Fantastic, 14 of us had booked 5 rooms for the weekend for the Wellington Branch and couldn't fault the service we received. Tony and Dorothy went out of their way to accommodate us with some changes that we made. They couldn't have been more helpful and their staff were also very friendly. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated.... More

Stayed here this week while travelling around the South Island. The 4 of us were really impressed with the cleanliness of the accommodation and the spaciousness of our unit. We had a 2 bedroom unit which gave us one room with Queen bed, one with twin beds. As we requested 4 separate beds they set up a 4th single bed... More

I was in Invercargill primarily to go shark diving in Bluff, but Invercargill has places to see too, including one of the best public parks around. That said, staying at this hotel was a VERY good choice, the staff and manager are simply awesome, very accomodating, the room was spotless. I mean operating theatre like spotless. The decor was very... More

I recently attended a family wedding in Invercargill and chose to stay at Best Western Townsman Motor Lodge. What a great location!

Nothing was too much to ask of them, and they... More

We arrived tired and hungry at 8 pm, and with no reservation. The BW had two rooms left. Tony, the manager, could not have been more accommodating, and the rooms were immaculate and spacious. There is no dining room, but if you wish, breakfast is brought to your room at an appointed time. There are adequate choices on a checklist... More
