Ideal self-sufficient small motel complex

Review of Alpenhorn Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Nov 2019via mobile
This block of around six motel units is the perfect quiet spot for your independent traveller.

You’re basically left to your own devices (key to our unit was left out for us on arrival, and the office seems to be closed or unattended the majority of the time). This didn’t bother us, as we knew there were numbers we could call if we needed anything.

The unit was well fitted out with everything you would need and could expect for the price.

The location is good being just a block from the lakefront / a short walk away to the town centre (fair selection of cafes and restaurants nearby).

A good reliable choice for a short Te Anau get-away.

We only had one night in Te Anau, and as we arrived at 4.30pm and left again at 6.30 the following morning, we never even saw a member of staff! But they left our keys for us and getting in was easy. If you are checking-out before 8.30, just leave your key in the key hole on the door.
It was a cold night, and our heaters in rooms 1 & 3 worked great and kept us toasty all night.
The room is very simple and a little dated, but very clean and for the price, we couldn't grumble.
The TV was pretty useless but we weren't really watching anyway.
There's decent Wi-fi and a parking space for every room.
The location is great, within 10 minutes of all the restaurants.
If you are leaving early in the morning, the petrol stations offer 24 hour payment via self-service.

Shabby and outdated, and Te Anau in April is COLD! One tiny fan heater for a one bed unit does not cut the mustard, especially as there are no electric blankets either. For $230 a night, I expect more. Much more.

Our room was comfortable, spacious, clean and we had a kitchenette adequately set up for two people. A great base to travel from and gave us the independence we wanted. There was a table with chairs which came in handy inside as well as outside so we could enjoy the mountain scenery.

Room tip: Check the TV doesn't have a buzz.

This is an older style motel but doesn't fall short in terms of space, cleanliness and facilities. We had a large room with a separate kitchen which was perfectly adequately equipped to cook a full meal. There was also a nice little garden to sit out at the back. The wifi was poor and the satellite channels extremely limited but then this is quite a remote town. The advertised BBQ and playground did not exist! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Very handy to walk into town and to the lake.
