“Best of our trip!”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

We went to Invercargill unexpectedly and so without booking - found Birchwood Manor clean, comfortable, conveniently located and generally lovely - and thanks for the dinner recommendation at Kelvin Hotel - it was excellent too!

The one bedroom unit we had was a very good size and had a well equipped kitchennette. The bed was exceptionally comfy nad I probably had teh best night's sleep of the entire holiday here. The TV was good (including Sky), and we found that the price we paid was very good value for our one night here.

Our family had stayed on a previous occasion and enjoyed our time there and so when I needed somewhere to stay with my son, after an operation, this was the obvious choice. David and Sue were very kind and helpful and I was aware they were on hand should a problem arise.
The rooms are very quiet (I sincerely hope my son's rooster alarm on his cell phone did not wake everyone in the complex when it sounded at 1am!) and we had everything we required. A supermarket and a pharmacy are just across the road - very convenient.

Thank you for your time to do this review.
It is very rewarding to get such good comments from repeat guests.
We had no complaints about the rooster alarm so your comment about the quiet rooms stood the test.

Stayed at the Birchwood for 5 nights in January 2013 with our race team whilst competing at Teretonga. Very friendly owners where nothing was a problem, rooms good and beds comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

David and Sue are good tourism professionals but haven't lost friendliness and availability.
Their motel is very quiet indeed and grounds were flourishing with all colour roses.
Our appartment was very spacious and comfortable and exceptionnally clean.
Thank you again for an impromptu stay that allowed us to get a very positive feel of Invercargill, as a town and a community.

We were here on an overnight transit stay prior taking flight to Stewart Island the morning after, and I chose this motel based on many common guests-stay responses, and its proximity to Countdown Supermarket, which is right across the street.
We were initially recommended Busters Crab by Sue but when we reached, the restaurant was filled to the brim. Not knowing what is the next best option, we drove back to seek Sue & David help. They tried calling several popular dining options and it seemed on that Saturday night, all residents of Invercargill had come out to patronise all dining or bar joints.
From the persevering effort, they found us an irish Pub Waxy Shea's for a dinner dining option.

David even kindly agreed to store our heavy luggages in their garage as we went on to Stewart Island for next leg of trip - as there is a limited baggage allowance onboard the flight. As we returned back to Birchwood Manor to collect our luggages, grateful emotions spill-over our normal reserved self and for one brief moments, the photographs we had taken together kinda make us feel that David & Sue are more than just motel operators, they exude the renowned Kiwi hospitality and charm which endeared many overseas travellers.

Room Tip: Depending on the luggages you are carrying, it is advisable to stay on the ground floor if you are...

My wife and I stayed at Birchwood Manor during our holiday from Western Australia. Our hosts were warm, friendly, considerate and very accommodating. They went out of their way to help us send paperwork back to Australia concerning the sale of a property that unexpectedly happened when we were in Invercargill. Just fantastic.

Their rooms are spacious, clean and have excellent amenities and a very comfortable bed. The location of Birchwood Manor is within a comfortable walking distance to everything you need as a holidaymaker, but removed from the noise of the city.

We highly recommend Birchwood Manor, its comfort, its security and, above all, the warmth of its owners.
