Quiet, clean and comfortable rooms that are well maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff that make you feel welcome. About a 15 minute walk to the centre of Taupo allowing access to shopping and many decent restaurants.

The place was clean and the facilities adequate for a brief stay but let down by the quality of certain items: The bed was cheap, the ironing board was cheap, the kettle was cheap which was a shame really because it let the whole place down. Customers appreciate quality so why not reinvest some of the profits to raise the...

Just spent a week away and Taupo was the last stop on way home. Alpine Lake Lodge was by far the best place we stayed, but stayed there the least amount of time. It was quiet, very central, comfortable, private, and operated by very friendly and helpful staff. What more is there to say, except I will be back

Stayed here over the long weekend for the Taupo concert. Four friends staying in a family suite. It was just what we needed. Our room was clean and quiet and had everything we needed. Didn't like the film over the windows, but can understand that it gives the unit below some privacy, just made our room feel enclosed. Location was...

This is the 2nd time staying at this hotel. The first time was in 2011. The motel is a modern complex, not too far from Taupo's center as well as walking distance to the lake. While the rooms are cleaned daily, I found the corridors in need of thorough cleaning and maintained more frequently.

Each room is virtually a self contained apartment. The layout of each apartment is great. With a separate bedroom (with mini tv), lounge, kitchen with all the basic appliances and utensils and bathroom (with large spa) plus your own little outdoor area and outdoor furniture (with BBQ). If I could recommend any improvements it would be a more comfortable couch...

Walking distance to the shops, this place was great after a long day of driving. Tidy, clean and a good size room. Staff were friendly and relaxed. The only down side was that the water pressure in the shower was not the best. This may be our new go-to when we stay in Taupo.

2 days at the Alpine Lake Motor Lodge. Family room well furnished (1 queen + 1 room with 3 singles for our 3 kids). Clean, confortable and practical. In addition one of our kid got sick on Sunday.... The information desk helps us to find quickly a doctor -> this justify a 5 stars.

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...
