Reviewed January 27, 2014

This motel offers excellent facilities for those travelling with small children - close access to Invercargill's premier park, two playgrounds in very close proximity and a playhouse on site. Good sized laundry facilities, quiet cul de sac location with no traffic and playing fields next door to kick a ball around. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

Thank you for taking time to review our motel and thank you for your outstanding recommendation. We are a very child friendly motel with playgrounds, park and school grounds next door. The two bedroom apartments are used a lot by families and the laundry facilities are used frequently. We are very happy that you enjoyed your quiet stay in our motel at the end of the cul de sac.
All the best.

Manager very welcoming and accommodating. Gave me full cream milk in a jug when he only had Trim in the usual guest bottle. Very clean and well equipped.Well positioned for walks in the beautiful park and shopping .

This Motel was recommended to us by the owners of the Portobello Motels in Dunedin & we were not disappointed. Immaculately clean with everything we might need. The owners were very friendly & helpful. Our unit was next to the lions by the entrance so it was very easy to come & go without disturbing anyone else. It was always a delight to come back to after a trip out into the countryside. A highlight was listening to the Tuis each morning & evening. So lovely being so close to Queens Park for a recreational walk. We would definitely like to stay here again if we are down this way.

Thank you Lindsay and Judy for reviewing your stay in our motel. We are happy that the unit was clean and we have passed these comments to our dedicated staff.
Queens Park gardens are a true asset to our city and we are so lucky being the only motel next to the park. Nothing like a walk in the park on a Southland summers day.!!
All the best

Really enjoyed our stay. The manager was really nice and he was kind enough to accommodate my request of having all 6 of us in the same unit. He gave us fresh towels each day of our stay which was so thoughtful. I accidentally broke the knobs for the oven as I twisted it and the manager was very gracious and didn't charge us for it. Overall, we had a good experience!

Three Adults in a 2 bedroomed motel. The room was immaculately clean with modern furnishings and I would say quite recently redecorated. Staff were friendly and helpful. Queen's Park is right next door so nice for a quiet stroll or if you have kids that need to let off some steam. This was our second stay at this motel and we will return again.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 1, One Queen bed in one brm, 2 singles in the second. The Queen bed takes up most of...

We stayed at this great little motel earlier in the year and really enjoyed the home from home atmosphere. The closeness to Queens Park is a real advantage. The owners are extremely helpfull and being at the end of a cul de sac ensures that it is quiet and that you will get a good nights sleep.

We stayed here during the Bluff Oyster festival, in a 2 bedroom unit. The Hosts were friendly and helpful, and made us feel welcome.
Our apartment was very clean and warm. The unit was a good size and with 4 adults in it we didn't feel at all cramped. The beds were comfortable and the unit was well equipped.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and would recommend to any one wanting good clean accommodation at a reasonable price

Room Tip: Didn't see a fitness centre, but can't remove rating.

Yes, our apartments are clean and warm with comfortable beds and the units are well equipped.Our staff do a wonderful job in cleaning the rooms and I will again pass this compliment on to them.
We have never advertised that we had a fitness centre, but we have a running track in the school grounds next door and walking track with exercises in the park throught the back gate.

We are really happy that you all were able to enjoy the Oyster festival and that you may return again in the future. Thank you for taking time out to comment on our own Queens Park Motels.
All the best
