Bavarian Motel
Ranked #18 of 33 Hotels in Invercargill
Reviewed 26 May 2013

We stayed one night and found the rooms were extremely clean and tidy. However we found the bed very hard and road noise was very noticeable during the night. It is some distance from central town but that didnt worry us. If you are after cleanliness and value i would highy recommend the hotel. If you are after 4 star luxury i would suggest staying elsewhere.

Room Tip: As far from the road as possible

Thank you for your review of Bavarian Motel. The comfort of the beds is something we always consider when we purchase new ones. We know our guests travel and are well informed about bed comfort. Bavarian Motel appreciates you great comments about cleanliness.
We are becoming aware that the Trip Advisor guest review rating is more important than the outdated Qualmark Star rating system.
We hope the rest of your holiday was enjoyable.

Good motel. Would stay again without hesitation. A bit too far from town to walk but taxi only $15 or thereabouts, plus drivers are friendly and happy to make recommendations for food/drink. Plus, if we drove ourselves one of us would have to be the sober driver. Altogether not a problem being out of town.

Great stay, friendly hosts, motel is away from the hustle and bustle of town, free internet a real bonus plus having a second television in the bedroom was a grand idea. Always good to get rewarded for staying though their reward program as well.

First time visitors to Invercargill. Rooms spacious, clean, comfortable and had the best nights sleep. John and Amanda most helpful. We were traveling on to Te Anau and asked for a recommendation of where to stay and they offered to book ahead for us. Thanks for that, made things so much easier for us once we got to Te Anau. Would stay again and most definitely recommend to friends.

We had a very nice 2 bedroom unit. Kitchen was complete, even has a oven. For dinner we went to a grocery store just down the street and baked our own meat pies for dinner. Everything was clean and tidy. The owners were very helpful. Would stay there again.

John and Amanda are great hosts, with a motel unit to suit your pocket and requirements. We always find the furniture very comfortable. Love the big comfortable beds, which is so important when you are on the road all the time. The motel is in a great location, not far from a supermarket if you wish to cook your own meals. And great when you are heading off to/towards Queenstown.

Room Tip: Tell John and/or Amanda what you are looking for.

Maybe it's just invercargill! But I found the accommodation rather average. It was promoted as 4 star and I've been to a lot of places before this was no 4 star accommodation. The couches were very uncomfortable and the bathrooms felt like a prison cell as the toilet and shower shared the same flooring and it felt like you could just be hosed off in it. On a plus side there was a faint trace of Internet that you could use and a small portion of food for breakfast as well As parking outside the unit and sky channels. Just like to know what I'm in for as the standard of 4 star accommodation is a bit different elsewhere.

Thank you for reviewing our accommodation. I have checked the records and you used the internet without any problems, it appears. The lack of quality and comfort of the couch has not been brought to our attention before, (maybe guests are too polite to say). However, we always listen and will review our future purchases of furniture. Qualmark NZ is an independent organisation which assesses NZ accommodation and we are assessed annually for our standards. Bavarian Motel has been awarded 4+Star for the last 6 years. It would be great if you (hetrogenius) could remove the photo of the outside-garden view, as it is not our motel.
