“Great stay in central Dunedin Motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Wonderfully located, clean, comfortable and welcoming accommodation. Robyn was a welcoming hostess and not at all fazed by my late arrival (thanks!). Wifi was a bonus. Kitchen was well equipped, but why would you cook with lovely cafes over the road and lots of eateries within walking distance, I has a spa unit with a generous spa bath. The main room was spacious and generously proportioned. Great stay all round.

Great Motel in central location. My studio room was large, well equipped (with free wi-fi), clean and tidy. As a consequence of it's location with many eating establishments near by noise could be an issue for some however even though I had a room near the street I did not find it problematic.
I recommend this establishment to anybody looking for a central motel in Dunedin, near the hospital or town end of the University. For me location, the competitive price and welcoming proprietress means I will be returning next time I am in town.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

The location of the Alexis is great. Easy walking access to the downtown, pubs and restaurants.

The rooms are spacious and good with a full satellite service in the living room and a decent TV service in the bedroom (based on our one br apartment).

The driveway is quite steep, so if you have mobility issues, and plan on ambulating, you may want to look at it first.

The owner who dealt with us was very attentive.

There is free wifi, however, unlike other hotels in Dunedin, it seemed slow and a tad unreliable. However, i am being super critical, as it was serviceable.

I'd consider staying there again. The one BR apartments have a kitchenette, however an oven would have really topped it off.

This motel is well located close to hospital (3 min walk) and easy walk to food court and shopping mall. We have stayed on two occasions in two different rooms and on both times rooms were warm and clean and tidy. There is more street noise from rooms close to the road but this is to be expected in a motel so close into town. The room that I stayed in at the back of the complex had no street noise. Car parking was never a problem with a park for every room. We found the new management (Robyn) very helpful with any thing we asked for done even lending me her own cell phone charger when I came with out mine.
I will stay there again on my next visit to Dunedin.

We were lucky to happen upon the Alexis on our short stay in Dunedin. The staff was cheery and helpful with sightseeing options and dining recommendations. Easy walking to fabulousness dining and night life. Plenty of parking and a nice clean room with free internet and TV. A treat after a long road trip from Milford Sound.

The motel is very conveniently located near the centre of town and has plenty of off road parking. The rooms (living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area) were all spacious, well furnished/equipped and very comfortable. The kitchen was good with plenty of cutlery, crockery etc plus a bottle of fresh milk was provided. There were 2 flat screen TVs with cable channels, There is a nice pub/restaurant just across the road. The proprietress was very friendly and helpful and our only regret was that we could only stay one night. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Dunedin

We found Alexis very handy to the city and the off street parking a plus! Voted coziest bed for our whole trip. Couldn't be happier.

Slightly over zealous housekeeping knocking at our door right on ten o'clock was the only slight grizzle - certainly glad we didn't drink to much New Years Eve!!

Keep up the great work, new management is wonderful

Room Tip: most comfortable bed in a long time, including our international travel too! great to have cooking...
