Room on ground floor with a king and two single beds.(Unit 2) Roomy and fresh, the best 3 day stay in a motel for 20 years or so. Wet floor shower was a novelty and worked well. Bottled milk, hot drinks selection and morning paper as well. Chose the unit as it had a 24% discount on offer. No bad... More

We only stayed at this motel for one night but we thought it was fantastic and great value. We stopped in with no booking and were easily able to get a room for a great price. The Manager was fantastic and a pleasure to deal with. We were also serviced by a new trainee who was very lovely and helpful.... More

I came to stay here in the unusual circumstance of my wife breaking her hip and ending up in the Invercargill hospital. The staff are excellent and were very helpful at a stressful time for me and my family. A big thanks to Tony and Dorothy.

We'd definitely visit here again. All of the staff were friendly, and it's in a great, central location. We loved that our room had a full kitchen. Rooms were extremely clean, and a good size, as well as being warm, and quiet. Not only that but very reasonably priced. Oh and good quality tea and coffee too, which is not... More

Nice and clean and friendly. My cooker broke, but they gave me an option for an electric fry pan, then organised the electrician later in the week who got onto it which was great. They also felt that the heaters weren't working so when I came home my wee fan heater was on! Pretty great.

Stayed here for a night and had a very good night of sleep. Room was quiet and clean. Not a far walk to the CBD. I recommend this motel to anyone visiting Invercargill. Will stay here again on my next business travel.

We stayed a few days in Invercargill. The hotel is well organized and the rooms are incredible and very clean. Hydromassage and comfortable beds. The staff is nice and helpful. TONY, the owner, is a very nice person at disposal for all the necessities. I would recommend it 100%.
