“Comfiest beds in Southland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2008

From the outset booking my stay was smooth and hassle free.
Diane and Stuart (moteliers) were lovely and friendly and were a wealth of knowledge for a first timer in Invercargill. (Plus they lent me a ladder for 3 days for a renovation project I was working on, godsend!)
The motel units were warm and comfortable, a real home away from home, so to speak and the beds were unreal! Slept like a baby every night (the electric blankets were very nice!!).
Breakfast was a nice touch not always provided in motels and definitely not expected at such a low tariff. The Samsung LCD's made watching the Bledisloe Test on Sky much more enjoyable!
All round a great experience and will definitely be calling in again for my next trip to Invercargill.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2008

If you are going to book a place for a few days in Invercargill, you probably won't beat the Tayesta. I came off a 36 hour trip and saw that the place I'd booked was on motel row and looked much like many others. Like many motels in NZ it was less than brand new construction but upon closer inspection, I noticed that it was meticulously maintained. Absoultley everything was in perfect order. The wireless signal was powerful and the proprietors were special people.
Days later I stayed at a cute looking place on a lake for twice as much and it didn't compare to the comfort of the Tayesta. Money doesn't always buy better. This place was a great deal!

Stayed February 2008
