“Moteliers of NZ book now for a Masterclass”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

This is without question the best motel I have ever stayed in. The accommodation is immaculate, the location is great and the hosts are attentive and genuinely friendly.
When we confesses that we hadn't seen The World's Fastest Indian, they lent us the DVD for the night for free (great movie).
The hotel is on the corner of Queens Park which from our reckoning is Invercargill's jewel in the crown. 200 acres of beautiful parkland with an aviary, animal park, stunning gardens and a fitness trail.
Our room was spacious, comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean.

From twelve Motels stayed in this was without question the best.The accommodation was well appointed,and it was good to have a seperate bedroom away frm the living area.The standard of equipment was first class and covered every need.Location was very good and it was possible to walk out for dinner with plenty of choice.The owners are both very pleasant and helpful and were always on hand to offer advice and provide relevant information.

We arrived for a night before embarking on our cruise from Bluff. From the minute we arrived until we left Dawn and Ray were simply the best. The welcome cookie and milk were a lovely touch. The unit was spotless. We returned for a day and night after the cruise to the same hospitality. Ray collected all his guests from the cruise drop-off and another guest staying elsewhere commented that we were all on first name terms such was the convivial feeling between hosts and guests.
Do spend time in Invercargill - it's as home (England)used to be and has very good shopping and sightseeing.
Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts from lifts to town, to wi-Fi to recommendations for dinner.
Genuinely lovely people and I would love to return some day for longer.

Room Tip: If you want a bath ask for a spa unit - well worth the little extra charge.

Have stayed in this motel several times over the last 3 years and find the hospitality, helpfullness, attention to detail unequalled.
Nothing is a problem. Handy to Queens park for a run in the morning and to Aquatic centre.for a relaxing swim.

Arrived late after taking the Catlins Tour but could not have been more helpful on reception. Tidy, clean, accommodation and very good value for money. Perfect for the short stay we had in Invercargill.

We stayed at the Tower Lodge on our trip around the south Island.
What a welcoming place to stay the owners were very very helpful with everything we needed. The Motel was spotless. I felt it had a homely feel which is nice when travelling for a considerable time. It is placed near queens park the golf club, the museum were all within close proximity. We had a 1 bedroom unit. Well done to the tower Lodge I recommend it to all who are looking

We recently travelled extensively through New Zealand, staying at a range of accomodation options. The Tower Lodge Motel comes out top in terms of value for money. The room was spotlessly clean and well maintained. On checking in, the visitor gets a very thorough briefing of things to do in Invercargill, complete with brochures. Management and staff clearly aim to provide a very high level of service---all given with a smile.
