Invercargill is a bit of a funny place (they seem to be having economic problems, LOADS of empty or closing shops in town. But there are interesting places to visit, even if rather doubtful weather makes a trip to Stewart Island unattractive. If you stay in Invercargill, the Yarrow Motel is a good base. We stayed a couple of nights... More

We took the 3 bed motel room. Good space and kitchen was well equipped. The bathroom was slightly disappointing in that it was a tiny hand basin - not great to be able to wash face / shave! and the shower was a trickle. Very clean but also quite dated. Some what over priced we felt for what you get.... More

Like several other reviewers, I needed to stay overnight in Invercargill en route to Stewart Island. Arriving by bus, Yarrow Motel is only a 10 min. flat walk from the bus stop. In case of rain, the owners will pick you up. You couldn't find more helpful hosts than Karla and Peter or a more comfortable, large and clean unit.... More

We are back after 2 years and elected to stay at the same motel as last time. Same owners, ( Karla & Peter ) providing the same very high standard of customer care. It was great to see nothing had changed. If anything the service was even better than the last time. Love the central heating. This is our motel... More

I was traveling from Stewart island and had to spend a night in Bluff or Invercargill. After booking, I found out that the ferry might not sail due to bad weather. I called the owners, who allowed me to cancel my reservation free of charge, even that it was quite late and I guess that they couldn't find anyone else.... More

During our road trip in New Zealand we made a stop in Invercargill. Cute, small town! We decided to stay at Yarrow Motel. It was really easy to find and we could park right outside the studio we were staying in. The staff was very friendly on our arrival and helped out to point out some destinations on our trip... More

Whilst not an upmarket place, this was a very good motel to stop off on our travels. Very nice staff & comfortable & clean rooms. Located a 10 minute walk from Invercargill shops & restaurants, so not too far out of the way. Very peaceful & plenty of parking.

This is second time in 7 months we have used this motel. I can not speak highly enough of the owners they are very friendly and nothing is a problem if it makes your stay better. The cleanliness inside and outside the units is of a very high standard. Again thank you for everything, we will be back.

Booked this room through lastminute.com. Cost around the $90 mark for one night. Great location! Walking distance or a short drive to the main street and the museum. Staff were very helpful and provided us with maps, drink vouchers and free wifi. A morning paper was also offered. The room contained a combined main bedroom/lounge with TV and heater. A... More
