This is a great motel very close to the centre of invercargill so handy to the shops I like to visit namely H&J Smiths
We have stayed a couple of times now, this time for a horse event so enjoyed the spa bath in the evening. Thanks again, we'll be back

Thank you for writing a review about our property, it was good to have you both staying with us again, yes our location is very central and just a short walk to the city centre including a major department store and restaurants, also being situated opposite countdown supermarket is very convenient. We hope to see you both again during your next visit to Invercargill.

I recently attended a family wedding in Invercargill and chose to stay at Best Western Townsman Motor Lodge. What a great location! Easy walking distance to everywhere, and a supermarket right across the road. The staff are so helpful and friendly - Tony [Manager], Dorothy & Marissa get special mention. Nothing was too much to ask of them, and they always assisted with a smile and the correct information/answer. I will stay again on my next visit [whenever that may be!] My studio room was upstairs, but easily accessible and the staff took luggage up and down for me. The room was wonderfully large - just perfect for a 5 day stay.

I regularly stay here for work. The staff are unfailingly cheerful, friendly and helpful and the motel is a short walk from the town centre where there are plenty of great restaurants. The rooms are large, warm and quiet and always very clean. The staff have always been very helpful when it comes to early check ins and late check outs.

Room Tip: Rooms set furthest from the road get most natural light in the evenings

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in February and we were very pleased with our stay. We were met in reception by Tony who could not have been more helpful if he tried! He provided us with maps and guides for the town and advised us on what to do and where to go. Our room was huge! Nicely appointed with a kitchen, dining table and fresh clean bathroom. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get out of it! All in all a very pleasant stay in a lovely place.

We arrived tired and hungry at 8 pm, and with no reservation. The BW had two rooms left. Tony, the manager, could not have been more accommodating, and the rooms were immaculate and spacious. There is no dining room, but if you wish, breakfast is brought to your room at an appointed time. There are adequate choices on a checklist to be submitted the night before. We came to Invercargill in order to visit E. Hayes Hardware, home of "The World's Fastest Indian" memorabilia. We decided to explore the area a bit more, so the next afternoon we were back at the BW to book a room for another night, having checked out that morning. Our second room was even better than the first, as the motel is updating their bathrooms, and our room was one of these.
