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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Four couples stayed for two nights. Very clean rooms, large too. Huge TV. Kitchenette with microwave. Across the road is a pub and restaurant. It’s just off the main road but we could have heard a pin drop. Very quiet. Comfortable bed. Tariff matches amenities. Good motel. Recommended.

There is just too many positive things I can say about this Motel. The staff were amazing and very helpful. The room we had was large and extremely clean. It had a wonderful kitchenette. The bed was mega comfortable. There was a nice hotel across the road with great food. Also they offer a free laundry for guests, which we used. Thank you again for the wonderful service you offer and at a reasonable price. Very happy.

Good size room but the room was very tired and badly needs money spent on it. The bathroom is very dated and run down. Wallpaper peeling off wall, tap coverings peeled off, windows that are hard to open and shut. Other little things need replacing ie the ironing board cover. Lights not working although it could be because bulb needs replacing something housekeeping should check. There were only two hangers in the wardrobe again something housekeeping should be checking and replacing. The star rating of 4 is too high, 3 at best.

Great service upon check in, provided with real milk. Very large room, modern tidy, all mod cons. Lady at reception so helpful, toying with the idea of riding around NZ next summer, and if I do will definitely stay here again.

Room a bit dingy (poor lighting) but perfectly clean. Stayed 2 nights and housekeeper gave us fresh towels and toiletries. But don’t stay here unless you have earplugs as the bar/restaurant across the road was excessively noisy both nights we stayed(Fri/Sat) until 1am

Best motel in Invercargill. Most motels in town are showing their age. Homestead still got it, however a lick of paint won’t be far away. Clean as a whistle and not far from the CBD. Plenty of parking. A stones throw from the wonderful Queens Park Gardens. Recommend.

Perfectly adequate for the price. Our room was a little dingy off a walkway and was very tired around the edges, but it was clean and warm. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was plenty of parking. I also received a text advising the room was ready prior to arrival which was a nice touch.

I’ll admit, I was a bit dubious when one of my team recommended staying at this motel, but what a find. Great staff, great accommodation, great breakfast. Huge apartments at a very reasonable price, clean and well presented. There are plenty of dinner options nearby, I highly recommend this place and will stay again next time I am in town.

One of the best motels l have stayed in for a long time. stayed in a studio well appointed good bed good couch to sit on good size TV everything u need for a good stay good friendly staff. Well done team. Lovely pub a cross the road but had a disappointing meal piad $17 for 1/2 a bowl of sea food chowder and 1 slice of toast. And $22 for a burger about the size of a slider and a few chips had to go to mackers for a feed afterwards so eating elsewhere.

We had a double studio room. It was a comfortable room. The shower is over the bath so if you had mobility issues you had to be very very careful. Our problem was we were in an accessway and it was noisey. People walking past laughing and talking all hours. The homestead pub is just over the road and the live band were turned up loud til 12.30am. People shouting, yelling, laughing, crying at the pub til early hours of morning. We could hear the people moving about above us, and the person in room next to us coughing and everything. When the neighbours phone went off early in the morning it woke me up as it sounded like it was in our room. A dreadful nights sleep.

I apologize for this experience which is very disappointing as we always strive to make every visit here the very best possible. Though it is sometimes hard to control outside property disturbances we do have available 24 hour on call assistance and more than happy to assist whenever alerted to try and make sure everyone staying has a peaceful night’s accommodation. We certainly would appreciate the opportunity to be of service again sometime in the future Kind regards Natalie & the Team
