Stayed here with our kids for 2 nights. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Best nights sleep I've had in ages. Room was lovely and warm and when Netflix didn't work owner came straight over and got it going for us. Great Fish and chip shop over the road. Lovely couple running the place and a reasonable price

Some bits were dated such as the spa bath. I could not get shower to work due to the bath but lots of perks such as Tv in bedroom as well as lounge. Well fitted kitchen Not sure if I would go Back, probably not but probably just because outdated not anything to do with the service

Situated in a quiet residential area, this motel was clean and entirely adequate for a night's stay. The hosts were very friendly. The room itself was dated and a bit sparse, but the motel was centrally located and convenient.

Other towels were pretty tired too. The basin was old, damaged all over. The wall had holes/some damages. Not impressed at all for what...

This was a pleasant and clean motel. There were minor signs of wear and tear but generally good condition. The soap dispenser and tissue dispensers in the bathroom were empty and not refilled and the bath mat I was given on the second day was very badly stained which I pointed out to reception. The Netflix would have been a...

For a reasonable price, you get a very nice room equipped with smart TV including Netflix, a full kitchen, and a Jacuzzi bath tub. Very nice accommodations in the heart of Invercargill. No complaints, definitely recommended.

Booked a spa room however on arrival was informed the spa was not working. Reception were apologetic and offered the same room at a discounted rate. Also was offered an alternate room as well. Other than this our stay was fine. The room had a full kitchen and a large lounge room - very comfortable. Free Wi-Fi was also appreciated....
