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.

Invercargill is about as far south as you can go in New Zealand but it’s worth the trip to stay at Villa Rouge. We were welcomed by hosts Noel and Diana on a balmy evening and given a tour through this delightful B&B. Guests have the sole use of their bedrooms/bathroom, dining room, lounge and library. So many places to relax and enjoy Diana’s stunning decor. We visited with friends and loved our roomy bedrooms with high quality linens as well as the large bathroom with standalone shower and amazing tub. There was an ample supply of tea/coffee with extra treats of homemade cookies and chocolates. Breakfast, prepared by Noel, included bacon, eggs as well as homemade rhubarb compote and preserves. We wish we could have spent longer here but we hope to be back.

Charming and delightful bed and breakfast in the southern most region of the South Island. The owners, Noel and Di, have done an excellent job anticipating your every need, as well as being warm, welcoming and engaging hosts. We can not recommend this guest house enough! Can’t wait to go back.

We stayed 2 nights at Villa Rouge and had a wonderful time . Hosts Dianna and Noel were so accommodating and helpful at all times . The breakfast is excellent and there was always yummy home made treats on offer. The old restored home is beautiful and you get the use of bedroom, sitting room and the library for your personal use whilst you stay . There is a vast collection of dvd’s available and we enjoyed staying in both nights with a bottle of wine and watched a movie on the large projector screen in the sitting room . I would highly recommend staying here if you are passing through Invercargill

This accommodation was beyond all expectations - from the beautiful warm welcome by Dianna & Noel through to the lovingly prepared breakfast on the day of our departure. An accomodation highlight of our lives with hosts who very quickly felt like long lost friends. The villa is an absolute treasure trove of French flare, art, artistry and very warm hospitality. We left wondering if it was all a very beautiful dream - can’t wait to return.

Villa Rouge is a beautifully maintained, tastefully furnished and extremely comfortable accommodation. The personalised service, home made treats, open fires, comfortable bed and generosity of hosts made it a special treat on the two occasions we stayed. Easy access to the city and off street parking. Don't consider anywhere else if you want true southern hospitality with the bonus of fun and laughter with the hosts.

Our friendly hosts, Diana and Noel, made us very welcome and provided us with lovely breakfast as well as a few little goodies. They were very kind, attentive, interested and interesting hosts. Noel set us up with a movie to watch each night. Diana helped us find a very nice restaurant on our first night. They are long-time Invercargill residents and have done an amazing job of restoring and fitting out his old home. We really enjoyed our stay there in what is seems to be an increasingly rare traditional B&B.

The accommodation and hosts where just amazing. Noel and Diana where just awesome, very kind and friendly with no pressure.

They've both done an amazing job with the presentation with tastefully decorated rooms and furnishings.

I would totally recommend this B&B, and would certainly go back and stay in a heart beat!

You Rock!!!

This is a gorgeous B&B. Immaculately clean, comfortable bedroom, well-appointed washroom, large lounge and reading rooms, beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. Lovely breakfast. The hosts are very kind and knowledgeable. This B&B gets a well-deserved perfect rating for many good reasons.

We had the warmest greeting from Noel and Diana for our stay in their beautiful home. It was the best stay of our whole trip. Delicious home cooked breakfast and real coffee, what a treat. Staying at Diana and Noel's gorgeous house was a real highlight. We loved chats we had and the movie and cake .yum!
Such a lovely stay. Thank you from Betty and Peter.

does it have private bathrooms
Answer from Noel B
Invercargill, New Zealand5 contributions
Hi Outdoorsman We have two guest rooms each with queen beds. These two rooms share the bathroom. For one guest, or for a couple the bathroom would be theirs exclusively. We would not book the second room. If there is a party of say two couples travelling together the bathroom would need to be shared. Hope this clarifies. Regards Noel B.
