Fantastic motel in a great location. The owners went out of their way to be accommodating and even dropped us and our luggage off to our vehicle on the other side of town when we checked out. Fantastic hosts and great price. Would not stay anywhere else in Invercargill.

Situated opposite to Invercargill’s iconic water tower, the appropriately named Tower Lodge Motel provides clean, well maintained and modern accommodation. Our unit had a cosy, welcoming ambience and the layout was excellent – a single bed in the living room (occupied by our 11 year old) and a separate bedroom for me and my wife. The beds are comfortable and... More

This is a great motel, central in the city. A very warm welcome, and while from the outside the units looked older, they had been beautifully upgraded inside. One of our pet gripes about staying in motels, is the lack of lighting if you need to be doing paperwork. This motel would be the best of all the motels and... More

This basic, functional motel offers excellent value for the money. Our one-bedroom unit, immaculate and well-maintained, with a living room/kitchenette, bedroom, and bathroom, surpassed our expectations. We found it convenient to be able to park our car right outside the door. The owners/managers were very helpful in providing info about the town and recommending restaurants. I would highly recommend Tower... More

We were in Invercargill for a friend's wedding and chose to stay at Tower Lodge Motel based on their excellent TA reviews. It didn't disappoint at all, comfortable and spacious room, good central location and very friendly hosts. Would happily recommend and stay here again.

We were en route from Te Anau to Bluff and used this motel for a one night stay. The room was very spacious and clean and very well equipped.
