Very quiet, comfortable, clean, friendly owners who were helpful. Stayed there for a night, so good we went back a week later for another stay before leaving Invercargill. Loved the spa bath and great water pressure in the shower. I would highly recommend this motel.

Hotel's Favourite
The Tower Lodge Motel was a great place. We had the one-bedroom apartment with spa, which had a very nice kitchen and a phenomenal bathroom. The hot tub was a treat! TV with Netflix was also very nice. When we were leaving, James took the time to give us some great tips about the Southern Scenic Route--we went to the places he told us about and were very happy we did (including the spot for lunch). Thanks, James!

We recently stayed in a one bedroom unit and a two bedroom unit. Both were spacious, warm and spotlessly clean. The two bedroom unit was more like a small house. The beds were comfortable and the showers great. There are car parks in front of each unit. The hosts were super friendly and very helpful giving us some good local advice on things to see and do while in Invercargill. The motel complex is centrally located and within easy walking distance to good restaurants, cafes and Queens Park Gardens. We will definitely stay here again when next in Invercargill.

Lovely little, immaculately clean motel. Super friendly staff happy to help us with our tourist questions! We parked the hire car up and didn't use it again til we left Invercargill because the motel is so handy for everything in town. We walked to the beautiful Queens Gardens, E Hayes (to see the World's Fastest Indian) and then a wee bit of a longer walk to the Bill Richardson Motor Museum. Lovely Thai restaurant a 10 min walk back in to town (called Thai Thai.) Would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable unit, friendly amenable owners. Great location. I stayed before and after a hike an hour away. The owners were happy to keep some gear I didn't need on the hike and it was in my room when I got back.
