“Roomy, quiet accommodation with friendly host”
Reviewed February 11, 2011

This hotel was one of our favourites on our trip to the South Island. The room was surprisingly roomy and the shower and spa bath were absolutely beautiful. The host was lovely & friendly and gave us excellent suggestions on what to see in Invercargill and surrounds. We were so impressed with the accommodation especially since it was such a good price. We would recommend that you go to the Queens Park and Southland Museum and Art Gallery. And there are a lot of great shops in Invercargill - even a Starbucks! :) If you would like a nice pub meal, try the Irish pub Waxy O'sheas - great meals, good atmosphere and decent price.

In any of our road trip, we try to look for the newer and cleaner acommodations. This is definately one of them. Design was sleek and trendy, Just off the main highway 1. You wont miss it if you are driving within the speed limit. Reception lady was friendly and helpful. It is located together with all the other motels in Invercargil. Good value for money. Room is spacious and clean. Lotsa of space in the toilet and bedrooms. And branded kitchen applicances like fridge and hob and hood. Not that we use it , just to mentioned to those who love branded kitchen wares.

Stayed here for overnight stop in Invercargill. We apparently had one of the more compact studios which was still very spacious - the bathroom was huge! Everything spotlessly clean and the hosts particularly friendly and helpful.

Following Trip Advisor reviews, we chose 388 Tay and were pleased with our stay. We are fussy about our accommodations, too, but found this to be very nice.The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was large and modern with both a spa tub and shower. Everything is there if you want to prepare a meal. Invercargill was a resting spot for us as we traveled from the Southern Scenic route to Te Anua. It proved to be convenient for the one night. Groceries, restaurants and petrol were easy to find. 388 Tay was at the end of town where the majority of the motels were located and this was not a problem at all. It was quiet and Dianne at the front desk was very nice and helpful. We definitely recommend this one.
