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.

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

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.

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.
