A very comfortable motel. Warm welcome. But most of all an offer of free wifi connection. why is it that it is small operations in NZ which make the effort? Apart form that good tv warm firm bed and lots of options for pamphlets for things to do.

The hosts are so friendly, they made me feel very welcomed and at home. They also gave me good suggestions on what to do while I was there. Note, most people I met said there's not much to it in Invercargill, however that's not the case, thanks to my wonderful hosts. My room was very cosy and clean, had a... More

I would definitely stay at this place again. The room was so much larger than we had expected, extremely clean, all the amenities you need even sky tv. Also the lady at the reception was a darling and made it very easy. Looking at this place from the road may not thrill you but, it's quite a nice comfortable hotel.
