This hotel is full of character, and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Not the cheapest in its class but great location close to the small town center and a great pub at the other end of the alley.My room was very nice and very large, but very functional and full of character.

We were traveling by bus from Dunedin, on our way to Bluff to catch the Stewart Island ferry. The connection time seemed tight so we decided to spend the night in Invercargill and take the late morning ferry the next day. Our stay at the Railway Hotel made it all worthwhile. The first floor lobby and dining room have been... More

This is not a 5 star hotel! However it is full of character and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Not the cheapest in its class but great location close to the small town centre. Rooms were quaint but very functional and full of character.

Delightfully furnished, spacious, spotlessly clean, recently renovated and well maintained. Rose and Peter were extremely welcoming, providing directions and places of interest. We had a drink in the cosy bar downstairs followed by fish and chips (huge... More

Our one night stay was very comfortable. Hosts were friendly and helpful and brekky was good. We enjoyed a nightcap in the small bar chatting to Peter and Rose about New Zealand after dining at the Irish pub in town. We had a large ground floor room on the corner. Close to the road but little traffic noise. The hotel... More

This hotel is a bit of railway history brought up to date with wifi and en suite bathrooms. Both dinner and continental breakfast were excellent (and great value!) The hosts are genuinely friendly and happy to help. One even walked with me to an address I needed to find to make sure I didn't end up going in the wrong... More

We really liked this well preserved bit of railway history, the rooms are excellent and up to date with all mod cons and a really comfortable bed, the welcome you receive is warm and friendly and you are made to feel special from the moment you arrive. Breakfast offered is well presented and tasteful and we would recommend the hotel... More
