A big thanks to the lovely owners who made our stay during Field Days week so comfortable and stress-free. The little things like helping with laundry after a very long day, and sorting a colleague out with a bed when her accommodation elsewhere was mucked up were very much appreciated. The motel offers lots of little extras like complimentary umbrellas and books to borrow. The rooms were scrupulously clean, warm and quiet. Excellent shower with plenty of hot water, comfy bed, plenty of TV channels and even a DVD player available on request. Being away from home for 4 nights was easy at Moana Court. It's not the newest place in town, but everything is very well cared for, especially the guests. I'd stay again.

Very well run so clean and tidy throughout. Very quiet as well despite handy location on main road. Plenty parking, soap bars (I hate liquid soap), sky, etc. spacious older style unit but in excellent condition.
Would stay again and very moderate pricing.

We booked and paid on the phone for a two bedroom unit but ended up preferring one of their single bedroom units; but we still ended up paying for a two bedroom. They were helpful finding a room we liked. Bottom line was - we enjoyed our stay.

I am really sorry if you felt that you had been overcharged. The rate you paid was our seniors rate. and the room that you selected was unit 6 which also is the same price as our 2 bedroom unit.
We hope that you will stay with us next time

Positives- very clean , lovely friendly service, quiet., comfortable beds
Negatives were a really uncomfortable couch and lack of a vanity in bathroom.,,,and there is room for one. Think an up date of bathroom and lounge needed.

The unit that you booked is also our access unit and we do have plans for an upgrade of this unit
Re the bathroom it is not possible to add a vanity as it would cut down the space for wheelchairs
and also the plumbing would be a problem unfortunately the original owners did not put the drainage into the wall so it would be a major to change.
We have put mirrors in both bedrooms above the drawer units to allow guests to apply makeup etc.
We are sorry that you found the couch uncomfortable we replaced this when we arrived but it was not easy to get a narrow one to allow access for our disabled guests.
Thank you for your comments I hope this answers you queries

By a main road, but quiet at night. Friendly welcome, spacious and modern room with all facilities. Convenient location just away from the centre of the city.. The room was spacious, well organized and very, very clean. Muriel (sp) was very helpful in helping me situate myself in the city.

Room Tip: There are a lot of motels in Invercargill, but why waste time inspecting them

The rooms were very spacious and the Hotel had great cooking facilities. This was particularly good for us as we had a sports team and had to do cooking for many people. The Hotel owners were also extremely helpful in all our dealings with them. Overall it was a great place to stay.

I was lucky enough to stop in to check out the 554 Moana Court Motel in Invercargill last week. The room was spacious, well organized and very, very clean. Muriel (sp) was very helpful in helping me situate myself in the city. There are a lot of motels in Invercargill, but why waste time inspecting them. Just make a reservation at Moana and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are sited equally well.
