Can't fault this place really. Lovely and modern, heated tiles, spa bath, comfortable bedding. You can tell money has been invested into making this lodge comfortable - and it was well received not only by myself but by the other 5 travel companions too. The only bummer was there was no hot water for my evening or morning shower. There... More

Good size room, very clean and tidy. We only stayed one night but were impressed with the motel and the small courtyard area. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was close enough to town to walk to a restaurant. We were made to feel welcome and would stay here again.

Loved this place. Stayed 2 nights. Staff were helpful, the room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Bed big and comfy. Spa bath nice. Best part was the heated floors! It felt like luxury, I wish I could have these at home!

We stayed at the Alpine Lake over Anzac weekend. We had a ground floor room, which was tidy, clean and well appointed. The bathroom was modern, the spa bath a very relaxing treat. The kitchen had everything we needed. Our room was cleaned each day, with tea / coffee replenished etc. The location of the Alpine Lake was ideal, it... More

Needed a few fix ups. Toilet cover was falling off and the shower sprayed everywhere as the shower head had parts missing. View was pretty bad as it was backed on to houses. Only plus was the spa bath.

Good situation, close to centre but easy to exit Taupo as well. Plenty of space, clean and airy. Shower and bath both excellent. Only negative- we had a ground floor unit with courtyard. Fine, but the noise from the air con units on the wall made our evening meal a noisy one!

Stayed here for one night and immediately regretted not staying longer! The room was clean, the staff were friendly, and the bed was ridiculously comfortable. Would definitely stay there again, highly recommended!

This is a solid 4 star motel, which is very good value for money. Service is good. Rooms reasonable size, were clean & reasonably appointed. Units have small kitchenette with sink, microwave oven, fridge and stove top. Mine had large spa bath.
