“Fantastic motel deserving of its high ratings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

We chose the Tower Lodge Motel as it was the #1 on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed...outstanding friendly and helpful service by hosts Dawn and Ray.

We had 2 couples so Dawn offered us a 2 bedroom unit with 1 king and 1 queen bed which was great as these are hard to find.

Great advice about what to see and do in Invercargill. Well located near Queens Park with walkways and excellent Southlands Museum.

Booked from the UK using TA and this was the final night on out NZ road trip. Out of 3 B&Bs and 7 motels we stayed in, this was definitely the best value for money. Very friendly welcome from Ray & Dawn, lots of advice on what we could do locally etc. In the end it was a pity we only had one night there, but all good things have an end – recommended.

This is a clean, comfortable and well equipped Motel which is in a very good location to see Invercargill. Our room wa very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Dawn and Ray were very helpful and provided us with plenty of ideas and advice for our stay there. I would highly recommend this as a good place to stay in Invercargill.
Having travelled around New Zealand for the best part of a year, this was the best motel that we stayed in.

This was our first visit to Invercargill, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay - good, central location, well run clean comfortable units. Very caring proprietors.

After two nights at a 5-star over-priced farm stay the Tower Lodge delivered everything we had expected at our previous accommodation for half the price. From the first welcome to departure, plus organising boat travel to and from Stewart Island Dawn and Ray made us feel as if nothing would be too much to ask. I loved the herb garden, what a lovely touch. The room was immaculate, everything worked and our location nearer the back was very quiet. We loved walking around Queens Park. This was a totally fabulous customer experience. If we visited Invercargill again, this would be our first choice for accommodation.

Room Tip: We found our location was very quiet well back from where you drive in

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.
