“Clean, close to stadium, and friendly hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

Chose the location for its proximity to the stadium, which was great, in the end it was just as easy a walk to the city centre too. The twin room was spacious and very clean. Modern facilities. Room layout meant it was very quiet from road/passing traffic noise, eventhough it there was the excitement of Rugby World Cup visitors everywhere! It was a nice surprise to be dropped off at the tourist information office in time for our bus to Stewart Island, which saved us a little walk and dragging our bags alongside! Thanks so much for a lovely stay.

A really friendly place with loads of space and very clean and comfortable. Great loaction for the rugby ground and a short walk into town. We were made very welcome as visiting Scots fans.

Room Tip: All the rooms are away from the road so no problems

Service - very welcoming, helpful, courteous and thoughtful
Room - was exceptionally clean, spacious, very comfortable, fresh and cosy with nice kitchenette, king-size bed, Sky TV and good fascilities. Easy, convenient on-site parking
Location - supermatket & petrol station accross the road, 5 minute walk to township/CBD, good selection of food outlets and local points of interest nearby
Likes/Dislikes - owner/managers of motel were exceptional in their care and attention to our needs, never before been in a room so quiet (ie no disruptive noises), slept & relaxed like never slept or relaxed before, convenient location, very comfortable and not ostentatious. Nothing to dislike about this place

Room Tip: Only been to Invercargill once, for 2 weeks, but just loved our stay at Birchwood Manor Motel

Again, Birchwood has proved why I don't stay anywhere else. Very friendly service, huge rooms, great TV and comfy bed. Cannot fault it at all. You must stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the lazy boy chair in it.
