Reviewed December 13, 2011

A lovely quiet unit backing onto the fantastic Queens Park. Lovely walk to town and golf at your back door. Spacious units and very accomodating owners. .

Room Tip: We had a unit which backed onto the park.

A good, reasonably priced motel. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable, and the shower and kitchen work well.
It is located in a pleasant area, backing on to the delightful Queen's Park. Downtown Invercargill would be a short drive away or a 30 minutes walk. However, there are a number of restaurants near Queen's Park. We ate at the Buster Crabb, which we recommend.

Looking for a nice and comfortable place in the Southland? The Queens Park Motel in Invercargill is nicely outside the busy city centre, yet within easy reach. Its location adjacent to a giant park with plenty of trees and plants and fresh air invites to great walks. The owners Mr. & Mrs. Gane make sure you feel comfortable and happy during your stay.

Nice place to take a break after tours around Southland. Great service from the hosts. Excelent for those who like to walk at the park in the morning.

From the warm welcome onwards staying here was a great success. Right on the edge of the park with some excellent walks, set in a quiet cul de sac but only 10 minutes walk from the town centre this was just what we were looking for.
Only suggestion would be to ask for an upstairs room as the sound insulation is poor if you are on the ground floor and if the room above is late returning or early leaving you have little chance of sleeping throgh it.

This was our second trip to the South Island and had already done the big tourist icons, Mount Cook, Milford Sound, Dunedin, Fox and Franz Joseph glaciers etc. People said to us, don't worry about Invercargill, not much down there. They couldn't have been more wrong. We found the Queens Park motel from the AA accommodation guide. Lovely quiet location away from the noisy main thoroughfares (most accommodation is on busy Tay Street). Your neighbors are a school oval and the glorious Queen's Park. After unpacking take the back gate and explore the park - the golf course, free bird aviary and animal farm, the i-centre with museum and a display of live ancient tatura lizards (so can also see these after hours through the glass wall from the park). Invercargill is a surprising city. Good shopping and great base for daytrips to Bluff for the oysters, Stewart Island and the Caitlins scenic drive. We were going to stay two nights, but extended to four. Owners are very helpful with ideas on where to go and what to see. We had a studio, which was okay for the two of us with basic kitchen. One bedroom for not much more looked roomy when I peeped in.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms to guage size needs. All good.

We booked this motel direct with the property, based on Trip Advisor reviews, and were not disappointed. From our first contact to our check-out, the host, Mark, was very helpful and informative. The motel is hidden away off the highway, and adjacent to the lovely Queens Park - there is a tourist information "i-site' in the park - very helpful. The rooms are well appointed, with good cooking facilities and plenty of crockery etc for our party of six. The free laundry and internet were a nice bonus. There is a supermarket, bank etc just five minutes drive away. Whilst the motel is not the newest in Invercargill, it is well maintained and looks recently refurbished. We would stay there again.
