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...

Thus motel would not win any interior design awards. In Australia it would also probably be called holiday apartments/flats rather than a motel. My apartment of three rooms was mainly furnished with old and rather ill assorted pieces and had a strong musty smell when I first went into it. The refrigerator was not switched on, the first time I...

First time staying here and found the service very friendly and my room comfortable and clean. Will certainly be coming back. Room was large with full lounge suite and kitchen and heating was excellent. Maybe not the most modern motel in Invers but definitely made up for by that Southland hospitality and readiness to go the extra mile.

Despite seeming quite lavish and old (yes, i do not know how these two can come together) at first sight, the place is actually very affordable compared to its peers along the same street. Super strategic location, free laundry was really a plus point, not to mention that even the studios are spacious with built-in kitchen and a cosy bathroom....

Just a single nights' stay for work. I arrived late straight from the airport. My flight was delayed, but reception was still open. the owner's cat came wandering into my room. I don't mind, as I like cats, but beware it definitely didn't want to leave the room! The room was large and was clean and comfortable. The only thing...

We had a conference in Invercargill and the organisers booked us into this motel. Whilst it is of an older style it was immaculately clean, very spacious with a large kitchen / living area. Heaps of hot water. A real home away from home. Highly recommend especially if you are bringing children with you with all the room space. Very...
