We stayed here on our way to and from Stewart Island. Emily and Leo were fantastic hosts. Happy to pick us up from the airport, friendly & welcoming. The hotel is a great location, and the room was clean, tidy and warm. Great shower & bed too. Would definitely stay there again if I was back through Invercargill.

Excellent Motel. Clean and Tidy, spacious rooms. Has everything you require to be self sufficient, would be an excellent motel if you were doing day trips and want to cook for yourself. Free parking right outside your door. Good location. Friendly and helpful staff.

Excellent motel,scrupulously clean,good sized apartment, comfy bed and friendly hosts. It meets all requirements, good cooking facilities and well priced. It is within easy walking distance of an excellent restaurant, The saucy Chef. Highly recommended. PS some booking sites still say that it only has paying wifi...not so, wifi is free.

Highly recommend the Tower Motel. Very comfortable and clean with good cooking facilities. Close to beautiful Queen's gardens and short drive to the centre of town. Easy to find because of the water tower opposite.

We stayed at the Tower Lodge Motel for two nights and couldn't be happier with this property. From the moment we checked in, our host Emily went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The apartment was clean, spacious and offered all amenities that are of help to travelers, with attention to...

Couldn't fault this place. Good location and easy to find because of the Water Tower. A bit out of town if you want that but close to the suburb of Windsor where you can get most things. Dawn was super friendly and helpful when we checked in, advising on where to go and what to do. A short walk to...

Parking is tight but rooms are big. Very clean. Big bathroom. Great value for the price. I was able to walk to The Saucy Chef which was nice. Lots of people were staying the night but very quiet. I'd stay again if I was in town.

This is a good motel to stay in. It is located right next to the Tower of Invercargill and next to the gardens. City center is a short drive with supermarkets and restaurants. The host was very nice and took time to explain the washing maschine. She offered me a free upgrade to a larger room that had a separate...

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 .
