Very comfortable and clean unit, great location, friendly staff. A little difficult parking our larger vehicle due to limited space. Always enjoy staying at Alexis. Will definitely stay again!

Hi folks. It was very disturbing to see your 2/5 score on our property. At the time, you seemed so very happy about they way we explained our situation around a trainee accidently deleting your Expedia booking, and then finding you a similar property further along George Street. Sometime mistakes are made- and we do endeavour to "get it right". If not 100% of the time we definitely try our best to remedy the situation with the least inconvenience possible for our guest. Once again we are very sorry that this happened. You mention in your comments that we "Took the money" even though you did not stay here. Yes- it was a prepaid booking- so of course it was processed. We then paid those funds (and some extra) on to the property at which you stayed. I do trust that this has now clarified things for you. We work very hard to please- and to receive such a score, which significantly lowers our rankings and undermines our efforts is very disappointing. Thanks for choosing Alexis. Safe and happy travels

The motel is well located with local cafes & shops right at your doorstep. The room was clean & quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful with suggesting activities.

Yes- a very hot period of weather- out of character for Dunedin- so there is usually no need for air conditioning this far South in NZ.Thanks for the feedback-!- we do have portable fans on request- if only we'd known.:-)

Thanks for your feedback Susan? There should have been a park for one vehicle per unit-- unfortunately if you re a group with 2 vehicles between one larger unit- we are unable to supply the 2nd park- we are obliged to keep it for others, Very sorry if this caused you any unnecessary distress. Thanks for choosing to stay with us at Alexis- our Home away from Home :-)
