Couldn’t fault our stay at all. Room was well priced, extremely clean, had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows. Hotel is at a very convenient location. Parking is around the corner but this doesn’t bother me at all as it is secure.
Stayed one night and was so glad to be leaving the next morning after a terrible night trying to sleep. The rooms are spacious and clean but there is a lot of visible damage to walls and cupboard surfaces. Looks like they were last done up 30 years ago at least: My daughter’s towel had black marks all over it and the face cloth was full of holes! Every time someone in a room above flushed the toilet through the night you could hear the water running through the pipes. There is no extractor fave in the bathroom so after showers the room was extremely hot and stuffy. We would have opened windows except it was very noisy outside with cars drag racing up the Main Street, tipped off with council street cleaners at 6am! Windows very thin and not reducing noise and no black out curtains either so very light at night and in the morning. For the same price we booked into some brand new serviced apartments around the corner. For the rates being charged this hotel needs a serious update.…
Great stay. Loved the location in central Invercargill. Spacious , clean and comfortable rooms. Clean Bathrooms with excellent water pressure. Kettle, tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the room. Room service available. Bar and Restaurant onsite (didn't get a chance to try). We stayed at Kelvin hotel before and after our trip to Stewart island and it was a good base for the start and end of our adventure. Taxi stand outside the hotel or the reception can have a taxi booked for you if you need to get to the airport. Would definitely stay again when in Invercargill.
Sadly I have stayed here before and had a great experience. This time it was awful as I discovered the walls are very thin and you can hear everything people are saying next door. On one side I had a really loud tv and on the other a mum with a screaming baby and two kids. Two nights of this was awful. Plus the toilet in this room was in a cupboard not in the bathroom. On my last morning there was no buffet so instead I had a very overpriced continental breakfast.
Recently viewed hotel with a view to booking room Was shown couple of rooms by helpful member of staff. Asked if they took Gold Card discount but when lady enquired with a male, who appeared to be her manager, in a rude manner, infront of us he told her room was already cheap what did we expect. We couldnt believe his arrogant manner so stuff that wasnt staying there. As it turned out we booked into the Ascot Park Hotel wow what a place a million miles better than the kelvin and we got it cheaper.
This hotel has a great central location, free laundry for guests on the 5th floor and a great breakfast. The room had no air conditioning and a radiator was on in the hallway in summer making our room sweltering. The porter was absent so we were not offered valet parking. While we were across the road parking our vehicle we were told by the duty manager that our bags would be taken up to our room. When we returned we found our bags abandoned in the foyer unattended right by the front door to the street. We are lucky our bags were not stolen.
Fairly nice hotel but a very poor visit for us. No valet parking (apparently the porter was away?) and after passing the manager our bags who said he would move the bags into our room, we had to drive a block over to a carpark building before walking back to the hotel. Luckily we caught the one part of the day that wasn’t raining. When we got back to the hotel we found our bags sitting unattended in the lobby right by the main entrance. Our electronics bag with MacBook, iPhones and various tech items was sitting right on the top. Feeling so blessed we didn’t lose the lot to some opportunist passing by. Was told we could take our own bags up afterwards (had already guessed that one). Rooms were fairly nice. Washing machine and dryer available which was very handy. Apparently has a bottle store and gym but we didn’t use these facilities. On a different day, had there been a full staff in attendance, maybe things would have been different, but as it happened I can’t say our visit was very satisfactory. …
We were pleasantly surprised at how good this hotel was. The staff and restaurant were great. Recommend cushions for those cavernous lounges/chairs in the bar area. Unless you're tall, hard to get back support. The room was spacious and very comfortable (room 506), and the bed firm.
We stayed here for one night en route from a cruise on Doubtful Sound towards a morning ferry from Bluff for Stewart Island the following morning. Friendly welcome at reception and we were upgraded to the sixth floor into a spacious corner double room (#601) with an en-suite (spa bath, twin showers and basin), separated by a louvre-door partition from the rest of the bedroom. Very clean and had every amenity you’d expect. The hotel was full for the night but we wouldn’t have known it! It was very quiet and we had a very comfortable bed. Great view over Invercargill and very central to the city. Parking was easy, free and secure at a nearby parking building. We ate in the restaurant - steak for me and roast lamb for Mr S - very good, but perhaps a bit pricy... The next morning we had cooked breakfast - all was great. Would stay again.…
We dined at Invercargills Kelvin Hotel Restaurant last night we enjoyed a Wonderful meal I highly recommend the pork cheek entree which is seriously good Emma looked after us so well also Great dining
