the rooms were gorgeous and clean, they had a huge spare floor with a huge balcony overlooking the city. The only downfall was trying to find parking, but it is worth it. Other hotels charge a lot more for a lot less. This hotel is right downtown and you can walk all over. If I knew about this place the night before, I would have stayed here even longer.

We had a 3 bedroom apartment which catered for 6 people, but there was only 3 chairs to sit in at the table. The lounge was very small. The sink in the bathroom gave you no room to spit after brushing your teeth. The cleanliness was average. We paid $174 for 5 people but could of gotten nicer accommodation for the same price elsewhere. If we could of left to change it we would of. It was right in town but very, very noisy.

Dear Sharon,

Thank you for your review. I appreciate your comments about the 3 chairs to sit at the table in a 3 bedroom - this is something we can certainly look at.

Our 3 bedroom apartments in downtown Invercargill are something of a rarity (there are no other 3 bedroom apartments in the city) - we do our best to provide you value for money with a comfortable stay at the same time. I am disappointed to read that your stay was not up to your satisfaction. I hope next time your travels will be better.

Regardless, take care and thank you for your time.

Bed, shower, toilet, kitchenette with crockery, cutlery, glasses and a microwave. Water for drinking available from coolers at each level. We paid under $55 and got everything we needed for an overnight in invercargill on our way to Stewart Island. We chose to stay here again on our way back. Recommended. It was very clean and well located, with several closeby eateries too!

We came to this place for one night before setting off to Stewart Island. The staff is very friendly and kindly and flexibly offered us a new room when we discovered that the window of the first room was not closing. Rooms are small but sufficient, and sufficiently equipped. The interior is a little strange because the walls are freshly painted, and the carpets seem to be new, all in modern design. There are nice paintings on the walls which fit in the modern approach. In contrast the furniture has defintely seen some days, but is still in order. And the wired-glas windows are from ancient times... However, the stay was satisfying and quiet, so we would come again. Thank you!

Love the compact room. It was very functional. Very central too, you couldn't ask for more. The best part is, the staff were very friendly! It was very near everything - shopping, eating, cinema and the SIT school campuses. Very well priced - great value!

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but the Budget rooms are really good value, clean and with kitchenette facilities. Free wifi and access to gym included. Discount prices on booking.com. I recommend rooms on the 4th floor. There is a huge dining/living area with a balcony with a BBQ.
