This hotel is a short walk to the centre of town. The room was very large, clean, and the staff were friendly. They changed our original room allocated (due to noise), but the next room was very quiet and pleasant. We would be happy to stay there again.

When you walk into the unit you are struck with how dark it is. However, everything worked fine and we had a pleasant nights stay at the motel. It is conveniently placed and was comfortable. We were forced to spend another night in Invercargill as we couldn't get across to Stewart Island. We found another motel which was much brighter...

We loved the facilities at this motel. It was so well set up for travelling families. Tv in each room which the kids appreciated. Kitchen was well stocked. The road noise was only a little intrusive as we were in the unit closest to the highway. The only downside was the laundry was separate but still very useful.

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.
