“Lives up to the reviews!”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We spent one night at the Tower Lodge Motel while passing through the area - from the Catlins to Fiordland. I wish we could have stayed longer! The hosts were so welcoming and friendly, and had lots of suggestions for dining and things to see and do in the area. The room was spacious and well decorated, with a great sitting area, a small table for working and/or eating, and an oh-so-comfortable bed! Loved the smart purple touches, too! The place looks pretty ordinary from the outside, but the inside is really quite nice.

The kitchen was well-organized and had lots of amenities, including two burners with pots and pans, which increases your options if you're cooking for yourself. Electric kettle, toaster, fridge, microwave - the room had everything we needed. Lots of room for luggage, too, and a nicely put together bathroom.

Highly recommended!

We picked Tower Lodge because it has a pet friendly motel room.

The lodge has a great reputation and totally lives up to the reviews it has been given here on Trip Advisor.

The host Ray was incredibly friendly and we loved the free cookies on arrival!

The motel unit was tidy, modern and spotless and delivered exactly what the photos promised. We'd certainly stay here again.

Without doubt, the Tower Lodge Motel, Invercargill was our best stop of our entire trip in NZ. Spacious, tasteful, well equipped, with excellent hosts, it barely missed a beat. From the car park it doesn't look that special, but the first thing that hits you is the depth as it goes back a good 30ft+. The first section is shared by a dining table and chairs opposite a generous settee. Then comes a good sized double bed. At the foot there's good passing space between bed and wardrobe. Finally the room splits into bathroom and kitchen area. In the bathroom there's a jetspa attachment and over bath shower, and the lights double as heat lamps. You've just gotta have a bath! The kitchen section has double stove burner, microwave and large fridge. The whole room is tastefully decorated in rich burgundy and purple and the wood units blend in well. There's no external seating but, that aside, nothing's missed. Internet access is provded free and we were upgraded to accommodate our need to Skype UK. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending for anyone.

Apartment- like room with kitchenette, living room, bed and bath. Wireless Internet, convenient parking, laundry on site. Outstanding personal attention from front office -- over and above what we expected.

Close to Queen's Park and Southland Museum (don't miss it!)
