This motel is on the main strip. It is easy to get to, but probably not a walkable distance from shops and eateries. The room was clean and well equipped. The bed was very, very comfortable. It's nice and quiet. The decor and layout is a little retro, but our room was so well maintained it it hard to fault...

The unit is very roomy and has everything we needed. It was notable for being one of the only motels on our high summer travel time to have an air conditioner. I found this made a big difference to the comfort level of trying to sleep at night. Owner was very understanding when I broke a hairdrier by mistake also....

My wife and I stayed at Alton Lodge whilst touring New Zealand. The check in was efficient and pleasant. A nice touch was the free carton of milk, with the choice of full fat or skimmed. The accommodation was fine for one night. There was a heated swimming pool on site. A little bit too far out of town to...

The owners were very welcoming and knowledgeable of places to eat. The room was ok however compared our accommodation in the previous town this was pricey. The location is good and is handy to some great walks along the Whakatane River. Would I stay here again, unsure, there are other options that I think I would consider first.

We recently spent a night in Whakatane at Alton Lodge. It is lovely and clean, our room was recently redecorated, and had good bathroom and mini kitchen. The breakfast was great value and the hosts were friendly and helpful. Convenient location & well priced. Recommended!

Having three kids is awesome, but it does make it challenging to get accommodation - usually two bedroom apartments sleep two per room so the last person has to make do with a fold-out couch. The two bedroom apartment here has a queen and a single in each bedroom; meaning everyone got a proper bed AND we could put the...

Good location, slightly tired but spotlessly clean rooms including a sparkling s/s bench and shower, lovely hostess, very helpful and returning left behind belongings back to us at no charge, free WiFi. Reasonable rates. Would certainly stay there again. Highly recommended.

My sister and I were travelling with our 91 year mother with limited sight, the lady at reception was so very accomodating in making sure we had a suitable unit to cater for her special needs. A very big thank from us all.

The best motel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious (some are split level) & very clean. The rooms are serviced everyday while the laid back attitude of the owners & staff gives you stress free accommodation. The motel is central to the shops either in Kope or Whakatane. The owners & staff are friendly & very helpful....

“We had a one bedroom apartment: the bedroom was downstairs with the bathroom up stairs. If you prefer the bathroom on the same floor as the bedroom you might want to go just for a room and not an apartment.”
