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.

Came to Invercargill to give a lecture, and they put me up at the Tower Lodge. Wow. First of all, the room was Like New -- spotless and flawless, and beautifully appointed. A whole stove and oven, every single possible cooking thing (plunger, pots and pans, corkscrew), three couches and a nice tv, spa bath, and all spacious. But also... More

This motel gets excellent ratings and it is easy to see why. We stayed in March 2014 in a one bedroom unit for one night, but would happily have stayed here longer. Ray on the front desk was welcoming and informative. The room was well furnished, clean and comfortable. Free wi-fi too, which is always welcome. If you are looking... More
