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.

Comfortable enough room but the bathroom exhaust fan, which comes on with the light, is VERY noisy, room 17 upstairs. The shower water runs cold mid-shower, which is not pleasant at all. To get hot water back, the tap needs to be turned off, then on again. For these 2 reasons we have dropped from 4 stars to 3. The location, as it is with most motels here, is not close to town for walking to restaurants.

Comfortable for one night stay. Stayed on way south. Warm and comfortable. Friendly staff. Stayed in a, studio unit which had everything we needed. Location is just out of town but convenient. Just down from burger King which was handy as we arrived later.

Our accommodation was in one of the adjoining houses - which was very well specced! Very modern and clean and spacious - it was like having a huge house to ourselves. Location also very convenient. Staff were super helpful too, allowing us to store some gear with them for a few days while we visited Stewart Island (we returned and stayed another day following our return to Invercargill).

We stayed in a unit at the back of the motel complex. King size comfy bed, separate lounge/kitchen, all the amenities you could need like a dishwasher, washer/dryer combination. Very quiet and very clean. Shout out to Issie who was warm and welcoming and made our stay a pleasure. Many thanks!!!

We needed a place to stay at short notice ... Geoff couldn't have been more helpful. Room was great ... the Spa Bath was an unexpected bonus. Very convenient for the 2 museums (MotorcycleMecca and Bill Richardson Transport World). If you are planning to stay in Tay Street area we would highly recommend

The host was really friendly and attentive. Our unit was upstairs, well equipped, comfortable and super clean. It was a real pleasure to stay there if only for one night. We will definitely come back and highly recommend this place.

This was a lovely find - very comfortable ... though we had an upstairs unit and you need to mind your head when getting off the loo due to the slant of the ceiling, but a great shower and comfy bed. We'll be back due to the men of group needing to see more of the transport museum.
