“Great motel, convenient and clean”
Reviewed 8 January 2010

We stayed just one night at this motel, and found it to be fine.
Invercargill isn't quite on the top of the list of touristy places in NZ so I had mixed expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the motel and the standard of the nearby shops and restaurants.

Clean, tidy, modern, quiet off the street motel. We booked off the street after being very let down from another motel in invercargill. Owner where more than happy to accoadate us at the last minute, units had plenty of room and would diffentlly stay there again.

We arrived at this motel at about 8:30pm in the rain with no reservation, after a long days driving. Even though we only wanted to stay 1 night we received a warm welcome and the owner even moved bookings so we could get a room on the ground floor and would not have to carry all our luggage upstairs so late on.
Everything was clean and fresh and the price meant it was excellent value.
It is a little out of town without anywhere within walking distance to eat and drink - but then again we didn't see any motels near the town centre.

We had a spacious 2 bedroom ground floor unit that was across a small side side street from the main motel property. I gather this must be the new extension as everything in our unit was modern & new! The bathroom had a whirlpool which was wonderful! Also had all the electronic gadgets in the kitchen that the previous reviewer mentioned, which is not commonplace in NZ motels. For the price we paid, it was excellent value. Highly recommended indeed!

Reviewed 2 March 2007

My wife, brother-in-law and I spent one night here on a tour of the South Island. We had a bungalow, with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living/dining area. The place looked brand new, with modern furniture. It was well equipped, with a washing machine, drier, oven, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. There was a small balcony, with table and chairs for sitting outside. The Motel is near the town centre, but Invercargill is spread out, and you need a car to get around. We ate in the Lone Star, which quickly became one of our favourite restaurants in New Zealand. The Motel charged us NZ$160/night, which was the lowest price we paid in New Zealand, representing good value for money.
