What a great place! Clark was super helpful with our booking changes and our bags and that made a huge difference to our stay in the south. Everything was in the perfect place in each room and so clean and pleasant. It would be the best motel I’ve ever stayed in - across several countries! Can’t recommend Monarch Motel enough. Fabulous!!!

Monarch Motel is well situated in Invercargill, access is from the SH and also a side street. I had an urgent unexpected trip to the city because a family member was hospitalised and Monarch stood out as being convenient and a very fair cost. On arrival, I was immediately told an upgrade would be granted at no additional cost, and my explanation that I really had no idea of a definite departure date was accepted very readily, with payment on the spot not required. Motel itself was spotless, rooms are serviced daily. These are extremely well appointed with full kitchen and all appliances/dining items anyone could ever need. Eventually my stay was fifteen days due to complications medically, but this stay proved 'easy' for me, quiet, a most friendly and understanding manager and I would not hesitate to stay there again, plus recommend the complex to prospective travellers.

Booked for 3 nights with a group of 28 friends, took the money then double booked room every night. Got offered fold out bed, & a bed in spa suite with terrible springs. Check your bookings- he refused any responsibility for double dipping. Lucky we had good mates who helped us out

Response from Clark Whelan, General Manager at Monarch Motel
Responded 28 Feb 2021
Hi Kerry O We are sorry that you did not have a good experience. We also had a very hard time when your group was with us. Your tour group booked 11 rooms for 28 guests with the intention that guests would be sharing. We provided what was requested and paid for. We actually supplied an extra two rooms that were not paid for. I would suggest your displeasure is more fairly shared with the managers of your tour. Not us who were provided what was requested and more
