Travelling on my own this time, I received a very warm welcome at Alexander Spa Motel. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable, plus a simple continental breakfast as well - all for a very reasonable tariff. Highly recommended!

Good place to stay in a small town. Cleanliness is important to me and my room was spotless. Has everything in the room that you need. Only one street back from the main shopping area so a handy location without being on the main road like so many motels are.

Great Motel and outstanding friendly customer service, management made us feel very welcome for our 2 nights booked. The room was warm and comfortable and met all my families needs. Continental breakfast was supplied with a range of spreads to cater to all my family's tastes. The cleaners/management were so efficient and friendly when servicing our room we were restocked...

I stayed here on a cold winter's night. The room was lovely and warm, extremely clean and with wonderful quality cotton linen sheets. A really great Motel. Great facilities and lovely owners and staff. I can highly recommend to all.

We attempted to check into this motel. Their hours of operation are 9am to 7pm, where we arrived at 9.30am looking to book 2 rooms for 2 nights. The front office was clearly closed, and when we rang the door-bell, a woman in her dressing gown came out and demanded we come back at 1pm as this is "check in"... More

We stayed here one night for a funeral. Booked via Wotif, which is where their website referred us. Their website mentioned a discount for AA members, but I wasn't sure how to choose this - you may have to phone the motel. Breakfast was included - a choice of toast, museli or something else. Note, if you choose museli, you... More

This motel is certainly tired but it is inexpensive. The studio room was heated with one column heater and this would not be enough had it been colder. There was a wall panel which is maybe controlled by the central office as the thermostat and switch would have to be reached with a step-stool. Everything was clean but basic. The... More

1 night stay for a funeral. Booked via Travelbug.co.nz Pretty good value for money. Good free breakfast. Comfy bed. Didn't try the spa. One tip, take bottled water for making hot drinks, even brushing your teeth. This is not the motels fault, but Taumarunui tap water leaves a horible after taste. The Alexander Spa Motel had plenty of very HOT... More
