Good value motel only 15 mins from town or 10 mins from Queens Park but in a quiet street. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are clean and spacious with a kitchenette. Good value for money.

For a reasonable price, you get a very nice room equipped with smart TV including Netflix, a full kitchen, and a Jacuzzi bath tub. Very nice accommodations in the heart of Invercargill. No complaints, definitely recommended.

Booked a spa room however on arrival was informed the spa was not working. Reception were apologetic and offered the same room at a discounted rate. Also was offered an alternate room as well. Other than this our stay was fine. The room had a full kitchen and a large lounge room - very comfortable. Free Wi-Fi was also appreciated....

Five nights late November 2016 for the Burt Munro challenge, seven of us all up. Great accommodation, spacious, comfortable & close to town. The best part was the willingness of the owners to go the extra mile & make our stay as easy & as pleasant as possible, thank you. Highly recommended, would definitely stay again.

This was a disappointing stay and it is with some reluctance that I write this review because I appreciate that the young owner is very keen to please clients; however . . . The room was newly renovated in what was, apparently an older motel that had bay windows, high ceilings and intricate cornices. Sadly, modern minimalism has been taken...
