Firstly, Paula (the host) was extremely pleasant and helpful. We were the annoying guests who made the booking on the morning of our stay, and we were able to check in at midday which was appreciated. The motel is situated within walking distance to the central city area, and has a two supermarkets within a two block radius. It's on...

Hubby and I spent a weekend in Invercargill and stayed here. We had a great time, super close to supermarket and rest of town. We were able to drive around and visit Bluff and Riverton without having too much trouble finding our way back. Quiet, tidy, friendly. What more could you want?

Stayed for 2 nights in a one bedroom unit. Room was spacious, very clean and had all of the required items. Across the road from large Countdown supermarket which is convenient should you wish to self cater. A reasonable distance to main shopping precinct so car would be of benefit. Small negatives would be tired lounge seating, effectiveness of available...

Good location and friendly staff. The family unit that we stayed in was perfect for our family of four. The manager was very helpful before the trip, returning my emails promptly when I had questions. Then he was helpful as well upon arrival when we had questions about Invercargill. We had a great time. Would stay again.

On the plus side - the hosts were very friendly and the unit was clean and tidy. But it stopped there - very tired decor, hardly any plugs to charge phones and ipads, very tired seating, no coffee tables, bedding - very dated.
