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.

You can not trust this hotel and the owner! We made a reservation over booking.com for three nights. When we arrived, the owner said that they have no room for us despite the reservation. Even worse, the owner was rude and claimed that it was somehow our mistake. Only after intervention of booking.com, he admitted their mistake but did not help us in any way or did not apologize at all. We did not get any room and had to drive 150km to the next available place very late at night. So in short, if you want a place to sleep in Te Anau who does not just forget your reservation and blame you for it, avoid this hotel.

We really enjoyed our 4 nights at Alpine View. Room 8 was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Lovely new bathroom. It was also peaceful, with little noise from other patrons. John, at the front desk, was marvellous; friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We hope to return on future visits

The best part about staying at Alpine View was the extremely flexible manager! As Te Anau was very busy and we had to book 2 different motels, she made it her business to find us a room so we didn’t have to move! Thank you so much!

A great place to stay. The accommodation was very spacious and comfortable. Staff members were very welcoming and helpful during my stay. Fab location, with the lake just being down the road. Overall the accommodation was clean and tidy, but some areas needed a bit more attention.

Dear HCEPCDC Thank you for such a wonderful review and feedback. We're delighted to read you had a grand time staying with us. I'm sorry to hear about some areas needing a bit more attention. Our work here at the Alpine View Motel is an on-going process as she's an old motel with old bones but please do rest assured we'll continue our work to modernise and update the rooms accordingly. At any rate; we do hope to be able to welcome you back to us in future. Warm regards; John

We arrived ahead of the check in time to be met by John who was very helpful and very welcoming. The room was ready and we checked in early. Knowing we were going to Milford Sound the next day John printed an advance weather forecast for us. We had unit 3, a one bedroom unit with cooking facilities. It lacked nothing. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great. It was great to relax on the couch at the end of each day. The wifi was strong and there were ample TV channels including Netflix. The fairly new large, smart TV allowed on demand programes. Onsite parking was available free of charge. It is a short walk to town either along the foreshore or through the park. I highly recommend staying here and will do so again when we journey to Doubtful Sound.

Thanks John for your warm welcome, your magnificent motel, your location and above all, your soccer knowledge. Great..... This motel is located close to Te Anau Lake and the town centre. Parking lot in front of your same room. The room is spacious with a shared terrace. Fully equipped kitchen and a small but correct bathroom. Very comfortable beds. Excellent service with plenty of local recommendations. First choice when staying in Te Anau, which is the necessary starting point when driving to Milford Sound (120 km.)

The hosts are so friendly. They made us feel like they really valued our custom. The location is great, away from the hustle and bustle of town but only 5 mins walking distance and 2 minutes walk to the lake front. Clean and spacious accommodation. Would definitely come again.

A perfect place to relax and unwind. From the wonderfully warm welcome by John on arrival, to everything you need in your room, this is a place to unwind. The hotel is located within walking distance of some great restauarants and cafes and has good Wi-fi. John is more than hapy to asssit with anything you may need at any time and is full of good recommendations on things to do and places to see
