Stayed here in early January during very hot weather and the lack of fan/aircon was an immediate issue until I had cooled down from the long drive. Basic units but it was all we honestly needed. Staff were friendly. We had an upstairs unit (2 Br) and with young children the fact the windows over the bed opened wide above... More

There was no allocated parking so had to look all around the property to find a spare park. The room was quite old & also very warm. At least a fan should have been included in the room in absence of air-con. The main door with glass panels needs a curtain/blinds as there is too much light falling onto the... More

One night stop over. useful location, just off the main road. Plenty of parking space. Bit jaded furnishings but sufficient for a short stop. Evening food at the popular adjoining restaurant was very good quality, only slightly marred by an over-ebullient brusque male 'waiter.' Breakfast was well suited to need on a very cold morning.

Hi and thank you for the comments, yes we have a great reputation for our restaurant and would love to have you stay with us again. We have a couple of units which have some "older furnishings" so we are due to replace these. regards Shayne More

It was overall ok, although toilets, carpet and especially heater (very old and noisy) need to be replaced. Too much light coming into the units and it is very bad insulated so the heater and electric blankets need to be on all night (too much energy waste for cold Alex). No sky tv as indicated. Other than that, location is... More

Thank you for your comments, yes Alexandra can be cool in the winter months and the heaters are able to be left on through the night, we have also replaced the heater in that unit, thank you for mentioning that. Sky TV is in all units so am not sure why you could not find that. regards Shayne More

Great location on one of the main streets. Very friendly service from management and staff. We had a deluxe unit with a spa bath which was a bonus. Unit was well appointed and comfortable. We also enjoyed a lovely meal at the onsite restaurant and bar.

On the first night my husband became ill and was transferred to hospital in Clyde then on to Dunedin where he spent all of the holiday. Another member of our... More

Rooms were clean but extremely out dated with 70s bathrooms and heaters!!! We stayed at another property in Alex the week before which for the same rate is 1000x better. Service on checkout was quite blunt and I did feel ignored at first. Rooms are all near to driveway so can be extremely loud and there is a lot of... More

My husband and I booked for 1 night on our way back home to Tauranga. We were booked into a single rather tight unit. When we arrived the reception lacked respect for their clientele, I was given a "we are totally booked out" without confirming my booking, booking was made and confirmed online. When booking had been confirmed, I asked... More

In responce to this person - This is a large complex with several locations for parking. The unit had been reserved, on arrival please indicate this not ask for a vacancy, this took 30 seconds to remedy. We have a restaurant on site so we always have green milk available, when offered you chose to get your own. You wanted... More
