We had comfortable bed in a tiny but very tidy room. Our room was beside an outside door which meant we heard every guest who left early. Loved the communal lounge, dining area and the use of the kitchen was handy. Wifi was good in the lounge but didn't work in our room. We had a lovely young lady looking...

All the staff are really friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Renovations were taking place for my stay but this didn't affect the atmosphere of the place. It rained every day but with advice i was able to make the most of my time despite the rain.

Stayed one night. The rooms were basic but clean and the bed was comfortable. The people were very friendly and helpful. It is a little way from the centre of town, but parking was good. Prices are comparable to other alternatives, but it is the friendly atmosphere that would lead me to stay here again.

Good comfortable room, spotlessly clean, spacious modern en-suite with plenty of hot water and toiletries provided. Very helpful and friendly staff who gave great service. In a quiet area but an easy drive into town. We would use again.

This was the first and only bed and breakfast that I stayed in during a lengthy tour of New Zealand. I tried it as an alternative to motels, with fond memories of delicious full breakfasts in the UK. Saw the sign as I drove into Invercargill from Queenstown and received a friendly welcome. There were no other guests booked in...

Thank you for choosing to stay at Lovett Lodge B&B on your travels. I agree that our rooms are not large however many of our guests comment on the homely & friendly atmosphere. Rather than spending time in their room often guests choose to mix and mingle in our rather large guest lounge, that has Sky TV & DVD player...

We spent one night here, and were sorely disappointed. As others have said, it was a former nursing home, and it cleary shows. It would be better named a dormitory, than a B & B. Long, narrow, poorly lit hallway, it is easy to imagine it's former use. It is the first room I have ever had anywhere that did...
