Was pleasantly surprised to be put up in the house a lovely 20's art deco place as travelling with a group. Good to be in a house instead of a characterless motel unit. Good home type facilities and character, very clean. The hostess/manager could not do enough for us with a generous Wi-Fi allowance. Also very helpful with information about...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 February 2017

The motel was easy to find-it's opposite the water tower. The room was spacious and clean and the receptionist very helpful. As we only stayed one night on the way to Te Anau we didn't have time to look at the park close to the motel, but it looked lovely. We did go to Bluff-NZ's lands end. It's less than...

I needed to extend my stay and the room I had was unavailable for the second night of my stay so I was moved into another unit which was great as it meant I didn't need to pack up and move rooms. Really happy with the service provided.

We had originally landed on staying one night but when we saw all there was to do in and around Invercargill and how nice this motel was we booked a second night. The management is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very adequate and clean. We would definitely stay there again.

We used TripAdvisor to find this place and it lived up to its Number 1 rating. The unit was spacious, the kitchenette well equipped and parking was outside the door. The motel is very close to the main shopping areas. And staff are friendly and helpful in explaining what and where to visit The only downside was that toiletries weren't...

Guys and girls, I just thought I would add a common text to all my NZ reviews before I start, so there is some context to my comments. This was our 5th visit to NZ, but the first to the South Island. We stayed mostly in “motels” And the $cost spread was probably from a low of $150 to a...

We had three very pleasant nights at the Tower Lodge Motel. The owner is without doubt one of the friendliest people we have encountered. She had great suggestions on where to eat and what to do, and even offered umbrellas to contend with the wet and windy Invercargill weather. The unit was large and clean and had all you need...

A traditional motel about a 20 minute walk to the town centre, nevertheless a very pleasant place to stay. Our one bedroom apartment was large, clean and well equipped. Despite being away from the centre, we found an excellent restaurant within 10 minutes walking.
