“Home from Home”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

We were referred to this motel six years ago by a friend. Since our first stay the place has really grown on us. We visit Invercargill at least once a year and at times up to three times per year for business and would not even think of staying anywhere else.
Fantastic management and the spacious units are very well maintained. At times we have stayed here for up to three months and have always been sorry to leave.

Room Tip: Book well in advance as the place is so popular that it is often fully booked.

I have been staying at this motel on and off since 2007 and it is without a doubt the best accommodation for the price in Invercargill. The service is top notch, the staff very friendly and efficient. The rooms are very comfortable, and the laundry works very well. The motel is central to the main town, yet it is quiet enough for a peace full stay.
The manager and his wife are very helpful and is always on hand to sort out any problems.
I can safely recommend this motel to any visitor to Invercargill.

I booked to stay, as the rating for this place was high. It was advertised on the internet, and later I noticed it was also advertised in an AA catalogue on the Interislander, as having spa baths! The main reason to stay was the spa, as I had travelled straight from Auckland to Invercargill, with no stops on the way. I was disappointed to find out there were no spa baths, and I was not able to get accommodation anywhere else, as the Bluff Oyster Festival was due. Is this a case of false advertising? The sheets are only changed every five days, and the room I had was up a long flight of steps, with a noisy laundry underneath, where you could hear all conversation downstairs from the housemaids, who were loud. The bed was uncomfortable, and when booked the room was $125.00 a night, when leaving I paid $130.00. Found one of the owners to be rude, and pushy!

Room Tip: My bed was uncomfortable, the door was hard to open, so I would not take the room upstairs, maybe ge...

Arrived after a whole days flight to reach Invacargill for the oyster festivities from Whakatane.
On our arrival at the front desk we were welcomed with wonderful friendliness. They were so organized with all our rooms sorted(nine of us in total). The weather lived up to Invarcagill's fresh and brisk Autumn coolness. We entered our room the first thing that hit us was the instant freshness and warmth. The room being down stairs and upstairs apartment one bedroom, with a large dining area, very well supplied beverage caddy, clean kitchen utilities, just to the side the shower & tiolet. There was a large flat screen TV, comfortable lounge chairs, to the side a single bed. Upstairs a generous double bed, very comfortable, (I am pretty fussie about beds), unfortunately no on suite, but all good,we were not inebriated, or physically impaired to manoevre in the dark down the stairs. Management were ever so helpful their southern hospitality number 10. Oh the oyster festivel was moorish as.......a good time had by all. Recommend Ferg Bergers Queenstown.........

Room Tip: Our group had a corner area, very good for slightly noisy folks.

This is a very good property close to the centre of town. Warm, very clean and efficient friendly staff. Nice shower and decent sized lounge. Only slight disadvantage is the fourteen stairs to the bedroom. However when you get there the bed is very comfortable and roomy. There is some early-mid evening traffic noise but only if you open the window. Very good value for the money.

The Balmoral Lodge is conveniently placed and our unit had a separate bedroom and well appointed kitchen, complete with cooker. The staff were very friendly and everything was very clean and tidy. The spa bath was nice too. Would definitely stay here again.

Had a luxury suite and found it extremely spacious and clean. Plenty of room for bags. Bed comfort was average. Our room was by the road and so heard constant traffic noise. Other than small bath towels everything else was provided and we had a great stay. Would stay here again.
