I arrived at 3pm and was greeted by friendly staff who were helpful and ensured I had milk and everything else that I would need so it was a good start to a night in Invercargill. Upon entering our room which was a one bedroom apartment it initially appeared tidy and well kept. The was a lounge, dining area, kitchenette...

Recently stayed for a week and have stayed there many times previously. I have always found the staff friendly and very obliging. The rooms are large and the fully equipped kitchen is really useful when staying for a while and don't want to live on take- aways!

The room was very big with limited Sky channels. It's clean and easy to go anywhere for eating out. The bed was comfortable. Although it's on the main road, but it's not very noisy at night except other guests making loud noises during midnight :( Shower and the vanity was a little old fashioned. There are plenty off street car...

This was one of the best motels we have stayed in. We had a bedroom, bathroom and sitting room / kitchen-diner. The kitchen was well-equipped and we were able to cook a reasonable dinner for ourselves. The motel had a good laundry facility and free wifi. It was reasonably close to the town centre.

We have stayed 3 nights - perhaps too long for one place on our trip from Christchurch - we have a 3 bed unit with the bedroom upstairs. Downstairs there is a lounge and well equipped kitchen plus a great bathroom with underfloor heating. A quiet place - very clean and well equipped. A negative could be the lack of...

We stayed at this motel during our stay in Invercargill. Had a great ground floor room, very spacious, and very quiet. Beds exceptionally comfy, and very close to local attractions, including Queens Park and town.

The room was the best and most spacious we had during our 23 days trip in New Zealand. Though the motel was completely booked (we stayed there the weekend of the bike race) we had no noise of outside or of leaving people. The frontdesk lady was very friendly and gave good visiting advise in and around Invercargill.

Good room, good facilities, nice and clean. Spacious room downstairs, and beds up on the mezzanine floor. TV's upstairs and down. Heaps of parking. Staff in reception were lovely. Close to Burger King and Mega stores.

The unit we stayed in was very spacious and comfortable. We were able to walk into town easily and the laundry facilities are good. The shower is nice & hot, the toiletries are nice and if like a spa bath then you will appreciate this unit (no good if you have trouble getting in and out of a bath though)....
