Really clean rooms and hospitable folks. The nearby Queen's Park is a gem, and you can walk right over there. The beds are comfy, the bathrooms updated and clean, and they are within walking distance of some great places.

This motel is clean and well run. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The internet is free and they have movies to borrow for free. They are helpful with tourist information and were also very helpful to a couple they could not accommodate, going to great lengths to find them somewhere in a nearby town as Invercargill itself was fully...

Booked the motel at the last moment due to itinerary change... but it is one of the best accommodation in my NZ trip. The location is very convenient and the hygienic condition of the apartment is at the highest level of motel standard. Warmly welcomed by the reception staff, we tried the recommended restaurant and fresh oysters nearby and they...

Tower Lodge Invercargill What a find!! The room was immaculate and spacious. Our hosts Ray and Dawn were most welcoming and had put a scented candle in the kitchenette to ensure there was no residual smell from the cooking of the previous guests. There is ample parking and the lodge is close enough to the town centre (4 min drive...

We received a most pleasant welcome when we checked in at reception and were shown to our studio unit which was roomy and spotlessly clean. Situated across from the city`s landmark water tower and just a couple of blocks to the city center makes it very convenient.,Certainly will stay there again.Many Thanks.

This motel was chosen based on Trip Advisor rating. All my expectations from the reviews were met. This was by far the best value for money of 10 places I stayed in New Zealand. Nice location, near a very nice park.

Arriving at this motel we were offered an upgrade, and shown a choice of rooms. We took one towards the rear of the premises, which had a separate bedroom and a fold down queen bed (very comfortable too) in the main area. The room was very clean and very quiet, was equipped with full size stove, microwave, toaster, fridge and...
