“Great motel!”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

This motel in Invercargill is not only great value for money but is exceptionally clean, very well equipped, close to everything (including the beautiful Queens Gardens) and the managers very friendly and knowledgable on the local area. The attention to detail is wonderful...even down to a local paper being left at your door in the morning. Highly recommended!!!

Whilst the rooms themselves are not spectacular, they are all clean, tidy & as well equipped & comfortable as any motel we have stayed in in NZ. What makes this one different & much better than most others is the care & attention of the owners who can't do enough to help. Quite a refreshing change from the usual motel in NZ nowadays, all of which now seem to be run by either casual/part time staff or new 'Asian' landlords!

Dawn and Roy were excellent hosts, insuring the two bedroom suite/house that we stayed in met our needs to host a business meeting. Everything was pristine, arrangements were made to provide us breakfast on the morning we left. Great people, great location and a great value.

Room Tip: Be sure to state what you are looking for, a single, a suite a suite with kitchen and patio.

Stayed one night and had a pleasant experience...the hosts were very affable and helpful in finding us a great restaurant for dinner...the room was immaculate...a little noisy with cars on street and in parking lot but overall very quiet place...would recommend for a stay

Room Tip: just a short walk from the beautiful Queen's gardens

We recently stayed for two nights as part of a family celebration. Dawn and Ray were very welcoming, very hospitable and friendly. Our unit was clean, modern, comfortable and we could not fault it. We definitely recommend Tower Lodge Motel and would stay here again without hesitation.

We stayed for two nights at the Tower Motel during our southern holiday. the Tower motel was (by far) the best motel we had in 10 days of travelling (and the cheapest)...Centrally located.. close to the gardens and museum.. and Invercargill township. Recently updated...and very good service with fresh towels and modern in every respect...you wont be disappointed., nothing has been forgotten. Take the advice of a New Zealander on holiday ! Dont forget to see the fastest Indian motorcycle at the local hardware store...and the Museum is definitely worth a visit. Also ask the motel owner about what must be the worlds largest Truck Museum...right in town. Personal viewing can be arranged as its not actually open to the public yet.
All in all a very good holiday destination. Rob

Painful check in which the staff member still messed up so we needed to spend more time the next day. But fine otherwise. Nice shower. Spacious living room. Would have liked a king bed given we were in the deluxe spa suite.

TowerLodge, Owner at Tower Lodge Motel, responded to this review, 20 March 2014
Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We are extremely sorry for your slow check in. That is out of character for our staff and business. All our spa bath units have queen beds but we do have king beds in our standard units.
We look forward to the opportunity of hosting you again in the future.
