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

Room service meals beautifully presented, delicious and delivered by lovely, friendly staff. I used the courtesy coach several times to travel into town and this service was always provided with a smile. Also love... More

We stayed in room 4 of the motel portion of the property. Our room was tidy, clean and had all the amenities we needed. Check in and out was a breeze with their friendly staff. There are two entrance/exits from the grounds so pay attention to the map. Would definitely stay here again should I ever find myself in Invercargill... More
