A stopover on our way to Bluff for an early ferry to Stewart Island. We received a friendly greeting and were allocated clean rooms. The stay was quiet and plenty of parking. We would stay here again !

Enjoy my stay at Monarch.. This time I am a returning with my family. Room is comfortable and value for money. Good to return.

Some thing negative is the early morning biker noise which woken the family . (PS: there is a bike race at Invercargill at that time) , and that is no fault of the hotel.

Room Tip: Family room which have enough bed for everyone ..

We stayed over night in Invercargill on a cold and miserable night during the winter, but we were warm and cosy in one of the refurbished rooms at the Monarch Motel, the room was decorated in a modern but contempory style, and the room was very comfortable and good value for money.

Room Tip: Choose from the range of refurbished rooms.

I stayed at the Monarch Motels for a night while on business in Invercargill. Good location, very clean and tidy rooms, very little road noise or noise from other guests. Wi Fi availably. Very approachable, helpful and friendly staff. I would definitely stay at the Monarch Motel again and recomend it to others.
