“Great location close to hospital”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

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...

WE use the Alexis Motor Lodge when we have to visit Dunedin. I find the motel to be comfortable, handy for the town centre, very clean and very quiet. Robyn and staff are very helpful and friendly. we have tried other motels but after finding the Alexis, we would not stay anywhere else. for two people the Studio rooms are very roomy, if you prefer a bath then book the studio with a spa bath well worth the little bit extra ,. The kitchen areas are a bit wee, but don't find any ;problem with that, they have all you need for your stay, Like some other motels that we stayed at they don't like you cooking fishy food, but I agree with that rule, fish does tend to be smelly when you are cooking it, and not very pleasant. The Motel for anyone who needs to visit the Hospital, it is the nearest one and in easy walking distance. Fully recommend this Motel.

Room Tip: All the rooms that we have booked have been very quiet, even the room down at the front, you get no...

Stayed 3 nights at Alexis Motor Lodge in November having booked a couple of days in advance by phone. On arrival we found we had been upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite which had been freshly painted and the extra room was much appreciated, the living area was quite small but the bathroom was large. Both bedrooms were a good size, one had queen bed and the other had a queen plus single, all very clean and tidy. There was also a kitchenette in the room with plenty of kitchen utensils, a guest laundry and clothes line. The sofa was very uncomfortable and Robyn our host was very receptive when I advised her of this. They are in the throes of renovating the motel and she undertook to organise to replace the sofa.

This motel is the closest to Dunedin's shops in George Street and easy walk to restaurants, the Octagon and other sights. There is a restaurant and dairy just across the street and others in the next block so a very convenient location. Robyn made us feel very welcome and even though there are lots of renovations taking place there was no noise from workmen and traffic noise was minimal.

I think these owners are making a real effort to re-do this motel and I wish them well with their efforts.
