The motel is a very good, modern establishment that is nicely furnished. It has a modern bathroom. The kitchen was good and there was good lighting in the unit. Unit 1 is nearest the road with units 8 and 9 further away from the road. Everything in the motel was of a high standard. We were very impressed and would... More

Have been staying here for quite a number of years, and the standard of the rooms and the great service from Dianna has not faltered in all these years. Don't need to write a review, and all the other guests have done it for me.... Tx again for your Southern Hospitality. :)

We had a one bedroom suite. You walk into a large lounge/dining/kitchen. The large bedroom and decent sized bathroom are separate rooms. Very classy and luxurious. If its cold,they even turn on the heater to warm up the room before you get there. Now thats a big plus Service is just awesome

We stayed one night and enjoyed the very clean, spacious and well appointed unit. The uniit was away from the road so no traffic noise. A little way out of the town centre but not a problem. good recommendation of where to eat at night.

On writing this review, I see that 388 on Tay is ranked at #2 in Invercargill. The #1 must be quite exceptional, as this motel is immaculately clean, well appointed and with hotel type amenities. I stayed for 3 nights along with others who had different units, but were all equally impressed. The owners were nothing but helpful and were... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and we're very impressed with the quality of the rooms. We had a 1 bedroom unit, it was warm and cosy, with a very comfy bed, large spa bath and good kitchen facilities. The staff were great giving us lots of ideas of where to go and what to see in Invercargill. They also... More

Our family enjoyed using one of their two bedroom town houses located straight across the road from the main complex. It is spacious & includes a washer & dryer which is great if you are away from home for a while & need to catch up on washing. The owners are lovely. & the little house we rented was spotless....
