“Excellent find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Glad to have found this place. Hosts really helpful. In the heatwave provided with fan (after she had finished using it slaving over the ironing) service indeed! Gate onto the park a real boon. Wonderful rose garden (as good as Christchurch and Wellington!) and worth taking several hours exploring. Good clean comprehensive accom with full oven, plenty of space in living / dining area. Comfortable double & single in bedroom. All very clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need.
Quietly located at end of cul-de -sac. Parking outside.Used 18 motels during our trip of Nth and Sth Island and this was among the best & reasonably priced.

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 3 kids. It is in a fantastic location, right beside Queen's Park, which has lots of fun things to do with kids and it is also located right beside a primary school and our kids were able to use the kids grassy fields like a playground whilst school was finished. The owners were lovely and friendly and gave us some good tips on what to see and do in Invercargill. We would definitely recommend this Motel to families.

We stay once a year at Queens Park Motels when we are in Invercargill for work. Queens Park Motels are well located, being only a short walk (15 mins) to supermarkets, but also at the end of a cul de sac with minimal traffic noise. Queen's Park through the back gate is great for a peaceful walk at the end of the day. Mark and Maureen are always warm and welcoming on our arrival. We find the unit to be well appointed, clean and comfortable.

The internet picture showing the front of the motel gives the impression that it is quite modern. The rooms around the back are not so, however our room was more than adequate for our one night stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful with suggestions for restaurants for an evening meal. Because the weather was against it, we decided not to walk into town and drove instead - about 5 minutes. If planning to cook/eat in your unit, there is a major supermarket about 5 mins drive from the motel.
The motel is in a very quite area, at the end of the no through road and right next to Queens Park and its gardens. In fact there is a gate from the motel into the park which is a beautiful and relaxing place to spend a few hours. While not the most modern or spacious motel, it's peaceful location, spotless condition and friendly owners make it a great value-for-money option.

This motel was easy to find. It was in a nice quiet location but wasn’t far from town. Our rooms were clean and quite spacious. We were comfortable and would stay there again. The owners were friendly and helpful.

I stay twice a year at Queens Park Motels while I am in Invercargill for work. Queens Park Motels are well located - being a short walk from town, but also at the end of a cul de sac with minimal traffic noise.

The owners Mark and Maureen are very accommodating to guests - On previous visits they have been happy to hold my work gear over the weekend while I was away and not using my unit and they have even been so kind as to come and rescue me on a previous visit after a dead car battery left me stranded.

Our rooms are spacious and provide a good work area and the wifi is of a great standard. The motels proximity to Queens Park (over the fence) means a quick round of golf or a walk through Queens Park home is a pleasant way to end the working day.

Highly recommended for your next trip - business or holiday - to Invercargill.
