I stayed here as I ended up needing a nights accommodation in Invercargill and had to make a last minute booking on a busy weekend. I got the last room (a 'luxury' suite) and was offered a special rate which I really appreciated. It certainly perked up my otherwise rubbish day! The room was really nice and extremely comfortable. Lovely...

I stayed here in the middle of winter, the room was warm and comfortable. Guest laundry facilities and handy to the center of town. I was able to self cater and also had good in room wifi. Would stay here again.

The very spacious and comfortable studio had all the amenities that we needed. The reception staff were friendly and efficient and provided good advice on Invercargill and our further destinations. The accommodation was great value.

Stayed overnight for business. I think the room I was in used to have an upstairs but not any more. Only complaints are a noisy fan heater and a dribbly shower. Nice big room, full kitchen facilities (I could cook dinner from scratch) and lots of tea and coffee options. Warm and comfortable.

Very clean and comfortable place. Friendly service, all requirements met and exceeded expectations. Must have policy of keeping rooms renovated and contemporary as looked relatively new or in very good condition. Room at comfy temperature on arrival - most welcomed.

We found this place through the i-site in Invercargill. Only $99 for the night was excellent value. The room was great. As well as been clean and tidy, it was large and had king size bed. They had not added to many blankets to the bed and the room was warm, so there was no need. The room also had...

Our family was surprised to enter a huge room with loft. The room was warm and homely and had everything we needed including kitchenette. We enjoyed our time here and the value for money for a family on a budget was excellent. I can't recommend Balmoral Lodge enough. The only downside (no fault of Balmoral Lodge) was the flat tyre...

I am never sure about staying in motels. Some are not so good, however this studio unit was spacious and very clean. It was a bit dark so we had to put the light on during the afternoon, but that was fine. I think maybe having lighter coloured bedspreads would help brighten it up. Apart from that it was very...
