We had a large earthquake during our stay

Posted 15-Nov-2016
Pros: The units are delightful
Location: Beautiful part of the world
These guys were amazing during the disaster that was a 7.5 magnitude earthquake. I would definitely come back and Alpine View would be my first choice for accommodation

Pros: Staff helpful and friendly, easy access to the beach, playground for the kids outside the u it was handy.
Cons: Double glazing needed to lower train noise though with where tracks are doubt would block but would assist. Upgrade in units, a few issues
Location: Beach handy walk but be aware of crossing train tracks with young kids, seal swim, whale watch, fishing tours including for crayfish, restaurants etc
Trains at the unit door were annoying through the night, double glazing wouldnt go astray. rooms could do with an update but when tired from a long drive it was good. Staff was lovely and helpful so would return again for the service.

Dark and depressing

Posted 29-Apr-2016
My room was dark, with poor lighting, the wifi didn't work inside and the TV reception was terrible.

Lovely place close to town.

Posted 24-Mar-2016
Pros: Plenty of space, really clean and close to beach and town
Location: Whale watching and dolphin swimming is just minutes down the road from this place. There's great spots to eat and drink just minutes away.
Three of us had a lovely stay at the Alpine View, which is just a few minutes drive from town. The owners are hilarious with their cheeky banter back and forth and they keep the rooms impeccably clean. This is a great budget priced venue that far exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended.

Destination à privilégier

Posted 16-Mar-2016 on Hotels
Le soleil a agrémenté notre séjour malgré le vent qui nous a privés de la sortie en mer "whale watch" (houle trop importante) mais la promenade le long du Pacifique de 2h fut très vivifiante. L'hôtel est très calme et situé à côté de Countdown pour les courses. Très bons fish&chips en ville (blue cod) et jolis magasins (Geneviève's).
