We stayed 2 nights in a 1bd. spa unit after reading other reviews. This is high quality accommodation which has been thoughtfully designed for the user,not the motel owner/operator. Extremely comfortable,new ,quiet,spacious, clean and user friendly .Thanks to the published reviewers. Many satellite tv channels not the usual 5. We would certainly recommend this motel as a base to explore the Invercargill/Bluff/Stewart Island area.

Room Tip: I BD SPA with ground private outdoor area away from road I would think even the room close to road...

We stayed 1 night at the 2 bedroom unit and ABSOLUTELY loved it! The place was impeccably clean, neat and the hostess was so welcoming that we wished we could have stayed longer. She was very helpful, friendly and was quick to be at reception when we arrived. Loved the stay at 388 Tay St and would highly recommended it to anyone needing a place to stay.

As a couple, we stayed 2 nights in the executive suite and found it one of the best stays during our NZ tour. The bedroom room is very quiet, the spa is great, the kitchenette is very well outfitted and the unit is exceptionally clean. Much of the accommodation in Invercargill seems to be on Tay Street. It's not a central location but not much accommodation in this city is in the CBD area. This doesn't seem to deter too many as most motels had 'no vacancy' signs up during our stay in early January so I suggest booking ahead.

Room Tip: The executive room is worth the extra cost.

After a long wet and not that inspiring drive through the Catlins from Dunedin this was a ray of sunshine.

The genuine warm welcome and lovely suite may the journey worthwhile. As others has said this is not that central - rather a 15 min or so walk to town, less to supermarkets and places to eat.

The Exec suite had a good sized lounge / diner, kitchenette, decent bedroom and bathroom - all spotless and very comfortable. We did walk into town and I fear midweek and wet this did not show it's best colours, but there is a welcoming Speights bar being the highlight.

Highly recomended if you're in this area.

Clean, large, warm and comfortable rooms. Very friendly service. Everything in the room was pretty new and in good order. On the strip with other motels and a short drive into town.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this motel. The service was very friendly and we had booked an Executive Suite which was quite large and comfortable with a small kitchenette. There were no views. Although on the main road into town, the room was very quiet. There were two TVs - one in the lounge and one in the bedroom. We drove into town for all meals including breakfast.

Room Tip: We were very happy with the Executive Suite which wasn't much more expensive that the standard s...
