I stayed here for one night prior to an early appointment the next morning. I was welcomed warmly and given useful information along with milk for my coffee/tea. The room was spacious, very clean and tidy with a neat kitchen area and shower with separate loo. Everything I could have needed was there and there was an efficient electric heater....

Beyond impressed with my stay here, the hosts went above and beyond for us - always greeting me in the morning when going to clean the rooms - which were consistently maintained to the highest standard. I needed to get some mail re-routed and this was done with no fuss which made everything extremely stress free. There was a petrol...

Great Motel, with very friendly and informative staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with small kitchenette and private bathroom. There is parking outside each unit and also a great laundry with washer and dryer and the use of a spa if required. We had a relaxing stay in this lovely motel. One very slight criticism we found it tricky...

Very clean and tidy, not the newest motel on the block but well cared for quiet rooms. Great staff. Probably a good 20 minute walk to the main shopping street in Invercargill, on a dry day. Great off-street parking.

Extremely clean and tidy units, will stay there again when next in Invercargill, will recommend to family and friends. The only negative was ashtrays on walkways, and with quite a few smokers staying the same night as us, made it a little unpleasant.

We stayed here with a sports team of approximately 40 people and it was a great stay. There were a range of rooms available to suit all of our needs. It was especially helpful to have the house across the road to have a more secluded room. The rooms were all clean and tidy and were serviced each day. Clark...
