“Birchwood Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Warm & friendly welcome. The rooms were good size, warm and very clean, like the fact that toilet and bathroom separate, great parking and comfy beds. Close to town, shops and Restaurants but still quiet. Wifi was quick and strong too. Will use this one again anytime. Cooking facilities were clean and handy with the Supermarket across the road.

Room Tip: Think all the rooms looked good

After a long drive in the rain we were glad to have chosen the Birchwood Manor as it's very easy to find and is conveniently situated close to all the amenities you'd want but far enough from town to be quiet, despite being on a main road.
The welcome we received was second to none and car parking was very close to our room. The room was large and comfortable with a decent sized bathroom.
Restaurants within easy walking distance or choose one which offers free courtesy bus (we took the latter).
We only stayed for one night on our tour of South Island but wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we should return to Invercargill.

Birchwood Manor Hotel is located conveniently in Invercargill and is across the road from a big supermarket. I stayed in a one bedroom unit. The room was clean, airy and well maintained. Also very spacious with television sets in both living and sleeping quarters. Hosts David and Sue are very friendly and have valuable tips to offer about the city and surrounds. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for several days and found this to be a comfortable motel with excellent hosts. Great central location on Tay Street within walking distance of the city centre. Will happily book here next time we are visiting Invercargill.

Room was clean and well appointed. Only had one mirror which was in the bathroom. The room was an older style but all worked properly. Hosts were very accommodating and gave us helpful advice regarding local sights and travel routes.

A one night stay was all we had. It is on a main road but the volume of traffic is negligible and we did not hear the traffic. The room was clean and well presented. The park across the way is worth a look as it just like the parks in England during the 70's a real treat.
