I stayed at the Tower Lodge Motel in early January, 2015, while helping an elderly relative in the area with house renovations. The hosts and cleaner were exceptionally friendly and helpful--genuinely nice people. When I had trouble with some of the arrangements I was making for my relative, they happily accepted phone calls and messages from area businesses and also... More

My cousin & I stayed at Tower Lodge Motel on New Years Eve 2014. Both Dawn and Victoria were really helpful and eager to help us understand what the city had to offer and also recommended some local restaurants (we also got some vouchers for a free drink each with our meal at Waxy O'Sheas). The rooms have modern decor... More

After several days of camping in the Catlins, the Tower Lodge Motel (TLM) was a perfect way to end our time in the Southland. The staff at TLM were friendly and welcoming. We weren't able to print out a coupon when we made our booking, but they cheerily honored the advertised discount and free wifi anyway. When we asked for... More

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
