Arrived in Invercargill without a booking and this was our third attempt at finding a comfortable bed for our last night in NZ and I'm so glad we didn't settle on either of the first two.

This motel is run by a guy who obviously loves where he is and is very friendly and helpful. Our room was a basic motel room, had everything you would expect and bed as comfortable - heating great and even when off room stayed warm. Price was a little on the high side but I guess it is in a... More
