Great retro motel

Review of Monarch Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 weeks agovia mobile
Very retro motel, awesome comfy bed and lots of space, all in all we were very happy.
Self contained kitchen all very clean. Loved the separate bedroom away from the lounge that was really nice.
Huge bathroom.
All very clean and welcoming and that’s all that matters

Lovely tidy room and great service from staff and owners.

Was a small issue with the shower in the morning seemed to go super hot and then run cold before going back to normal temperature kind of like it is set on a communal system if someone turns the water on in another room it effects other showers.

Apart from this one issue was a lovely stay and very convenient for what I was doing in Invercargill

Room tip: Shower early or late try and miss the rush :)

To be fair, we were not here long as we were up early after one night to catch low tide at Cathedral Cave. That said, the room was clean, kitchenette reasonably well equipped and bed comfortable. Ample parking. If you're touring NZ and happy with motels then the Monach is worth a try.

Booked in for just the 1 night. Easy to find.
Room was perfect for family of 4. We had a Queen in the living area and 2 singles in a separate room. Rooms were big and I liked that the additional bench space had stools to use as dining table.
Bathroom was a good size.
We were on the ground floor near a stair case so was worried about noise, but didn’t hear anything.
Very clean and well maintained!

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!!!
