“Fantastic stay in room 18 with the tower view !!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2017

To Emily & Leo ,

Good day to you.

First of all , thanks for waiting for us to check-in on that day. We understand that it was considered very late. We were basically drove to your motel straightaway after finished the tour of Doubtful Sound Day Cruise.

We enjoy staying in your motel. Room 18 is spotless clean ! It is very big , consists of two big individual rooms , one bath room with hot tub , spacious living room with kitchen and not forgotten that once we open the curtain in the living room , we could see the beautiful tower in front of us. It is a spectacular view !! My sister is crazy about the view. She loves it very much !!!

In my personal view , I like the location of your motel.

Three of us could visit one of the top restaurants in Invercargill i.e. " The Saucy Chef on St Andrew ". It is located within short distance from your motel. In the morning , we could buy some nice chocolates from " The Seriously Good Chocolate Company " . The shop is located not too far from your motel.

But , among all the tourist spots , I prefer to visit St. Mary's Basilica. The building is very elegant !!! It is worth to drop by and pay a visit .

We have quite a long chat on the evening when we check-in. We exchanged ideas about tourism business in New Zealand. We are truly enjoy the conversation with you and Leo. We hope that we did not bored you with our topic of conversation.

We hope to see you again in the future. There are a lot of towns and cities in Southland region that has not been discovered by us yet.

We wish you all the best and Good Business Always for your motel !!!!!!!

Once again , we love the room you reserve for us. It is superb !!!!!

Thank you .

Regards,

Brandon , Edwin and Claire.

Room Tip: Please choose the room number 18. We love the view from the window :)

We booked this last minute and we were so pleasantly surprised! The lady at the front desk was one of the most lovely, friendly, enthusiastic and helpful people we've encountered on our 10 day vacation. She gave us a cookie (biscuit) and a bottle of milk of our choice. Then went out of her way to give us a quick city overview and where to eat. She even gave us a "free drinks with meal" voucher.

The hotel unit was spotlessly clean and fully equipped to relax and cook dinner. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was great.

(We accidently set the smoke detector off and the host was incredibly nice about it!)

1 min walk from the Queen's Hardin's and probably 10 to town centre. Highly recommend.

Central motel. Good reception, service, etc. Stayed one night. Rooms as you'd expect in a drive-in Motel. Clean and functional. Everything worked and the bed was comfy! Quite for a good nights sleep. Not much near the Motel. You'll need your car to drive back into town or go find a restaurant or pub!

Room Tip: All rooms appear OK!

Thank you for the great review. We really enjoy what we do and appreciate when guests take the time to review our work. My apologies that maybe we forgot introduce------The Saucy Chef Restaurant and Bar which are very popular in Invercargill just about 500m to our motel and Most guests choose walk although we do provide free drop-off service. Also there have a takeaway about 600m and a Fish n Chips about 400m. You will enjoy walk to Southland Museum n Art Centre and there is a beatiful Queens Park which just close about 600m to us. Best wishes to you and Happy New Yaer! Emily&Leo

We stayed here for one night as we couldn't get across to Stewart Island because of the weather. We had stayed at a different motel the night before but were not impressed. As a result we looked for somewhere different to stay for our additional night. It was a warm welcome that we received! The room was really nice,bright and clean. All the facilities worked and were in good order. I can fully understand why this motel scores so highly. We would highly recommend this motel.
