Great place to stay in Invercargill

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Dec 2023
Tower Motel was top notch. We were welcomed by James, the manager, who gave us great restaurant suggestions, discount coupons, and wonderful suggestions on where to stop on our drive from Invercargill and Te Anau. The room was spacious, with a separate living room, big comfy bed, well stocked kitchenette, and a spot to park the car right outside the door. It had a great location next to the Queen’s park and many shops and restaurants.

What a great motel! Unfortunately I only stayed one night arriving at night and leaving early in the morning. Still had the best service at check-in and check-out! And the room was huge!!! Location is exactly as it says- just across the road from the Water Tower! We arrived by bus and got dropped off at Burger King so only had a short walk, slightly longer since we stopped for photos every 10 steps… through the park, to the motel. If I ever get a chance to properly visit Invercargill this will be where I’ll hope to stay.

We stayed for 2 nights for the SIT graduation ceremony. The location is perfect for getting to the campus and other CBD locations (either a short drive or flat and easy walk). The motel has high rating on Tripadvisor so I had high expectations, but they still managed to surpass that. If I ever find myself back in Invercargill, this is where I will stay.

What I liked about this place:
- the unit is spacious, tidy and well equiped. We could have prepared all our meals if we wanted.
- fast internet allowed me to work without issues and comfortably stream movies
- the spa bath and a shower with decent water pressure
- extra towels in the bathroom vanity - this alone warrants a 5 star rating for a long haired girl always struggling with just one towel for body and hair
- they actually serviced the room after just one night (you don't see that much nowadays)
- discount vouchers for good eateries within walking distance
- quiet location despite being close to the CBD
- fabulous green space just across the road for walking, running, just being in nature

Lovely clean room, everything you need for a short stay. Helpful staff, close to the centre of town and the Botanical Gardens. Free off street parking and wifi. Easy to find would recommend and definitely value for money.

Val was very welcoming, had a great sense of humour and immensely helpful with all things laundry and sky TV. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Water pressure was amazing as is opposite the heritage listed water tower. Thoroughly recommended.

Room tip: Exit via the back gate as front exit is left turn only.

Business partner and I both stayed here due to being in Invercargill for a business meeting and had read the reviews.

Business partner wasn't too happy about not being able to get a good recommendation on where to find pancakes for breakfast. But beggars can't be choosers as they say.

Was definitely looking forward to the Spa bath after a hectic day of business meetings in Invercargill. This was a bit of an added bonus about the Motel for myself.

Will definitely stay again as management were super friendly and helpful. If only they could source a good spot for pancakes.

Room tip: If looking for pancakes don't use the Bach

Thank you for your feedback, which is much appreciated and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that we could help with that. With regards to pancakes, we have never been asked for a recommendation before and not being eaters of pancakes, it would not be wise of us to make recommendations.
