My daughter is at Uni and I needed to stay somewhere close to her flat - well I could not have found a better place. Wonderful hosts and a comfortable, clean room. Heaps of parking and fast FREE wifi and sky! Two fabulous cafes within a 5 minute walk and a 24 hour dairy round the corner. Will definitely stay...

We stayed here for 2 nights last weekend. The studio unit was on the small side but so well appointed it didn't matter. Exceptionally clean, sound proof and comfy bed. Service from the office manager was super friendly and efficient. Great location with a really good Cafe less than 100m away and heaps of other food options nearby or less...

We have enjoyed staying at Alhambra Oaks Motor Lodge, and will do so again. So close to the University, Forsyth Stadium and the City centre. Modern and clean rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Prices are very reasonable, especially with a family unit.

We stayed here two nights and it was great! On arrival they greeted us as if we were long lost friends, settling us in and giving us the run down on Dunedin things to see and do. The rooms were nice and clean and well appointed, and the motel has ample parking. It's in a quiet area just outside downtown...

We arrived late and had such a warm welcome. Nothing was a problem. I also had to leave later than I thought, again not a problem. Our room smoke alarm started to beep @ 11pm, no worries to this owner along he came to sort it out straight away. Would definitely recommend this clean, friendly and well run accommodation. .

Small fee for a small compact room. Check in was quick and easy. Highs and lows: Noise - it's beside SH1 so plenty of road noise, walls are a bit thin. Fridge was a bit loud so I turned it off. Liquid soap - I hate that!! Complimentary biscuits - yum Decor - no complaints. Shower - hot and high...

My sister and I have had an absolutely wonderful 5 night stay at the Alhambra Oaks Motor Lodge. Our room was really spacious, had cooking facilities and was spotless! The owners are the most wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything you can think of. We would really recommend staying here, the location is also great :) Thank you...
