Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Once again. Fantastic!! Room was clean and modern and bed was sooooo comfortable. The room was so tastefully decorated and looked as if it had been staged by an interior designer. Could not fault it at all. Have stayed here before and will be booking our next stay here without question.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed for two nights on a recent holiday tour of the North Island and found the Alpine lodge to be a gem! We had a studio with mountain views which was large, well equipped and spotless. The views were great especially the sunsets. The location is within walking distance to the lake side and plenty of coffee shops, bars, restaurants/eateries and shops. About 5/10 minutes drive to Spa Thermal Park and the walk to Huka Falls. Check in to check out was seamless with such nice friendly people. Great value, great location and memorable stay! Thank you!

This was our second visit and is now our new favourite place to stay in Taupo. Always a friendly welcome from Stacey or Darrin, the queen studios are great for us, clean with nicely styled furnishings and artworks. Walkable to town. We also appreciate the EV charger.

Second stay at Alpine Lake Motor Lodge. Spotlessly clean and comfortable for a stop over. Has everything you need for a night or two and my favourite room (20) was specious and comfortable. Bed super comfy. The staff super friendly and can highly recommend.

Very comfortable stay for four nights in March 2024 in a downstairs studio with small courtyard. Excellent for a couple, not too far to walk to the business area of Taupo or the lake, and close to the local No 33 bus route which goes every two hours weekdays. The unit is very cosy inside despite some cool nights. Unfortunately the local supermarket on Spa Road that we have previously relied upon has closed, but Pac N Save is reasonably close and there is a good dairy five minutes walk away on Rifle Range Road. The old "tudor" pub on Roberts Street does good meals. We had hoped to use the unit's kitchen facilities (pots and pans) but unfortunately due to an oversight the electrical lead on the twin element portable stovetop isn't long enough to reach the wall plugs under the cupboard - if we come again we will bring an extension lead! Good wi-fi. We couldn't work the TV except Freeview as we don't have an account with Netflix etc. The instructions supplied were quite complicated. The bathroom is suitable for a wheelchair guest.

We stayed here for 3 nights.The room we had had lake views,spacious kitchen with full size fridge freezer,large living room area and very comfortable bed. This accomodation is perfect and relaxing at a very good price and walkable to all of central taupo. It also was modern and very clean. It seemed like home away from home.

We arrived in Taupō to spend the weekend celebrating a 30th. The motel is situated far enough away from busy traffic but still close enough to town. Friendly greeting at the office. Our room was lovely, clean and a good size for 2 adults. A nice private outdoor space. The bed was comfortable with nice white sheets and there were nice white towels in the bathroom. Husband enjoyed the pressure of the shower.

My wife and I stayed at the Alpine Lake Motel for 4 nights and couldn’t be happier with the experience. Everything you need to feel at home is there, including small kitchen and a soaker tub for a bit of luxury. The location is only about a 10 minute walk to the lake and around the corner is a good cafe and grocery store. Bed was super comfy and the neighborhood was quiet at night. Recommended!
