Reception lacked the usual Southern Hospitality often encountered in Invercargill Motels, but the rooms themselves were very spacious, and very warm. Very adequately furnished and comfortable, with many supplies not often encountered elsewhere. It is located at the Northern end of the City, but given that it is on a main road, and you are likely to have a car... More

Just returned from a trip around the South Island. Stayed at the Hacienda on the way up the East Coast. As other's have mentioned, the parking is a bit tricky when the motel is full. The unit (number 5) we stayed in was clean, spacious and comfortable for our one night stay.

Had one night here in August and while it was clean and spacious and the staff friendly enough that's about where it ends. The room was very dated, noisy, most windows let cold air in when closed, the heater was as good as an ash tray on a motorbike, and it's a fair way from anything as well. But if... More

Hello, we are a family of 5. The unit was reasonably spacious, clean, and tidy. The motel has a spanish old style theme. The rounded arches in front of the unit makes it a bit tricky for car parking as the car parks are a bit tight but should be plenty of space if the units were not all occupied.... More

After having vivid memories of Invercargill from a childhood trip I knew not to expect too much. However, I was so surprised with this motel that I hope I didn't offend the owner. The room was just lovely, clean and well appointed having been updated recently. There was a laundry which was easily accessible and usable. I will say that... More

The Hacienda Motel in Tay Street Invercargill is a gem to stay in. It is clean and comfortable with every amenity available. The rooms are well decorated with homely touches like cushions and flowers. The information available is informative and the management are excellent, very helpful and considerate. A great place to stay in Invercargill.

We spent two nights in Invercargill and picked Hacienda on the Internet. When we arrived you could see the motel was a bit dated but nevertheless we were very impressed with our accommodation, comprising large lounge with seating area, bedroom and separate bathroom. It was clean and spacious. Sky TV was available and our hostess was very friendly and helpful.... More

This motel was quite standard for its type.had all the expected facilities but it was way out of town and would mean driving if we were to eat in the city(which is not my preferred option as I like a few beers in the evening) Luckily there was a large hotel/conference facility a couple of minutes walk away and I...

Three adults for two days. Very impressed with this motel and will definitely use the next time we are in Invercargill. Stayed in unit 4. Very comfortable, very roomy, space to relax, full dining room table with 4 chairs, full kitchen with proper oven. Everything cleaned to my wife's standards (difficult to do), very nicely appointed, lots of little extra... More
