Derek Johnson (Owner July 2015)
I come to you from Pleasant Point, South Canterbury where for 10 Years I ran the Pleasant Point Hotel / Nelly’s Resturant. When I came on a family hoilday here I just fell in love with Wanaka so much I decided to come back and purchase Alpine Motel Wanaka and Apartments. Crystal comes to you from Christchurch.
We plan to continue on with the progression of the refurbishment in the units, but I have already completed extensive upgrades – New bathrooms installed in 5 of our largest rooms in June 2017. 4 completely refurbished Superior Studios. All units have had installed Heat-pumps for efficient heating in winter and air conditioning on those hot summer days Wanaka is popular for. Gas hot water has been installed into ALL of our rooms, which means AMAZING shower pressure. Heated Ski Lockers for the Winter season guests and more!
We have also enhanced the childrens playground area, and BBQ outdoor area, as being a family with two children, we want to encourage families to choose to stay with us at Alpine Motel and enjoy the facilities.
We want to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning guests, and we look forward to hosting you and hope to give you a memorable stay.
