“Average at Best”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Just getting old and tired. Stayed two nights. No soap in dispenser in bathroom. Waited to see if they would fill it up the next day and no they hadn't!! Not a biggie in the overall scheme of life but obviously no systems being used when cleaning. Rooms just not welcoming and ugly old chairs outside the units to sit on - tacky at best. Have stayed at two other motels in Alexandra which whilst being a bit dearer were far superior. Will not stay again.

I have traveled to Alexandra many times for business over the last 20 years and generally always stay at the Centennial Court. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, although a little outdated. The hosts, Shayne and Karen are extremely helpful and pleasant, the restaurant serves very nice meals. For a business stay of several weeks or more the place is just what I needed. Fancy it isn't, but friendly and clean. I am going back in April.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor are quieter since there is no one above.

Stayed one night on our way from Dunedin to Manapouri. Very comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff and a very good restaurant. Service was a bit slow for dinner, but the staff kept us informed and were very apologetic and provided a free after dinner drink to compensate. Would stay again

We were welcomed in a cheery friendly way . We asked for the best room and were shown an executive suite . It was spacious and light with a modern kitchenette and well appointed lounge and great WiFi internet . The bedroom was adequate and the bed extremely comfortable . The bathroom has all facilities and a spa too although the pink decor didn't do it for me.
Everything was spotlessly clean. The atmosphere in the breakfast room was fun ,the breakfast crew were friendly and attentive and the food was freshly cooked .I would recommend this motel for business and pleasure.
i was unwell and i had everything I needed including twelve hours sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for the best room they are worth it .The second floor rooms have good views

In 2009, We were leaving Queenstown for Dunedin but we had to stop at a town overnight because it was too far to drive straight to dunedin in a short space of time. We were going to stay at either Cromwell, Alexandra or Roxburgh. Roxburgh was too far to drive, Cromwell was ideal but we thought we could drive a bit longer so we stayed at Alexandra. We stayed at the Centennial Court Motor Inn. It was very old inside the rooms and average. It didn't matter much because we were basically just going to sleep their, but it still could've been better. Like Centennial Court, Alexandra is pretty average as well. There is a nice bakery near New World though. Cromwell looked like a much better town than Alexandra. When we hit the road to Dunedin we thought we shoud've stayed at Cromwell.
