Brian and Anne Scott are convivial hosts. Brian gives lots of good advice on where to eat and what to see in Invercargill. He also says the climate of Invercargill is milder than people have been led to believe, and points to his garden as proof of this. The apartments (all single storey) are older constructions, well-built, with spacious rooms. These have been refurbished regularly throughout their lives. The entire apartment, including bathroom and kitchen, is meticulously clean and all rooms are fresh-smelling.The open plan kitchen/lounge is modern, with a recliner armchair and a sofa, a table and two chairs. The kitchen is basic but with a full range of utensils and cutlery. The benchtop is new, the plumbing works as it should, and the electric heater is formidable. Our unit had one separate bedroom with a queen bed. We spent a comfortable night and slept well because the room was quiet and dark. The price is the same for both one and two bedroom apartments, with a surcharge for extra guests. Our four friends did very well out of that deal! A pub nearby supplied annoying boom-boom music but this stopped at 10 p.m. To be honest, if the motel had not been so quiet one would hardly have noticed. Breakfast was a reasonable price, although guests could get their own meals if so desired. Brian invites guests to help themselves to produce in the garden if preparing their own meals, a very friendly gesture. A covered space next to the apartment ensures your car is safe from the elements.The motel is well located, but a car or taxi is needed if you wish to venture further than the nearby supermarket, pub and restaurants.
