This period house has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is a comfortable B&B. My sister and I stayed for one night and loved the Rhino room , we slept well and were served a delicious breakfast in the grand dining room. Trish and Ray are lovely hosts (and Buster) and I highly recommend a stay at Safari...

The home is a restored Victorian mansion that oozes character and charm, not to mention African treasures that Trish and her husband brought back with them from their five-year stay in Mozambique.

Very friendly hosts who went out of their way to...

From the moment we arrived at this gorgeous guest house I knew we would love it. We were in town for the annual Burt Munro Challenge, which is a motorcycle extravaganza in Invercargill. On our arrival we were greeted by the lovely hosts, Trish is very responsive and accomodating to her guests needs. We stayed in a beautiful and luxe...

This lodge was just perfect for our stay in Invercargill. The rhino room was lovely and bed very comfortable.
