We arrived in Invercargill with no accomodation booked. We saw this motel in the AA book and called in. With a very warm welcome, we were lucky enough to be offered the 3 bedroom house. It was perfect - clean, homely, great amenities and spacious. We had two nights there, and had all the help we needed to find our... More

We stayed here twice on our way to Stewart Island and on our way back. Nothing was too much trouble. They took us to and from Invercargill airport, stored the child car seat for us while we were on the island and other bags as well. The accommodation was excellent - warm, comfortable and clean. Such friendly helpful owners who... More

My dad passed away on mothers day, and my whole family converged on Invercargill. Yarrow motel was very close to dads house, so we checked them out to see if they would be suitable for a base while we were sorting out his funeral. We booked their 3 bedroom house and a 2 room unit for our stay. The units... More

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
