Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at the Balmoral Lodge for 5 days for work and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The unit was immaculate with all the comforts of home. The bathroom was modern and well set out, with a kitchen that was fully equipped with all the mod cons. I had a unit that had an upstairs area for the bedroom which had a lovely outlook and the bed was super comfortable. The staff were very welcoming when I checked in with helpful advice of shops close by. The town is an easy walk close by and Queens Park is not far either. I would definitely recommend booking here.

Stayed at the Balmoral Lodge for a week and had a great experience. My accommodation, which was set over two floors, was spacious, quiet and contained all that I needed. The bathroom had a large spa bath and the kitchen area had a microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. Most importantly, a very comfortable bed. Staff all very welcoming and helpful. Good parking and laundry facilities on site. Invercargill city centre and well stocked supermarket a flat walk away. The location also allows easy access to the highway network. From the motel I explored the coast from Stirling Point to Curio Bay aswell as travelling inland for a visit to Queenstown. Fiordland was also within easy reach. Airport was an 8 minute drive away. Would definitely recommend.

Whilst it was a cold Invercargill night my room was warm and comfortable. The rooms are large with a lounge, dining area and kitchen downstairs and the bedroom upstairs. The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

A whole road full of Motels but this was the only one with our dates. We’ve stayed in a lot of different accommodation on our several month trip. This wasn’t one of the good ones. Dreary and dark interiors with old tired fixtures. There are lots of these about and it’s about time NZ owners got refurbishing. Quite noisy from the road and also a visitor in the roof above our bed was rather unpleasant. Apparently it’s mice , how wonderful to hear that from the reception staff. Our biggest issue was the wifi or lack of it. We choose places that have this to keep in contact with the U.K. as phones can be expensive and drain your allowance. The free unprotected wifi worked on and off, even the tv lost reception and came up with a note saying no wifi. Asked for help and was given a password protected private wifi.Still no good, on and off it would go. Mentioned it at checkout and told there was little they could do but it was free. Hardly, all costs are included in your room rate. Also, if it’s so called free or otherwise and doesn’t work it’s no use to anyone. If a motel can’t provide this ‘basic’ service without a hitch then this needs highlighting. You advertise it then you supply it. I suspect it has even and is an issue they fudge over as most people only stay one or two nights and put up with it. Maybe the mice in the roof are chewing the router cabling 😳

Thank you for your feedback, it was nice to speak to you on checkout. We are refurbishing our rooms which was interrupted by Covid and this in an ongoing project for our business. We apologise for the reception staff’s light-hearted comment about mice we certainly do not have mice in our establishment. Your concerns about the Wi-Fi have been raised with our IT department and this is being investigated and the situation is being dealt with, although the alternative given was also not helpful, so thank you for letting us know. We do appreciate all feedback from our guests as there is always room to improve.

The Balmoral room had the bedroom on the mezzanine so had bags of space. It was very well kitted for the 2 of us. Access was easy and it was a reasonable walk inro the centre. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Great motel, would definitely stay here again next time. Clean, spacious, comfy and handy to shops and restaurants. Could have easily slept four adults in this room so great a family with two kids. Real value for money for what you get!
