Reviewed 13 February 2013

Dianne our host gave us a warm welcome on a grey rainy morning. She upgraded us to a 2 bedroom unit, so my teenage son was very comfortable. The unit was spacious and very comfortable. Excellent kitchen appliances and very well equipped. As the weather was bad we stayed one night and cooked a nice meal in our kitchenette. Spotless and clean. Will definitely recommend staying at 388 on Tay. Thanks Dianne, we had a wonderful stay at your motel.

I stayed at this motel while I was in Invercargill for business. I was so glad I did. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Rooms immaculate and well looked after. Cosy bed with great pillows. Big Tv in bedroom. Well equiped kitchen, if you decide to self cater. Had a brilliant sleep. Would recommend and stay again.

Our room had a well equipped kitchenette and a wonderfull bathroom with spa bath and separate shower. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. We did hear some road noise, which disturbed my husband unfortunately.
I would have liked two suitcase racks and to have had free wireless internet.

We stayed 2 nights in a 1bd. spa unit after reading other reviews. This is high quality accommodation which has been thoughtfully designed for the user,not the motel owner/operator. Extremely comfortable,new ,quiet,spacious, clean and user friendly .Thanks to the published reviewers. Many satellite tv channels not the usual 5. We would certainly recommend this motel as a base to explore the Invercargill/Bluff/Stewart Island area.

Room Tip: I BD SPA with ground private outdoor area away from road I would think even the room close to road...

We stayed 1 night at the 2 bedroom unit and ABSOLUTELY loved it! The place was impeccably clean, neat and the hostess was so welcoming that we wished we could have stayed longer. She was very helpful, friendly and was quick to be at reception when we arrived. Loved the stay at 388 Tay St and would highly recommended it to anyone needing a place to stay.

As a couple, we stayed 2 nights in the executive suite and found it one of the best stays during our NZ tour. The bedroom room is very quiet, the spa is great, the kitchenette is very well outfitted and the unit is exceptionally clean. Much of the accommodation in Invercargill seems to be on Tay Street. It's not a central location but not much accommodation in this city is in the CBD area. This doesn't seem to deter too many as most motels had 'no vacancy' signs up during our stay in early January so I suggest booking ahead.

Room Tip: The executive room is worth the extra cost.
