The motel was easy to find-it's opposite the water tower. The room was spacious and clean and the receptionist very helpful. As we only stayed one night on the way to Te Anau we didn't have time to look at the park close to the motel, but it looked lovely. We did go to Bluff-NZ's lands end. It's less than...

We stayed here on our way to and from Stewart Island. Emily and Leo were fantastic hosts. Happy to pick us up from the airport, friendly & welcoming. The hotel is a great location, and the room was clean, tidy and warm. Great shower & bed too. Would definitely stay there again if I was back through Invercargill.

Excellent motel,scrupulously clean,good sized apartment, comfy bed and friendly hosts. It meets all requirements, good cooking facilities and well priced. It is within easy walking distance of an excellent restaurant, The saucy Chef. Highly recommended. PS some booking sites still say that it only has paying wifi...not so, wifi is free.

Highly recommend the Tower Motel. Very comfortable and clean with good cooking facilities. Close to beautiful Queen's gardens and short drive to the centre of town. Easy to find because of the water tower opposite.
