“lovely quiet motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We stayed at this great little motel earlier in the year and really enjoyed the home from home atmosphere. The closeness to Queens Park is a real advantage. The owners are extremely helpfull and being at the end of a cul de sac ensures that it is quiet and that you will get a good nights sleep.

Thanks Chris for taking out time to review our motel. We are glad that you found the motel quiet and that you had a peaceful nights sleep.Queens Park gardens out our back gate is always a delight especially in the spring. All the best and hope we will see you again soon.

We stayed here during the Bluff Oyster festival, in a 2 bedroom unit. The Hosts were friendly and helpful, and made us feel welcome.
Our apartment was very clean and warm. The unit was a good size and with 4 adults in it we didn't feel at all cramped. The beds were comfortable and the unit was well equipped.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and would recommend to any one wanting good clean accommodation at a reasonable price

Room Tip: Didn't see a fitness centre, but can't remove rating.

Yes, our apartments are clean and warm with comfortable beds and the units are well equipped.Our staff do a wonderful job in cleaning the rooms and I will again pass this compliment on to them.
We have never advertised that we had a fitness centre, but we have a running track in the school grounds next door and walking track with exercises in the park throught the back gate.

We are really happy that you all were able to enjoy the Oyster festival and that you may return again in the future. Thank you for taking time out to comment on our own Queens Park Motels.
All the best

A clean, comfortable and very quiet motel situated next to the beautiful Queens Park. Great for our group of swimmers who were accommodated in a variety of units and this all suited our needs. Kitchen was well equipped in each unit and the hosts were very helpful. Close to the city centre and to Splash Palace as well as supermarkets. Thank you very much for hosting us.

We were happy that you found our motel location very quiet and clean for your visiting group of swimmers. The cleaning staff take pride in keeping the units clean and well equipped and we have passed this feedback on to them.
It was a pleasure in hosting a well behaved group of athletes and we look forward to seeing your group in the not to distant future.

These clean, well-equipped units are adjacent to the lovely Queens Park and walking distance to the i-Site and town center. The area is very quiet and the hosts, Mark and Maureen Gane, most friendly and helpful. The free washing machine and internet terminal should also be pointed out. Highly recommended!

We arrived about 7.00pm, the first time in Invercargill. We just wanted a quiet motel in a green and pleasant spot. So lucky to stumble across the Queens Park Motel where we had more than we could have asked for. Because we arrived late, we were charged even less for one night's accommodation ! Not only was the internet free and easily available, but also free washing ( small charge for an excellent drier ), lovely hand cream in the bathroom and a good bed. Maureen offered to look after our washing so we could go to a restaurant. We were helped in every way to find what we wanted to see in the city the next day and given suggestions for other places to stay on our travels which were excellent.Thank you Mark and Maureen for by far the most helpful and the lowest rate of any place we stayed in New Zealand.

The Motel has large, very clean rooms and the Proprietors are very friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful, with the Motel backing on to a beautiful large park and Golf Course, plus its only a 5 minute drive into the CBD.

Whilst travelling through the South Isaland we made the a fundemental error of assuming we could arrive in Invercargill without pre-booking accomodation - Wrong! The town was booked out and we ended up staying at really terrible bed and breakfast about 7 kms out of town. That night we got on line and found the Queens Park Motel, rang Mark and explained our predicament. Luckily he had just had a cancellation for the next few days so could take us the next morning. They even got our unit ready earlier so we could check in by 10:00am - service!

On arrival, nothing was too much trouble. Mark took us through all the things we should do whilst in Ivercargill. I said we wanted to fly over to Stewart Island the next day - he said "no problem tell me when and for how long and I'll organise for you" half an hour later tickets etc in hand Mark was back at the unit with travel arrangements all done. Easy!

The Motel itself is an older style but clean and tidy. Good telly with sky. Free internet and big comfortable bed. Most importantly, its very quiet as it is off the main road. Beautiful Queens Park just out through the back gate.

If you are travelling to Invercargill and want service, peace and quiet but comfortable then you have to go and see Mark and Maureen at the Queens Park. Thanks guys you saved us from the most horrible B&B expereince!
