This is an excellent motel ! Great value for money, wonderfully friendly proprietors, central location, comfortable rooms with LOTS of extras not found in most motels.
For example, a complete kitchenette corner where you can prepare a meal, or heat up a take-away.
Would recommend most highly !!

I love an immaculately clean motel room, and the Tower Lodge measured up to my highest standards. The furniture and kitchen looked nice, new and attractive. The kitchen had everything in it that I could want. Another highlight for me was a spa tub in the bathroom. The price was a little bit higher than I usually pay, but it was worth it.

The units a very modern and appear to be newly decorated, comfy beds. The kitchen area was very well equipped. The bathroom was very clean and the shower had great water pressure. The owner Ray was very friendly in the office. Although there was road works on the main road there was no noise issue and there was an alternative entrance.

This is what all motels should aspire to be.

The welcome is always warm and friendly. The units are always clean ,well presented and warm !!! A motel that has enough crockery /cutlery/glases so if you have guests they dont have to bring there own. The furnishings are excelant the beds comfortable and all staff from the owners to the room servicing staff are friendly and helpful. Well done Dawn and Ray.

Room Tip: It dosn;t matter which room you stay in they are all excelant.

My husband was taken from Queenstown hospital to Invercargill hospital, and when I arrived on bus Ray was there to collect and welcome me, sorted luggage, and then took me to Hospital. They absolutely saw to my every requirement , took me to the hospital each morning (10 days), and before my husband came from hospital they suggested I change out of small studio room to larger one as they thought he would be more comfortable which was certainly the case, (and we had cooking facilities in larger room etc). It is a small complex but beautifully maintained, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again and recomend to other people, and as I was there for alot the time by myself I felt very safe. Guest laundry facilities AND a cloths line if preferred to dryer! This is very rare.

Room Tip: The complex is a single storey one, in straight line and the morning sun was just glorious.
