A nice roomy motel, Was a cold night, 7.2 degrees frost heating worked well and duvet on bed was excellent. A luxury bed that was so comfotable to sleep in. Duvet kept us warm on a cold night, Walking distance to city. Free Wifi. Very good value for money. Gets a big tick from us.

I have stayed here on 4 occasions when visiting Invercargill to see my mother who is in care at a nearby rest-home. Most recently last Sunday 9th - 10th August. As they say on their web page it is handy to everything. A Countdown supermarket, gas station and ATM just across the road and the excellent Invercargill Workingmen's Club just... More

Visited 1 night at the Best Western in March. When checking in reception was incredibly friendly and we were upgraded from a studio to a 1 bedroom on the lower floor of the 2 story motel. We didn't require the extra beds and the bed in the bedroom was small, only a double. The unit was large, impeccably clean, and... More

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.

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.
