We arrived in Invercargill with no idea where to stay, saw the sign for Balmoral so pull in. Got a very lovely villa, it was clean, roomy and a very comfy bed. The bedroom was upstairs with a half wall you could look over down into the lounge area. Balmoral was actually one of the cheapest places we stayed while...

We booked a two bedroom unit for 3 nights and arrived after a pleasant drive through the Catlins. We were welcomed warmly by our host and entered our unit. We were thrilled with the modern decor, spaciousness of the unit and the facilities provided. The kitchen was very well supplied right down to the coffee plunger. The bathroom had under...

I booked a night in the deluxe room with spa bath for my partners birthday. We stayed in Room 36 and it was fantastic. The room was clean and tidy, the bedroom was upstairs in a loft style room. There was a huge tv in the downstairs area as well as a smaller wall mounted one in the bedroom. The...

We arrived early from Queenstown and were allowed an early check in. Our unit 7 offered ample space 'as living room', an und stair loft with the beds, a kitchen and a bathroom. Everything well furnished and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay.

It's not often your jaw drops when you enter a motel room, but mine did with my suite at the Balmoral. Downstairs I had a lovely big living room and huge bathroom with jet spa bath, and then upstairs, on the mezzanine floor, I had a genuine Victorian brass bed, beautifully appointed and incredibly comfortable! I felt like I'd moved...

We stayed for one night at balmoral lodge and enjoyed it very much. The beds were extremely comfortable, better than most I've slept on. The people are lovely and ready to help. And the shower was hot and tidy. It was a little outdated; but it's only a place to sleep. I would like to thank the staff and owners...

We stayed here and were very impressed with everything about the place. The reception area was large, lots of tourist info on display, friendly receptionist, free lollies and complimentary pens.

We had the one bedroom apartment. 4 of us slept comfortably. 2 TV's limited wifi but they gave us a bunch of codes to use for our teenagers. Great staff, helpful and friendly. Room was a little dated but it was very clean. We recommend it. Lots of room.
