We were in Invercargill for a friend's wedding and chose to stay at Tower Lodge Motel based on their excellent TA reviews. It didn't disappoint at all, comfortable and spacious room, good central location and very friendly hosts. Would happily recommend and stay here again.

We were en route from Te Anau to Bluff and used this motel for a one night stay. The room was very spacious and clean and very well equipped. The owner was welcoming and very helpful and we spent a whole afternoon in the Botanic Garden which was a great place. The cafe in the grounds was excellent. Everyone kept... More

This place was about the best thing about Invercargill! The hosts were very welcoming from getting the unit to the configuration we wanted, showing us how the laundry operated to giving us extra wi-fi vouchers when we used up the first one given out. We had a 1-bed unit which was spacious enough for our needs. The WC is separate... More

Stayed one night to break up the drive between TeAnu and Dunedin. Not much to see in this town. But, the caretakers of this motorlodge were very friendly and helpful. They gave us a coupon for a free drink with a meal at a good, local restaurant. Also tried to help with pointing out the "sights." Room was about 3... More

An excellent choice of motel in Invercargill. Located just outside the CBD. This makes it accessible to town and reasonably quiet (although on a main road). The room was comfortable, well serviced and clean. Car parking at doorway. The manager had good knowledge of the area and had many suggestions (mainly of good restaurants).

We booked our room here for the location, but enjoyed everything else about it too. It's right across the street from the scenic water tower, and just a half block from Queens Park. Great for a morning jog. The room was large clean and comfortable too. The bedroom was actually a bit small, but there was plenty of room in... More

My wife was hospitalized in Invercargill and the Tower Lodge staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. We stayed in the adjacent house accommodation and it was very comfortable well appointed.

Really clean rooms and hospitable folks. The nearby Queen's Park is a gem, and you can walk right over there. The beds are comfy, the bathrooms updated and clean, and they are within walking distance of some great places.
