We stayed at Alpin for 2 nights over Waitangi weekend with our 7 month old and it was great. The pool was clean with good shade and so refreshing. The room was very clean and we'll equipped (we cooked lamb chops/potato salad/cous cous with very little hastle ), beds were comfy and there was enough room in the bedroom to...

We stayed here for 2 nights with our family. There's 5 of us and there was plenty of room for all of us to be comfortable. The hot tub in our private courtyard was great, especially after the Tarawera 102km ultra marathon! The location was perfect for us as it was close to the Redwood forest. The little kitchen had...

We stayed here for 2 nights & received a very warm welcome. The accommodation was a little dated but clean and had everything we needed. The hot tub was a nice touch but we ended up not using it as we went to the Polynesian Spa. They recommended that we go to the local Maori village and it was brilliant!...

Great place and good location, friendly staff. Not a bad price for a room with a hot tub. Although our room had a small pest control problem... there where small cockroaches crawling on the kitchen sink.

We will request our housekeepers do a big clear for all rooms to ensure this kind of thing not happened again. Hopefully next time your will stay with us again. Thanks and best...

The great location and affordable family units, the private mineral spa outside the room filled at your leisure, the heated outdoor pool and bbq available for cooking family meals as well as the unpretentious atmosphere are all the reasons we really like this place and will continue to come back. Thankyou Michelle on reception for your welcoming and professional manner.

We really enjoyed our short stay here. It was a lovely room with it's own private spa. There was also a sauna and a small outdoor pool. The room was spacious with all we needed for our stay. The reception staff were very helpful and were able to give us tips for our onward journey. A very enjoyable stay. Thank...

Recently we traveled to Rotorua for holidays with friends. Booked 2 rooms at Alpin both rooms exceptional. Front Office was extremely helpful. Just a short distance to the Californian Redwoods and a short distance to the centre of town and the many tourist attractions. Would definitely stay longer if we had the time. The unit comprised large lounge room -...

We spent 8 nights at Alpin Motel so we could go MTB in the Whakarewarewa forest. The forest is basically just across the road. The room was comfortable with a fridge, 2 plate cooktop, microwave, kettle so it was possible to be self sufficient. It is also close to grocery shops and shopping centres, and a wild bean café about...

Spent the weekend there with friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was definitely good value for money, the staff were lovely and the fact that we each got our own private spa per room topped it off. It wasn't exactly on the glamorous side or anything but comfortable. It offered good coffee and tea and their bathroom was really good....
