Spent an unplanned night in Invercargill during a recent holiday in Queenstown when my son had to visit the hospital in Invercargill. The service from Ray and Dawn was truely brilliant. Nothing was too hard and they were willing to help as much as possible. The rooms are clean and tidy and I had a much needed sleep before returning... More

I travel a lot for work and often come to Invercargill and with Ray and Dawn they are also keeping up a constantly clean, tidy and updated room, you are always in good hands. Due to them booking out regularly tonight I had to go in the more expensive room, oh the spa bath is brag worthy. 1 gig which... More

Rooms are spacious and clean. Good water pressure in shower. Large, comfortable beds. Some rooms have full self-catering facilities while others have a microwave, electric jug and an assortment of cutlery/crockery. Very genial hosts who are very welcoming and friendly. Recommended.

We didn't spend much time in Invercargill as we were off to the Catlins, but this place was a nice stop over. Some of the clientele was a bit trashy, but that might have just been the night we stayed. Bed was comfortable and everything was clean.

We pre booked this motel to stay at for one night whilst passing through Invercargill. It was a bad night weatherwise and the unit was spacious clean and comfortable. It had cooking facilities, comfy beds and was very clean. The staff/owner was very welcoming and we would without hesitation use this motel again.

A very well appointed hotel and room. Well laid out and roomy. The management were excellent and more than helpful. Full of advice and provided fantastic advice on restaurants and sight seeing. The place is well located to the parks, gardens, museum and the "fastest indian" . The water tower across the road makes for a perfect land mark when... More

The motel units are very clean and modern. The staff are very helpful and can recommend local restaurants to go to in the area if you do not want to go to the center of town. The hosts are full of helpful information of things to do.

My daughter had just had an emergency operation in Invercargill Hospital and I flew out from the UK to look after her - Dawn and Ray were amazingly caring and hospitable - we truly could not have found two nicer people to help us on that first night she was discharged! The motel had everything you could need, including parking... More

Stopover on way to Te Anau. Ticked all the boxes, clean, tidy, large well appointed room with parking outside the door. Staff very helpful in recommendations for dining and places of interest. Easy to find, just look for the very tall water tower.
