Stayed at the Balmoral on our trip to NZ. It was clean, comfortable and very spacious for 2. The unit was on 2 levels and had a huge bathroom with spa bath. A large cooked breakfast was delivered to our room as requested. It was delicious and came on time. The only down side was the unit could do with...

Booked this hotel at short notice for my husband and his 3 brothers going to a family funeral. The guys were very impressed with the size of the unit (2 bdrm) the layout, the beds, the space, and I could go on. The staff were friendly and overall the men were very happy.

This motel gives excellent value for money. Our was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. Staff were most obliging and friendly. Laundry was great only $2 to dry $0 for a wash. Bed was great. Decor is of an older style but still in good condition. Definitely recommend. Close to town for access to eating places too

Our room was spacious and the shower was excellent. The laundry facilities were brilliant - washing machine free and just $2.00 for the drier. Felt like good soundproofing as I could not hear the other rooms like most other places. A bit dated but not worried about that when you have big fluffy towels, comfy bed, nice sheets and a...

The rooms were very spacious, very clean, pleasant atmosphere and affordable. It's great for people with families. We booked this place for two nights before our trip. The second day we got stranded on Stewart Island due to weather conditions. We called the owner at Balmoral Lodge to let them know what happened. The owners were very understanding. They only...

Lovely size for a family unit: small kitchen with full oven (no dishwasher), a dining area with five seats at the table, a comfortable seating area with television, two levels of sleeping space including two 2-bed rooms with radiant-heated floors and cloud-soft poly blankets, and a bathroom with a towel warmer, a sectioned-off toilet area, and a roomy, hot, and...

This hotel is a short walk to the centre of town. The room was very large, clean, and the staff were friendly. They changed our original room allocated (due to noise), but the next room was very quiet and pleasant. We would be happy to stay there again.

When you walk into the unit you are struck with how dark it is. However, everything worked fine and we had a pleasant nights stay at the motel. It is conveniently placed and was comfortable. We were forced to spend another night in Invercargill as we couldn't get across to Stewart Island. We found another motel which was much brighter...

We loved the facilities at this motel. It was so well set up for travelling families. Tv in each room which the kids appreciated. Kitchen was well stocked. The road noise was only a little intrusive as we were in the unit closest to the highway. The only downside was the laundry was separate but still very useful.
