this motel was very comfortable, quiet and had meals available. A little away from shops etc but still well located. Breakfast was good and rooms spacious enough although getting tired. would recommend to others.

Our story starts with a young couple whose tent had no poles. Seeking a place to lay their heads, they were scared to discover that most places nearby were shut. But one receptionist unhesitatingly referred us to the Alexander Hotel and we owe her a big thanks. This is how we discovered that an unmissable place on the friendly and...

Rooms are comfortable and the recently refurbished bathrooms are a nice bonus. Minibar is provided but not a great selection on offer. The restaurant is above-average for this type of motel as well which is handy since the motel is located away from the centre of town. Overall I would give 3.5 if TA allowed half marks...

Great host. Was extremely accomodating. Accomodation in a family room is all you need for a stop over. They have a pool and restaurant but can't comment on that. We only needed accomodation for a stop over and it was perfect for that

Motel dated but very clean and had everything needed. Stayed in a standard queen room which had an outdoor area ideal for a relaxed drink on arrival. Restaurant was booked out with function so ordered from our room. Great meal and prompt service. Staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend.

Pretty standard motel built some time ago but in good condition with a large and comfortable room. Very quiet and great value for money. Seniors get a discount and breakfast included if you book the "Seniors Special".

Stayed here overnight for business, I usually stay at the foreshore. The Alexander has a similar style of basic room with comfortable beds, my room was clean and tidy and had complimentary WiFi. The quality of food at dinner was excellent, I had grilled whiting that was fresh and delicious. I only interacted with one staff member here and he...
