“Alexis Motor Lodge Dunedin N.Z.”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

My husband and I have spent a month touring N.Z. we started in the South Island. We booked the Alexis motor lodge from the AA acommodation guide. It was a super place, walking distance to the beautiful city of Dunedin. It was one of the best stays we had while we were in N.Z. The staff are really friendly and helpfull nothing was too much trouble.The studio was really well appointed and very comfortable.

this motel is in a great location on the main street of dunedin, the rooms are clean and tidy a little dated but have everything you need. They have two bedroom rooms also which are great for families. The driveway up to the rooms is very steep as is alot of dunedin so recommend you bring some suitable footwear should you venture out on foot!

This motel was truly a great place to stay. The location is excellent, very close to many cheap, good restaurants. The room itself was very clean and spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped. It was a fantastic price too (I think NZ$115). There was also onsite free parking. A fabulous motel which I would certainly recommend highly to others.

Room Tip: I would ask for a quiet room at the back. We could hear some very loud cars and late night revellers...

Decor is dated, but the room was clean and the hosts very friendly. One of the better places I have stayed in Dunedin. Location is within walking distance to CBD, and restaurants. Spa bath took ages to fill, but was worth waiting for.

We arrived here expecting so much more. The place is clean enough but it is very old and basic. The bathroom looks as if it is 40+ years old. I can't even sit on the couch because it is making me itchy. Smokers are smoking outside their rooms and the smoke is coming into ours. The child play area consists of two dirty swings and a ladder. The electric blankets don't work. You can hear the traffic quite well and the helicopter bringing in the freshly injured. No view except of old buildings. Beds are small and not the king size bed I had thought we would get. That said, it is convenient to the hospital and centrally located. I cannot understand the "excellent" reviews.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

The motel unit we stayed in needed redoing. The bathroom had many areas of chipped paintwork. The drapes were old fashioned as was the furniture. There was rubbish stuffed down the side of the sofa and paper under one of the beds so not impressed by that. No extra blankets or pillows provided and no wardrobes in rooms. Headboards on the single beds not even attached .Location is good but for the price charged there are much better motels in central Dunedin. Stayed here several times in the first years it opened but were very disappointed this time and would not stay again.

Similar to other reviewers, I was delighted to find a centrally located, clean comfortable motel. Our room had plenty of space, a spa in the bathroom and all mod cons including free wifi. Just 1-2 mins walk is everything that you might need for meals and entertainmant. Our room had a lovely view of the church next door too. The lady who ran the motel was extremely helpful and went out of her way to answer any queries we had. It was spot on.
