“Great use of my Fly Buys! :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

it was so simple and easy to ring and book our nights stay at the Comfort Inn Tayesta using my Fly Buys. There was only one glitch - Fly Buys didn't explain there was a $25 fee for the extra person. The Owners rang and explained the charge well before we arrived. We booked a one bedroom unit. The unit was spacious and comfortable and the motel also had access onto a side street so it was easy getting in or out. There was a Day & Night convenience Store on the corner which as handy. I would happily recommend the Comfort Inn Tayesta as a nice comfy clean place to stay at.

This place wasn’t much to look at from the outside, but the one bedroom motel unit we stayed in was very nice. There was a queen bed in the bedroom and a single bed in the lounge. The unit had good cooking facilities and a very nice bathroom along with plenty of room in the lounge and dinning area. It’s a bit out of the city, but in the same general area as a lot of the other motels in Invercargill.

When we arrived at the premises our first thought was, O my why did we book here? But the reception was friendly and we were shown to our room after some very handy tips on what to see (and where to eat) in Invercargill.
We were not really looking forward to our room, but what a surprise!. The whole interior of the room was renovated -- new carpets, new furniture, TV, cutlery & crockery. New kitchen cabinets, stove, kettle, etc. The bathroom was also renovated and everything was new. Such a contrast to the outside!
Obviously we don't know whether all units had been renovated, or whether we were just lucky enough to get a renovated unit.

We stayed here for one night on the way to Te Anau. We arrived very late because the drive to Invercargill was longer than we expected from Dunedin and the owners had stayed late and had even prepared a note so that we would still be able to get to our rooms.

For the price this is a respectable place to stay with everything you would need.

We stayed here for one night. The room was very quite, had a nice homey feel to it, with a small kitchen, living room and separate bedroom, all very clean and modern. The owners were welcoming and helped out with good tips for the area. We forgot to buy a small container for food and asked the owners if they happen to have any. In the morning they told us they searched and in fact had it ready for us which we found very considerate and nice of them! Location wise, there are several restaurant near the motel and a big supermarket a short drive away. It was perfect for a good nights rest.

Wonderful ! The lovely owners can not do enough for you. The rooms feature a queen in the bedroom and a single in the living room. All facilities have been upgraded and renovated, new kitchens, bathrooms, linens, furniture. Everything is sparkling and new, immaculately clean. Just lovely.

We've just returned home from Invercargill where we had a really great stay at the Tayesta Motel on Tay st. The room we had was spacious, warm and very comfortable and the bed was really good.
We can thoroughly this motel to anyone wanting a home away from home in Invercargill. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them during our stay.

Room Tip: Our room which was number 7 was really great and we would choose it again, but they all looked prett...
