I get excellent service from Alexis Motor Lodge. The rooms are always clean and tidy, and the staff are very helpful. The motor lodge is close to town, shopping and many restuarants. I highly recommend it.

The motel was all we expected, rooms are comfortable and the location was good with only a 10 min walk to the centre of Dunedin. The parking can be a bit tricky because of the sloping ground but we managed ok. The Lone Star restaurant is opposite for good meals and service.

Felt we made the right decision in staying here as opposed to further out as we could walk to most things ( railway station, eateries, shops etc) Though an older building the room was modern,very spacious and well laid out. Can opt for a ground floor unit to avoid the stairs if mobility is an issue. Laundry was very convenient...

We spent two nights here with our three children in a two bedroom suite. The Alexis is located just steps away from all of the shops and restaurants on George Street and walking distance to the train station. The hosts were very welcoming and recommended we take our children to the Discovery Forest at the Otago Museum which they enjoyed...

We stayed at Alexis Motel in Dunedin this week and can't say enough great things about this motel and the team lead by Robin. Robin is a lovely host who looks after everything for you without being in your face. The units are extremely clean and well presented, also serviced every day. It is a place close to the city...

Very hospitable hosts. Excellent location and great rooms. The Lodge had everything we required and we're clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable and the place felt secure. Only real hassle wad the parking antics of some others that made it difficult to find a place one night.
