“Clean and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

This new looking motel is on the main road out of Invercargill with a Pub directly opposite the front door serving food. The welcome could not have been more friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 7, it was enormous...entrance lounge, lounge/diner/kitchen area, large double bedroom and massive bathroom with spa bath and a separate shower.
There was a little road noise, but only if the windows were open.
Behind the reception area was a quiet grassy oasis to sit and contemplate your next move.
Lovely stay in this one

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2009

this seems to be a new one in the bella vista chain. As the others I stayed in, does what it says on the tin - small owner run, tidy, clean and good value.

Two layers of units on the junction of two main roads back from the centre, so a little bit of noise, but easy to find!

Used this as a base for a day trip to Stewart island from Bluff.

  • Liked — new, clean and average
