We stayed here for one night and it was great. Bed was so comfy and service was excellent. Free wifi as well. Close to the city centre and across the road from a countdown. Would highly recommend if staying in invercargil.

Due to a serious car accident we stayed at this motor lodge after being discharged from hospital, awaiting insurance to fly us home to Australia. Tony, Manager, and Dorothy, Staff, were so obliging and helpful all the way through our stay. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and "homely" and we sincerely thank them for their kindness. Would recommend this place... More

Check in friendly & helpful. Room was bigger than expected with a separate bedroom that also had a second tv. Very clean & tidy. Great location & quiet, supermarket across the road was really handy. Would recommend.

Clean, comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Location good. Supermarket opposite hotel and about 7-10 mins walk into city centre. The museum in Invercargill is really worth a visit. The have a tuatara breeding programme that has been very successful so you can see tuataras at all stages of development.

The motor lodge is clean and tidy. It is a bit noisy with road noise and someone in the upstairs unit. The bed was super comfortable - very high quality. Walking distance to town and Southern Institute of Technology. Easy and friendly check in as well.

Only stayed one night here, unfortunately. Very nice welcome at reception, although we were rather early. We were allocated a very spacious unit with large lounge/diner/kitchen and separate bedroom. All good and clean. Some updating had been done. Decent shower room/toilet. Would not hesitate to stay here again - very nice, with nice people running it.
