“Fantastic Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

We had a fantastic experience .the amenities were spotless. The owner/ managers daughter was looking after the business with her partner . They persisted on the phone to secure our Stuart island ferry and village tour after we arrived . They booked a restaurant and courtesy bus to the venue for our group of travellers (both of which they recommended and were great ). Thanks again :)

Room Type: Self Contained Unit –Comfortable spacious unit for 2 people, Unit contains a King Bed, couch dining table and chairs, 32 inch Flatscreen tv, and full Kitchenette with ceramic cooking hob and microwave, with the additional convenience of a private bathroom and Pleasant Garden surrounds.

Price Paid - $120/night (2 nights)

First Impressions
Arrive to check in, and was warmly greeted,and was offered to join the Top 10 Club, which would either give me an upgrade for this trip, or a reduction in the price paid. As I don't stay with top 10 often I declined.

I was then shown to my unit which is close to the road separated by a small section of trees. In a small block of 3 units. If the road wasnt so close, or the trees were a bit denser it would seem like you were in a small unit in the middle of no where, very peaceful until a loud car or truck goes past at 100km/h.

Bed
The Bed is a King sized bed however it is obvious that more guests sleep on the right hand side of the bed than the left, with a substantial dip when lying in the bed which made it difficult to get to sleep, has an electric blanket on both sides, however view of the TV is obscured by the dining table, requiring me to move the tv cabnet slightly to enjoy TV from the Bed.

Shower
The Shower is hooked up to a LPG instant hot water system, however the pressure is not the greatest.

Room Overall
Overall the room is as described, a self-contained unit with bedding and a kitchenette. They do mention they will only change the towels and bedding on stays more than 2 days, but was surprised to find that the unit had had no attention from staff on the 2nd day.

TV is just a basic Free View system, and the picture doesn't fit on the screen properly, but you can see enough to watch it.

Recently stayed in the new 2 bedroom unit, it was the nicest motel for our whole trip. Very spacious, beautifully decorated, amazing kitchen with a very homely feel. The extra touches were really appreciated. Helpful friendly staff.

We didn't book anywhere to stay during our trip and found this holiday park with powered sites in the Jasons Guide. We were warmly welcomed to a stunning holiday park with gorgeous bathroom facilities, great washing facilities and pretty gardens with well manicured trees. It was a great price for the two of us and just out of the busy town, easy to find and in impeccable condition, we would highly recommend this park as a place to stay!

These units are almost brand new. The surroundings are very pleasant and the landscaping is also new and very effective. A nice touch is the gas barbeque for guests. The park is located just a few minutes’ drive (about 5 kilometres) from the centre of town but in a nice quiet locale. The layout of the room is very thoughtful and the accessories have been tastefully sourced. Recommended.

One of the best of the 9 Top10s (total of 21 Top10 nights) we stayed at during our month in NZ. We stayed 2 nights. Friendly check in and departure, excellent spacious room with great appointments. Clean and tidy. Good kitchenette facilities. Nice holiday park setting without the obvious clutter of being surrounded by a posse of campervans etc. Excellent location on the outskirts of Invercargill in a pleasant rural setting. Highly recommended. David & Bertha

Thanks for the positive review. Am sitting here listening to a Tui singing as I write this reply. being on the edge of the city has its advantages in giving our guests room to spread out as well as several lovely walks in the neighbouring parks. Wake up to the noise of the birds rather than the noise of traffic is what we advertise.

An Excellent setting just outside of the town but within easy driving distance. Staff very friendly and helpful, site is very cosy and pitches are quite close together however we did not find this a problem. We only stayed for one night so did not use all of the facilities but the toilet block looked newly fitted out.
