A little bit out of the way but worth it. The rooms are large and really clean and modern. Huge bed in a separate room. Full kitchen, lounge room and separate bathroom. Quiet area. Close to New World for supplies, short walk 700m into town.
This is a comfortable motel situated on a side street off the main road leaving or arriving in Alexandra. It is not right in the middle of town, it took me about 20 minutes to walk when staying there, but it is close to excellent restaurants and a large well stocked NewWorld supermarket. The rooms are partially refurbished (relatively new paint, carpet and curtains), and the one we had had a dated but functional and clean bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom was small, and the kitchen large and spacious, excellent for cooking without any restrictions on the kind of food people could cook (much appreciated). I did have one of those beds, which I don't really like, whereby it is two single beds pushed together to make a large king sized looking bed. When first encountering them they look huge, but in fact they are two mattresses combined together. I invariably fall through the middle while sleeping. The best way to deal with this is to focus on one side of the bed and treat it as if it is in fact a single mattress. But this will vary for people, and you could ask about options before or when booking. One of the attractions of staying here was the swimming pool, but it didn't seem operational when staying, or at least it didn't look as if it were. The owners/managers were hospitable, kind and welcoming. They even supplied fresh full cream milk in a glass bottle. Even though I tend to drink soy and avoid diary if I can for health reasons, it was in fact delicious and I really appreciated the commitment to sustainability by use of glass bottles and locally sourced milk. This is a convenient, comfortable and reliable motel for a night or two in Alexandra.…
Friendly service. We stayed in two different units each side of doing the rail trail. Both were clean, quiet and spacious. Had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Only 5 mins walk to the New World, and a 5 min ride from the rail trail. Secure undercover place to store our bikes. Even on the night the motel was full, we couldn't hear the other guests. Plenty of car parking. Nice location.
We have stayed here before and once again we are very happy to recommend this motel. We stayed two nights in the last week - before and after doing a bike trail and our hosts were lovely and helpful. Very clean and comfortable.
Room 8 is tucked away round the back. It had a small shady courtyard which was awesome as it was 27 deg. The room was really clean and the super king size bed was amazing, really comfy. Great place to stay
