We stayed here for 2 nights in February 2016. The unit was very clean, modern and well-presented. Staff helpful and friendly. Location a bit too far to walk into the city centre on a busy road. Our unit was far enough away from the road that we couldn't hear traffic at night, but this may be a problem for some... More

I have been coming here regularly on business for years. The owners are always very friendly and welcoming. The units are immaculately clean, and the beds the best anywhere. I like that the units are spacious enough to include both bath and shower and a skylight in the bathroom, with underfloor heating which is great in winter. There is a... More

We only stayed for one night due to time constraints but wish we had been able to stay longer. The unit was well set up with all mod cons and Annabel and John went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable including a very tasty breakfast including bacon and eggs.

Stayed there just one night, but the place is spotlessly clean and the towels and linen are of excellent quality. The team there were tremendously helpful. Would happily recommend this place to anyone visiting Invercargill.

We stayed here for 4 nights on the recommendation of a fellow traveller. It is an older style motel but the owners have done everything they can to provide for guests.

We stayed in an older style one-bedroom unit with some walls painted concrete block and décor generally a bit run down and shabby although everything very clean. There is a basic kitchenette suitable for breakfast or heat and eat evening meals. Somewhat awkward bathroom arrangement. Comfortable bed. Some problems screening out light at night. The main drawback was that we... More
