Arthur's Pass Alpine Motel

Reviewed 5 December 2007

Stayed there 3 days during their typical wet, windy spring weather. The room was small and quite cold, especially the bathroom which was unheated and a somewhat recent add-on to the living room and bedroom, which themselves were joined from 2 separate rooms. Still, the kitchenette was well furnished and the room comfortable and cozy during the rains. The only restaurant in town is a quick 5 min. drive away. Wonderful hikes nearby too. The owner/manager is very helpful on what's around there. If you have an adventurous spirit, you'll have
a great time.

Reviewed 18 July 2007

It was very good value – but don’t expect all mod cons.

The location, on the edge of the village and a 5-10 minute walk to the Visitor Centre, store, café, etc, is good. Arthur’s Pass national
park is a great base for walking and touring in the area.

The resort seemed to be quite old, the furnishings and fixtures were mostly well used and you couldn’t accuse them of being fashionable! However – and this is what was important to us – they were all clean and the accommodation was well looked after.

The mixture of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery was somewhat eclectic
but there was enough to cook a full meal and more room to work in than most modern motel kitchens.

The heating (I doubt that you ever need aircon here!) though old, like everything else, worked well.

The host was friendly and extremely helpful and this combined with the general cleanliness and tidiness to more than make up for the somewhat dated and well used nature of most aspects of the accommodation.

An additional feature was complimentary wireless Internet access.

A comfortable two hour drive from Christchurch, Arthur's Pass offers some of the best unspoilt hiking and scenery in New Zealand.

A recent upgrade has seen the installation of double glazed windows and doors to the majority of our units to increase warmth and decrease noise. We also offer free WIFI.
