Welcoming, friendliy and helpful staff. The clean room is nicely furnished and very well equipped. Really comfortable. The hotel is close to the museum and the beautiful parks, an easy walking distance from the centre, yet quiet at night. Our hostess informed us about all the attractions in town and provided all the information material. She recommended us a restaurant... More

My wife and I stayed at the Tower Lodge last week. We could not have been happier nor more comfortable. Dawn was extremely welcoming and got us orientated to the sites of the city. The rooms are extremely clean and very quiet. And wow, Ray drove us the airport on our departure. Highly recommended...and for good reason is the No1... More

There was a queen bedroom with a twin bed in the main room along with a couch and table. The kitchen was well supplied with cookware and a toaster. The room was very clean and organized. 500MB/person internet, which was one of the more generous allotments we came across. The host was helpful overall, and gave me another code to... More

Dawn, the hostess, was just great. Very friendly. Wonderful southern hospitality. Our 2 bedroom was large and had all we need. The decor was a little dated - place is an old style motel, but it was very good value for money. It was clean and comfortable.

We could not be happier with this hotel. When we checked in, the lovely woman checking us in could not have been kinder. She immediately helped us with getting our clothes washed. She went out of her way to be helpful. The room is very spacious and clean and in a great location. The bed is comfortable.

On the day we were visiting Invercargill we needed something to brighten our spirits as it was grey, overcast, cold and pouring with hail every so often (welcome to spring in the south of the south island) which did nothing to cheer up what seems to be a pretty "dour" place anyway. The Tower Lodge is right across from Queens... More

I stayed in a "1 bedroom spa bath unit." The room was very clean. It had a living/kitchen area, a separate bedroom, and a huge bathroom with a shower and a separate spa bath. There was a full kitchen, including a conventional oven, microwave oven, and a four-burner range (or hob, as it's called in New Zealand). The host, Dawn,... More

We have stayed in the Tower Lodge Motel in Invercargill eight times in the last 17 months. We have always been very happy here. We we have been in perhaps five different units and have found them comfortable, well equipped and quiet. All have been spotlessly clean. The owners, Dawn and Ray, are helpful, kind, friendly, efficient and really make... More

I have tried four, the first three were lacking. The Tower was excellent, no complaints. Good internet allowance of 500 MB a day and the room was good, clean and quite with a good heater (essential in Invercargill). The owner offered to run me to work if it was wet in the morning which it fortunately wasn't. Town centre about... More

Tower Lodge Motel is a pleasant and clean enough motel in residential Invercargill but I doubt that it's best accommodation in the city. It's a clean, smallish motel just a couple of blocks away from the centre of town and the owners are very pleasant and helpful. It is very close to the lovely Queens Gardens and as the name... More

Thankyou for your feedback. We agree Queens Park is lovely and we are lucky to be so close to it. It is certainly an asset to our city. Our motel complex has 17 units of which 5 were built in the 1960,s, and we have refurbished these over the last 3 years. The remaining units were built since the year... More
