On the plus side - the hosts were very friendly and the unit was clean and tidy. But it stopped there - very tired decor, hardly any plugs to charge phones and ipads, very tired seating, no coffee tables, bedding - very dated.

A big thankyou to Sue and David for their wonderful hospitality while we were in Invercargill recently with my son in hospital. They went out of their way to help and offer support. Room was spacious, clean and quiet - plus close to the supermarket, town and hospital. Highly recommend for a stay in Invercargill.
