We have just stayed at this motel for four nights with several families due to a sports competition in the city. Dianna was excellent to deal with, she was very understanding when I had to change our booking several times and made the process very easy. The motel rooms are absolutely spotless, they are cleaned and serviced to a high... More

Very clean and tidy, unit has been renovated in very good taste, all new bathroom, kitchen facilities.. We were made most welcome and ended up staying an extra night as snow and rain came in and we could not drive safely to Te Anau until this was cleared. We had a good look around Invercargill including the Transport Museum complex... More

This accommodation is great for any one rooms are modern and clean and quiet Diana is very efficient. Is a couple of km from down town is the only complaint but worth sky TV in every room you will be comfortable.

We decided on a last minute stay as had a funeral to attend. The 2 bedroom motel was luxurious, with a huge lounge and everything sparkling clean. It was a cold night and the manager would have had it heated if we had given her prior notice of our booking. Our relatives stayed in the smaller motel for 3 nights... More

I have now stayed at 388 on Tay on two occasions and even though there was almost 12 months between the trips, I was welcomed as warmly as a frequent guest. The rooms are clean, spacious and my unit had a very well equipped kitchenette. The bedroom was very dark and quiet so perfect for a good night's sleep. A... More

We stayed 4 nights at 388 on Tay. This is a very comfortable motel - we had a two bedroom unit. Dianna was very pleasant and friendly to deal with. The unit was super clean and very spacious. Thank you so much - We would love to stay again. (Sorry for the delay in reviewing)

... that we could only stay one night in this fantastic motel. We booked a studio and a one-bedroom apartment. The studio was really large with a roomy bathroom. The one-bedroom was also big and comfortable with an excellent, well-stocked kitchen and a huge bathroom. Everything was sparkling clean, smart and new. We were so impressed. Easily one of the...

Spacious and well laid out facilities with a separate bedroom and en suite bathroom. Extremely comfortable although a fair walk to the nearest decent restaurant. We only stayed one night en route to Stewart Island.

The host was a real pleasure. The motel was in a good location and very well maintained and clean. Would recommend this motel in a heartbeat. Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent washing facilities if you are there for a few days as we were.

So good to come back and stay at 388 Tay again.... this is my 2nd or 3rd visit and it remains consistently a great place to stay. Clean and comfortable and with friendly hosts. I always like to stay at a place you can drive your car right to you door and easy to load & unload luggage. Bed was... More
