“Wonderful find”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

My delight to find an apartment that had a real bath! Overhead shower and separate toilet. A lovely large kitchen, open plan with spacious dining room come lounge. It had everything we needed. A very good double bedroom with an additional twin bedroom which we didn't require. Altogether very comfortable. Additional laundry facilities as well. Denise the owner made us very welcome. She was able to give us useful sight seeing advice. Would return again with pleasure.

Room Tip: This is the oldest motel in Invercargill, which is why it has a real bath in the bathroom. This was...

One of the 'older' but very good and favoured Motels. I have stayed here many times and enjoy the spaciousness and the 'extra mile' benefits of staying at a minimum premises establishment.
Very clean and more like 'at home' than most modern motels. And owner very freindly and always a smiling face to be greeted with.

Room Tip: I thin they are all 2 bedroom units so lots of space for 'stuff'

The service by the lady owner could not be better - so pleasant and helpful.
The rooms are a little on the small size but quite adequate, and very well set out with quite large separate kitchen and nice ensuite which you can shut off with a door. Another door from the kitchen into the ensuite.
Spotlessly clean, light, bright and modern. Plenty of parking right outside the door.
The location is just off the main road and very quiet.
We would thoroughly recommend it.
Also do not miss visiting the store E. Hayes & Sons - I've never seen anything like it!.

We stayed here last week and had a great experience. We had the choice of 2 great rooms. The bed was super comfortable and new (a rarity when using budget accommodation), the rooms were very clean and the service was friendly and fantastic not to mention being tucked away just off the main road - super quiet too! Denise helped us plan our touristy activities as well as giving us some great suggestions for dinner - then organising us a lift there and back!

A great budget motel where the staff made our stay even better!
