Stayed here for two nights. Rooms are large and clean and represent good value for money. Reception staff friendly but restaurant really weird. Nice place to stay but eat elsewhere. Would be very happy to stay again.

Apparently the best that Invercargill has to offer, this ground-floor only hotel is on the fringe of the town so having your own transport will be handy, though there's a chemist very close by. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The public areas are spacious and clean. Our experience in the restaurant was a mixed one of nicely cooked meals... More

This Hotel has everything a conference convenor could wish for. Great service, great staff and a venue that welcomes delegates to the City of Invercargill. The restaurant has a restful ambience, love the fire, great foyer to relax and watch the world go by. Oh, and the accommodation is great also!

We arrived off the street at around 1pm having just traveled the seven hours from Christchurch. We had previously looked at a couple of other motels in Invercargill but nothing compared to here. From the moment we walked in the service began. The reception greetings were warm and welcoming and the staff bent over backwards to help us. We requested... More

We stayed here for one night as a stopping point during our tour of New Zealand for my husband's birthday. It is a wonderfully large complex and we were able to park our car directly outside our room. I liked the fact you could winch open the top window to get fresh air. The room was large and very clean.... More
