Older motel with a kitchenette but it was well maintained and well equipped. The owner was informative and helpful, the place was clean, and the internet worked well. 10 minutes walk to I site & Botanic garden. I would stay again if I was in Invercargill .

The motel was easy to find-it's opposite the water tower. The room was spacious and clean and the receptionist very helpful. As we only stayed one night on the way to Te Anau we didn't have time to look at the park close to the motel, but it looked lovely. We did go to Bluff-NZ's lands end. It's less than...

If you have to stay in Invercargill this is good value. Friendly welcome but more importantly the room was extremely clean and fresh, well appointed and very comfortable. I'd stay here again if I had to stay in Invercargill.

A very warm welcome when we arrived, a comfortable unit with separate living and bedroom, good cooking facilities, spa bath, and guest laundry; what more could you want? Breakfast delivered to your unit? Tick. Free local calls? Tick. WiFi that works reliably? Tick. A great place to stay.

This is beyond doubt the most comfortable stay of our trip so far and the friendliest welcome on checkin. Our 1 bedroom was spotless, tastefully decorated, quality fittings with comfy bed and pillows and the best shower so far. The kitchenette is well stocked with a well designed fridge. This stay represents excellent value.

Check in was friendly and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The kitchenette was well equipped. The location is close to the centre of town. Queens Park and the Museum are a short walk away. It is really worthwhile to spend some time in the wonderful Queens Park.
