We stayed here one night and wished we had more time! The hosts were very welcoming and gave us a lot of excellent information on what to see and where to eat in the area. The room was spotless with all the amenities one might need. We took a lovely walk from the motle to the water tower and nearby... More

A very comfortable room, with kitchenette. Extremely clean and comfortable, with car parking space outside the door. Very friendly hosts. Nearby Queens Park is worth a visit, it is just across the road.

The hosts are very proud of their city and the area, giving us all kinds of information. It made us very welcome. We stayed for two nights and were very comfortable. The unit was clean and had what we need to make a dinner in our room. We walked to Queen's Garden which is a must see. We also drove... More

We only stayed here one night but we were made to feel very welcome. The motel is well appointed, clean and spacious. Near a main road but lovely and quiet. We followed up a recommendation for a meal and it turned out to be really good. Would definitely use this motel again.

We enjoyed our stay at this motel. The weather was terrible but the spacious unit allowed us to come and go without feeling cooped up. Unit well equipped to enable a meal to be prepared if need be. Hosts very friendly. Motel well situated, quiet . Lovely restaurant not far away. Worth the stay. Rates reasonable .

We arrived in Invercargill late evening after a long day driving the coastal scenic route from Dunedin. Invercargill is not known for hotel choices. No big chains here. No Holiday Inns etc. So fortunately for us there is the Tower Lodge Motel. Clean. Quiet. Central location. Super nice owner/operators. I'll just add my voice to the 5 star reviews already... More

We stayed one night, but would have been happy staying longer. We were prepared to pay for the wifi, but the proprietor gave it to us for free, which was awesome. He also recommended a nice place for dinner, and a couple interesting stops around town for the morning. The room was well laid out and very pleasant and comfortable.... More

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
