Walk to town, convenient and friendly

With upgraded rooms, Derek and the staff made this a pleasant place to stay once again. We return to Alpine for the convenience to town, friendly service and value for money.

I am very pleased with the staff, and the service

Pros: Everything
Cons: Keep the good work
Location: There're hips of activities, but I have done the Wanaka Cruise. and a lot of walking around Wanaka.
Very friendly, helpful and welcoming staff makes you to stay much longer. For me it was my first time to go to Wanaka, but in the near future I will stay much longer, and my accommodation is the Alpine Motel. Cheers.

great service

Pros: central to Wanaka shops, friendly staff, clean room.
Cons: the bed was a bit hard for my liking but ok
we arrived before check in time but we had to be at a wedding early. The manager of the Alpine motel was at lunch but came back straight away so that we could get in our room early!! Excellent.

Best motel we ever stayed in!

We only stopped for 1 nights. Was very surprised to see super clean and upgraded room with small kitchen appliances. Room was small but very comfortable with huge TV and good bathroom size. Managers are very nice people, helpful and friendly. We loved gas BBQ on the premises. All over we only have good memories from this place and definitely stop over here again.

Very friendly service and great playground

After arriving late we were very please to arrive and the children jumped out and loved the on site playground. Owner was very friendly and was able to help and offer suggestions for restaurants for us. The rooms are a little out dated but they are comfortable and hubby was extra pleased when he saw the size of the TV, being there was a big game that same night,

Perfect overnight stay for a ski day

Staff were extremely accommodating. For a very reasonable price as far as Wanaka goes in the ski season it can't be beaten. Will certainly be back.

Excellent service

Pros: Close to town.
Had a very comfortable night, but found the taxi services in Wanaka are not very responsive on a Sunday morning. The owner kindly ran me down to my function on the other side of town in the motel courtesy van and refused to take payment. A very nice touch - good southern hospitality.
