I liked this hotel - decent location, with a nice cafe for brekkie located a few blocks away on Tay street. Room was clean, typical size for a studio room. The bathtub was a nice touch after several days of hiking. Electric blankets reminded me of my granma's house (in a good way). Chain on the door, which I like....

A return visit. We were welcomed back by the friendly staff. Our room was large and comfy. An easy stroll into town for a cafe or restaurant. Parking next door but not undercover. Wifi available and included.

The old post office was refurbished as a hotel. Room very clean and comfortable with cooking facility. Bathroom bit messy with short shower curtain so floor gets very wet. Friendly receptionist who recommended fab restaurant for dinner

Needed a one night stay before joining my tour. Booked a Studio Room in the historic Post Office. Interesting to see the way historic buildings are redesigned to a new use. Whilst sometimes you could see the age of the building, I enjoyed the stay. The room had what appeared to be excellent self-catering facilities (didn't use) and was nicely...

Thank you for your kind feedback. We don't often have issues with the rooms being too hot - you struck a rare hot day in Invercargill :-)

This is a great place to stay. Clean and tidy with plenty of space. Location is good too. Would happily recommend this to anyone staying in Invercargill. Very handy to lots of sightseeing locations and shops.

We stayed for a couple of nights on business, room was ok. Shower was awkward to get in to. Wifi was good, building was old and rooms had been renovated and were ok. Could do with a better desk to work on.

As we only had a short drive today, we arrived 90 minutes early. For the first time in 10 days we were sent away as the room was not ready. No big deal but a definite surprise. The Quest is a charming old building with high ceilings which makes the room appear small, but it has everything you could possibly...

Thank you for staying at Quest and for your feedback. Check-in is 2pm onward as you will appreciate. Normally we can accommodate early check-ins but sometimes when the hotel is full as it has been for months now, it can be difficult to turn around all of the rooms and have them ready in 3 hours. Anyone turning up early...

Thank you for your feedback. We do apologise for the Sat night noise - it was particularly bad the night you stayed - I know because I live in the room above yours. The Sat night "boy racers" are something that we have no control over, but we are working with police and council on this. We are a busy...

Very comfortable and modern apartments. Continental breakfast is ready and waiting in the fridge. however this is very small - 2 slices of bread with spreads and a yoghurt, fresh milk and orange juice.

We arrived in Invercargill in late January in pouring rain and high winds. We wondered why we had decided to go there on our trip round the south island. Whilst there isn't a lot to do for tourists, In the end we were glad we went there because it's probably closer to the real NZ than the usual tourist places....

Thank you for your kind feedback Robert. Unfortunately NZ has had an unusually bad summer this year and it sounds like you may have had more than your share. However I can tell you that for the last 10 days in Invercargill we have been experiencing warm sunny days. Breakfast should have included Meusli, milk, orange juice, yoghurt, toast, and...
