to one other unit via the carport/garage so no noise issues at all. Hardly saw/heard anyone else over the 5 days.

Nice spa.

Short 2 mins drive from Wanaka. Situated in the countryside. Super relaxing and quiet.

Hosts were very keen to look after you.

Will 100% return on my next Wanaka ski trip. Considering the price, I'm not sure you can beat it elsewhere.

Room Tip: All look good. Depends how many bedrooms you need.

An enjoyable one night stay.Room is well furnished and pretty with comfy beds. Host is very friendly n hospitable. The breakfast is one of the highlights for us during the stay. Set in a peaceful environment,it is the perfect place to unwind. I like the high standard of cleanliness too. Can feed farm animals if u are keen.

My daughter and I were very pleased by the friendliness,warmth and helpfulness of Craig and Michelle.They gave us the choice of two very attractive rooms,offered us Christmas cake, gave us excellent advice on hikes and even offered to make dinner reservations for us.
We would have stayed longer if we had known how nice it would be.
Wanaka is a pretty gorgeous place too!
A definite recommend.

The Alpine View Lodge was absolutely wonderful! We booked a family studio on our stay. It has a beautiful scenery of the valleys and the sunset. I slept really well as the bed was nice and warm. The breakfast on the next morning was wonderful! Especially the fruit salad. The even let us feed the sheep they own....any time! It was a really good experience touching and feeding the sheep.

Beautiful room and hospitality. The location is a short drive from town, but quite and nice. the rooms were built for this purpose and are very comfortable, using the external hot tub was a nice perk...
The host is very nice and helpful, and serves a very nice breakfast to your room. if you like being a little out of town (5 min drive) its highly recommended.
