Cramped room. Heater kept going off. Electric blanket worked intermittently. You have to step up into shower which is slippery coming out. No fan in bathroom and whdn you pull shower curtain across......hardly any light. Paper thin walls. Proprietor nice and friendly but wont stay again.

they need the reception to be open until at least 10pm and the phone from the unit to be answered 24/7. Did not appreciate arriving at 6pm and having to wait 5 minutes in the freezing cold waiting for someone to open up after having to call on a cell phone the number on the door. Later, we dialled "0"... More

Stayed here on a work trip so wasn't expecting anything spectacular, and right I was. The rooms, the restaurant, the overall layout was just plain ordinary. The room decor was weak and the meal we had at dinner was overpriced for what was actually served on the plate, which in itself took far too long. An undercooked potato did not... More

Don't believe a word they say about 'our place is yours, make yourself at home'. I've stayed in hotels/motels/airbnb the world over & never encountered a place quite like this - Fawlty Towers without the redeeming humour! Unapproachable, defensive & downright rude are apt adjectives for the proprietor & her off-sider. The only 'cheap' thing about this overpriced, drab &... More

Stayed 2 nights at end of winter - Disappointing - Very average, basic accommodation. Outdated decor and bedding No heating in shower. Free WIFI useless & slow. Proprietress and checkout receptionist quite unfriendly. Unwilling to accept feedback and questions without becoming annoyed and defensive. The 'Restaurant' meal was the worst I've ever had. Very overpriced - very basic, bland and... More

We stayed in the cabins. It is very basic accommodation, though clean. The kitchen has no utensils, so please be aware of this if you are a backpacker. Not a place to chill or hang, but alright to get your head down for a night. There are definately better places in Invercargill in the same price range!

A little dated and behind the times, could use a revamp but still a very nice place to stay. Very friendly and welcoming staff who make you feel at ease from the moment you arrive. Fairly basic rooms but perfectly acceptable given the price. Coachman's Inn really has a small town charm despite being located in Invercargill and conjures up... More

The staff where lovely and helpful and went the extra mile, by far the most welcoming staff we came accross on our holiday. The rooms were clean, though could do with a little redecorating. Also putting a family in a room under a group of noisy contractors was not ideal, and the plumbling was very noisy, but overall good value... More
