Stayed here and attended class at SIT, lovely place, people were welcoming and fantastic. Location is so close to SIT, supermarket and pools. Tools clean and tidy. Spa bath was amazing! Has a good chargeback service with local restaurants if you want to eat out. Will be staying again soon.

We loved the two nights we spent here. The room was cosy with a fabulous spa bath which was so appreciated after a busy day. The owners were more than helpful. Would stay again with no hesitation. The location too was handy to the inner city part of Invercargill.

We stayed for 1 night in July. The host was so friendly and very welcoming. The accommodation was huge (we had a 1 bed apart with no spa) and contained everything we would need for our stay. Directly opposite Countdown supermarket so self-catering was easy. I would happily stay again!

For the last few years we have mainly taken our holidays overseas and this is the first time we have stayed in a NZ motel for some time (on our way to the Bluff Oyster Festival). We had forgotten how good a very good NZ motel actually is. The Birchwood is an excellent motel - very clean, roomy, with all... More

a great place to stay because: the owners Mr.& Mrs. O'Brien are very friendly indeed and helpful, the rooms are both very spacious and clean, and also very quiet because, though the motel lays right on the road and at walking distance to town, the rooms are located around an inner courtyard, which in addition, offers a comfortable car parking....

It's a long day from Te Anau, especially if you stop off along the way to see things. Invercargill itself didn't hold many charms for us, but this motel was good. Comfortable, clean and very friendly and helpful owners who were happy to chat and from whom we received plenty of helpful advice. Would stay here again.

I stayed at this motel when travelling for work and it was convenient and comfortable. The room was large and the bed lovely and comfy. I found the people running this motel to be friendly and helpful and would definitely stay here again. It was also within walking distance to lots of different shops and some lovely old buildings.

Warm & friendly welcome. The rooms were good size, warm and very clean, like the fact that toilet and bathroom separate, great parking and comfy beds. Close to town, shops and Restaurants but still quiet. Wifi was quick and strong too. Will use this one again anytime. Cooking facilities were clean and handy with the Supermarket across the road.
