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.

After a long drive in the rain we were glad to have chosen the Birchwood Manor as it's very easy to find and is conveniently situated close to all the amenities you'd want but far enough from town to be quiet, despite being on a main road. The welcome we received was second to none and car parking was very... More

We stayed here for several days and found this to be a comfortable motel with excellent hosts. Great central location on Tay Street within walking distance of the city centre. Will happily book here next time we are visiting Invercargill.
