I can't count any more how many times I have stayed at the Kelvin Hotel since I first visited Invercargill in 1987. It feels like part of the furniture of being in Invercargill despite being run by the Licensing Trust. I like especially that the...More

Our room was very very warm and the window only opens a tad. They brought us a fan. The employees were very nice. They said the warm weather was unusual. Must be true as other hotels also have no air conditioning. The beds are too...More

Went with my daughter and Grandson. Food was good but not as good as I remember it many years ago. I thought it was slightly overpriced for what we received.

Thank you Julia for your feedback. We make sure all our prices are inline with the market. If you are wanting some cheaper meal options why not try our Wednesday night special or our current Friday night steak promotion? Aaron

I had several meals here during my stay. There is an excellent choice of food and wines by the glass, accompanied by good service. While I am not an oyster enthusiast, I did love the blue cod they served.
