This motel gives excellent value for money. Our was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. Staff were most obliging and friendly. Laundry was great only $2 to dry $0 for a wash. Bed was great. Decor is of an older style but still in good condition. Definitely recommend. Close to town for access to eating places too

Our room was spacious and the shower was excellent. The laundry facilities were brilliant - washing machine free and just $2.00 for the drier. Felt like good soundproofing as I could not hear the other rooms like most other places. A bit dated but not worried about that when you have big fluffy towels, comfy bed, nice sheets and a...

The rooms were very spacious, very clean, pleasant atmosphere and affordable. It's great for people with families. We booked this place for two nights before our trip. The second day we got stranded on Stewart Island due to weather conditions. We called the owner at Balmoral Lodge to let them know what happened. The owners were very understanding. They only...

Lovely size for a family unit: small kitchen with full oven (no dishwasher), a dining area with five seats at the table, a comfortable seating area with television, two levels of sleeping space including two 2-bed rooms with radiant-heated floors and cloud-soft poly blankets, and a bathroom with a towel warmer, a sectioned-off toilet area, and a roomy, hot, and...

This hotel is a short walk to the centre of town. The room was very large, clean, and the staff were friendly. They changed our original room allocated (due to noise), but the next room was very quiet and pleasant. We would be happy to stay there again.

When you walk into the unit you are struck with how dark it is. However, everything worked fine and we had a pleasant nights stay at the motel. It is conveniently placed and was comfortable. We were forced to spend another night in Invercargill as we couldn't get across to Stewart Island. We found another motel which was much brighter...

We loved the facilities at this motel. It was so well set up for travelling families. Tv in each room which the kids appreciated. Kitchen was well stocked. The road noise was only a little intrusive as we were in the unit closest to the highway. The only downside was the laundry was separate but still very useful.

I checked in, and for the price, I warned my wife, not to expect too much. As soon as we opened the door, we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very big, had a very big bathroom with a Spa bath. Upstairs, yes, upstairs was a nice bedroom with large comfortable bed and another TV Value 9:10 Cleaniness 9:10...

Best way to describe this Motel is that it is very nice, initially appears to be dated in its decor but everything quite comfortable with plenty of room and facilities available. Upstairs bedroom gives quite large downstairs area.

We were made to feel welcome by this family run motel. Our room was clean and well equiped. It was nice to have a seperate lounge, bedroom and full kitchen. The guest laundry is convenient but the drying lines were in the shade. Though the motel is on the main road it gets quiet after dark and we didn't hear...
