Reviewed 2 April 2012

Without doubt, the Tower Lodge Motel, Invercargill was our best stop of our entire trip in NZ. Spacious, tasteful, well equipped, with excellent hosts, it barely missed a beat. From the car park it doesn't look that special, but the first thing that hits you is the depth as it goes back a good 30ft+. The first section is shared by a dining table and chairs opposite a generous settee. Then comes a good sized double bed. At the foot there's good passing space between bed and wardrobe. Finally the room splits into bathroom and kitchen area. In the bathroom there's a jetspa attachment and over bath shower, and the lights double as heat lamps. You've just gotta have a bath! The kitchen section has double stove burner, microwave and large fridge. The whole room is tastefully decorated in rich burgundy and purple and the wood units blend in well. There's no external seating but, that aside, nothing's missed. Internet access is provded free and we were upgraded to accommodate our need to Skype UK. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending for anyone.

Apartment- like room with kitchenette, living room, bed and bath. Wireless Internet, convenient parking, laundry on site. Outstanding personal attention from front office -- over and above what we expected.

Close to Queen's Park and Southland Museum (don't miss it!)

Arrived in Invercargill on a dismal day but weather quickly forgotten when we arrived at the Tower Lodge Motel.

Dawn's welcome and time spent explaining what to do in Invercargill was very much appreciated. The motel room was immaculate and by far the best equipped with quality appliances and furnishing. The bed was very comfortable.

The time spent in Invercargill was far too short and we intend to return sometime in the future and again enjoy Dawn and Ray's hospitality.

If your looking for a local take-a-way meal try Kings Fish Market in Ythan Street. Best fresh Blue Cod and chips ever tasted. Also if you are interested in Burt Munro and "The Worlds Fastest Indian" visit E Hayes & Sons Ltd in Dee Street. A great motorbike museum set amongst a hardware store.

We chose the Tower Lodge Motel as it was the #1 on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed...outstanding friendly and helpful service by hosts Dawn and Ray.

We had 2 couples so Dawn offered us a 2 bedroom unit with 1 king and 1 queen bed which was great as these are hard to find.

Great advice about what to see and do in Invercargill. Well located near Queens Park with walkways and excellent Southlands Museum.
