A comfortable up-to-date motel handy to the lovely Queens Park and main shopping area. Managers are excellent. They gave advice about things to do in Invercargill, e.g. Anderson's Park, which we loved. They sent something on to us that we accidentally left behind.

The staff at this hotel's front desk are absolutely fantastic - any time I had a question or needed information, or just when I happen to pass by, they always have a smile, always a positive attitude, always eager to ensure our stay is going well, always going "the extra mile" whenever they can. We wish them a great future... More

New and friendly owners. Nice, clean and tidy motel. My boys wanted to stay another night. They were very accomodating and even went the Xtra mile for me as this was our first time at Invercargill. Wish them all the best for their future success.

Excellent room and clean and tidy - it even had 2 bedrooms which was bliss for a family on the road. Large bathroom with a spa bath was a bonus. Everything set out well with good kitchen facilities. Friendly management.
