The Unit was clean, liked that they encouraged recycling, staff very friendly, helpful & welcoming, plenty of pots, pans and cooking utensils etc.... Unit needs updating, had heating but was quite chilly & took a while to heat the Unit up (would not stay in winter), electric blankets on the bed - even though I am not a big fan... More

Clean, tidy nice room. Good size bathroom. The Bavarian is just a nice place to stay. The bed was super comfy and having a TV in both the lounge and the bedroom with Netflix is a nice bonus. Thanks Annabel!

We stayed here for 2 nights in February 2016. The unit was very clean, modern and well-presented. Staff helpful and friendly. Location a bit too far to walk into the city centre on a busy road. Our unit was far enough away from the road that we couldn't hear traffic at night, but this may be a problem for some... More

I have been coming here regularly on business for years. The owners are always very friendly and welcoming. The units are immaculately clean, and the beds the best anywhere. I like that the units are spacious enough to include both bath and shower and a skylight in the bathroom, with underfloor heating which is great in winter. There is a... More

Stayed there just one night, but the place is spotlessly clean and the towels and linen are of excellent quality. The team there were tremendously helpful. Would happily recommend this place to anyone visiting Invercargill.
