Our second trip down here and we automatically booked this motel again. The rooms are very spacious, clean and have all the amenities needed. Laundry is also available. Easy walking to may places, the owners and staff are super friendly and will store your excess luggage if you go to Stewart Island. (They also have a cottage on Stewart Island if you are looking !) Will be be back, thanks Tony and the team there

Lovely accommodation with friendly helpful owners and staff. The suite had recently been renovated and decorated and was very clean throughout. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was nice and quiet. Unit has smallish kitchen but as we only had breakfast there this wasn't a problem. We enjoyed our time in Invercargill so much that we stayed an extra night. Very good value and we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed overnight, easy to find, close to town, supermarket, petrol station. Very clean, huge spacious unit, only let down, no cooking facilities. Had a great sleep, very quiet considering Hotel seemed full and on a major road. Staff very friendly and helpful, would stay again.

I was allocated a room in the new wing of this motel. The room was spotless being new. The room had double glazing so was quiet. The large screen TV was paired with Netflix, SKY TV, and regular free to air channels. The kitchen was limited with only a microwave so the ability to cook was not great. I also found the bed was not as comfortable and many other options.

I’ve stayed in a number of the rooms here over the last couple of years. All rooms are large and have super comfy beds. Small kitchenettes allow you enough space to do your own breakfast or a microwave dinner. Showers have a transparent domed roof on them which stops the room steaming up which is great, my only negative is the low flow rate from shower it does the job but you feel like cranking the water up! Speedy free internet. Walking distance to restaurants, Queens Park, the swimming pool. $20 taxi ride from airport.

Wonderful place to stay in Invercargill. Room was very large and lovely bed. Dorothy was very friendly and helpful. Easy walking distance to most of the Invercargill attractions. We particularly enjoyed visiting the Burt Munro display and the gardens.

Stayed one nigh and really enjoyed this Motor Lodge. Close to everything that is on offer in Invercargill. Very clean quiet rooms and the staff are super friendly. Some pride shown in this ownership as everything looks like it is maintained to the highest degree. If you need a place to stay this is the place.

Situated close to the main shopping hub. The motel has very clean large rooms with a large comfortable bed. Even though the Motel is on a main road, it is extremely quiet. The Staff are hard working and very friendly. Tony and Dorothy do a great job and should be proud of their accomplishments.
