I have been staying at the Balmoral Lodge, fortnightly, now for many years. as someone who is on the road 48 weeks a year it is important to have a great place to stay at the end of the day The Balmoral and it's staff tick all the boxes! The hospitality is first rate with friendly helpful staff. The rooms are spacious and clean. I would highly recommend them as comfortable and friendly place to stay for any business traveller.

Hi There, I was browsing through your listings when I came across the Balmoral Lodge Motel. Your picture for this Motel shows a picture of The Balmoral Lodge which is in Queenstown (completely separate company) :o)

We stayed at the Balmoral Lodge Motel during the Rugby World Cup for one night. The location is absolutely perfect as it is only a five minute walk to the Stadium. We found the rooms a little dark but otherwise they were very adequate. Internet connect very good. Kitchen had all the basics. About a five minute walk to the nearest supermarket.

Stayed in a large 2 br unit with one large bedroom upstairs off a mezzanine area, and another downstairs off the living area. There was tons of room, and the kitchenette area was fully equiped and well designed, with a coffee/tea making area off to one side of the bathroom door, and the kitchenette proper off to the other side. This design made the kitchen area very workable. Beds were large and comfortable. Only drawback was that the downstairs bedroom was directly underneath a bedroom of another unit. It was possible to clearly hear steps in that bedroom - just normal movement not anything abnormal. This could be disturbing when the guest above arises at 5 am. There is internet available on a pay basis, but this is very expensive, and thus should only be used to check emails ($5/100M - on a fast connection!!) But all in all a very nice stay.

We stayed in a two bedroom motel. Lots of space, Tv's in all rooms, bedrooms and lounge, large bathroom - excellent shower and bath. Kitchen was well equipped however no dishwasher. The service was excellent. Owners very helpful and friendly. Close to town. Close to Stadium Southland for those wanting accommodation when attending sporting events - just a few moments drive.

This Motel has a 4 star Qualmark rating and I have to question how that happened?!

The only reason we decided to stay there was because I figured with this above rating it should be ok..... WRONG!

The room was very old, very stuffy and the pillows were soooo lumpy and uncomfortable it was a dreadful night and we certainly didn't sleep well.

The staff at reception tried to be helpful but overall, between the leaking taps in the bathroom handbasin and general "run down" appearance, I would not recommend it to anyone.

We only stayed 1 night , but no problems, clean, quiet and comfy. The room was huge, probably the biggest motel room we've stayed in. The bedroom was upstairs, which could be a problem for small children or the elderly. It was a bit dingy, but nothing that a fresh coat of paint wouldn't fix. It's possible to walk in to Invercargill. On a busy road, like most motels, but far enough back not to hear the traffic noise.
