“Good value for money”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We stayed for one night in Lovett Lodge which is a little bit far away from downtown of Invercargill. The accommodation is rather old but this is okay.

As the lodge wasn’t fully booked a complimentary upgrade was given to us. However rooms are rather small compared to other accommodations we had during our trip.

The advantages of the motel are as follows:
- Tasteful and complimentary breakfast
- Free WLAN
- Nice owner

For a stopover the Lovett Lodge is pretty good.

Thank you for choosing to stay at Lovett Lodge B&B. We aim to provide warm & friendly hospitality, complimentary continental breakfast that I'm glad you enjoyed. We are in the process of refurbishing the complete Lodge including all the bathrooms and guest lounge and dining room areas, having completed four of our rooms including the two ensuite rooms so far. Thus enhancing our guests stay & adding even better value for money.

A group of us stayed the night and found it to be all we needed. Marie was really helpful and made the booking easy for our needs. Breakfast was great and bed was comfortable. We had an ensuite room and was nice and warm. Would return again. Good value for money.

Our host Marie was lovely. We arrived wet and cold from riding our bikes in the rain and we were warmly welcomed with hot showers and a warm room. I would highly recommend Lovett lodge. Thanks Marie x

I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Lovett Lodge and Maree's warm and friendly hospitality. Our coal fired radiator system throughout the lodge really helps to keep the lodge nice & cosy. Pleased you were able to have nice hot shower and warm yourselves up after getting caught in rain shower. Thank you for choosing to stay at Lovett Lodge, the warm & friendly B&B.

A rest home in an earlier life, Lovett Lodge is just off the main highway north (State Highway 6) heading toward Lumsden and Queenstown in Duke Street. This is just three blocks north of the delightful Queens Park. Visiting in mid-November, the nights were still chilly enough for the management to be running the boiler that feeds the radiators in the rooms and corridors, so it was very snug. Room 8 was perfect. A nice comfy and warm single bed, and a writing desk that was big enough for a lap top. Connecting to the free wireless internet was simply a case of typing in the code. For backpackers or those going tramping, the in-room radiators can be used for drying damp clothes, so that is a bonus and at $65 per night (including a Continental breakfast), it was a bargain. The large lounge and sunroom were also very comfy and for the nerds there's a communal PC which some young fellow was playing computer games on for hours on end. The welcome is a typically warm Southland one and Marie could not do enough for us. Oh, and there's a cute black kitten that is as friendly as its owners.
