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.

Place is very tidy and quiet considering it’s on the side of the main road. Staff is very friendly and highly recommend. It’s got everything you need if you are traveling solo/for business purposes..

Excellent hosting from Doris, who took every care to prepare my room for a late arrival. Friendly communication and comfortable accommodation. Great location to do a Whitestone Cheese Factory tour the next day - just around the corner!!

WE HAD VIEWED THE PHOTOS ON THEIR WEBSITE AND MADE A BOOKING TO STAY ONE NIGHT. AFTER ARRIVING AND PAYING FOR THE ROOM - (OUR MISTAKE) WE WENT INTO THE ROOM WHICH SMELT TERRIBLE. THE BATHROOM AREA, SHOWER AND TOILET EITHER WAS CRACKED AND OLD LOOKING OR DIRTY. i COULDN'T TELL.WHICH. THE BOTTOM OF BOTH WERE CRACKED AND BLACK LOOKING. WE LEFT AND STAYED AT ANOTHER MOTEL. THE MANAGER DID OFFER US ANOTHER ROOM THERE OR ANOTHER ROOM AT HER OTHER MOTEL, BUT I THOUGHT IF SHE WAS HAPPY RENTING OUT THAT ROOM FOR PAYING GUESTS AND THOUGHT THAT WAS ACCEPTABLE, I PRESUMED THEIR CLEANINESS STANDARD WOULD BE THE SAME. GIVE THIS MOTEL A BIG MISS.

We had a great stay at the Alpine Motel. The kitchen studio was perfect for our family- couple and a 2yr old. We had everything we needed. It is dated but very spacious and everything was clean. Enjoyed watching the traffic and people go past from the upstairs outdoor bench seats. This is a great reasonable accommodation option and handy to town - we walked down to the Victorian predinct and harbour/wharf.

Super comfy beds, spacious family room, awesome shower pressure. Plus a clothes washing service, clothes washed and dried for $10. This enabled me as mum to actually feel like I was on holiday. No washing to worry about! The rooms were clean and excellently presented. But more than that the owners are absolutely lovely! 100% approachable. Hardworking down to earth kiwis. We will definitely be back!

This was a nice stay. The room was very old school and dated, but not in a bad way. Everything was well maintained, in great condition and worked well. It reminded me of my nana's house. The heated worked really well and hot water from the tap was almost instant. They provided hand soap and shower gel in pumps.The lady at reception was very friendly

An older style motel on the main road. Even so, it is very quiet at night and there was enough room for the four of us. We booked a two bedroom unit with a kitchenette. Our teenagers shared one room and we had the main room which was also combined with a lounge and small functional kitchenette. Doris, the proprietor, was very helpful with showing us where the local attractions were and provided a map noting the eateries in the area. The motel is within working distance of all the local attractions. We had an enjoyable stay there, making our own breakfast the next morning. Doris let us leave the car there that morning whilst we walked into the heart of Steampunk Central.
