The hosts are friendly, go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the rooms are warm, clean and comfortable. We also appreciated the little things like finding tissues and paper towels as it meant we didn't need to make a late night dash to the shop (had snotty kids and adults). This is the second time we...

A Clean tidy and functional motel. The beds are comfortable and the location is good for getting around Invercargill. It is advertised as quiet but is on the main road North and doesn't have double glazing.

You were near the road as we were fully booked and you did get our last Studio but we do have a lot of guests that always ask for that unit. When it was built which was before our time I understand they had it soundproofed and as i have spent time in there while on crutches I didn't find...
