Room was clean and well appointed. Only had one mirror which was in the bathroom. The room was an older style but all worked properly. Hosts were very accommodating and gave us helpful advice regarding local sights and travel routes.

A one night stay was all we had. It is on a main road but the volume of traffic is negligible and we did not hear the traffic. The room was clean and well presented. The park across the way is worth a look as it just like the parks in England during the 70's a real treat.

We are so glad we decided to look at this place too after checking out a few other hotels right in Downtown as this had high reviews. The older couple that ran this place were great hosts and very helpful. They gave us the choice of a lovely Studio room with a King Bed or a great single bedroom. We... More

Well, after staying at some sub-standard disabled accommodation, I found Birchwood to be a breath of fresh air. Let me explain, the bed height is awesome (so many have beds that are 12 inches from the floor), the toilet and wet areas are also very good with hand basin and mirror at a great height, shower is totally usable (only...

Good size unit with basic cooking facilities - ample for an on the move traveller. Clean and spacious unit. Our hosts were helpful and friendly - reasonable location close to the supermarket. Close to the main road but no traffic noise. Would have no hesitation in staying again.

Very spacious room with 2 rocking chairs and dining table, with a private view out onto a pretty garden. From reception to the cleaner everyone was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were quiet and the motel had a laundry room. This accommodation is right opposite a supermarket. We only stay 1 night but will return next time in Inercargill.

We selected Birchwood Manor at random when we drove into Invercargill. We found the hosts David and Sue so helpful. David gave us all the information we needed to visit Stewart Island and he did all our bookings. The motel was clean and well equipped and very handy to everything. Following our trip to Stewart Island we returned and stayed... More
