Stayed overnight for business. I think the room I was in used to have an upstairs but not any more. Only complaints are a noisy fan heater and a dribbly shower. Nice big room, full kitchen facilities (I could cook dinner from scratch) and lots of tea and coffee options. Warm and comfortable.

Very clean and comfortable place. Friendly service, all requirements met and exceeded expectations. Must have policy of keeping rooms renovated and contemporary as looked relatively new or in very good condition. Room at comfy temperature on arrival - most welcomed.

We found this place through the i-site in Invercargill. Only $99 for the night was excellent value. The room was great. As well as been clean and tidy, it was large and had king size bed. They had not added to many blankets to the bed and the room was warm, so there was no need. The room also had... More

Our family was surprised to enter a huge room with loft. The room was warm and homely and had everything we needed including kitchenette. We enjoyed our time here and the value for money for a family on a budget was excellent. I can't recommend Balmoral Lodge enough. The only downside (no fault of Balmoral Lodge) was the flat tyre...

I am never sure about staying in motels. Some are not so good, however this studio unit was spacious and very clean. It was a bit dark so we had to put the light on during the afternoon, but that was fine. I think maybe having lighter coloured bedspreads would help brighten it up. Apart from that it was very...

Friendly receptionist. Motel room was clean, and the kitchen was well equipped with the usual appliances and cutlery. The bathroom was large with lots of towels including a dark coloured facecloth that had makeup embroided on it.(saves the nice white towels). The bedrooms were massive with a queen and single bed in each room. They also had a TV. in... More

Everything you need is in the room, it was spacious and clean. The staff were really helpful and let us leave our luggage whilst we went to Stewart Island. Parking is right outside your unit. Its a little way out of the centre so you need a car to pop into town where most of the restaurants are. The only... More
