Interesting furniture arrangement we found pushing the single bed gave access to the queen bed. Warning don't turn the ventilator fan on in the toilet unless you want your neighbours to taste what came out of your sphincter! Didn't lay beds or change towels, did tend to open the windows for us a few times while we were out though,...

AlpineViewTeAnau, Owner at Alpine View Motel, responded to this review

Hi there, I am sorry your stay with us was less than satisfactory. We had only been in the motel as owners for two weeks when you stayed with us. Since then we have deep cleaned all the rooms, and are currently updating our furniture. We service all rooms with multi night stays and our current guests are responding well...

Chose this one based on cheap price so weren't expecting anything too fancy. Good location close to eats and shops. Smallish old style room and dated fittings. Room was clean enough and a separate charge for servicing wasn't unexpected and a great way to keep the base price down especially for a short stay. Kids enjoyed plenty of lawn space...

Had a three bedroom "apartment". Rooms were old and tired, kitchen area very much the same. We stayed for two nights. One window didn't lock which didn't give us a lot of confidence when leaving our things in there while we were out, No servicing, which we didn't know about, Internet was pathetic supposedly due to an influx of other...

The unit was spotlessly clean, but there were some odd elements. There was no handsoap or handtowel in the bathroom. There was a large, bizarre photo on the wall of a man with his nose pegged, and to get the room serviced would've cost $10 per day. (This wasn't an issue as we only stayed overnight, but would've been annoying...

The door lock was loose and quite a bit of key jiggling and patience was needed to lock or unlock and get the key out. The kitchen light was not working but fortunately the owner's son solved that. We stayed three nights. Rooms were not serviced unless an additional $10.00 fee was paid. There was one measly bar of soap...

My parents are staying at this motel. How can this even be called a motel? This place is disgusting! There was mould up the curtains, cobwebs all over the balcony. Even a 1 star rating is to high for this place. You get supplied with towels, but you have to wash them yourself if you want to use them again...

Location was very good. We stayed for 3 nights and what a mistake this was. There is no room service for the extra 2 nights. We were given 1 small cake of soap to last the entire stay, no top up tea, etc. The wardrobe in the bedroom had a lot of mould, even on the spare pillows, etc. The...

Very clean, Friendly owners, outdoor cooking area, the works! i would defiantly recommend Alpine View motel to anyone in the Te Anau area if they are after a room at a fair price. It may not be the most luxurious motel in Te Anau, but it is the best in terms of quality to cost. 11/10
