5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stay here every month while on business. I can't speak highly enough of the staff and the accommodation. The rooms are gorgeous and spotlessly clean!! Debbie and Tammy on the front desk are just AWESOME!! The housekeeping staff are so friendly and accommodating. I totally recommend staying here!!! Natalie has a great team working for her and should and will be immensely proud of all her staff. Can't wait to see the girls again ...........

Excellent motel. We took a family room with 2 bedroom and a living room. The room was excellent, nice spacious, clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We received free laundry and some free internet. We are traveling for 3 months in NZ, and this is the best motel we stayed at.

Room Tip: If you are a family, get a family room away from the main road so it is quite.

We arrived on a wet December afternoon, and hurried into the reception where we were warmly greeted but the reception staff. We requested a quiet room away from the main road as I have trouble sleeping in noisy places. The room was allocated to us and we were offered a complimentary newspaper and bottle of milk.

We found our room and entered - These are not really rooms more like apartments, ours had a kitchen / living room, a large bed room with a double and a single bed in it, a bathroom and a toilet.

The room was clean, however the owners apartment was next to ours and they all seemed to smoke which drifted into our apartment (No 25) so we had to close the doors and windows to minimise the smell of the smoke.

The room was on the ground floor and unfortunately there were people staying in the room above and we could hear every foot step thundering through the ceiling.

There are no food facilities here, however they have an arrangement with the next door "Homestead Cobb & Co Restaurant and Bar " so you can reserve a table and even have a cooked breakfast sent over from them.

Parking next to your room was a problem for us as the place was full.

Room Tip: Try and get an upstairs room if you don't want to be disturbed by the footsteps thundering throu...

I love this place, it is a real home away from home when we are in Invers for business. The staff are lovely and welcoming, true friendly Southlanders! I also love that Buster Crab is right accross the road, fabulous!! I am looking forward to our next stay.

We spent two nights in this motel and it was great. The rooms were modern, clean, and well equipped for self contained units. It was a one bedroom unit with plenty of space. Cobb and Co was just across the road but there was also the option to have meals brought in. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we got a good deal on the first night's rate. Washing and drying machines were free of charge We had an enjoyable stay and would definitely come back if passing through again.

The suite we stayed in was huge, with very good facilities. Everything was very clean and luxurious. Staff was very friendly and helpful (they even gave us some bread to feed the ducks in the park!). (Cooked) breakfast was served in the room and of good quality.

We have just had 3 nights staying at this lovely motel complex.
We were lucky enough to stay in The Suite,
The rooms were huge.
The bathroom had a corner spa bath big enough for 3, and one of the 3 flat screen TV'S was in the bathroom.
Another plus in the bathroom, was a separate toilet.
We had a kitchen, dining, lounge area as well as a separate sitting area with a desk and Internet connection.
And the bedroom was very spacious with another telly.
We had a ranch slider that went out to a balcony.
There is a laundry which was free to use and they even provide the laundry liquid.
The staff-we only really had dealings with Debbie, who from my first call to book in June, was the most bubbly motel/hotel receptionist I've met, who has been there nearly 10 years.
I can't wait to go down and stay again.
When you book, of course you can't stay anywhere else, let them no you read a good review on trip advisor.
