Older style motel Warm and extremely helpful check - in - very useful advice provided about local tourist attractions, Bluff, Queens Park Gardens and Museum - recommend all for a visit. The Gardens at this time of year (spring) are especially beautiful. Room (spa) large and very comfortable with separate lounge area - bathroom functional - all spotlessly clean. Recommended!

The Tower Lodge has spacious, comfortable rooms and is hosted by friendly and helpful owners. If you wanted to cook the kitchen area is well appointed. Great value. You could do a lot worse. Thanks Tower Lodge Motel.

This motel is located in central Invercargill. The accommodation is standard motel style, but includes separate bedroom and ensuite style bathroom and combined lounge/dining and kitchen. It was great to have a stove to cook a meal in. The site is close to supermarkets and other services/facilities. Make sure to have a look at the gardens (diagonally opposite) if you... More

This is a good one. we stayed in a standard room, however if we had realised we could have stayed in a delux room with a spa for only $15 more. The owners/ operators are very helpful. The rooms and linen are the cleanest we have encounted. You will NOT be disappointed.

Finding a nice place to stay in Invercargill in my experience is not easy. This place is impeccable if you like motels. Guess I'm more of a hotel person. To me - very average in my experience. Pleasant and friendly.
