Good functional motel with large rooms, very clean and a choc on the pillow - nice! It's only a ten min walk to town and the front desk service was very good. If travelling to Invercargill again we would definitely go here again.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen facilities for 4 nights. The motel managers are very friendly and accommodating, the unit was warm, clean and well maintained. Great central location in the middle of town. Would recommend.

Had a lovely stay here at this motel. Found it to be spotlessly clean. Comfortable bed. Nice quiet location. Friendly staff. Only criticism would be the wifi which was very poor, dropping in and out constantly so that I gave up and couldnt do any work online, argh. This is a most excellent place to stay if you don't need... More

We only had a flying visit to Invercargill on our way from Queenstown to Stewart Island. I chose the Yarrow Motel based on location, and it was perfect for our needs. The clean room was a good-size, with a well kitted out kitchen, and a decent, if slightly-old-fashioned bathroom. There was easy parking for each room. Even though we had... More

A great base to explore the local area and close to The Batch Cafe. Excellent clean accommodation, and very friendly hosts. Hot water central heating too, so toasty. Courtesy drop transportation from the airport too.

This is a well modernised traditional motel in a quiet location. It is very close to the famous Victorian water tower. Breakfast is available on a tray in traditional style. There's a friendly welcome, too.

The room is spacious & clean. The owners were lovely & it is nice & close to town. Reasonable price as well compared to others I looked at. We only started one night as we were passing through but it's somewhere I'd stay again.

Excellent motel close to city centre. Clean and everything worked in a spacious two roomed unit with separate bathroom. The view was of the car park but the unit was well heated - necessary despite it being summer - and the owner was extremely helpful. A really good value place to stay.

This motel is a great place to stay. It is an easy walk to town (or a $7 cab fare if it is too wet to walk). The owners are very friendly and helpful. I have stayed here a few times because of the owners and the location.
