The owner and the employees treated me as one of their own, genuinely without any pretense. They kept their promises and even went beyond their line of duty to help me with settling in. They always wanted to know how they can serve me better. I have experienced some good customer service in many places I traveled. But this one... More

Our high school netball team stayed at the Townsman for a week while we played a tournament in Invercargill. The service was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful.

I checked into the Best Western Townsman Lodge on a cold & stormy night. The welcome was warm, as was the unit (heaters on before I arrived.) The unit contained all one needed & had a high standard of cleanliness. This complex is situated close to a supermarket and is just a short walk from the city centre so a... More

Thank you Tony and Dorothy for making our stay in Invercargill so great. Our room was so warm and cosy on a cold night out. Just a shame we only had two nights with you but we will differently be staying again when we are next down your way.
