No one from our neck of the woods goes to Invercargill . Te Anau is as South as anyone would venture as a tourist from India . We had to spend a day at Bluff for the Shark dive and decided to book the motel .
reasons for booking
1] very forthcoming response on the email , we were booked instantly without even divulging credit card numbers .
2] the rates for a family unit were very reasonable
3] seemed to be placed in a quiet corner of Tay street - the main road . No problems if you have a rental car
Reasons for recommendation
1] Very helpful front desk staff . The shark dive got cancelled because of high gales and they did their best to console and humour us with alternate sightseeing plans [ we had made none ourselves ] . It was crashing disappointment as 5 years ago a very similar weather cost us the Shark Dive at Gaansbai [ South Africa ] . Full marks to the very friendly and helpful staff .
2] The room was very comfortable and the car could be backed right up to the front and back door .
3] We had to make many distress calls to the Shark Dive Operator at Bluff trying to salvage a ruined programme somehow [ the next day ] . The motel did not charge us anything for the calls probably sensing our hopeless predicament . Greatly appreciate the human touch in such a huge hotel where bad weather is far more commonplace than clear skies .
