I had two overnight stays at this motel and it exceeded my expectations each time. The rooms were spotless and the facilities excellent. The most outstanding thing was the owners' helpfulness in assisting me in my travels. I did not expect such personal service and it was wonderful.

Spacious (like a one-bedroom apartment big), super-clean, well-equiped, recently remodeled with modern colors/fixtures/carpet, TV/wifi, and close to city parks. We traveled NZ for a month staying in a variety of accommodations - this was the best we stayed in. Exceptional in every way.

This motel in Invercargill is not only great value for money but is exceptionally clean, very well equipped, close to everything (including the beautiful Queens Gardens) and the managers very friendly and knowledgable on the local area. The attention to detail is wonderful...even down to a local paper being left at your door in the morning. Highly recommended!!!

Whilst the rooms themselves are not spectacular, they are all clean, tidy & as well equipped & comfortable as any motel we have stayed in in NZ. What makes this one different & much better than most others is the care & attention of the owners who can't do enough to help. Quite a refreshing change from the usual motel...

Dawn and Roy were excellent hosts, insuring the two bedroom suite/house that we stayed in met our needs to host a business meeting. Everything was pristine, arrangements were made to provide us breakfast on the morning we left. Great people, great location and a great value.

We recently stayed for two nights as part of a family celebration. Dawn and Ray were very welcoming, very hospitable and friendly. Our unit was clean, modern, comfortable and we could not fault it. We definitely recommend Tower Lodge Motel and would stay here again without hesitation.

Painful check in which the staff member still messed up so we needed to spend more time the next day. But fine otherwise. Nice shower. Spacious living room. Would have liked a king bed given we were in the deluxe spa suite.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We are extremely sorry for your slow check in. That is out of character for our staff and business. All our spa bath units have queen beds but we do have king beds in our standard units. We look forward to the opportunity of hosting you again in the...
