The owners were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Parking was good. The room was comfortable and warm, despite strong wind outside. The area was quiet, the setting pleasant and the general condition of the hotel was good and clean.

We stayed at the Tower Lodge for 6 days. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by Ray. He had a map marked out for us as we were in Invercargill for NZ Boxing Champs. He had also marked out other places to visit. Our unit was comfy and clean. We had everything we needed for our stay. The...

After a terrible stay at Balclutha, all we wanted was a quiet night before travelling on to Te Anau. The lady who checked us in was so helpful and full of so many ideas on what to do and where to eat, we seriously considered staying longer. We are finding that the warmth of welcome directly relates to how good...

We stayed at the Tower Lodge on two occasions in September 2015, while heading to and then returning from Stewart Island. While certainly not an inner city international hotel, the Tower Lodge does what it needs to do well. An initial issue with our booking (Agoda allowed me to book a room configuration that was not available) was dealt with...

Spent an unplanned night in Invercargill during a recent holiday in Queenstown when my son had to visit the hospital in Invercargill. The service from Ray and Dawn was truely brilliant. Nothing was too hard and they were willing to help as much as possible. The rooms are clean and tidy and I had a much needed sleep before returning...

I travel a lot for work and often come to Invercargill and with Ray and Dawn they are also keeping up a constantly clean, tidy and updated room, you are always in good hands. Due to them booking out regularly tonight I had to go in the more expensive room, oh the spa bath is brag worthy. 1 gig which...

The units are sparkling clean and very comfortable with modern TV's showing 7 SKY channels including Movies and 3 x Sport. I was given a free 1GB of Internet voucher and...

Rooms are spacious and clean. Good water pressure in shower. Large, comfortable beds. Some rooms have full self-catering facilities while others have a microwave, electric jug and an assortment of cutlery/crockery. Very genial hosts who are very welcoming and friendly. Recommended.

We didn't spend much time in Invercargill as we were off to the Catlins, but this place was a nice stop over. Some of the clientele was a bit trashy, but that might have just been the night we stayed. Bed was comfortable and everything was clean.

We pre booked this motel to stay at for one night whilst passing through Invercargill. It was a bad night weatherwise and the unit was spacious clean and comfortable. It had cooking facilities, comfy beds and was very clean. The staff/owner was very welcoming and we would without hesitation use this motel again.
