“No. 1 Choice in Invercargill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2011

We recently stayed at a 3 bedroom house provided by the motel a couple of doors away which they own, it is fantastic, huge in size and for 7 of us was the most perfect location for hockey only about 200m down the road from the turf. We were also within easy walking distance to the rugby stadium The attention to detail was great, the house was serviced daily, and left spotless,very warm with 2 great heat pumps, tvs in every room just about, and a lovely big spa bath. The staff are very friendly and willing to help in anyway they can.
The rate was also very reasonable. Thank you for making our stay in Invercargill very memorable, will definately be recommending you to everyone, absolutely ideal for large groups. Our friends had a unit in the motel itself and they were just as pleased with their facilities Cheers Roslyn

Room Tip: House is down long driveway, and you will get a very peaceful sleep in very comfortable beds

This is a well-kept typical hotel. Very comfortable rooms, but nothing out of the ordinary.

We enjoyed our stay here on our way through town.

Stayed here for one night as it was the best online deal at the time. Everything fine, without any wow factor. Some road noise as room faced main road.

Maybe not, but I have not seen one better.

We stayed in a larger two bedroom unit across a small street from the main complex. Just amazing. Our trip was a stop over en-route to Stewart Island. To have so many comforts to just relax in the room at night made it perfect.

The massive Tele to the spa bath were great additions. Every detail had been thought of in the kitchen. The bed was so comfy I had the best sleep ever.

At risk of raising your expectations to high, I will stop now.

The place is about 15 minutes walk from town. And 5 minutes from Luvlee, a take away with the twist of being home cooked food. Just a note, if you want bubbles to sip in the spa bath, there is no booze in the supermarkets. You have to go to a bottle shop.

We found this motel on our previous trip to New Zealand. Our intial email enquiry was slow to be answered and we were becoming concerned. When the reply did come the reason for the delay was made clear. We happened to have chosen a particularly busy weekend in Invercargill, this motel was full and the owners had been ringing round their competitors to see if they had any vacancies. That is what I call service. By juggling our dates we were able to stay there and very pleased we were that we did. Generous rooms, well equipped and very comfortable. Invercargill was on our itinerary for this trip so there was only one place to stay. They have now put some more single storey units just across the road and they are to the same high standard as those in the main block

We stayed just one night at this motel, and found it to be fine.
Invercargill isn't quite on the top of the list of touristy places in NZ so I had mixed expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the motel and the standard of the nearby shops and restaurants.

Clean, tidy, modern, quiet off the street motel. We booked off the street after being very let down from another motel in invercargill. Owner where more than happy to accoadate us at the last minute, units had plenty of room and would diffentlly stay there again.
